“Big is not strong, strong is strong” – Louie Simmons

Legends are born but legends never die. Louie Simmons lives on through the strength he developed in others. A cherished conversation with the Westside Barbell founder just weeks before he passed was an honor…and one we are stoked to share with you.

Louie Simmons changed lifting. His methodology, his equipment, his attitude. His home of freakishly strong men and women is a mecca in the heart of Ohio. His spirit continues to light the fire in so many who pull and push every day.
