HIGHER GROUND FOUNDER
As an OKC native and Navy SEAL, Zach Morton’s vision of what would become Higher Ground started in 2005 while Zach was on patrols in Iraq. Zach had a conversation with a fellow teammate who shared his love of running. That conversation led to an idea that soon became a diagram on a dry erase board; a blue print. The conversation would continue and serve as a way to dream and pass the time overseas. At the end of the deployment, the two caught a plane back to the states. The dream was put on hold, and life carried on.
Thirteen years of operational experience and time spent as an instructor at Advanced Training Command led Zach to discover his passion for teaching, coaching, and helping others. Zach brought that passion back to Oklahoma City where he could be close to family, live the life he desired and make that dream from 2005 a reality. And thus, Higher Ground Running was born in October of 2016.
Zach has experienced the benefits of a life dedicated to training first hand. Now, he wants to share that higher quality of life with you.
We cater to all fitness levels.
