USA Weightlifting is thrilled to welcome goodr as our official sunglass partner for 2021. Through our partnership, the totally ripped brands will develop weightlifting-inspired shades, launch exclusive giveaways and donate products to athletes at USAW events.
goodr launched in 2015 with performance sunglasses for runners. Due to their insatiable lust for power, they added four verticals, creating sunnies for beasting, cycling, golfing and gaming. In 2018, BEAST goodr launched, catering to the Crossfit/OCR/Functional Fitness/weightlifting community. The shades feature polarized lenses, promise no-slip no-bounce performance, and include a BFG frame option for those with bigger melons.
In celebration of the partnership, goodr’s avian CEO Carl the Flamingo said, “SQUAAAWK!” This roughly translates to: “We are psyched to join forces with USA Weightlifting for 2021. They probably picked us because I’m so ripped. It’s hard to tell, because I’m a bird, but I have a very chiseled physique. I am an absolute unit. My body is perfect. Feast your eyes.”
