Compete in UREC’s very first lifting competition – Raise the Gold Bar!
Saturday, November 3 from 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
SAC Fitness Center
- Lifter Check-In/Warm-Up: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
- Competition: 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

The competition will consist of Bench Press and Deadlift. Competitors will receive 3 attempts per lift. Spotters will be present to ensure the safety of our participants. Each lift will also have a judge - competitors must receive a signal from the judge to signify successful completion of the lift and earn credit for the attempt. If the judge does not signal success, the attempt will not count. Participants are able to choose the lifts they want to compete in.
Prizes will be awarded to the winner of each weight class, as well as the lifter with the highest weight lifted to body weight ratio.
Registration is required to participate in the event. The event is offered to students at no additional charge. The fee for faculty/staff members is $10. This fee remains the same, regardless of the number of lifts attempted. Faculty/Staff participants must hold a Gold Membership or pay the additional guest fee ($5) to enter the facility and participate in the competition.
