BOB HOFFMAN

Bob Hoffman was one of the founding fathers of modern weightlifting. He shaped the fitness and weightlifting world through various product innovations, articles, books and also the creation of the York Barbell Club, which went on to dominate weightlifting competitions for several years.

Over 40 national championships and numerous Olympic gold medals through the 1930's to the 1970's saw the York Barbell Club taking its place in weight lifting history.
