Meet Zach St Aubyn
My introduction into training started like a lot of people: high school sports. I played football and I made gaining weight a priority. I did this with unhealthy food and poor choices, but at the time I didn’t know better. In college, I continued training but made getting lean a priority and also made poor choices, including excessive amounts of cardio and low food.
As I got older, I continued to train but my weight and activity level varied from one extreme to the next. I was lean one year and overweight the next. I would complete sprint triathlons and 6 months later do nothing. This rollercoaster continued until 2012 when I injured my back. I was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease at the age of 32, and three major back surgeries followed. I spent the next six years being overweight and in constant pain. I had gotten to my heaviest weight ever and my health and body image declined rapidly. I had given up and had resigned myself to a lifetime feeling terrible. This all changed on a fateful day in February 2019. I walked into the Atlas Nutrition store and my life has never been the same. I was provided expert guidance and support on my new fitness journey.
After a short time following my plan, I felt better and my health improved. Fast forward a year and I was in the best shape of my life. My confidence and self-discipline were sky high. Seeing what a healthy lifestyle provided for me, I quickly felt a calling to help others. I knew that many others faced similar challenges and I hoped that my transformation could show them that anything is possible. I went from overweight and in pain to competing in physique competitions in less then two years.
I fell in love with this lifestyle and all the positives that come with it. My passions are learning and identifying new ways to benefit my clients.
