CALLOSO L.L.C. is a Michigan made company with the primary goal of directing FUN and FANTASTIC powerlifting meets for lifters of any age, size, or skill level. Calloso hosts USA Powerlifting meets primarily, but also hosts some unsanctioned meets for fun. We also can connect lifters with mentors, coaches, and other helpful training information.
OUR GOAL is to grow the sport of powerlifting and to provide opportunities for lifters all over the state of Michigan to compete. We want each and every lifter to feel accomplished after competing and excited to register for their next Calloso Powerlifting meet.
What is “Calloso?”
“CALLOSO” (pronounced kah-YOH-soh) is the Spanish translation for “callous.” As powerlifters, our calloused hands are a result of the hours of intense training that we put in. And after many years of powerlifting, our calloused hands are with us for life. “Calloso” captures the pride of powerlifting, and all of the callouses, chalk, sweat, and badassery that comes with it.
