His foundation for health began with personal training. He enjoys a variety of sports, including Tough Mudder runs, rock climbing, tennis and mountain biking. When not working, he can be found hiking with his wife and dog, cheering for the San Francisco Giants or working on cars in his garage.
"Zachary was a good listener and provided all the options for remedies and the geographical options for PT. I especially liked observing the exact condition of my spine (X-rays) and learning about the source of my pain." — Fernando
