Founder, Owner, Does anything and everything, Pretends to know what he is doing

Jordan had no idea what to do with his life so for some crazy reason he opened a strength gym. He has been in the gym since 13 years old, competed twice in Powerlifting and has a tiny bit of experience in Weightlifting and Strongman. He along with Katie and his Father put together the majority of the gym including drywall, painting, electrical, storage, bathrooms and equipment. Every single mat you step on was laid down by just him! You can find him laying on the floor during team degenerate hours (after 10pm) between squat sets. He also made this website with zero experience and did it the hard way (and dumb way) of NOT using wordpress so if you spot any thing that needs fixing let us know! Also 99% of e-mails and IG messages are responded to by him.



Lady of the Throne

Katie is the one who keeps the place all together and to keep Jordan some what in line. She is usually in during degenerate hours and helps keep the gym neat and tidy. She also feeds the feral cats outside and really wants to take one home.

He competed under Team Canada at Commonwealths in New Zealand in 2022 and came first in bench press and 5th overall. With encouragement from fellow members, he started doing online coaching for Powerlifting and now coaches a good portion of the gym. If you are an intermediate or higher and do not need in person training, we recommend Carlo.
