About Us

The team at powerliftingbelts.org consists of a group of experienced powerlifters, bodybuilders health and fitness enthusiasts with a combined experience of over 30 years in lifting and fitness.  Between us, we have tried many types of gym and powerlifting equipment over the years. Some have been poor and some extremely good hence why we decided to create this website.

There is also a lot of misinformation and broscience when it comes to health and fitness. Again, we hoped to make a change to that. If we could help just a few people reach their health and fitness goals, we will be happy.

We were tired of scouring the web trying to find information regarding the quality of various weight lifting accessories before taking the plunge and making a purchase.  We also didn’t like how there are many smaller manufacturers making superb products and were not getting the recognition that they deserved.

We hope that you find the information on this site useful and we help you to achieve your physical fitness goals.
