I can't say how excited I am that Shawn and Brandy's Team BSS Gym is the first United States Strongman Affiliate Gym. When they threw their first sanctioned NAS contest several years back, I went as a representaive to oversee the event. At that time, in all candor, I was pretty burned out on strongman as a whole. It just wasn't fun anymore.
But when I arrived and saw the enthusiasm of the promoters, the staff and competitors I felt a little fire start to burn again. Shawn and Brandy were gracious hosts and avid learners. They wanted to know all about strongman, they wanted to throw a great show and they genuinely gave a shit about their competitors and staff! To this day I credit Shawn and Brandy for getting me re-excited about the sport I love.
Not only do the folks at TEAM BSS train athletes in mulitple disciplines to include Strongman, CrossFit and Body Building, they also compete! Brandy Schumaker is a Natural Pro Bodybuilder and a top level LW Strongwoman. Shawn is also a Natural Bodybuilder and a US Strongman Max Deadlift record holder in the 220 class. And, Brandy's kid sister, Ashley Lawrence? She is the US Strongman LW National Champ!
So, if you want an amazing work-out experience TEAM BSS is for you! If you want to attend a well run, fun contest then a TEAM BSS show needs to be on your list! If you want to be around genuinely awesome people, the Schumaker's have your hook-up!
