Team Phoenix is a group of likeminded people who enjoy powerlifting in the Seattle area, and enjoy competing in competitions around the world. The team is run by Kevin Stewart, the chief coach, who leads the team mostly through USAPL powerlifting meets.

Competitors from the team regularly achieve success on the national and world stage, with USAPL National events and the IPF Worlds. The latest success in Sweden is part of the team’s commitment to excellence in powerlifting, and sets them up for a strong 2018.
