Who are we?
Kabuki Strength was founded in 2015 by Chris Duffin and Rudy Kadlub. However it's history stretches back many years earlier when the two of them opened Elite Performance Center, the first true "strength gym" in the Portland area. The gym was unique in that Chris by trade was an engineer turned executive, now running manufacturing companies in various sectors. His background enabled him to build and experiment with lots of equipment and anything that could help the athlete achieve optimal performance. As EPC grew and expanded, we decided to rebrand it as "The Lab" and name the company "Kabuki Strength". The Lab currently houses manufacturing and operations functions of Kabuki Strength, and is staffed by a small group of loyal and hard-working lifters turned employees. We like to think of ourselves as a family here, so feel free to drop on by or drop us a line via the various communication mediums. Thanks for visiting our site and considering our products. We can't wait to hear from you! - The Kabuki Strength Team
