A Few Questions With: Randi Colwell
Written by: Ivy Knight
The really cool thing about powerlifting is that it's for everyone. As long as you put in the work, you get strong. As long as you you're humble, you keep getting stronger and as long you're willing to help others in the process, you become a part of this beautiful community we all love! And Randi Colwell has done and continues to do all those things and why we wanted to ask her a few questions...

How did you find powerlifting?

I found powerlifting shortly after I competed in a body building competition. I realized that I loved the aspect of training for something but not so much being on stage. I started working at a supplement store and the girl (who ended up turning into a very close friend of mine) I worked with told me I should give powerlifting a try. She showed me a couple things and referred me to a coach and it started from there.

What’s the most challenging part of your life as a powerlifter and how do you combat it?

The most challenging thing I find with wearing so many hats, and trying to be a powerlifter is it’s honestly just finding time to recharge my social battery and to make sure I am doing so. It’s a lot to be a mom, a coach, a business woman and then to be an athlete on top of that. Some days I find training really hard because I’ve been in the gym all day talking I just need time to sit and un wind a little but never get to do so as when I get home it’s time to get to the mom hat on. 

As a mom, what do you want your kids to know about you? 

What I would like my kids to know about me being a mom is that it’s okay to mess up and make mistakes it’s apart of being human.

What’s one thing you wish you could go back and tell yourself when you first started powerlifting?

One thing I wish I could go back and tell myself just getting into powerlifting is to not compare myself to other people and how much weight they are moving. Everyone starts somewhere and you’ll get further if you focus on just you!
