Cultural inclusion inspires discovery and innovation. Great ideas push the world forward and  can come from anywhere. At NORCAL POWERLIFTING, our diverse backgrounds and perspectives spark that discovery and innovation by embracing the spirit of individuality while thriving off the value of cultural inclusion. It is reflected in our brand, mission statement, business associates, staff, ports of call, and most prominently in our lifters. It is who we are, the cloth from which we are cut.
