John Zvonek‘s passion for exercise started when he was very young. As a child, he participated in football, baseball, and karate. When he was in high school, he tried out for the wrestling Team where he was a 4-year varsity-letter winner. He was all conference his senior year and won many all-academic awards for maintaining honor roll or high honors while on varsity.
After high school, he stopped exercising, but kept eating. At 250lbs. and a 42 in. waist (as a wrestler, he had been as low as 119lbs. @ 4% body fat), he decided to change his life. “I was getting tired just walking up a flight of stairs and knew this had to change.” He lost 80lbs. and was able to fit into his high school size-32 pants again.
His recent personal achievements include:
- Ironman Louisville Finisher
- 4X Tough Mudder Finisher
- 1ST Place Westfield River Canoe Race
- 1ST Quinnipiac River Canoe Race
