Can I Still Compete at 40?... Spartan Nationals Wrestling Championship [vlog]

Can I Still Compete at 40?… Spartan Nationals Wrestling Championship [vlog]

As you all know, I have always loved wrestling. It’s something that I’ve always been passionate about, ever since high school. And although the glory days are behind me, I still try and keep in shape to keep up with this wonderful sport.

I attended the Spartan wrestling tournament in Jacksonville Florida this year along with my wrestling partner Lex, and personal wrestling trainer Georgi (who also competed in the Olympics!).

It was an amazing three days of being around the people I love, as I got to participate in three different kinds of wrestling; beach, Greco and freestyle. I might be 41 years old, but I know I'm going to be back competing next year for sure!

    Say, Russell, are you interested in doing a little training while we are at FHL? I would love to bring my Gi and get a few flow rolls in. How else can fellow practitioners share our love for Jiu Jitsu?

    Great to see you doing something you truly love wrestling and having fun wrestling with others..truly inspirational.

      I’m so thankful to keep wrestling after all these years… ha ha !

    Congrats Russell on continuing to pursue wrestling! How inspiring!

    I was wondering why you were looking more fit and cut lately. Loved the video.

    • Russell Brunson - ClickFunnels on August 13, 2021 at 1:40 pm

      I really appreciate it!

    Get it!!! Proof that our first passion never leaves us! Keep killing it!

    Russell I had no idea you were wrestler. Congrats on second! Is the tourney by weight class only or is it also by age group?

  7. S Meeks on August 12, 2021 at 6:03 pm

    Russell thank you for bringing wrestling to the front row. One of the things that I am constantly trying to understand is why with the popularity of mma and wwe is amateur wrestling so hard to access. All of the big tournaments and even the Olympics are almost impossible to watch or access.

    I love that you’re a big kid and have stayed connected to the things you love. And had a chuckle with your final line… so glad your left toe feels great LOL.

    • Russell Brunson - ClickFunnels on August 13, 2021 at 1:41 pm

      It’s so important to do the things that make you happy ?

    • Russell Brunson - ClickFunnels on August 13, 2021 at 12:27 pm

      That’s awesome! I believe that wrestling has taught me a lot about entrepreneurship… it’s part of my life I’ll never take for granted!

  12. Ephraim Muzavazi on August 13, 2021 at 5:13 am

    Truly loved this side of Russell kinda reminds me why I started on this journey of entrepreneurship to serve but also to be able to do things that matter to me without limitations
