Zensah Athletes Looking to Go to Rio Range from Long and High Jumpers to Hurdlers.
Zensah®, the premium athletic apparel brand, announced today that several athletes including Garrett Huyler, Norris Frederick, and Jarret Eaton will represent Zensah® at the 2016 U.S. Olympic Team Trials for Track and Field at historic Hayward Field in Eugene, OR taking place from July 1-10.
What got you started: As funny as it sounds, Baseball is the reason I got started in Track and Field. During baseball tryouts, I had injured my shoulder pitching and could hardly throw a baseball. Rather than tell anyone, I was stubborn and tried to play through it. Needless to say since I couldn’t throw, I got cut and then joined the track team. The rest is history.
My name is Garrett Huyler and I have been coaching/competing in the high jump for 12 years. During this time I have learned one valuable key to success, overtraining is far worse than undertraining. I have taken the saying “train smarter, not harder” to heart the past 2 seasons and that along with using Zensah’s products religiously I have stayed healthier and had better marks as a result. During the 2013 season I had my best finish at a USA Championship Meet finishing in the Top 5 at the Indoor meet in Albuquerque, NM and set a lifetime best of 7’3″ earlier that year. Two weeks ago, in the first weekend of the 2014 season I cleared another lifetime best of 7’4″ and am excited for what the upcoming season holds.
