Q: Tell us about yourself.
A: My name is Zach Smith and I am a Real Estate Agent in Victor with BHHS Brokers of Jackson Hole Real Estate.
Q: What brought you to Wright Training?
A: I was a competitive Nordic skiing racer in high school in Jackson, WY and have been doing the 50k Rendezvous Ski Race over the last 3 years. I wanted to improve my time by one hour from my last year time and realized dropping weight and increasing my strength would be the only way to do this.
Q: What do you compete in and how has that impacted your life?
A: I only do the one 50k ski race per year but hope to get back into doing more races throughout the year as a check in to make sure I can keep up with my kids for as long as possible.
Q: During your training, what is your main focus?
A: Strength and dropping weight.
Q: How has training at Wright Training helped you compete?
A: I bettered my 50k time from 4:30 to 3:30 in one year. Pretty good considering that anyone that I told that I wanted to better my time by an hour laughed at me… Including myself.
Q: What advice would you offer to future athletes trying to get involved?
A: Just sign up and give yourself 2-3 months of work. The team atmosphere and everyone’s positive attitude is contagious.
Q: Any final thoughts or shoutouts?
A: I am really happy that Wright Training opened in Victor. It is definitely something that the community was hungry for. Shoutout to the 6am class for being my moral support as I worked on my goal!
