Learn more about Zia's career and our partnership below.
Zia played lots of sports growing up, football, cross country, softball, track, and soccer but her heart was always with basketball. The Cooke family has always emphasized hard work so for Zia it was simple, get in the gym and get better. Zia was never focused on the stress or accolades that came with basketball, but the hard work and fun it brought into her life. It's no suprise that with her humbleness and dedication success followed.

When asked about how she will incorporate Dr. Dish in her training Zia said,
It's going to help me a lot, mainly on my Dad because he won't have to rebound for me ...the technology part of it is super dope, I can definitely do a lot of drills with it, I'm gonna get some good work in with it, I've always used shooting machines but Dr. Dish is more elite than I've ever had"
