Dave Gallagher is the owner of Savage Barbell.  Savage Barbell is not his full time job. Dave is a full time fire fighter in Southern California and runs Savage on his days off from the fire station. He started Savage Barbell after a very poor customer service experience at the CrossFit Games in 2014.  He thought, “these people have such a great community and this is how they treat us?” He started Savage with a college buddy, who runs a web design marking company in Huntington Beach, California. They wanted to “offer a great product line that knows without its customers, we are nothing!”   In this episode of Barbell Shrugged, the crew breaks into the intricacies of small business, building a clothing brand, competing against the giant in the industry, and how being a full time firefighter captain fuels the mindset and success of the company.   http://savagebarbell.com/shrugged to save 25% on your first purchase.   Minute Breakdown:   1-10 What happens when Plan A doesn’t work. 11-20 The right way to sponsor athletes. 21-30 What it is like the first time you fight a fire. 31-40 Firefighter training regimen and injury recovery. 41-50 Creating brand loyalty and hustling  51-60 How to structure your day for success 61-70 - Scaling your business but not growing beyond your means   Connect with Savage Barbell   Anders Varner on Instagram   Doug Larson on Instagram --------------------------------------------- 20 REP BACK SQUAT PROGRAM --------------------------------------------- Please Support Our Sponsors   Savage Barbell Apparel - Save 25% on your first order using the code “SHRUGGED”   Organifi - Save 20% using code: “Shrugged” at organifi.com/shrugged   WHOOP - Save $30 on 12 or 18 month membership plan using code “SHRUGGED” at checkout ------------------------------------------------- One Ton Challenge    Find your 1rm in the snatch, clean, jerk, squat, dead, bench.    Add them up to find your One Ton Total.    The goal is 2,000 pounds for men and 1,200 for women.    “What is the One Ton Challenge”   “How Strong is Strong Enough”   “How do I Start the One Ton Challenge” ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Show notes at: http://www.shruggedcollective.com/bbs-savage -----------------------------------------------------------------------   ► Subscribe to Barbell Shrugged's Channel Here ► Subscribe to Shrugged Collective's Channel Here http://bit.ly/BarbellShruggedSubscribe
