Kristina has been a part of the OVERLOAD Team since November 2006. Her educational background is in the biological sciences, which gave her a wonderful background in anatomy and the scientific process. This led to a natural pairing with OVERLOAD Fitness. Once she got introduced to Joshua Trentine, the owner, she jumped in head first into her first real workouts. This scientific approach was way different from anything she had experienced during high school and collegiate sports. After several years training in this manner she became a trainer to expand her knowledge of the subject and actively participate in giving people the tools and strength they need to enjoy life.
When she’s not working at OVERLOAD, Kristina enjoys 4-wheeling and camping, playing with her dogs and spending time with her family. Kristina has some long-term goals to travel and see as much of the world as she can. Something interesting about her you may not know is that she enjoys cooking and trying new and different taste sensations.

Zach grew up in Chardon Ohio. In 2015 he graduated from John Carroll University with an undergraduate degree in exercise science.
While attending JCU, he played football for the university for two years before suffering an injury and having to hang up the cleats for good. His interest in fitness led him to pursue a path that would help others change their lives for the better.
As a corollary to his interest in fitness, Zach grew an interest in physical therapy as a result of having to personally go through it with injuries of his own. It was the clinical nature of physical therapy which led him to search for an exercise protocol that conducted itself in a clinical nature. It was during that search that he chanced upon the Overload protocol.
Zach is extremely happy to get a chance to join the team and hopes to continue to grow in his knowledge and understanding of proper health and fitness.
In his spare time he enjoys all Cleveland sports, is a movie fanatic, loves animals, and loves spending time with friends and family. In addition, Zach is an active bowling competitor.
