About Our Coaches
Coach Zev was raised near Malibu, California, where he started running in 2010. The high school running experience he had was not all he hoped for, with some less-than-ideal coaching and environment. Post high school Coach Zev ended up connecting with the head coach at UCCS and moved out to Colorado Springs to pursue running in college and study Health and Wellness Promotion and Nutrition as a minor, while competing on cross country and track teams.
His passion for coaching developed throughout the years, dealing with injuries, roadblocks and various other obstacles. It dawned on him that he could help other athletes with their own struggles. Coach Caiyem LOVES coaching and mentoring young athletes and hopes to continue his career as a lifelong running coach.
Coach Zev has been with DCC since spring of 2020. He is a USATF certified Cross Country Coach and in his own time is still training at high level with hopes of one day qualifying for the Olympic Trials Marathon.
