Experience:15 Years


Boxing, Kickboxing Trainer


Hello, my name is Zac Steel and I started my Journey through the fitness industry the beginning of 2007 just shortly after graduating Quince Orchard high school in 2006. I spent a lifetime involved in team sports and martial arts which naturally provided a love for Fitness and Wellness. I suffered a traumatic knee injury my junior year while playing football​ and after recovering to play my senior year I decided I wanted​ to help others the way my team of therapists and trainers helped me. Helping others has proven to be the most rewarding job in the world and I’m happy every chance I get communicate my methodologies, knowledge and experience to those in need and make a difference and their life.

I started training in Tong Soo Do early in my childhood at 6 or 7 years old and once became a black belt I ventured into boxing and Muay Thai as my crafts of choice. I wrestled in high school and started dancing capoeira recently for fun but boxing is by far my favorite art as a sport but Muay Thai/ Muay Boran is the my favorite for self defense. Have not had much competition experience but I’ve trained with world-class Fighters as their sparring partner and preparation for their upcoming fights.
