We are a private (invite-only) strength training club, the center of a nation-wide weightlifting team, a research institute, Zen-training center, charity organization, science & physical educational resource, and a family.
We specialize in bridging the gap between Mind & Body, training both to be at peak performance. We are bringing back what the Ancient Greeks and the Ancient Chinese knew thousands of years ago: the only way to reach your true potential is to train your Mind & Body to their fullest, and bring them together in harmony and balance.

The Intensity Institute for Science & Humanity is an organization dedicated to saving the world through the promotion of physical, scientific, and holistic education and outreach."Intensity = Investment x Challenge" - Chip Conrad
Our investments in meeting the challenges of the world include:
In addition to that, our "for profit" company, Weightlifting Academy, runs on the "Tithe" business model: 10% of all profits go right back into the charity fund.
In 2014, one of our primary programs of focus is Weights for Wells. This programs goal is to build wells for 3rd world communities in areas where water is as scarce as their resources.
You do not need to be a member of Asheville Strength (or Weightlifting Academy) to get involved, but we strongly encourage you to join our family, and help us make the world a better place.
