    I’ve started in person coaching with Zohar, once a week for several months, after which we gradually transitioned into online coaching of form checks + programming. 

    I was a very active and sporty young girl and always knew the importance of exercise, but never liked lifting weights. Zohar was very thorough with making sure I was lifting with good form, and I got the confidence to lift weights without being worried about hurting myself. 

    I was sooo surprised how quickly my body got noticeably stronger. I felt an improved sense of capability in my everyday life, I was less tired in my day to day work, I felt it especially when I used to have long drives at night where I used to be very tired and after only a few weeks of strength training I could drive during the night easily all of a sudden! 

    I also used to have aches and pains in my shoulder and wrist on and off for many years, and I was worried that I would have pain during my training, but on the contrary! We were attentive to these areas when we started out, and without even noticing I realized there are no more aches at all anymore. 

    Thank you Zohar so much for your expert coaching, I highly recommend Zohar to everyone that looks for an expert coach that goes into every little detail, a coach you can really grow with!

    Only after I’ve started training with Zohar and getting to know the Starting Strength method better, I came to really understand the value of strength training and the high levels of technique you need in order to keep getting strong effectively.

    When we first started I didn’t think I would be able to get to these heavy weights and to have that good of a form. I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have, without everything I got from our training.

    I think this is the most effective method out there to get strong, and of course, I couldn’t have made it without Zohar and his coaching and support, both inside and outside of the gym. I highly recommend Zohar to everyone that wants to get stronger and to understand in depth the Starting Strength method!

    I had a 2 hour barbell clinic coaching with Zohar. Hands down the best 2 hour investment of my strength training to date. I am 36 years old and have been strength training on and off for ~12 years. Yet Zohar were able to provide tactical advice to significantly improve my form across the board.

    – Deeper squats with maintained strength and reduced wrist pressure
    – Stronger benchpress with improved leg drive
    – Overall better form to improve ROM and reduce risk of injuries

    Zohar paid close attention to my needs and wrote a detailed follow up across all exercises afterwards. He was extremely responsive with any follow up questions I had, providing answers tied to my workout goals.

    Highly recommended!
