The Pit Barbell Club is the best equipped strength and fitness center in the Midwest, and has been in business longer than any other gym in the state of Indiana. The Pit has earned multiple state, national and world drug-free powerlifting championships


The PIT is equipped as well as any facility I have seen. Their MOTTO alone tells me we are dealing with top-notch professionals.

The Centers of Disease Control estimates that there are 1.6 – 3.8 million sports and recreation-related concussions occurring in the United States each year. Yet in actuality, no one really knows what the exact numbers are … since many concussions go unrecognizedand undetected? Suffice it to say — it’s an epidemic. Yet, whether a concussion is sports-related, recreational-related and/or trauma-related the severity of the injury and resulting cognitive impairment would in fact be reduced if the head, neck and surrounding cervical structures wereSTRONGER. In other words, if the morphological structure is thicker and/or stiffer, the preponderance of scientific research is conclusive … that is, potentially harmful concussive forces can be better dissipated/dampened more effectively if the individual’s cervical spine musculature is stronger – this is simple physics.


          There is no area of the body that induces such beneficial physiological responses to an individual’s health and well-being as does training the musculature of the cervical spine. When you apply the laws of physics to kinetic energy dissipation of the neck … and the resulting preventative and “protective effect” on the cervical spine; as a coach, athletic trainer, strength professional and/or health care practitioner … who is charged with primary responsibility of PRUDENTLY PREPARING THE INDIVIDUAL for the rigors of the sport/task at hand, it would be foolish, neglectful and reckless (not to mention culpable) NOT to include a comprehensive head & neck strengthening program in the training prescriptions for athletes and non-athletes alike.
