A little about me.
I’m in my early 50’s and I have been on the powerlifting scene for about 30 years now.
I specialize in the bench press
I have also struggled with my weight ballooning up to 400 lbs 3X in my life.
Each time I have regrouped and lost 100 plus pounds.
I am also a recovering alcoholic (I have been sober since 2014)
Powerlifting and Bodybuilding have been the things that have gotten me through some of the darkest times in my life.
I always say, my life has been repeatedly saved by the BARBELL!
My current focus is on getting leaner and more jacked to get ready for my first bodybuilding show ever (in my fifties)
My purpose with Iron Hos Gear is to inspire men and women and drive home the fact that we can achieve amazing things no matter how old we are - where we come from - or what we have in our lives at the moment.
Just get to a Barbell !
Our Mission Statement is
Struggle - Persevere - Succeed - Inspire
I want Iron Hos Gear to help inspire and motivate my
brothers and sisters in Iron to keep working on themselves.
Become the very best version of themselves
Get Stronger Mentally and Physically
On the Platform
In the Gym

About Curd Hos
I have been competing in the Bench press for over 30 years.
How Iron Hos Gear began...
Finding it hard to get great wraps and belts I started looking into having our own made.
I wanted strong and resilient products that would last.
I also saw that ordering from the USA cost lots more in Duties, Exchange rates and delays of 3-6 weeks.
I decided to do something about that and 6 years ago Hostyle Gear was born
Our wraps, belts and accessories are tried and true, day in and day under the stress of 1000's of hours of workouts.
There are built to perform and last.
I take take my training, my clients training and my accessories very , very seriously. Shouldn't you?
All our products ship from Canada and are in Canadian funds.
Our powerlifting team at Iron Hos competes at many meets in eastern Canada and you will often see our Iron Hos Gear booth at many strength events.
I love lifting, competing and coaching men and women to do the same.
Let me know if I can help you in any way
