I am one of the older participants at Crystal’s training facility at 66.  I tracked Crystal down after I suffered a serious medical event and needed both rehab and general fitness and strength training.  I interviewed a number of Crystal’s competitors and selected her because of her focus on rehabilitation following an injury and the environment at her facility.  She did a great job assessing the state of my physical condition, talked with one of my doctors and laid out a customized plan to move me forward.  She was focused on what my goals were and motivated me to constantly be focused on moving forward.  She, Max, Jenny, and Brian make very hard work fun, at least most of the time, and monitor how your body is doing during the workout.  While most of the athletes at Wright are younger than me, the pleasant surprise is both the trainers and Continue Reading

I have been training regularly at Wright gym for 2/12 years since I moved to Jackson.  I just spent a few days in NYC with some people I had not seen in a while and they called me “Benjamin Button” as they swore I looked younger than when I left!  If so, that is mainly due to Wright training, that has enabled me to ski, bike, hike and climb with much greater strength and quicker recovery. Happy to speak with anyone about the benefits of a regular workout commitment to Wright Training.

I used to be the last one up the hill, usually hiding intense fear or exhaustion behind my fancy shades or goggles. Then I joined Wright Training where I have been pushed to my limits within a fun and highly supportive community. The payoff is an endless adventure in the Tetons and beyond with a body designed to handle the demands required. Wright Training is the spinach for this 44-year old female Popeye.

I’ve had ACL surgery on one knee and have spiral fractured my fibula on my other leg.  Crystal knew the first day I walked into her gym that I had been injured and needed to work on strength training to overcome these injures and become a better athlete.   I feel so much stronger and confident backcountry skiing and mountain biking and know that through my training at Wright Training I will continue to improve even more.

Crystal and I go way back and a few years ago she noticed that my skiing was starting to deteriorate. She believed it was due to my lack of strength. I had a string of accidents which weakened me to the point where I couldn’t enjoy skiing like I was used to.  My form went away and because I was weak I would get hurt which continued the cycle spiraling down, weaker and weaker. 2 & 1/2 years ago Crystal inspired me to join her fitness program to combat what I was experiencing.  I’ve been working out twice a week and have noticed a huge difference in the way I feel in everyday life but also, and more importantly, I haven’t been injured since and my competitive nature has been invigorated.  I can ski race with, and keep up with, my buddies while being confident that my body is going to hold up Continue Reading


Growing up I was always involved in athletics. Wrestling & swimming were my sports of choice in high school. Later on in my 20’s and 30’s I white water kayaked, hiked, and skied for activities. I did spend some time in the gym, but never really looked at my training as a way to optimize my abilities in these activities. In my late 30’s I developed some chronic pain issues that kept me from wanting to be active, which in turn increased the amount of time I spent on the couch. At approximately the age of 43 I was told by two separate doctors that I needed to start getting better exercise. One of those instances was by a doctor at the local health fair. He did not know me and only watched me approach him from about 50’ away. When I sat down he almost immediately said that I Continue Reading

I have been alpine skiing since 1964 and tele-skiing since 2004.  Skiing is a significant part of my life.  I have historically struggled with weight and strength issues, which has affected my level of skiing as I have grown older.  My story with Wright Training begins with spine surgery (laminectomy) in April 2017.  I had physical therapy with Excel Physical Therapy at the Wright Training facility.  During this time, I was also doing therapy for knee surgery (ACL replacement) I had done in 2011 that had never fully recovered.  During physical therapy I observed people training with Wright Training coaches.  I inquired about the programs offered (I had never participated in physical training before), discussing with my physical therapist and Coach Crystal. Physical therapy had brought some strength back after spine surgery, however, I decided to do “more” for the upcoming ski season.  I signed up for the 3-month Ski Continue Reading

I started strength training to help my back.  But I have found it is really helping my mountain biking.  Despite the fact I have not been riding much so far this summer, I felt really strong during the recent Cache Creek Mt. bike race.  I didn’t win, but kept up and close to some of the fast guys I ride with.  Wright Training has made a big difference in how I feel in all my other activities.

I live in a tiny town in the sticks of south-central Colorado. It’s a magical place with a bunch of outdoors and not a bunch of people. The downside is that there is no Wright Training facility here, in fact no gym at all.  Having moved here from Jackson and having been on a pretty steady diet of Wright Training for five years, I felt the absence of both the ski and bike/run fitness. The best part? I could do both from the San Luis Valley! Crystal set me up with the remote program for both series and I went into ski and bike seasons feeling strong.  Crystal worked with the equipment I have on hand to tailor the ski and bike fitness programs, sent the workouts weekly and checked in on my progress.  I’m thrilled to be able to stick with the pre-season training plans and get set up Continue Reading
