At Subject Zero, we want to do more than sell supplements. We want to do more than promote the scientific backing of our formulations, ethical dosages, and transparency in our ingredients and processes, though we love to scream that from the rooftops, too.
Ultimately, we want to foster a synergetic relationship between consumer and product. We want to educate and engage our customers, most of which we've grown to know far beyond their spending habits.
Our goal is to bridge the gap between science and optimal sport performance.
We're continually grateful for the opportunity to help athletes pursue their goals and encourage active people take their health and wellbeing as seriously as we do.
Meet the Coaches
Meet the Ambassadors
I initially came into the strength and conditioning realm with a background in soccer which lasted through college playing in the NJCAA for a team in Madison, Wisc. From there I turned to the weight room to emend my training goals and transitioned into studying human health sciences. During this transition, I felt the need to help people outside of the hospital and give them a fighting chance rather than tending to sick individuals already admitted to the hospital. I converted my educational studies to exercise sports science where I earned my bachelor’s degree and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) certification. I am also a competitive powerlifter with elite totals in three weight classes (165-198) and stay competitive in the 181 weight class with a best 1770 total (top 10 all time 2017). I’m also a member of team EliteFTS since 2016.
I am passionate about his training and bring that intensity to my clients. I have a very technical eye for movement mechanics, particularly when it comes to powerlifting. I currently resides in Highland, Indiana, working out of Illiana Power Asylum where my wife Julia and I run a powerlifting team consisting of 20+ members. I’m eager to share my knowledge and help others reach their strength goals.
Recently, my wife Julia and I have had a shift in goals when it comes to training and nutrition. We both wanted to be better coaches and parents so we gave the reins over to coaches affiliated with this supplement brand who both do nutrition coaching as well. It has been roughly two months and both Julia and I are having our biases shattered, learning new things and enjoying training again on a weekly basis. Much time and research has gone into these products along with the coaching affiliated with this brand. I’m happy to help represent products and brands that align with how we were raised in the industry and Subject Zero Supplements has done that through continued education, community, and good products. Helping to promote this brand is almost a normal thing for us both as we try to educate others by way of cultivating everything Subject Zero has done in the strength community.
My name is Julia and I am a 20+ year veteran in the field of strength sports and sports performance. I was a strength coach at Div 1 University at Buffalo, then moved on to direct a youth sports performance program. I’ve been an online coach since 2012, working with powerlifters, physique athletes, pre/post pregnancy women, and everyday folks looking to live their best life. Early in my career I was a top ranked powerlifter, and also have 7 years of physique competitions under my belt. I’ve been a coach and member of Team Elitefts since 2005.
Representing a supplement company that I actually use and trust is important to me. As a coach, I often get asked about supplement use for performance and recovery. Since we've used Subject Zero, we've had nothing but great success, so it only makes sense to recommend to others what we know works. I'll also be honest in saying that bc I know who/where the product is coming from, I trust it even more. I know the research and work has been put in to create a quality product, not just throw something on the shelves to make a buck. I’m a huge fan of what Subject Zero does for the sport and the people, and what Tony does for the community through education. I love to support good people and educate my clients on the best methods, supplements included.
A little bio about myself: education-wise I have an undergraduate degree in exercise physiology, which is where my love of studying the body, how it moves, and weight training started in my life. From there I went to graduate school and earned my doctorate in chiropractic as well as my master’s in nutrition. During graduate school is also when I started to focus on powerlifting as my goal and training modality. I started a practice with my wife in Maine where I exclusively treat athletes and have built up a really good reputation for myself, with some patients traveling 2+ hours each way to see me for treatments.
Since then, about 2013, I have done more than 20 powerlifting competitions and have started coaching people as a result of that. I have a few females with 1000+ total and a few men with 2000 lb totals under my guidance.
I prioritize educating my patients and athletes in every aspect that I can, I always put out free educational content on my Instagram @thepowerdoc and my goal is to be the go-to resource for anything and everything lifting and rehab related material.
I personally use your products, and I am always very picky when choosing products based on who makes them, what the ingredients are, and quite frankly, how they market them. Subject Zero has a “no pressure” style of marketing that I like, with high quality supplements without any BS in them, and from a highly regarded lifter and educator in the field.
My name is Zach Fant. I’m 29 and from a small town in Arkansas called Hope. I’ve been married for six years to my beautiful wife Ashley, and I graduated college in the field of industrial electricity. Currently, I work for a utility provider in our local town.
I’ve played a number of sports all of my life from football, baseball, basketball, track and field, and even some golf. I started powerlifting around five years ago, achieved an elite total in the 220 lb weight class last year, and now own a private powerlifting gym called Chak Zone Powerlifting.
I believe in helping others and being upfront and honest with each and every one; that is what Subjectzero is. Subject Zero is true and genuine, no BS or hidden interests, and upfront with who you are. This is why I love the products and stand behind the brand so much. I have related values that go hand in hand with the values of Subject Zero and the team around the company.
I want to help as many people as possible. I may not be as smart or even as great of a lifter as many, but I know I can at least help one person. If thousands of hours of work on my part can help one person I truly believe it’s all worth it.
My name is Jenesis Fonder and I’m a 22 year old athlete in Minneapolis, Minn. I’ve been powerlifting since 2012, but within the past four years have dedicated more time, effort and resources into training. I’m a co-founder and co-owner of a small personal training business, a certified Community Health Worker, and am currently working on my master’s degree at the University of Minnesota Duluth in Tribal Administration and Governance.
Representing Subject Zero is important to me because Subject Zero offers products I confidently use and eagerly recommend to clients and friends. Furthermore, the comprehensive educational content provided by the Subject Zero team detailing the use and intent of each ingredient has helped me better supplement the products into my own life and better explain why they might be worthwhile for someone else to try. This content empowers folks to learn more about what their bodies need in order to perform its best. I understand the importance of education rather than just selling an idea or product.
As a Community Health Worker, I work with the Native community near me to help elders with type II diabetes explore the simple tools available to them, such as food and nutritional education. I cannot sell these ideas to them and expect them to stick; I have to take the time to educate so they can make informed and sustainable choices.
My dad first entered powerlifting in the era of eat like shit, look like shit, feel like shit—but lift decently heavy. Since then, we’ve gotten to see the nutrition and supplementation aspect of strength training grow in importance and demand. I believe that Subject Zero embodies the best of these components and I am honored and excited to work with Subject Zero.
I am an International Elite powerlifter, remote powerlifting coach, and personal trainer at Treasure Coast Barbell Club. I have also worked in the supplement industry for the past six years. From working in the supplement industry for as long as I have, I truly value quality formulas and dosing. Which is what attracted me to Subject Zero in the first place. Over the years I have seen a lot of companies push under dosed formulas as the next big thing. When it comes to supplementation, I aim to educate people the best I can on ingredient profiles so they can make the best decision for themselves.
The pursuit of knowledge is one of the best pursuits of all because it's never ending. I am constantly aiming to learn more to share that knowledge with my clients and colleagues. I love supplementing with Subject Zero products and am so grateful to be able to support a brand I truly believe in, especially a brand with the business ethics of Subject Zero . Companies like these are rare to find nowadays in the fitness industry.

My name is Ronald Tarvin. I’m a personal trainer/strength coach and gym owner in Millbrook, Ala., as well as a decent competitive powerlifter for the past six years.
What I find most compelling about Subject Zero is the commitment to formulating science-backed products. I personally dove head first into Restoration; my sleep pattern was atrocious as a new gym owner and a former caffeine junkie. That product works wonders for myself and a few others I’ve recommended it to that have used it. It also tastes fantastic. I also swear by Pursue as an intra on big training days and meet day. Again, a product I really enjoy.
I respect the team behind the company, as Tony has also been a coach of mine. I genuinely enjoy representing the brand and am proud to be part of this team!
