At Grinder Gym we offer the equipment and instruction for the sport of Strongman.
Strongman is a weightlifting-based strength sport where the athletes compete in several events involving different aspects of mental discipline, physical strength, speed, agility, and muscle endurance. Competitions use very heavy loads with many odd objects unique only to the sport of Strongman. Many of these lifts are based on some type of Squat, Over Head Press, and Deadlift. Along with the variety of lifts based on the static movements, strongman also incorporates many heavy dynamic lifts. Lifts that involve holding, loading, flipping, carrying, pushing, and dragging loads over a distance. These lifts can be tested based on time held, max loads, moving for speed, and/or the most reps for time.
It is our goal to provide an inspiring atmosphere that athletes can push themselves to achieve the very best. At Grinder Gym we offer Strongman events at least four times per year to give lifters an opportunity to showcase their hard work in a competitive environment. These local meets help to prepare our athletes for higher level competition at the State, National, and International level.
