About ADC

The Athletic Development Company (ADC) was founded in 2004. Our mission is to create sports champions through rapid and continuous improvement of athletic performance.

ADC’s founder, Rich Zawack, is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist with over 15 years of experience working with athletes at the high school, collegiate, and professional levels. Zawack has studied Russian and Eastern European training systems and has combined these with traditional western periodization to produce a unique training system capable of producing dramatic results in a short period of time.

Zawack’s experience with whole body vibration training has revealed that superior results can be achieved when used in conjunction with his sport-specific training protocols.


ADC developed ZIPS in 2011 to provide convenient access to ADC’s advanced training protocols. ZIPS allows every athlete and every sport on campus to take advantage of the weight room facilities and have access to individualized world class training protocols. ZIPS delivers a very advanced, yet simple to use, training program that allows the coach to focus on safety and proper technique.
