About Us

BARBELLUM LLC is a small company with one goal in mind – hosting great powerlifting meets.  The mission is to have each and every lifter leave the meet with a great feeling of achievement and wanting to compete at the next BarBellum meet.

ALEX CRICHTON has been a powerlifter since 2008 and is passionate about exceeding your expectations at BarBellum competitions.  BarBellum LLC runs USA Powerlifting sanctioned meets, some unsanctioned fun meets, workshops and help lifters find coaches/mentors.

BARBELLUM LLC was born out of the love for the sport.  The only reason it exists it to promote and grow powerlifting in Michigan.  We love our lifters and welcome your feedback and suggestions. Use our Contact Us page to tell us what we’re doing right or what we can improve on.
