‘A story to share’
Zach Detwiler has been a member of York’s Jewish Community Center since he was a year old. His father, David, helped install the heating and plumbing on the original building.
Zach grew up a mile from the site, moved to California, then came home in 2011 to translate a passion for fitness into work at the same place where he learned art and swimming as a kid.
Today, he’s the JCC’s Fitness Center Manager, overseeing 20-plus trainers and a wide range of programs.
“There’s no lack of gyms in this area, but when people come in here, they have a story to share,” Zach says, “and for me, it’s always about that relationship.”
Like the one he had with a local father of four, a Marine who had spent nearly a year with Zach to work on his physical fitness.
So when he heard about Dellas Edmisten’s injury, Zach understood just how big of a setback it was. But Zach also knew his client; he knew how he’d respond.
“When you’re done with your initial rehab,” he told Dellas, “come see me.”
