  1. Hey my name is Ray Shelton. I live in bedford, Va and have just began training strongman about two months ago. I currently train in Lynchburg and twice a month drive up to Roanoke to train events. I just recently found out about primal strength and was interested in maybe coming there to train my event days. I was curious if you guys had a daily rate I could pay to come train my two sessions a month? Look forward to hearing from you.
