Zack Marler describes his ADHD as a blessing: Whereas some might be discouraged by the diagnosis, it has fueled him with an unrelenting store of energy and an upbeat attitude that is invaluable in the fitness world. Zack began honing his unending pep at a young age, when his mother had the good sense to encourage the lively youngster to channel his energy toward athletics. Since then, Zack has been involved in martial-arts studios, gymnastics gyms, boot camps, and CrossFit training centers, and he trained for five years in the U.S. Navy.
Today, Zack owns and operates CrossFit Essentials, where he continues to infuse his abundance of energy into high-intensity CrossFit classes every day. He and his staff of certified CrossFit trainers guide students through the strenuous CrossFit workouts while doling out nutritional tips and words of encouragement. His studio also offers CrossFit courses for kids, in which children and teenagers engage in creative workouts that aim to hone their athleticism and their ability to hurl unabridged copies of Great Expectations up to 40 feet away. Throughout the week, the gym brings all its members together with family outings, movie nights, and nutrition challenges.
