MEET THE COACHES

Zechariah Griffey, Owner/Trainer

I have always had an athletic background playing every sport I could growing up. That continued into high school as a stand-out, three sport athlete. I really began to dive head first into the fitness and conditioning component once I got to college.

I am a graduate of the Buffalo State Health and Wellness program with a concentration in adult fitness and a minor in coaching. Before graduating, I obtained a certified personal trainer credential from the American College of Sports Medicine. Soon after I began working at TREO, I sought out more continuing education.

In 2012 I received a certification from USA weightlifting as a level 1 Olympic lifting coach. The following year I pursued Z-Health Essentials of Elite Performance Certification. In addition to that, I have followed the program outlined by the International Youth Conditioning Association.

Beyond that I am excited to constantly be striving to learn more and read more to make myself a better coach for everyone I work with.

Katie Eschner, Trainer

Since a young age, I've always been involved in sports, first starting with gymnastics and then focusing on volleyball all year round.  My passion for volleyball earned me a Division II scholarship to Roberts Wesleyan College in Rochester, NY.  I was majoring in Business Administration at the time and always found myself coming back to fitness and athletics, so I transferred to Slippery Rock University, Slippery Rock, PA to pursue a major in Exercise Science.  I received my Bachelors degree in Exercise Science in May of 2015.

When I was younger, I was an athlete that trained at TREO, in January of 2015 I interned at TREO, and soon after graduating, I began working here in June of 2015. I've always loved the experience and training I had here being an athlete, and now being able to teach/coach here is just as awesome!

I currently hold my Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) through American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), Certified Group Fitness Instructor through Aerobics & Fitness Association of America (AFAA), along with completing the Essentials of the Z-Health course.  If I'm not training at TREO or playing in volleyball leagues/tournaments, I enjoy being able to spend time with my family and our pets, and traveling.

Shannon Superczynski, Trainer

To say that I have a passion for athletics is an understatement. I participated in cross country and softball while in college. Upon graduating, I continued sharing my knowledge and skills as a collegiate softball coach for four years.

I am currently the assistant facility director at the Buffalo Niagara Court Center. Besides managing the day to day operations of the facility, I also run the Volleytots program.

I love working with kids and motivating people at any age to perform to their highest potential. Having the opportunity to better the lives of individuals through coaching, teaching, and training is very rewarding.  I graduated with my Masters in Sport Administration from Canisius College in 2009 and earned my personal training certification through NFPT.

Outside of work you can find me on the ball diamond, hiking, trying new foods, or traveling. I live for adventure and love trying new things!  I am happy to be a part of the TREO family and I look forward to challenging you!
