What do you look for in someone who says they want to try weightlifting?
The attitude is the main thing. Some people think if they have some athletic ability in other things they can weightlift well. That confidence is sometimes a killer, because they really, truly believe it. Also, just being able to get out of their own heads. They have to allow themselves to be coached. Do you notice a pattern in the type of people with specific backgrounds who tend to have the athletic potential and the ability to be coached?
Gymnastics is the obvious one.

Someone coming from track and field sometimes has the explosive strength. I feel like people who come into weightlifting are not interested in doing what it takes to get strong and get skilled. I go back to saying it again: No one has the patience. Especially adults who pay to be here, unlike kids who are forced into it. Now if I yell at people, I have a business here. But they come in here and want to get good. A lot of people put that stress on themselves, especially over achieving adults in New York.

Is there stigma against equipped versus raw powerlifters? People say a lot of things. A lot of the top lifters compete in both. When I first started powerlifting, I started in raw, and I probably had more of a negative disposition toward equipped.
Doing equipped lifting is painful. You see people pass out at high level meets just from how tight and constricting the gear is, but it needs to be that tight to be effective. Because it makes you feel alive. You can always go faster, with more weight, and more reps. We listened to our customers and made the most convenient bar attachment method on the market.
