Become a Member!

To become a ‘member’ of the club, perform one repetition of a squat, bench press, and deadlift. After all three lifts are successfully completed, the total weight lifted is added up. Successful lifters will receive a T-Shirt and have their results posted on our 1,000lb or 500lb Club boards.

  • To become a member of the 500 lb club (women only), the total weight lifted must equal 500 lbs or greater.
  • To be a member of the 1,000 lb club (open), the total weight lifted must be 1,000 lbs or greater.

Email Fitness Coordinator, Sylvia at to set up an appointment for your lifts. This challenge is ongoing and can be completed most days of the week but all tests must be scheduled no less than 48 hours in advance. Participants may re-test at any time but must be scheduled on a different day with the correct notice and scheduling.

The club is open to active duty only for now. No spectators due to COVID-19.
