Who is Z Strength?


Rich Zwolinski

I am a Personal Trainer with over 15 years of experience in the weight room working with weight loss clients, competitive powerlifters, sport-specific athletes, and clients that just want to feel better and be more fit. I have held the NASM CPT in addition to the Underground Strength Coach certification, endorsed by NESTA. Along with training, I coached NCAA Division I Women’s Volleyball at several different universities.

I have a post-graduate certificate in Sports Counseling, a Master’s Degree in Computer Science, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics. Prior to becoming a full-time trainer, I taught high school math and computer science in Maryland.

Even before I became a trainer I have been helping health and fitness enthusiasts achieve their goals with programming, training advice, and motivation. My programming has helped novice lifters set state powerlifting records, led clients to reach their goal weight, and others to change from being scrawny to brawny.

In addition to my coaching experience, I was active in sports throughout high school and into college, competing on the track team at York College of Pennsylvania as a javelin thrower and later as a member of the club volleyball team at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC).

I am a  Precision Nutrition Level 1 Nutriton Coach certified through Precision Nutrition and a TRX Certified Trainer. Precision Nutrition is a highly respected certification program developed by Dr. John Berardi. In addition to being a nutrition coach and TRX1907539_503041243182253_2083536443598109690_n Trainer, I am a NY State Certified Health and Family and Consumer Science Teacher. Most of my experience comes from working with weight loss clients.

I hold a Master’s Degree in Health Education, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology.

I found my love for fitness and nutrition in 2007 after deciding to make a change in my life. I wanted to lose weight and feel great, but after a bad experience with a crash diet, I began researching healthy and sustainable ways to lose weight and stay in shape. Since recovering from the metabolic damage, I have implemented a complete training program that uses weight training, high intensity interval cardio, and steady state cardio combined with a proper diet to feed and fuel me throughout the day.
