Portland, OR – Today Kabuki Strength unveiled a website that serves as the platform for a comprehensive system to optimize human athletic performance. Founded by accomplished businessmen and powerlifting record holders, Chris Duffin and Rudy Kadlub, Kabuki Strength provides a website for athletes who want to move better in their sport, get stronger and commit to continuous improvement.
At kabukistrength.com, athletes can access the Kabuki Movement System, a proprietary methodology that includes an education curriculum, technology-enabled data driven coaching and specially designed equipment to deliver a system that optimizes an individual’s human potential. Kabukistrength.com delivers the first sports-specific movement, strength training and rehab information. The site also provides a scientific knowledge base from contributors in the medical physiology and sports psychology fields as well as insights into the journals of leading strength athletes.
Kabuki Strength CEO, Chris Duffin, is a powerlifting world record holder and author with a business background that ranges from engineering to executive leadership roles in the manufacturing sector and has brought the philosophy of Kaizen, or continuous improvement to Kabuki Strength. “I’ve been lifting competitively for over 25 years and the thing that has driven me to reach my goals and set world powerlifting records was the idea that I could improve both physically and mentally each day. The approach starts from within—bringing a warrior attitude to everything. A true warrior overlooks nothing and pays attention to the details, acting on his goals and studies how to improve. Kabuki Strength supplies the training plans and sparks the internal motivation to get better each and every day,” said Duffin.
Athletes can come to the site to receive virtual personalized coaching and enroll in the Kabuki Movement System certification process. Kabuki Strength’s “Kaizen” approach is entirely fact based. The Kaizen philosophy looks for improvement in the metrics by which athletic performance is measured and goes a step further by helping individuals transform their lifestyle—a lifestyle that uses physical performance as the catalyst to a better qualify of life.

We’ve brought Olympians, professional athletes and movement experts to create a knowledge base that sport-specific athletes can learn and excel from,” said Kadlub.
