Chris Consalvo and Jamael Jones, who both broke statewide weightlifting records. Center, Howard Tomlin broke the world record for the Master's 275 pound division for lifters ages 40- to 44-years-old. He lifted 540 pounds.

There are world records being broken in the Holly City.

Look no farther than the basement at the Holly City Family Center.

During a Paulsboro weightlifting event through the International Powerlifitng Association, Howard Tomlin, Chris Consalvo, Jamael Jones, all Millville men, broke one world record and two New Jersey state records respectively.

Tomlin, who broke the Master’s Division 40-44 years-old at 275 pounds of body weight, broke the world record for his division by bench pressing 540 pounds of steel.


“I never expected to be competing for a world record,” Tomlin said. “I trained for three months for the actual match itself. Breaking the world record was an added bonus.”

As for using bare muscle, he was part of a “raw” category, meaning the weightlifter wears no supportive material or shirts. This means all of the iron plates are dead weight attached to a 45 pound metal bar.

Tomlin was only 15 pounds shy of the ultimate world record for his division (meaning not classified by age). The record is 555 pounds currently held by a 30-year-old man.

Tomlin, a maintenance supervisor at Cumberland Dairy by day, would be going onto the world championship, but instead is celebrating his 25th wedding anniversary on a tropical vacation.

“We’ve been planning our anniversary for two years now,” Tomlin said. “It’s more important.”

For his accomplishment, Tomlin will be featured in the next edition of the Guinness Book of World Records.

Also breaking records on a state level were Chris Consalvo, 34, and Jamael Jones, 27.

Consalvo lifted broke the Sub-Pro Master Class (non-raw) in the 275 pound (body weight) category by lifting 430 pounds.

He said it feels good to know he broke such a difficult record.

“I actually had no idea after the lift that I had broken it,” Consalvo said.

It wasn’t until Consalvo went home after the Paulsboro match that he received a phone call from a fellow weightlifting buddy who gave him the good news.

“I’ve been training for about 6 years,” Consalvo said. “The goal is to break the records, but you can only hope to come close to it. Actually breaking it is incredible.”

Consalvo has a 16-year-old daughter named Magdalia and a 14-year-old son Trey.

Trey joins his father occasionally in weightlifting and they also play sports together. His daughter, however, is more into shopping.

“I don’t push them to do what I do,” Consalvo said. “I let them be themselves.”

Jones, the youngest of the three to break a record, lifted 425 pounds in the raw Open Division at 198 pounds in body weight.

Like Consalvo, Jones didn’t know he was breaking a world record when he lifted his 425.

“I lifted 425 and knew it was a high amount to lift,” Jones said. “But it wasn’t until I was looking through a form that had records on it that I realized I’d beat it.”

The previous state record for his division was 385 pounds lifted.

“I plan to continue with lifting and move up to the next division and class,” Jones said.

Andrea Vanaman, the fitness director at Holly City Family Center, said she was incredibly proud of the three men.
