Christopher Della Fave

Professional, world ranked Multiply powerlifter. Owner, Bergen County Barbell

Chris is a lifelong Bergen County resident. He was an all state athlete at St. Joseph Regional HS and later went on to play Division 1AA football at Lasalle University and the University of Rhode Island. Once his football career was over, his passion for powerlifting grew, so much in fact, that he jumped on the opportunity to start Bergen County Barbell.

Chris has been competing on the National/international scale since 2010. He has competed raw and multiply with best raw lifts of 610/495/775 and multiply lifts of 1055/765/855. He has elite totals in three weight classes - 220, 242 and 275 and has various records in different weight classes over different federations, but currently has his sights set on a much bigger goal.

Chris has trained a variety of lifters over the life of BCB from novice to pro level lifters and all are cared for and handled individually to ensure he gets the most of out of all his athletes.
