PFP Barbell was founded in January of 2017 by Maggie and Tom Duer. After participating and Coaching Crossfit for a few years,the Duers shifted their primary focus to Olympic Style Weightlifting. After bouncing around from gym to gym they opened up a USAW facility inside of Pittsburgh Fitness Project (www.pittsburghfitnessproject.com) . Since its inception, PFP Barbell has welcomed over 30 athletes to learn the Snatch and Clean and jerk included 15+ athletes competing in their first ever meets.
