We at Vulkan Weightlifting have invested heavily on teamwork and camaraderie to improve athletic performance, be it in the sport of weightlifting, or in everyday life.  We value the community we have built, and the blue collar work ethic of our lifters.  We think the atmosphere in our training hall and the friendships cultivated there is second to none!

Weightlifting is our passion, we hope you will give us the opportunity to share that passion with you.

We invite you to come in and lift heavy with us.

We work hard, we sweat, we grind, we support our fellow athletes and the Weightlifting community.

We’re not fancy, we’re just tough.
