Helping others overcome their obstacles to achieve their athletic goals.

We help others achieve their goals and dreams that seem unattainable or impossible. New moms, 40 hour jobs, kids who have their own sports to be at, physical and mental handicaps, and non-supportive friends and family can all be challenges that hold us back. Tri Training will help you overcome the obstacles you deal with on a daily basis and conquer those athletic ambitions you are striving for.

10 Ironman Triathlons and 9 half Ironmans

Angela Smith achieved Ironman’s “All World Athlete” status in 2014 and 2016 for being in the top 5% of her age group that year. These events have taught her the importance of nutrition and how to take care of her body in an effort to mitigate injuries.

Angela Smith, All World Athlete, Ironman & Triathlon competitor

Angie grew up in Southeast Oregon participating in swimming and softball as a youth. Later she started cycling, hiking and running as a form of exercise through college. Her mission was to help others and she used her Counseling degree to accomplish this until the birth of her second child. In a quest to regain her physical fitness, she attended group strength training classes and competed in triathlons.

Her love for exercise grew stronger as she used it as her outlet for personal quality time, keeping herself grounded so she could truly be the wife and mother she wanted to be. This led her down the path of health and fitness as a career. She became a fitness instructor and personal trainer. Her passion for coaching and helping people achieve their fitness goals has grown stronger as she has seen firsthand what achieving her own desires has done for herself mentally, physically, and spiritually.

Over fourteen years of continuous training Angie has competed in numerous sprint and Olympic distance triathlons along with a many half marathon and shorter distance races which have been used to increase her endurance level, enabling her to participate in nine marathons, nine half distance Ironman and 10 full Ironman triathlons along with a Leadman 250k triathlon and the Seattle to Portland double century bicycle ride. She achieved Ironman’s “All World Athlete” status in 2014 and 2016 for being in the top 5% of her age group that year.

These events have taught her the importance of nutrition and how to take care of her body in an effort to mitigate injuries. She is now using her experience to help others achieve their personal fitness milestones. Angie is a certified personal trainer working for SamFit and has spent countless hours training the “weekend warrior” and endurance athlete. She has also taught Better Bones and Balance for over 10 years, helping others with fall prevention and maintaining strong bones.

The Six Things That Happen When You Meet Me

Create a Path

The first step is building a clear path to success. After a detailed intake and interview we will create a fool proof path for you to meet and achieve your goals.

Learning on the go

I am a working mom with two kids. I know that family is the most important thing and I will show you how you can have a life and training balance.

Do you even lift Bro?

There is more to endurance than just cardio. I can teach you what stretches and exercises you need and what to avoid.

Munchies for the Miles

The biggest mistake most triathlons athlete make is not getting their nutrition right. Let talk about food mmm....

Fixing the mindset

Open water swimming, fast downhills on your bike, crowed bull pin starts, these are all things that can be scary. We want your triathlon to be a fun and positive experience.

Gear Head

If you are confused about what gear you need, let me tell you what is a must and what is a bust. After 10 Ironman I have tried them all.

What Tri-Training's Clients are Saying

Brittany Winfrey review of Tri-Training

Angela is an amazing coach. She has helped me improve on both the swim and bike tremendously. She was with me every step of the way when I trained for my 100-mile bike ride, offering me tons of support and advice to make it a fun experience. She has helped my swim times improve. I struggle with getting to the pool but Angela helps keep me motivated and always has a workout that is challenging but doable so I get the most out of every swim session. My favorite thing about Angela is she is super motivating both as a coach and as an athlete herself.

Misty Samard review of Tri-Training

I have to tell you that I absolutely LOVE ANGIE! I have been with her for 2 years and I keep paying her because she pushes me to do what I wouldn't do on my own. I have never in my entire life been as physically fit and strong as I am now. She has pushed me out of my comfort zone and made me realize that I can do so much more than I ever thought I could. I used to exercise NEVER and now I hate missing a day. I work out 5-6 times a week and actually go to the gym to do it. Never thought that would be my happy reality and I can literally thank Angie for that. Couldn't ask for a better trainer or friend. She's the best and SamFit is lucky to have her!

Ashlee Pickerell review of Tri-Training

Angie was my rock while I trained for my first half-marathon. Not only did she encourage to me sign up for the race (I have never been a runner), but was with me every step of the way. Angie aided me throughout my journey via writing me workouts, enduring strenuous workouts with me, and also by giving me the adequate tools for recovery. Angie has allowed me to see what my true potential is. When I thought I could never do it, she showed me that I could. Through her encouragement and constant support, I was able to mark a half-marathon off of my bucket list.

Teresa Warren review of Tri-Training

Angela not only has the knowledge but she has the experience to know what it takes to achieve your training goals. She is encouraging and truly cares about her clients and wants them to succeed. As a busy working mom herself she knows how to make realistic training schedules. Angela make me believe in myself and has helped me accomplish my dream of becoming a triathlete.

Teresa Warren

Angela has helped me in many areas of swimming. I was struggling with my technique as well as breathing during swim training for my first sprint triathlon. She helped me be more efficient in the water and my breathing became second nature. A few summers later Angela helped me conquer my fear of open water swimming. After I had a huge anxiety attack in the lake Angela was by my side talking me thru my fear. Within a half hour, I was eagerly swimming across the lake with Angela by my side. I would highly recommend Angela Smith with all areas of training.

Michelle Klein review of Tri-Training

I was so impressed, not that I ever doubted her ability but when you work 1:1 with someone you really get to understand their teaching and communicating skills. She is very knowledgeable. She goes above and beyond to show me how to have correct form to make sure I do not injure myself. I really feel like she LOVES her job and it shines thru when she is in trainer mode with me. Even though we are friends she is also my trainer and acts like one when I am at my appt with her.

Patty Gourley review of Tri-Training

I love working out with Angie. She is so positive and supportive! She always makes me feel like I am the most important client she has. Her workouts are always just what I need. She pushes me to the limit, but is always sensitive to how far I can go.

Abby Kennedy review of Tri-Training

Angie is amazing. I’ve worked with lots of personal trainers in the past and she is the best. Two of the things I particularly appreciate are her energy and her work ethic. Somehow, she never seems tired or bored. A+ from my perspective.

Abby Kennedy

After completing in six triathlons, I wanted to take my performance to the next level, so I started training with Angela. She showed how to fuel, how to recover, and train for rides. With her training and encouragement, I set a personal record on a century ride. As an older competitor, she coached me about recovery and hydration. It was a game changer for my training. Based on my results, I recommend her to anyone who wants to compete at a higher level. It is about after-race bragging rights between competing friends!
