The Sport of Powerlifting simply consists of the “Big Three”: Back Squat, Bench Press and Deadlift. In competition, athletes have 9 attempts to lift the most weight possible in each movement.
Fortius is the ONLY Certified USA Powerlifting (USAPL) Regional Training Center in San Diego. With 17,000 square feet of training facility, you’ll never run out of lifting space! With USA Powerlifting (USAPL) Senior National Level Coaches, it’s no surprise that Fortius had sent 4 athletes to the 2016 USAPL Raw Nationals in just the first year of their Powerlifting careers. We focus on the most important parts of becoming a well-rounded, elite athlete: sportsmanship, technique and accessory work. Without an emphasis on those, your “Big Three” will go nowhere.
Our Powerlifting team averages 5 athletes competing at any given meet, which provides a chance for the community and friendship to grow among the athletes of Fortius!
Our Powerlifting program includes 5 workouts a week, and we have coached Powerlifting hours every weekday from 12-1:30pm and 4-8pm, and Saturday from 9am-1pm. We also have the most open hours of any Powerlifing/Weightlifting gym in San Diego!
