All Mountain Athlete S1:E2 Preview


Next episode of All Mountain Athlete in the works with the legend Zach Greg (@zgthedude) of The Extreme Hotel Cabarete (@fitnesscabarete). Two years ago around this time I went to Dominican Republic to ride from the shores of the Caribbean to the base of Pico Duarte then run to the top; the highest point in the West Indies. Zach and The Extreme Hotel provided my support as my base camp.  In a place most folks visit for 4-Star hotels they never leave, these guys are the antithesis.  Zach opened Zendo, an open air gym on the Hotel Extreme property about 8 years ago. With one of the best kiting beaches world wide, an open air training facility with elite coaches, circus school with a 30ft tall trapeze, half pipe with 9ft ramp walls, yoga loft overlooking the surf spot down beach, and don't forget the restaurant--with all food grown on site or up in the jungle at their farm--which you can and should also visit then float the river that flows through the property. 

Zach's training philosophy is way ahead of its time; the underwater hypoxic strength and conditioning we did as seen in photo are trends just now leaking into mainstream. Short clip of Zach showing a rendition of a TRX workout live on blog; link in bio. Full episode to follow.
