Hailing from Phoenix, Arizona, Jerry Pritchett has been interested in strength training and the world of the Strongmen since he was 15.
It was in 2008 when he found and entered his first local Strongman contest in Phoenix, Arizona and took second place, which gave him the inspiration and drive to train even harder and make it to the WSM contest. He won the Strongman Event at the 2013 LA Fit Expo and in 2014 finished in the top 12 at the World’s Strongest Man contest in Los Angeles.
Pritchett as well as the conventional methods of World’s Strongest Man training (such as deadflifting the average 1,020lbs) likes to add in a few additions, when asked what his routine involves he added “Zumba, Yoga and Ballroom Dance ;)”.
