Filling Out Your Sleeves

Power Athlete Radio strives to host guests who are smarter and better looking than us. This week we hit the mark with long time buddy and Underground Strength Gym Coach, Zach Even-Esh [@Zevenesh]. It seems like each conversation with him on the show is like a kick in the pants. No one knows how to motivate quite like Mr Old School himself. The timing of this chat couldn’t be better as the current quarantine regulations have quickly separated the truly driven athletes from the ones who have just been going through the motions. Coach Z discusses how from his perspective, he’s been preparing his athletes all along, constantly reminding them that if the only time they are training is when they come to see him, they can hardly consider themselves competitive athletes. This episode has everything: coaching talk, lifting legends, movie heroes, and plenty of the raspy one-liners of inspiration you’ve come to expect from Zach Even-Esh. 

There are some things you should know about Zach Even-Esh. His affinity for the days of Old School training, movies, and mentality are not coincidental. It’s a reflection of his passion for the pursuit of greatness…and not just by any means necessary. It’s hard work that will fill the sleeves and put points on the scoreboard. Zach preaches to his youth athletes that to be successful you have to embody that work ethic when people are not watching. This was the mentality of the days of Old School, before the internet romanticized six pack abs and training gimmicks. Zach believes real life changing results occur when it’s just you in your garage lifting or out in a parking lot sprinting…and those results are not limited to the physical transformation. He’s the coach every wants but very few deserve. Listen NOW!
