Four Barrel East
Zack Schell – GM / Head Coach
USAW L2, CF L2, CF Mobility
Zack is the General Manager and Head Coach at Four Barrel CrossFit East. He found CrossFit in Fall of 2012 when he moved to Albuquerque, NM to get his Masters in Trumpet Performance. After moving 1400 miles away from Louisville he found CrossFit ABQ as something to keep him occupied while not at school. While in Albuquerque Zack got his CrossFit L-1, and his CrossFit Movement and Mobility Course. Upon graduating he moved back to Louisville where he found Four Barrel CrossFit – the ownership, programming, and community were an exact match to CrossFit ABQ and he instantly knew it was a perfect fit.
Zack on why he loves to coach: “It gives me the opportunity to better someone’s day, and potentially their life. Many people, myself included when I first started CrossFit, walk through the door with reservations about how they will fit in, and some degree of disbelief in their abilities. As a coach we get the opportunity to shift that way of thinking for them. We get to celebrate with them when they are at their happiest hitting a new PR but we also get to be there to encourage them when they are experiencing self doubt because a lift or workout didn’t go as they planned. They come through the door putting their full trust in us as coaches and there is something truly heartwarming knowing someone trusts you that much. When it is all said and done if one person comes up to me and tells me I helped change their life then it will have all been worth it.”
