Hammer Strength Celebrates 25 Years
Hammer Strength, the world's foremost strength training equipment line, will host a strength training clinic from May 19-20 in Cincinnati, where the brand and its storied clinics were forged to celebrate 25 years of bringing athletic training and education to the athletic community.
The 2017 Midwest Regional Elite Hammer Strength Clinic - Special 25th Anniversary Edition is one of 10 regional clinics Hammer Strength is hosting across the United States and Canada this year, and it will feature an impressive lineup of coaches, players and attendees to continue Hammer Strength's legacy of promoting training and education within the athletic community.
"These clinics have become more than I ever imagined," said Gary A. Jones, founding inventor of Hammer Strength. "Hands-on sharing of real ideas and tested techniques that help build real champions. We knew it then, and we know it now...bringing together the athletic community for a fun and educational sharing event is amazing."
The two-day Midwest Regional Elite Clinic is bigger than ever, boasting more than 100 coach attendees from throughout the Midwest and a strong lineup of 13 event speakers, who will cover sports performance, strength training techniques and fitness program tips, guidance, advice and more. These include:
- Mickey Marotti, assistant athletic director for football sports performance, The Ohio State University;
- Brady Collins, director of football sports performance, University of Cincinnati;
- Chip Morton, head strength & conditioning coach, Cincinnati Bengals;

"We couldn't be more excited about this lineup and bringing the clinic back home to Cincinnati," said Lon Record, national athletics manager at Life Fitness, which owns Hammer Strength. "Hammer Strength doesn't just supply equipment for coaches and facilities. We aim to create and empower a community that is building the next generation of athletes."
