This is what it's all about.
Athletic strength, also known as powerlifting, is a strength sport consisting of three movements: the squat, the bench press and the deadlift. During competitions, athletes are classified by age group, weight and gender. Then, the athletes have three tries on each movement where the goal is to validate the heaviest bar possible. Three referees determine the validity of the trials according to the rules established by the different federations.
Beyond the strength required to execute the movement, this sport requires a lot of technical knowledge to optimize the lifts on the three movements.
Being a very popular sport in other countries like the USA and Northern Europe, Powerlifting is still an emerging sport in Switzerland. Our ambition is to become the first powerlifting club in French-speaking Switzerland by 2023.
The opening of a hall adapted to the practice of this sport would give visibility to this discipline. The club will give it’s members access to the world of competition. The club’s objective is also to make the practice of powerlifting accessible and to allow its members to participate in national and international competitions. Finally, the club wishes to create a community through our social networks. Through our digital communication, we will promote our different goods and services.
