Our Mission

The act of lifting weights has always been closely associated with many of life’s struggles; When the weight pushes you down you force your way back up just like when the weight of life brings you down you must dig deep and fight your way back to the top. Every member of our team embodies this concept, when the heaviness of life or that weight on the barbell is staring you down you must look within yourself, rise to the challenge, and Face the Bar. We challenge you, just like we challenge ourselves daily to rise to the difficulties of life and to not choose the easy or convenient path, but instead to follow the much less traveled and much more rewarding path to your own personal greatness.
