It’s that time again! In 10 days we will be hosting the 2022 Texas Power Bar Open, right here at our very own Union Fitness. This will be the 10th sanctioned meet that we have been fortunate enough to hold here at Union Fitness since opening in November of 2016. Each one has gotten bigger, better, and more exciting for the lifters, as well as the spectators and fans. Obviously, we couldn’t do it without the help and support of our amazing staff, along with our good friends Doug and Candi Nostrant and their awesome team who always provide the best experience possible.
If you have never been to a powerlifting meet, I highly recommend that you check one out! Especially our meets here at Union. I may be bias, but we are very fortunate to have an amazing facility and support that allows us to hold some of the best meets that I’ve ever been a part of. Regardless of if you’re a competitor, or a spectator, there is something for you. This year we will have many great sponsors and vendors on hand providing a ton of support for the lifters and the spectators. Businesses such as Live Large, Fortifix, Victory Float Lounge, Athlete Recovery Lounge, and At War Athletics, will all be on hand with their products and services. Along with this, Edgar Snyder will be giving away $500 to the best overall Male and Female lifters, Texas Power Bars will be giving away two of their power bars, and Iron Rebel will be giving away gift certificates.
This year, we have four members who will be competing. Diana Jordan, Ava O’Brien, Brian Steinmiller, Eric Price, Jenn Robinson, and Zane Augustine are no strangers to the platform, and have been training extremely hard over the past few months to prepare. Along with this, our very own Miranda Gard and Toria Crispin will be competing in their first meet. It has been an absolute blast watching all of these individuals showing up every day and giving their all to each session.
So be sure to stop by and show them your support! If you would like to stop by, lifting will begin at 9am right outside of the main entrance. Admission is $10 for adults and free for children. We look forward to seeing all of you here, and maybe we will even see you on the platform at our next event next June.
