Some of you have seen the spectacle. Some of you have not yet had the privilege.
There are days that loud grunting, yelling and even screaming can be heard coming from within TCS....often times accompanied by the distinct metallic "clink" of two kettlebells banging into one another with hypnotic rhythm.
These are the days that you KNOW Coach and competitor Randal Setzler is hard at work doing what is necessary to get back to the pinnacle of his sport to once again prove that he is one of the very best in the world.
Randal doesn't have the luxury of a coach to guide him through the journey.....he is his own coach. He also doesn't have the convenience of training with others aiming for the same goal....he trains solo. Be that as it may, he trains. Hard.
Knowing Randal in the capacity that I do, I am certain that making World's is not a possibility, but rather a MUST. He is doing all of the things required to make that trip happen....Regardless of the fact that he must do it alone.
....Or does he?
Most of us can't train with Randal in any sort of effectiveness - the shit he does is terrifying. Most of use have no idea how to "coach" him through the workouts he performs. But what we can do is offer our financial support.
Although Randal is in fact a member of the US Kettlebell Team, the sport does not offer the same "perks" that many top-tier sports do. In fact, Randal is solely responsible for all financial obligations that go along with representing the USA at a international level. That even includes purchasing the actual Team USA uniforms!!! Crazy, right?!!!
But regardless of the challenges, Randal is ALL IN, and this offers us the chance to provide support.
It's easy. Randal's clients have set up several ways to show your support:
1. Buy a shirt.
Follow THIS LINK to pre-order your "Kettlebell Gas Mask" shirt. All proceeds will go to Randal and his efforts.
2. Make a donation.
Follow THIS LINK to make a donation to Randal's GoFundMe page. Again, all proceeds go towards Randal's efforts to make it to National's then World's.
In either case, I hope that you see that this is something special and I hope that you are part of it.
