Competed in Virginia This Weekend!

Posted 06 Aug 2011 in Media

Saturday the Edge Crew and I were in Fisherville, Virginia competing in the “Blue Ridge Mountain-Mountaineer Strongman” Competition put on by NAS & Mary Jacobson…this contest benefited St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital and some other great charities!

Interview with Edge Strongman Gavin Westenburger

Posted 07 May 2011 in Articles

Gavin has done some feats of strength that most are doing that are 10 years older than him. He stands at 5-10 at 290 and he's every bit as strong as he looks and loves the challenge of strongman.
