USA Wrestling, in partnership with the Greg Strobel Leadership Academy (GSLA) is preparing to wrap-up the 3rd Annual Greg Strobel ‘Make A Weight’ 30-Day Challenge.

This year’s challenge began a month ago on Wednesday, February 8 and is scheduled to end Thursday, March 9, 2022. Participants of the challenge have done an amazing job of representing the ‘spirit’ of the challenge.

Every year Greg challenged himself to make his college wrestling weight to demonstrate the importance of discipline, accountability and consistency, and demonstrating the value of creating a “lifetime of good habits”.

Although this year’s 30-Day Challenge is coming to end, as we have done previously the opportunity to contribute to the GSLA remains open through Friday, March 31, 2023.
