Zebbi Sampler

(Group Fitness Coach)

Zebbi Sampler is a true Hendersonville local and was a collegiate athlete in her younger years. Now a current mom of 2 and wife, she holds a big passion for fitness and helping others in their own personal journeys as she progresses towards her own fitness goal. She has been a fitness coach for a little over a year and would like to pass that knowledge and passion on to the Strong Hand community. Zebbi is an advocate for incorporating mindfulness and meditation/breathwork into your normal fitness routine. As an avid hiker and backpacker, you can often catch her on one of the many trails this area has to offer. She also loves to run and is known to convince her friends to join her for a race every now and then! When she is not coaching, Zebbi works in accounting for a local CPA firm and loves traveling and enjoying good food and music with her hubby, 2 boys, and 3 big mutts.
