Member Monday Shoutout: Braden Schmidt

Braden is a busy dad of 4 children, and has been consistently coming to the gym since he joined in August 2021. Here is what Braden has to say about his experience at FMFA so far!

Why did you decide to join FMFA?

I have 4 kids at home and don’t work full time on the ski patrol anymore so I decided I needed to do something for my self to help get back into shape and say fit. At the same time coach Giff my former explosives route partner started coming to the gym and was loving it and made me want to come in.

Did you have specific goals when joining?

Just to feel healthier and get stronger

What has kept you coming?

The people and the high you get after a workout

What are the biggest things you have noticed since joining us?

Feeling stronger both Physically and mentally 

Do you have any advice for anyone looking to start or even for a current member?

Don’t delay just start. It was scary to start my first class but as soon as it started, felt like a family and was welcomed. Take one challenge and a time and don’t think how hard the next one will be before you finish your current task. 

What is something we don’t know about you that you would be willing to share with us?

I love the tv show M*A*S*H and feel lucky that I  get to do my dream, doing explosive Avalanche Control and Mountain Safety around the globe with the support of my wife and kids
