York Barbell is home to our distribution center, corporate offices, retail outlet store and the Weightlifting Hall of Fame and museum.
The HOF houses a diverse history of strength sports. Their evolution from mythology to the early Olympic games, the 19th and 20th century amateur and professional strongmen to the current specialized sports of Olympic weightlifting, power lifting and body building.
Many unique pieces of weightlifting and strongman history are available to view. Such as busts of founder Bob Hoffman and legend Steve Stanko, as well as a life size statue of historic strongman Eugene Sandow and a very rare (only one in existance) death mask of Maurice Tillet, better known as "The French Angel".
