What Is Powerlifting?

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Powerlifting is the sport of maximal strength. Powerlifters compete by attempting 1-rep maxes in the squat, bench press and deadlift. It’s a sport that requires much more than strength. It requires discipline, determination, mental fortitude and a desire to get better every day. People of all ages, shapes, sizes and ability levels can compete, making it one of the most accessible sports in existence.

Is The Strength House a powerlifting gym?

Yes and no. We’re a strength training facility that primarily focuses on getting people stronger. We use the squat, bench press and deadlift – the three contest lifts in the sport of powerlifting – as our primary tools to do this. Because of this, we train a lot of powerlifters.

Do I need to be a powerlifter to train at The Strength House?

Nope. We train plenty of powerlifters and help them compete, but we also train lots of people who simply want to get stronger. Either way, you’ll be at home at The Strength House.
