Force Barbell Takes Athletes to Full Potential
Writer and Photographer / Keeley Miller
Whether you are a national strength competitor or just looking to stay in shape, Force Barbell provides a customized training schedule along with first-class trainers to help you meet your goals. Ashmon Lucas, recent HSE grad, has only been training with Force Barbell for one month but has already seen great results. Lucas threw shot put and discus for the HSE track team, reaching a PR of 50 feet for shot put and 147 feet for discus.
“Just in the past month, I have realized that my form and a lot of other things were wrong,” said Lucas. “They have been teaching me to lift. I get up every morning to come here, and that also teaches me dedication.”
Owner Tyler Miller started Force Barbell in 2012 after coaching Division One athletes. He has an extensive background in sports, including qualification for the 2008 Olympic Trials for shot put. He joined the private training sector after meeting his wife and wanting to settle down.
“A lot of what we do with athletes is injury prevention. Getting everything moving well in optimal performance comes before getting them strong, fast and explosive,” said Miller. “From a technical standpoint, there is probably no place better than Force Barbell for learning the technique of weightlifting.”
Force Barbell has clients from the age of 10 to 67, including Nathan Barna, Strongman 2015 USS Strongest Heavyweight Teen in America.
“I would definitely recommend joining,” said Lucas. “Force Barbell challenges you. They make charts that are suited for you. They analyze you and figure out your strengths and weaknesses, so it is way more personal.”
