Barbell Club

How to get strong and fast as hell!

The sport of Olympic Weightlifting in America has seen a major resurgence from CrossFit. USAW has grown immensely and each year more and more CrossFitters make their way onto the National Lifting stage. Friendship has sent two athletes to the National Stage out of their program, and have broken multiple Ohio and US records in the process.

The Barbell Club at Friendship is a group that is dedicated to the technique, strength and power development brought through resistance and explosive training. You must have a base of knowledge of the lifts before joining, so this is not for brand-new beginners, however working with a coach 1-on-1 on the lifts will get you up to speed very quickly.

The programming is designed by Jeff Binek (USAW Sports Performance coach and Club owner) and carried out through Liz Van Winkle and Jeff Binek as coaches.

Cost: FCF-Unlimited: $39/month

Non-FCF Athletes: $79/month
