Coach Zack

Zack Saunders

Zack was born in Vienna, Virginia and grew up in Spokane, Washington. He graduated from massage therapy school and then pursued massage therapy for 2 years while coaching at CrossFit Spokane and CrossFit Liberty Lake. He was blessed with a great opportunity to take over CrossFit Spokane Valley in May of 2018. It had always been a dream of his to own a gym. When he’s not at the gym he enjoys being outside in the mountains and hanging out with great friends. In the summer you will find him at Priest Lake, and in the winters he enjoys going to the slopes to attempt to snowboard. Most of all he loves spending time with his family and his amazing girlfriend Savanna.

Zack started coaching in 2013. He was at the gym all of the time, and he naturally gravitated towards wanting to help other members. Mike Gerry at CrossFit Spokane asked if he wanted to start coaching, and he jumped at the opportunity.

Favorite WOD: Karen…150 wall balls for time! Of course he does it unbroken!

Sports Background: Zack ran cross country and track and played basketball all four years of high School. Cross-country help him the most in life teaching him about mental toughness and to keep going even when your body says to quit. He competed with a team at the CrossFit Regionals in 2012 and 2014 and as an individual in 2013. He loves competition because it always shows where your weaknesses are and forces you to work on them.
