In our 60 years, we have had the privilege of helping to shape the sports of weightlifting and powerlifting. We have grown to support diverse communities looking to train for strength, power, and speed, and provide the best products and services to fitness facilities, as well as functional and strength training facilities across the world. We have more than 40 world championships under our lifting belts, have equipped 5 Olympic games, hundreds of competitions, and helped athletes from a wide range of professional and collegiate sports prepare to do their best when it counts. We also realize that for many who train on Eleiko, when it counts is day to day life. Being strong and able to do the things you want to do with confidence and freedom, knowing your body is capable and ready to do your best. So, it is with no less pride or commitment to excellence we equip facilities and individuals helping to build a stronger world.
Eleiko was first certified by the IWF in 1969, and has proudly supported the organization and helped grow the sport of weightlifting since then. To date, we have equipped 42 IWF world championship events, and are preparing to do so once again in Anaheim at the end of this year. We anticipate 2017 will be an incredible year for Eleiko and IWF athletes as we are committed to providing equipment that will best support the event and its athletes in pursuit of their goals.
In addition to competitive weightlifting, Eleiko has long been the equipment of choice for anyone looking for superior performance, quality, and craftsmanship. We have built a reputation for having the best bars in the business, one preferred by lifters across the globe and recognized for the superb and special “Eleiko Feeling” – a combined effect of the strong yet flexible proprietary steel which gives our bars optimal spring, the firm but not to sharp grip of our knurling and the smooth performance of our sleeves. It’s a feeling and performance you appreciate whether you are smashing world records, or setting a new personal best.
Eleiko has a long history of supporting the Powerlifting community, from athletes training for their respective sports to powerlifters competing on the world stage setting records and accomplishing lifts that to most are unimaginable. Eleiko’s range of powerlifting lifting equipment is specifically designed to meet the unique needs of powerlifters, while remaining true to our core values of quality, craftsmanship and performance. Our powerlifting bars are distinctive, featuring a stiffer design, sharper grip, and longer sleeves. The longer sleeve coupled with our thin cast iron discs allow you to load up the bar with more discs so you can nail even heavier lifts.
