Forza, in Italian, means strength. In English, it means the toughest strength equipment available. Forza Strength Systems began as the dream of a young Italian man. Drawn to the sport of powerlifting, he wanted to train on equipment built for serious use. So in 1981, the first Forza bench press was carefully manufactured in a small shop in Spokane, Washington. A decade later, with the release of the ground-breaking Forza Super Bench (F-200 Competition Power Bench), the modern Forza Strength Systems was born. The Forza Super Bench has been featured in Powerlifting USA, PowerMag, Monster Muscle, Muscle and Fitness, and countless other strength publications numerous time. Forza’s Super Bench is requested by many top lifters, meet promoters, club owners, coaches, and strength enthusiasts all over the world.
