Darrel Wright Bio
My inspiration for training stemmed from a competitive background in basketball, football, and track & field as a youth. I later gained extensive experience in cross country and track & field while running with the Warner Robins Pacers. Receiving the Outstanding Young Pacer award in 1993 added to my motivation. The motivation led to me becoming a 1994/1995 All Middle Georgia for cross country and 1994/1995 All County All Region track & field for Warner Robins High School. I was also a two time State Qualifier in both sports.
After my tour of service in the United States Army from 1996-1999, I gained interest in boxing. During my boxing career of 70 plus amateur bouts, I was a four time Georgia Golden Gloves Champion 2002, 2004, 2005, 2006. In 2005. I also won the Southern Golden Gloves title along with best fight of the tournament and turned professional 2007.
I also worked with and developed youth. I then became a mentor for Big Brothers & Big Sisters of Columbus Georgia. In 2008 I received the Big Brother of the Year award.
While boxing, I became a Personal Trainer at the YMCA of Columbus Georgia. As my clientele progressively grew, this led to the opening of Wright Way Fitness. My group instruction expanded by hosting fitness boot camps for various companies in Columbus Georgia (Imagination Too Daycare @ Aflac, The Hughston Clinic & Jack Hughston Hospital, Crosspointe Church, and St. Francis Hospital).
This led to the opening of Wright Way Fitness LLC. At Wright Way Fitness LLC, I train various clients of the Columbus Regional Tennis Association located in Columbus, Georgia. As a professional boxing Trainer & Manager, I have trained and managed several televised fights that appeared on Unimas, ESPN, and the undercard of Showtime.
I am now a Lifestyle & Behavioral Coach, Personal Trainer, Sports & Conditioning Specialist, Nutrition & Wellness Consultant, USA Ga Boxing Coach, and certified in Myofascial Compression Technique.
I specialize in weight loss, agility, strength & conditioning, sports specifics (any sport) to include power, speed, coordination, balance, and flexibility. Every workout focuses on strict attention to body posture, alignment, technique and breathe control. At my facility, kids and adults are welcomed. There are rarely any exclusions and there are modifications for every exercise. The training sessions are intense but are at your own pace and allow my clients to achieve success in the area of their desires. I enjoy pushing my clients to the best of their ability but always within reason. As a husband, father, and business owner, I realize that finding time to work out is not always easy but is definitely necessary. My job is to help my clients make a commitment to fitness and give them the education, motivation and accountability needed to promote a healthy lifestyle that will have a positive and life changing effect. My goal is to enhance the wellbeing of my clients by empowering them with the knowledge, skills and guidance needed to assist and inspire them on their journey to a healthier life.
