About Coach JZ


Hi, I’m John Zombro. I began working in the health and fitness industry in 1984. Over the past 39 years I’ve had the absolute pleasure of working with thousands of clients in the quest of optimizing physical function and performance. My career as a physical therapist, wellness educator, and coach has provided me with many opportunities for growth and inspiration.

  • M.S. – Exercise Science/Wellness Education, Arizona State University
  • M.S. – Physical Therapy, Northern Arizona University
  • B.S. – Health and Fitness Promotion, Salisbury University

I have served in a variety of capacities as an educator, consultant, clinician, manager, and owner of a sports training and rehabilitation clinic. My focus is on movement analysis and correction — and optimized training — for athletes of all levels. I’ve taken over 100 continuing education courses to date, covering practically every area in sports and orthopedic physical therapy including functional assessment, athlete management, treatment interventions, and integrative programming. There is a very good chance that if there is a technique or school of thought in physical therapy, biomechanics, exercise physiology, or athletic preparation…I’ve attended that seminar, read that book, and incorporate some of those methods into my own client management system.

  • Board-Certified Specialist in Orthopedic Physical Therapy
  • Certified Manual Therapist
  • Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist
  • Exercise Test Technologist

Throughout my career I have been involved in teaching, training, and presenting in a variety of related fields. This has included teaching health and physical education courses at the college level, conducting employee wellness and ergonomics training, and presenting at professional conferences and in other forums. It has always been extremely gratifying for me to be able to deliver the message of peak performance and empower a group to utilize knowledge.


My greatest passion is helping people to achieve goals in athletics and to solve problems in health and fitness. It’s my sincere belief that every human deserves the opportunity to fully develop his/her athletic potential and to enjoy peak performance over the entire lifespan. It is my mission to continue learning, growing, sharing, and guiding others toward success. I’m a Lifetime Athlete and it’s my honor to help you to be one also.
