Zac Breedlove (BA, ART, CSCS, SFMA) has been in the health and wellness industry for nearly 10 years. He has dedicated himself to improving the quality of standards in the rehab and fitness industries by keeping up to date on contemporary techniques and training modalities.
Zac attended MidAmerica Nazarene University in Olathe, KS where he excelled in his collegiate soccer career. He graduated in 2007 with a Bachelor of Arts in Sports Management and an emphasis in Fitness and Wellness. His career in the industry began immediately after college. He became a Personal Trainer at Next Level Sports Performance in Lawrence, KS in 2007. In 2010, Zac completed the Massage Therapy Program from Pinnacle Career Institute in Lawrence, KS. Soon after he received his credentials in Active Release Techniques from Dr. Michael Leahy.
From 2011-2014, Zac relocated to Charlotte, NC where he began his career at Performance Therapy as an ART Practitioner. After a short stint in Boston, Massachusetts for the past 2 years, Zac is happy to be back with the Performance Therapy team once again.
"Ten years ago, I began at Performance Therapy a former Division I college tennis player with residual injuries causing neck, shoulder and foot problems. Fast forward to now, and you have an entirely different person. I am migraine-free. I am injury-free. In 2011 alone, I have completed three marathons, a 50-miler, two 100-milers, a 100k, five Ironman events (three in three consecutive weeks), three 70.3s, and an Ultraman (6.2-mile swim, 262-mile bike, 52.4-mile run) plus qualified for the Ironman World Championships in Kona-all on a foot with a screw in it. Honestly, I owe all of it to Performance Therapy. It is nothing short of incredible that I have been able to undertake this sort of schedule with no glitches, no injuries whatsoever. Fred Ossmann has kept me strong and flexible (for me!), and Mike puts "Humpty Dumpty" back together again after all of the training and racing. Office Manager Katie has a full-time job keeping up with my crazy schedule and following up with my travel to races. They are part of my family."
