Gym nation-wide. Interested in becoming a member?
Powercorps is about respect. Membership is free* but it isn't cheap.
- Everyone, of any skill and experience level, is welcome. We all at
one time started from nothing and we know fresh blood is vital to the future
of strength sports.
- Powercorps is about growing and succeeding as a team and community,
not as individuals. The sole metric we use is whether you're giving your
maximum effort. All egos must be checked at the door.
- We believe creating a safe and encouraging space for women, LGBT, and
other minority competitors is very important. If you ever feel we're failing
to live up to that, please let us know right away.
- Powercorps members rely on each other for motivation and accountability
just as much as anything else, so please be on time and consistent in your
- If at all possible, always stick around until the end to make sure every
team member gets the most out of their workout and that equipment you helped
use gets put back in its proper place.
- Be respectful of our gym. Especially when training with a large group,
it's easy to misplace bottles, wraps, and other small items. Be sure to
leave the space as you found it.

While not a traditional weightlifting sport, being successful at armwrestling
incorporates a lot of the same training principles powerlifters and especially
strongmen will be familiar with, emphasizing grip, conditioning, and controlled
explosive movements in addition to raw strength. Armwrestling has become more
than just a bar sport, with organized competitive leagues running sanctioned events.
Whether you're looking to add a little variety to your training or searching
for a new sport to sink your time into, stop by one of our training sessions
soon and see what serious armwrestling is all about.
The Armbreakers meet:
- Tuesday: 11AM
- Thursday: Noon
