Michael Ash – Personal Trainer

Michael Ash is a personal trainer with a passion for fitness and helping others achieve their goals.

From a young age, he was always active and involved in sports, particularly track and field. He loved the feeling of pushing my body to its limits and seeing the results of his hard work.

As he got older, he became more interested in bodybuilding and weight training. He spent countless hours in the gym, learning everything he could about the human body and how to build muscle mass. He quickly discovered that the key to success in this field was not just about lifting weights, but also about proper nutrition and rest.

With this in mind, he began studying nutrition and meal planning, experimenting with
different diets and supplements to find what worked best for him. He soon realized that this was an area where he could make a real difference for others as well. So, he decided to become a personal trainer and share his knowledge and passion with others.

Since then, he has worked with a variety of clients, from beginners to seasoned athletes,
helping them to achieve their fitness goals and live healthier lives. Whether it’s developing customized workout plans, creating meal plans tailored to their individual needs, or just providing motivation and support, he is always dedicated to helping his clients succeed.

Alex Zink – Personal Trainer

Hi, I’m Alex!

I grew up in a small town in Kansas where I spent most of my time outside with my horses. I have always enjoyed being active and living a healthy lifestyle but it really took off while I was finishing college. The gym became my escape and I loved seeing the progress of my work. Currently, my focus has been learning the ropes of CrossFit and improving my strength and endurance. I’m very excited to start training others and sharing my passion for fitness!
