AREA 56 began in a 400 square foot storage unit in 2013. Starting with a stack of plates, some tires and atlas stones, a few bars and a squat rack, and with a lot of hard work, AREA 56 quickly began attracting some of the strongest lifters in the Johnstown area. In January of 2014 AREA 56 moved into it's current 2500 square foot facility and has grown into a destination for serious lifters in western Pennsylvania.
