USPA | Cold Feet Classic - 2017

  • The Dirty Gym 1111 East 2nd Street Dayton, OH, 45403 United States (map)


This is a meet for all your $h!t talking training partners, new trainees and timid buddies. You know, the ones who lift hard, but get "Cold Feet" when it comes time to step on a platform. Held at The Dirty Gym Barbell Club, this will be a very accessible venue for first-time competitors. No big stage. No massive crowds (well maybe). Just lifters supporting new lifters!
