Pattern. Load. Accelerate.

Every Human is An Athlete

We are descendants of the world’s most athletic species. We inherit our strengths from our ancestors who ran, hunted, and climbed to survive life on this planet. From competition climbing to big wave surfing, modern sport relies on our inherited traits to be explosive, agile and coordinated. The Samsara Method is designed to help you reclaim your innate athletic potential – and transform your performance at every level. Train at home or wherever life brings you.

Full-Spectrum Training Method

Take Your Performance to the Next Level

In an age of ultra specialization, we see athletes who can run 2.5 hour marathons but can’t pull up their body weight and athletes who can climb 5.14 but live with chronic back pain. Sport specificity is crushing our performance. 

Training shouldn’t mimic sport – it should mimic the evolutionary blueprint of human athleticism, respecting the biomechanics that underpin performance in every sport. It should reflect our capacity to be both explosive and long-lasting.

The Full Spectrum training approach reflects a comprehensive study of human athleticism, enabling you to develop:

Strength

Maximize Your Force Production

Strength is the engine of our movements. Our scientifically rigorous training method will transform your ability to produce force. The result? Game-changing confidence in your body.

Endurance

Go Farther, Faster

Endurance is the currency of adventure. Our aerobic training method is rooted in the study of human biology and evolution. The result? Our athletes go farther and get there faster, with less energy.

Athleticism

Transform the Way You Move

Athlete IQ is the movement intelligence exemplified by elite performers. Our IQ training reflects the 6 million year athletic journey of the human species. The result? Elasticity, fluidity, and coordination for your every move.

Meet the Coaches

“Performance training is the ultimate adventure, which is why we don’t just coach you—we train with you. We are athletes ourselves. Through tailwinds and headwinds, athletic gains and life setbacks, we are on this journey with you.”

Zahan Billimoria

Founder and Head Coach

Z is a lifelong athlete and student of the human body. His passion for training stems from his connection to the mountains—and desire to go bigger and higher.

When he began training for mountain endurance events in 2005, he hired his own coach. After three dedicated years of work, Z qualified for the U.S. Ski Mountaineering Team, and represented the U.S. at the World Championships in Switzerland.

Z’s experience of training for the World Championships highlighted just how adaptable the body was, how much control humans have over their physiology, and how an understanding of human biology can give an athlete the tools to transform their performance. If the aerobic engine was so responsive to training, what other systems could be trained, and how?

In the 19 years that have followed, Z has pursued the study of human physiology through the lens of modern science, ancient martial arts, and human evolution. It is his constant pursuit of a deeper understanding of the human system that fuels the Samsara Method.

Shannon O'Grady

Ph.D., Nutrition Consultant

Shannon O’Grady is a food-loving nutrition nerd with two ‘spirited’ children, an ever-supporting husband and quite a few animals.  Currently the CPO/COO for Gnarly Nutrition, her job combines her interests in nutrition, sports and education.

Her love for moving her body started with running and evolved into all things endurance, especially if mountains were involved. She discovered jiu jitsu at 38 and became obsessed with how the martial art combined flexibility, strength, whole body movement and strategy. Six and a half years later, she’s a brown belt and still enamored with the sport, which has proven to be simultaneously humbling and empowering.

Jiu Jitsu has now become a family affair with her husband and both of her kids now training, but they also climb, hike and ski together…the ‘together’ part being what’s most important. She has her doctorate in Biology from the University of Utah and came on as a Nutrition Consultant for Samsara in 2022.

Scott Palmer

Athlete and Coach

Scott has worked as a mountain guide in the Tetons for the last 10+ years, finding fulfillment in helping people reach their personal goals and seek growth in the mountains. Taking his own interest in human performance and sharing that with guests led him to pursue coaching with the Samsara Experience.

Climbing and skiing are his primary passions. His interest in training developed out of a desire to continue to advance his climbing performance during the long Teton winter months. This eventually led him to pursue a career in physical therapy and coaching.

Scott will be pursuing a DPT at the University of Tennessee in Chattanooga in Fall 2023. He is most passionate about helping others feel good in their bodies and live fulfilling meaningful lives in wild places. His work as a guide, coach and one day a PT reflects this passion.
