Zachary Smith is a Hampton Roads native, born in Norfolk and raised in Virginia Beach. Throughout high school and college he was a dedicated athlete-- participating in football, wrestling, track and rugby-- which led him to become a personal trainer at Flex Gym by the age of 18. Under the tutelage of legendary trainer and gym owner Al Walke, Zach developed his personal training career and became co-owner of Flex Gym by the time he was 28. Just recently he partnered with his cousin and professional GLORY fighter, Brian Collette, to open OSU Muay Thai Kickboxing Gym. Zach is also an active competitor in powerlifting, boxing and kickboxing/muay thai. Although getting punched in the face is more in his comfort zone, he has enjoyed learning Latin dance and is happy to support a great organization!
