Rise Sports Performance has partnered with Travis Mash and Mash Elite Sports.

Mash joined Rise as the director of sports science and biomechanical testing. He will develop an athlete testing and monitoring system.

Mash has spent decades studying the barbell. He is one of the few people – if not the only one – to bridge the worlds of powerlifting, Olympic weightlifting, and athletic strength and conditioning.

He is a current world champion in powerlifting and has held the all-time pound-for-pound world record. He was also an Olympic hopeful in weightlifting and was recruited for the U.S. men’s bobsled team.

He competed at a world-class level in Olympic weightlifting. He has coached professional Olympic weightlifters alongside Don McCauley and Glenn Pendlay at Team MDUSA and now coaches the most successful weightlifting team in America.

He has coached 8-year-olds, high school athletes, NFL players, elite powerlifters, Olympic hopefuls, and even average Joes wanting to get in shape and middle-aged mothers who struggled to do a weightless squat.
