Tell us a bit (a lot) about your self:
My name is Zac Maynard and I have just finished my third year at university studying a bachelor of exercise and sport science/bachelor of business (sport management). I live in McCrae with my family, dog (Buddy), and cat (Milo). I have played football for Rosebud my entire life and am an avid Dees supporter. I love strength and conditioning and trying to improve my own or someone else’s ability to perform at a high level. I am obsessed with sport and will watch virtually anything that is on Kayo.

Why did you choose to spend 12 weeks with the Virus family?
I had heard about the amazing environment at Virtus and could not think of a better gym to complete my placement at. Learning from the great coaches at Virtus was also a major factor in deciding to complete the internship.

What do you want to be when you grow up?
A bit of a cliche for someone studying exercise and sport science but my career goal is to work in high performance sport.

What motivates you?
I love to have a positive influence on others and help them achieve their goals. I also enjoy finding opportunities to develop myself as a person and professional.

What are your strength as a person and a coach?
I am good at listening to and helping others

What are your biggest stretches as a person and a coach?
Can be quite shy around people I do not know and tend to lack the confidence to correct things that I think need improving.
