Jon Christian founded Zerkers in 2010 after his daughter asked a profound question: “Do you love what you do, Dad?” He didn’t, and vowing to lead by example for his children, he decided he needed to make a change.
That led him to pursue pushing and challenging mental and physical limits through adventure challenges such as Skydiving, Mountain Climbing, Zip Lining, Surfing, Auto Racing, Endurance Races, Backpacking, Ice Climbing, Hiking, Volcano Exploring, Ocean Kayaking, Outdoor Fitness, Humanitarian Projects, Study Abroad, Mission Trips, Volunteer Events, Whitewater Rafting, Sailing and Diving. These pursuits lead him to move to Costa Rica for three months and backpacking three-quarters of the coast, where he spent significant time working on overcoming fear and limiting beliefs.
After returning to the states Jon began coaching and facilitating evolved educational concepts through adventure challenge experiences while being mentored by world leading transformation coaches, celebrities, and industry game changers.
In 2013 Jon partnered with Arron Brown an Award-Winning professor for Metro State University to co-create a study abroad humanitarian engineering adventure challenge course for students and went on to create several adventure challenge coaching and learning development experiences including local and international experiences, traveling extensively through Costa Rica, Latin America and nationally.
Now a certified professional coach, facilitator, and learning consultant, Jon leverages unique coaching methodology based on 30 years of research and personal experiences to provide clients with unconventional coaching and learning development programs. Jon’s clients have included fortune 500 companies, entrepreneurs, coaches, navy seals, college students, and individuals looking to play a bigger game in their world.

“We covered a lot of ground during our session and I was surprised and very happy with our coaching session. As far as the value of our time together, it was an 8-9… It’s hard to get a 10 out of someone like me. I really enjoyed our session and gained valuable insight and appreciated your openness and willingness to share. Here is a quote that is written on the wall inside the SEAL training compound where students PT it’s one of my favorites “The only easy day was yesterday”. I look forward to our next session.”

Praise for Zerkers Coaching and Retreats
We were hard at work on amazing things to come for our students and graduates. Mastermind group work, time in nature to access our creative spirit, community, engaging higher consciousness, changing the world! This is what it means to be part of the iPEC family… can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings!
The Team Retreat was a week of laughter, togetherness, learning, and discovery. Each of us came to Vermont with a personal goal and soon realized that those goals, while important, were nothing compared to the beautiful unified goal and vision that would emerge.
We might each describe our experiences in different ways, but those descriptions would have a common element: oneness.
We all breathed separately but it felt like one breath.
We started with separate teams for different tasks and ended with one team for everything.
We each shared our individual stories, which in the end, all blended into one story.
And perhaps most enjoyable of all, was that we each arrived at different times and in different vehicles, and soon confirmed what we all knew, that

A great first session with my Coach Jon Christian. Has anybody else noticed how everyone in this organization are wonderful models for how a coach should be?
Thank you, Jon! I’ve come to learn that the connections you make always lead to something great.
I want to thank you for our call last week. I managed to take some action to improve on the relationship side. I created a profile on a dating site and chat with around 20 people this week, I will meet one of them next week and really look forward to it. I would never have started this without you.
Thanks a lot,
I appreciate your intuition, direction, advice, and actions taken to help me on my path. Couldn’t do it without you!!!
Thank you again for everything!!
