Originally from California, Zane has made Nashville his home with his wife and four children. Since becoming an ACE Certified Personal Trainer in 1998, he has enjoyed helping people make the changes they need for a healthier life and reducing the intimidation factor associated with exercise. He developed a particular interest in weight loss while working with two inspirational clients. The first was the Worsham family, a middle Tennessee mother and father who had contacted Dr. Phil for help with their overweight six year old daughter and, in the course of a year, lost 40lbs, 125lbs and 12lbs, respectively. The second, a reality show contestant who lost 200lbs, also in a year's time. These experiences, and a frustration with the conflicting messages in the media about weight loss and the causes of obesity, created a desire to help people gain a better understanding of fat loss and how their bodies work. He is also personally inspired to set the example for his kids that an investment in fitness and overall health reaps a lifetime of positive returns.
