The stuff of
Warren Lincoln Travis, Thomas Inch, Milo Steinborn, Louis Cyr, Apollon, Sig Klein and many more of the Old Time Strongmen had a part in creating what are now legendary feats of strength with their own unique equipment.
Atomic Atheltic sells the most unique equipment you will ever find.
Barbells, dumbbells, thick handled, thin handled, forged globes, shot loading globes, blast furnace fired finish, painted, or chromed, these are just some of the concepts we have worked with in the past.
We occasionally make one-of-a-kind items and have them in stock. More likely our unusual items are snatched up by serious Iron fans before we can even get them on the website. We like nothing more than to make something extrememly special (and no doubt historic)with your own ideas.
The top photo shows a Detroit Special, made for the University of Michigan football weightroom. Can we do another exactly like this one? We highly doubt it, but we are coming up with similar items all the time. It is the unique items such as these that make gyms legendary.
Please note that we are NOT associated with either the Detroit Bar Bell Company, or Detroit Barbell gym. If you are in the area, you are welcome to stop by our warehouse and training area, in Bowling Green, OH. Please call first. I would hate to miss you because of prior appointments.
