Local Powerlifter is Training Other Athletes to Win

In his early teens, Steve Helmicki considered himself a bit of an undersized football player, which led him to begin training in his parents’ attic with a DP vinyl and sand weight set and a Bill Grant fitness manual. While countless other young athletes might have a similar story to tell, very few — if any — have ever taken it quite as far as Helmicki.

His passion for fitness and weightlifting would eventually lead him to national and world powerlifting titles and even some world records. In fact, he’s built a weightlifting resume that goes beyond being impressive. Statistically, he is among the all-time greats in a sport that doesn’t get a tremendous amount of exposure. If it did, he’d almost certainly be a household name by now.   

In 2007 he founded Primordial Strength Inc. with the goal of making his style of training accessible to everyone. His passion now is focused on training athletes and teams across Western New York on all levels, teaching them what he has learned over the course of a lifetime. Teams of student athletes from Amherst, West Seneca, JFK, Orchard Park, East Aurora, Southwestern, Jamestown, Lancaster and St. Francis high schools have trained with him, as well as college athletes attending UB, Niagara, Canisius, ECC and Buffalo State ... to name only the local educational institutions. 

“The Primordial lifestyle is efficient, intelligent and fulfilling,” said Helmicki. “It provides an opportunity to achieve anything.”

From sports training to advanced neck training, emotional training, anti-concussion training, military training and much more, Primordial Strength offers proven solutions. For more information on this WNY success story, please visit http://primordialstrengthsystems.com.
