Find your strength.

So you’re curious about strength training or you’ve already been training for a while. You’re looking to meet other students like you: intelligent, ambitious, hard-working, and interested in staying healthy. Or maybe, that’s the kind of person you want to become. 

We’re here to provide you with the community & resources you need to start lifting. If you already train, we can help you get better. 

For some, lifting can be meditation, for others, picking heavy things up and putting them down is just a great way to de-stress with your friends. Our members know, regardless of how life, work, & school go - 200 pounds is always 200 pounds.

3-lift Meet Basics and Deadlift Seminar

Location: TBD

This seminar will serve as an introduction to the concept of a classic powerlifting 3-lift meet, and will go into more depth about the deadlift in preparation for the push-pull meet on Jan 28.  

If you are curious about competing in our big 3-lift in April but don't know where to start, we will be covering the basics at the beginning of the seminar (feel free to leave after) so that you have plenty of time to prepare before the big day!

The deadlift seminar to follow will teach you about ways to program the deadlift as well as the basics of executing the lift from the setup to the controlled descent.
