Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender that is strength." - Arnold Schwarzenegger
Nothing embodies this sentiment more than Conan the Barbarian enduring the Wheel of Pain. His youth, adolescence and young adulthood spent suffering and slaving, as he pushed that merciless wheel round and round into oblivion, through the worst weather that hell could conjure. However, the toil and torment turned Conan into an unstoppable, gigantic force.
We want to throw our weight behind you, to help you transform into a gigantic force too. We have our own version of the Wheel of Pain in competition bumper plate form. Like Conan, they'll tear you down, only to lift you up, while never failing on you. You'll respect and admire the pain they put you through so much, that you might fashion a bumper plate pendant and wear it around your neck.
After you get through the adversity, you'll come to love us. Here's why.
