Faces of Fitness: The Trainers

Zac and Kami Price first started training clients in the garage of Zac’s dad (artist Gary Price). As their reputation and business grew, the duo opened Energy Explosion in Spanish Fork. Their clientele now ranges from elite athletes to a wheechair-bound woman who strengthens her arms -— and also a mix of teenagers, middle-aged adults and senior citizens who participate in burpee contests and lift weights in the modern facility. 

Every person who comes to the gym works with a trainer either individually or in small groups. Energy Explosion’s reputation has led the Prices to a partnership with IdealShape, a local nutrition company where Zac and Kami are helping 10,000 who are currently doing an online weight loss and fitness challenge. 

“We are practical about nutrition and fitness,” Zac says. “We have pizza every Friday night with our boys. We eat healthy but really normal, and we love helping others make changes in their lifestyles.”
