  1. Vincent Giammona

    This is my first ever powerlifting event! I am 23 yrs old and weigh 230 lbs. i want to compete on Saturday in the Open division at the 198 weight class. Do I just purchase the package and then depending on my weigh in on Friday does that determine the class I’m in?


    • If you weight 230, you would likely be in the 242 class. After purchasing your package, you’ll be sent an email to fill in your wt. class, division, etc.

  2. Freddy L Crosby

    Good evening Eric, i’m a little confused about what a crossover is. Can you please clarify with an example thanks

    • Crossover means you are entered into more than one division or event–i.e. entered into APF and AAPF, or Open and Masters.

  3. Is it free to come and watch?
