Welcome to The Pit Barbell Club

Ephesians 6:10 -"Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power"

Pit News

The Pit Barbell Club hosted a Street Strongman Event on 9.5.15 – Saturday of labor day weekend. We had many inquiries about this event in the month before, but we had only 8 contestants, possibly due to the heat and the holiday weekend. It turned out to be a nice size meet for all the scheduled events. It was 94 degrees and very humid. All would agree it was a great FIRST strongman event!
