Adam Auerbach has been actively involved in the weightlifting industry practically his entire life. He first took an interest in physical fitness with his father’s plastic sand filled dumbbells and ankle weights at the age of six. At age ten he became the proud owner of his first “real” 110 lbs. iron combination barbell-dumbbell set. Later in high school, Adam spent his recreation period hitting the weights in the high school gym. While attending the University of Colorado at Boulder, Adam took up competitive powerlifting, eventually landing a spot on the International Powerlifting Federation (IPF) Junior World Team in 1988.
