The proof is in the pudding
I’m sure you’ve heard that saying before. It’s true. Results are the TRUTH and results are where we excel.
Personally, I hate building web sites and trying to hold referral contests and all the other behind the scenes stuff that goes into a business.
I am a COACH. I train athletes and my goal is to change their lives. I fall asleep thinking about how we can help athletes on an even greater level and wake up thinking about our Underground Strength Gym athletes.
With my web sites comes everyone and their Mom copying our web sites, stealing our logo and pretending to be great at what they do.
There are pretenders and there is the REAL Deal.
If you want the REAL deal then you train with us. Period. End of story.
If we weren’t so busy kicking ass and taking names, helping athletes get powerful results, we’d have more photos for you. Truth be told we’re too busy LIVING the code, in the gym, doing WORK.

– Zach –
Are you “too busy” for training in the summer?
I’ve heard this comment from parents AND athletes since my first days as a Strength & Conditioning Coach.
There are 168 hrs in a week. Most of our athletes train 2 – 3 hrs a week.
Are you REALLY That “Busy”?
When I was in high school, I train ALL year, regardless of the season. Yet I remember MANY athletes were talking about summer workouts, as if they don’t train the other 9-10 months out of the year?
VERY strange…. aka LAZY.
Do you brush your teeth only when you have time or do you make this part of your daily habits?
That is what training is about. It’s something you LIVE. We teach our athletes to Live The Code: Honesty, Integrity, Commitment, Work Ethic
Honesty to others AND yourself.
Integrity – do the right thing, even when no one is watching
Commitment to excellence and becoming the best YOU can be
Work Ethic – Busting your ass to achieve your goals
As you can see, these 4 Codes rage against laziness, excuse making and lies.
Even during the heat wave, we do NOT back down or make excuses. That is what BUILDS champions.
As you can tell through our videos, we are NOT training for aesthetics such as 6 pack abs, bigger biceps or a beach body.
We train for LIFE. We train YOU so you can succeed at ALL that you set out to do.
We don’t just train the muscles, we train the mind, body and spirit.
Adults AND Athletes are trained here.

As Long as you don’t quit, you are IN.

I just stopped by a BIG sports plex in Metuchen, NJ. I was watching one of our kick butt athletes, Amber Rauh, playing Volleyball with her club team. I was fired up seeing her play! When I saw her play I thought to myself, “WOW. I would get KILLED playing against her team!! ha ha” To see her strength, power and MOST of all, her confidence to play the way she was playing, it REALLY made me happy. It let me know we’re helping athletes do what we set out to do.
I saw TONS of girls playing Volleyball, jumping, running, cutting directions…. There were several courts of high school volleyball clubs playing.
I started thinking of a girl who was an AWESOME Basketball & Softball athlete & tore BOTH ACLs her final 2 seasons. I was her Phys. Ed. teacher in elementary and middle school. I watched this girl grow up.
That same girl didn’t want to train with us when she was mid way through high school, she was brain washed into thinking girls who train with weights will look like men.
TRUTH: Sorry, it’s NOT that easy, if it was that easy, all our 120 lb athletes would be 200 lbs of solid muscle but they’re NOT.
Her junior year, this star athlete tore her ACL during Basketball and had to get surgery, missing her junior season of Softball.
Senior year, she tore her OTHER ACL during Basketball, missing her final season of Softball, killing ALL chances to play sports in college and even more, lost ALL her opportunity to get a college scholarship.
I’ll NEVER forget this. It sounds odd, but it’s NOT a rare occurrence for female athletes.
She listened to false information and decided against training, which resulted in her not being physically prepared to the best of her ability.
That’s what we do at The Underground. We help YOU realize your true potential and the BIGGEST way to help you is to strengthen your body and reduce your chances of injury. If you’re hurt, you can’t compete. Period.
Anyway, back to my story while seeing all these girls playing Volleyball…..
Studies show that high school female athletes suffer from over 30,000 ACL tears every year.
Watching all these volleyball clubs playing, I saw ACL tears somewhere in this group, looming…. I looked around and saw nothing buy athletes playing soccer and volleyball. There was NOTHING regarding proper strength & conditioning.
I took a walk to the front desk as I was leaving and asked the guy at the front desk if he has anyone talking to the parents about proper training for their kids, as I saw kids playing soccer as young as 5 in that building. I said, “I’d love to help if you don’t have anyone educating your parents and their kids.”
His first response was NOT what I expected, “Yes, this would be a GREAT complimentary benefit to our athletes and an added value to our parents. I’d love to do this because I CARE about the athletes playing here….”
Well, that wasn’t the response…. Here is his response: “You would have to pay us $1,500 in sponsorship to speak here because people will go and train with you after speaking here…”
I replied, “That’s up to them if they want to train here, but you just told me you don’t have anyone here to help these athletes with proper strength & conditioning, nobody talking to the parents, nobody educating them on how to improve their performance…. You still want money for someone offering to help your athletes and their parents?”
I told him I wouldn’t pay $1,500 to hang a banner when my intentions are to help the athletes. His response, “Not interested…..”
I walked away, sick to my stomach, that this manager or perhaps the owner, was solely focused on $$$$, he was NOT focused at all on caring about these athletes and helping them achieve their true potential. What a shame.
He was too arrogant and felt if these kids and parents are educated they would train with me. Well, that would be great, that IS the goal of mine, in our efforts to help all local athletes. Period. That is what we do. We train athletes. We help them reach their potential.
The difference between us and this close minded manager is this: If I can’t help my athletes in a specific area, I bring in an expert to fill the gap.
These kids deserve better. These kids deserve MORE than just a place to play sports.
As a Coach and as a former competitive athlete who had injuries that sidelined me and killed my chances to reach my full potential…. and as a father, this makes me sick to my stomach that someone didn’t see that this would HELP the athletes and NOT cause him to lose money. Instead, it would have INCREASED the value of his business because he would be showing that he CARED about the athletes.
People like this need to re-think what $1,500 means to them or $15.
Would these kids / parents STOP playing sports in this metuchen sportsplex because I educated them on how to reduce injuries?
NO. I don’t own a sportsplex, we train athletes so we can help them achieve their true potential in sport.
We bring in top nutritionists, mental coaches and other coaches to compliment what we do and give our kids the best we can, especially if we are not covering these critical areas. We don’t say, “Hey, Pay us if you want to speak here!!”
Wanna know what this comes down to?
The Answer: CARING…
If you work with athletes, in ANY capacity, you need to CARE. Period.

Check out this competition amongst our lightweight wrestlers (Under 135 lbs). If you’re an athlete you gotta compete on a regular basis, BUT, note that even during competition our athletes maintain perfect technique.
Our Football players are injured on a regular basis from their Coaches requiring them to “Max Out” every month on movements that young athletes are NOT ready or even beneficial for them to max out on. The majority of these Football Coaches need to get a Clue!! They are hurting young athletes and ruining their chances of success.
Check out our wrestlers getting after it…..
Stay tuned for the next video with some of our middleweight athletes getting after it!
If you’d like to train under experts who KNOW how to deliver powerful results safely, call us for your FREE trial.
Serious Inquiries Only Please. Not all applicants are accepted.

BOTH Ray Jaz and Shawn Orzechowski seem to have been separated at birth. BOTH of these Undergrounders arrived for their workouts wearing 20 lb weight vests and proceeded to go through their entire workout wearing their vests!
Ray Jaz is the freshman 103 lb varsity wrestler for The South Plainfield Wrestling Team. He’s one of our most dedicated athletes and his success as a freshman, varsity wrestler is proof of his efforts!
Shawn Orzechowski is likely the strongest volleyball player in all of NJ. Being the younger brother of one of our longest standing clients, General Chow, he has NO choice!
Below is Shawn’s brother lifting a 260 lb atlas stone during our New Year’s Morning workout!
Over the last week we’ve had 9 new athletes become members of The Underground.
Call today to start your journey towards more wins, more strength, more speed, more stamina and more mental toughness.
