Podcast 8:19 Steel City Ruck Club- Kristi Devenyi & Jason Prindle

The Steel City Ruck Club is a PA-based GORUCK affiliated rucking group.  The simple definition of rucking is moving with weight on your back. For more information on GORUCK, including their gear and events, go to:


We interviewed Kristi Devenyi and Jason Prindle.

Kristi (in her own words): I’m a kettlebell trainer and kettlebell sport competitor based out of Pittsburgh Kettlebell & Performance. My journey with GORUCK started because I love the team based aspect of the events and the training is a blast!

Jason (in his own words): I consider myself a try anything kind of athlete, as long as I’m competing, even if it is just against myself. I grew up on football and lifting as my first serious endeavors. In college I discovered rugby and it consumed my fitness life for 15 years. After recovering from major knee surgery I fell into rucking which brought me back to my love for physical challenges. I started when rucking was pretty new to the nonmilitary world and got my ass kicked in my first event and fell in love with GORUCK events.
