Would you see any value in a training log post from someone more on the beginner's side of his lifting career? Just a thought as I was logging my own training from today's workout and judging it against my current goals. It

Jeremy,

It looks like your question got cut off for some reason, but I think I go the gist enough to offer some insight.

Generally speaking, in order to obtain a sponsorship with us, you must be at the elite/pro level of your respective sport. Elitefts has however from time to time brought on athletes that are not yet at the pinnacle of their careers. Depending on the athlete, it can certainly be helpful to watch how a novice develops into a high level athlete over the years.

Ted Toalston comes to mind... Ted joined the team as a novice but has since totaled pro. Molly Edwards took a similar path if I remember correctly.

The key to obtaining a sponsorship from any company is to view it like applying for a job. Don't focus on your lifting abilities as much as what you can bring to the table in terms of adding value to the company and positively representing the brand.

You may not be the strongest lifter in your class, but what do you bring to the table that other lifters at your level and above do not?

Below is the link to our sponsorship application. Take a shot.
