Zachary Chitwood
Zachary Chitwood grew up in Springfield, Missouri. He was raised as an athlete since the age of 4. Zachary started a lawn care business at the age of 13 to fund his college and sport habits. Athletics was always his passion. By the age of 17 he went to state in Track for sprinting and got a basketball scholarship to Lindenwood University in St. Charles, MO. He then went to college at Missouri State taking classes in drama, theater, and business. During college he also became certified through ISSA in personal training and performance nutrition. Zachary then wanted to take his competitive spirit to the next level so he moved out to Los Angeles.
Zachary landed some agents in LA quickly but getting some jobs was tough. He said, “I thought everything would go faster till I realized how long this is going to really take.” Zachary did manage to land Eminems Hit video “My Band” as a Stand in, body double, and featured after being in LA only 4 months. He says “Getting good jobs just keeps you motivated to keep pushing and keep working hard.” Zachary has been working hard after 5 long years. He has managed to land national commercials, infomercials, print ads, 3 feature films, and become SAG/AFTRA. If you look around you might see him in the magazines, workout videos, or all over the web. Zachary says “I’m away from my family for a reason. If I just stay focused and do what I’m supposed to do they probably won't have to work as hard as I did.”
