Hi there! My name is Joshua Lorenzen and I am co-owner of the THE BAR, along with founder and friend James. I actively work as a paramedic/firefighter, a career I have been involved with since 1998. While staying fit is a requirement of my profession, I have discovered an appreciation for powerlifting since my son began competing 2 years ago. Like James, I am a USPA coach, and believe that in order for an individual to be successful in any strength discipline, coaches must know the individual and their goals in order to develop a specific training path that fits them. Regardless of what your strength goals may be, regardless of if you want to compete or not, stop by THE BAR, let us help you get started on fulfilling your goals.
