Posted by Jeffrey Pape on


WrestlingGear.Com is a unique position in that we have wrestlers, coaches, parents, mma fighters and others come into our store looking for wrestling shoes. We are able to get a bunch of information from what our customers are looking for.  Almost always customers come in our store with something in mind. They have seen a cool pair of shoes somewhere on the web or in person at a practice or tournament.  There are several things to figure out when buying a pair of shoes. First since most of the time it's not the wrestler buying the pair of shoes, the parent's need to set the budget. A starting range for adult sized entry level wrestling shoes is $60 to $75....

Think Big - You Can Achieve More Than You Think You Can...

Posted by Jeffrey Pape on


Think Big! You Can Achieve more than you think you can...if you set goals, write them down and work towards achieving them... Looking back on my wrestling career I was able to achieve things mostly through hard work and putting the time in working in the weight room, running, and looking to wrestle against the best practice partners I could find.  I compare it to the success I have had running small businesses too. No one really sees me up at 4:00 am working on the business or staying up late when the kids are in bed thinking about the next day's meetings. Or all the years I did not take out a salary, they just see some of the successes...

Eating the right foods on match day is just as important as having the perfect wrestling shoes and wrestling gear. In order to reach your highest level of performance, you need to watch what you eat both after weigh-ins and before matches.

Sammy Brooks - Will His Mullet be a National Champion?

Posted by Jeffrey Pape on


Hard to believe I have known the Brooks family for quite some time. I was surprised to see him become a youtube sensation. I was not surprised to see him doing very well at the University of Iowa. I have to admit it was a great interview and so far has racked up just shy of 300,000 views on Youtube. Will he match Stevo's viral video? Probably not, but we were one of the first to help spread the word about Stevo so who knows. Maybe Sammy Brooks will be known just as "Sammy." Sam Brooks wrestled at Oak Park High School based in Oak Park (go figure), Illinois. Oak Park, IL is not too far away from our store/warehouse...

Conor McGregor Interview after UFC 196 Loss

Posted by Jeffrey Pape on


I saw this interview and had to share it on our wrestling page. I think we lose sight of the athlete's true personality when we only see them trying to sell fights and get more people interested in their fights. I think it's great marketing and definitely something that wrestling and really any person or business can learn from. Make your business or your sport worthy of being talked about. Make it fun. Make it exciting. Give great interviews. Great interviews like this one I shared below. I think just about any athlete can learn something from this interview. Even if you are a professional fighter, an executive with a company, and of course even a grade school or amateur...
