Bringing Strongman to Western Canada.

A couple months ago a friend and I decided we want to help grow Strongman in Western Canada. We asked ourselves:

What was stopping strongman from growing?

Now, don’t get me wrong, there is a tight nit community here in Western Canada especially in the Vancouver area (where we are). It just wasn’t growing and reaching the masses. We have a lot of crossfit boxes, I mean a lot but when you asked someone about Strongman they had no idea.

After really dissecting the issue we determined it came down to two things

  1. Equipment was heavy and hard to come by.
  2. Strongman training hasn’t made its way to┬áthe west coast.

As a result we decided to jump in head first and open Brace Strength. With Brace Strength we are hoping to solve these two pain points. By providing quality cost effective equipment and training seminars to local fitness clubs, our goal is to make Strongman more accessible.

Centralized in Surrey, BC we are able to custom fabricate strength equipment and ship it at extremely reasonable prices to Western Canada and along the West Coast.

If you’re looking for some specialty equipment or just want to chat, drop us a line.
