STRONG IS EMPOWERED
At Power Plant Gym, we foster a community of like-minded individuals who are on a mission to become stronger and more knowledgeable, and to support each other along the way. Training is always hard, and you will always be challenged. But it should always be something you enjoy with people you enjoy.
OUR GYM INCLUDES
Power Plant Gym has everything you need to train the “Big Three.” With 2 power racks and 4 additional squat stations you’ll never have to wait for the bros to quit curling for you to squat. We’re also fully equipped with 3 EliteFTS competition benches, 2 deadlift platforms, Rogue Westside power bars, a full range of specialty bars, and thousands of pounds of York and Ivanko metal plates. And if you’re new to lifting or want to tighten up your technique, we have qualified coaches with competition experience who are ready to help.
There’s something satisfying, empowering, and downright bada$$ about pulling trucks, lifting kegs overhead, and flipping giant tires. You can learn to do all that and more with our collection of strongman implements and knowledgeable coaches to make it happen. We have all kinds of speciality equipment and a huge, flat “backyard” to play in. We also have enough space to run events inside during the winter.
Power Plant Gym is the proud home of Katie’s Ladies all-female strongwoman team, which has produced multiple Nationals-qualified competitors since 2013, and an Arnold Sports Fest International competitor in 2016/2017.
In the past few years, we’ve seen an explosion of “functional fitness” offerings and brands, and with that comes a certain image. Forget that image! Forget all the stories you’ve heard about puking, torn hands, and passing out. Power Plant is different. We fully embrace the founding principles of functional fitness – that fitness is the body’s work capacity across broad time and modal domains, and that the way to improve fitness is with constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. However, we firmly believe in the importance of learning technique and mechanics before adding intensity to workouts. We see functional fitness differently, and we’re excited to bring this methodology back to its accessible and proven roots.
Also known as “Olympic-Style” Weightlifting. We have 5 platforms – each with its own set of Pendlay kilo plates – 4 men’s and 4 women’s Eleiko bars, jerk blocks, pulling blocks, and squat stands. This is all available ANY TIME with no crazy or limiting hours. We are also home to “Power Plant Barbell Club”, an official USA Weightlifting club headed by club coach Brian Feeley.
Kettlebell training is both a great intro to strength training, and a practical supplement to any strength program. Power Plant’s kettlebell instructors, Mike Buscaglia and Aaron Schott, are certified through StrongFirst – a leader in kettlebell training. Both are available for 1-on-1 instruction. Power Plant Gym has kettlebells available from 15lbs to 97lbs.
STRONG IS FOR EVERYONE
Anyone can be strong, and everyone’s strong is different. Maybe your life involves competitive sports. Maybe it involves chasing kids around. Maybe you’re a coach, or a dad, or an administrative assistant. A lawyer, a hairdresser, a professor. Or maybe you’re a few of these all at once. Strength comes in all shapes and sizes with all different goals. Whatever strength your life demands, Power Plant Gym will help you build it.
