Meet the Owner...
Aloha Everyone, this is Zak the owner and creator of the BodyBall Fitness Free-Weight. I live on the Kona side of the Big Island, Hawaii. I have been here for over 6 years now but I m originally born and raised in New Jersey. I am a former Marine Combat Veteran serving from 2004-2008. I fought in Afghanistan and Iraq as an Infantryman Team leader and Squad Leader part of 1st Battalion 3rd Marines C. Company (LavaDogs) stationed in Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii.
After my Honorable Discharge in 2008, I attended collage and received a degree in Physical Education. During my collage years I also be came a Certified Personal Trainer for NASM which is the National Academy of Sports Medicine. I have been a trainer for over 10 years now and hold numerous other NASM credentials like Fitness Nutrition Specialist, Weight Loss Specialist and MMA Conditioning Specialist just to name a few.
My hobbies include working out, guitar, watching movies, tattoos, MMA, Jiu-Jitsu, surfing, guns, learning new skills, helping others, skydiving, airsoft guns and anything else that is fun and interesting. I am a life long practitioner of Martial Arts from Combat Karate, Mantis Kung Fu, Boxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Marine Corps Martial Arts Program (MCMAP).
I currently work at Pacific Island Fitness in Kailua Kona, Hawaii for about 5 years as a personal fitness trainer. I run my own training business You vs You Fitness. I have helped hundreds of clients lose thousands of pounds of unwanted body fat. When my training day is over, I spend the rest of my time building businesses and helping others accomplish their goals.
Anyways, I just wanted to introduce myself and hopefully you found some common similarities between us. Feel free to ask me any questions! Looking forward to hearing from you and if your ever in Hawaii and want to do a meet up, workout together or need some local advice on what to do on the island just let me know. Talk to you all soon.
