About Us

My name is Rachel Balkovec and I am a strength and conditioning coach in professional athletics by trade. I have always been fascinated with the routes that people take to reach peak levels of performance through taking the path less traveled, having a vision that no one else could see and adding an insane work ethic to that vision to get to their end goal. These people seem to be operating in a different level of consciousness than the rest of the population - possibly, in the flow state. Theta waves are the brain waves that are typically associated with the flow state and are usually about 4-7hz. (This is the brain wave pictured on the logo!) I've had an opportunity to meet incredible people all over the world through my professional and personal experiences. Some of these people are shifting the paradigm in the space in which they work. When I have an opportunity to connect with these people for a conversation, I always walk away with practices and thought processes that I can apply to my own life and I hope to do the same for the audience.

A Purpose Beyond Programming Software: Hewitt Tomlin of Teambuildr

ETwelve years ago, two college football players in a dorm room had an idea. Six years after that, I met James Peters & Hewitt Tomlin through using their incredible software, but have remained friends with them because of their work ethic, mission to serve & value based business tactics. Now they are tackling bigger issues than just strength training programming software by using their platform as a business to help the strength and conditioning community - WAY beyond an app for programs.

No Participation Trophies: Zach Even Esh

First generation immigrant, the son of military parents, the grandson of holocaust escapees and a lifelong iron enthusiast, Zach Even Esh is one of the most passionate coaches I know. I am always curious to know where undying obsession and relentless pursuit of a goal comes from. No doubt, Zach was greatly influenced by his upbringing and lineage and it shows up in his coaching and mentality every day at Underground Strength Gym.

Vulnerability is the name of the game.
