MASON CITY – North Iowa Powerlifting along with P-town Barbell and South Side Bully (both gyms from Minnesota) and 22nd Street Barbell (from Des Moines) will be hosting a meet and greet event for Thomas Swanson and other children that may have special needs and are interested in weight lifting. Our goal is to give Thomas and others a great day of meeting people that these kids look up to.
Dan Grauerholz, a local power lifter, said Tuesday that “We have received a lot of interest in this. We don’t know how many kids to expect, but everyone can expect a good time interacting with people and some great lifting! All lifters please arrive around 11:30 or so to help with a few things and start your training session. Ideally we would like to wrap up the lifting around 2:30 and spend the rest of the time with our guests.”
The lifters will begin their workouts at 11:30 and will be ready to hit serious weights by 1:00 PM. They will be spending time between sets with the children and will be available for autographs and pictures with anyone that wants them from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM.
N.I.P. Fitness is located at 2324 South Federal Ave. in Mason City.
