elitefts™ is proud to announce that Chris Duffin has joined our team of sponsored athletes.
Duffin is a dominant force in both raw and muti-ply lifting. He currently holds the all-time raw (with wraps) world record in the squat with a 860-pound lift at 220-pounds bodyweight. In 2012, he posted a raw total of 1946 pounds in the 220-pound class. In addition to his own competitive success, he has been the owner and coach of Elite Performance Center in Portland, Oregon since 2008.
With his background in engineering, Duffin approaches powerlifting at a level of technical efficiency that is unsurpassed. His insight into training have helped many of his students go on to success beyond their expectations.
In addition to the knowledge he will be offering our readers, Chris is a great example of how someone can succeed in life, balancing a career as Director of Manufacturing for a hydraulics manufacturer, family life, operating a successful gym and his own training…while excelling at all of them.
