Barbarian Barbell is a non-profit organization that started with the belief that sport, in general, and weightlifting, in particular, can make a significant impact in the lives of its participants.
The popularity of weightlifting has grown exponentially in the last decade, yet its accessibility is lacking in communities such as those found in the San Fernando Valley. Because weightlifting requires a strong level of commitment to master, members of our community, including our youth, will benefit substantially from participation in the sport.
We proudly continue a tradition of high-level weightlifting in a fun, disciplined and supportive environment from Youth through Masters-level athletes looking to develop physical strength and confidence.
Our club is a developing but competitive team and has qualified and medaled athletes to USA Weightlifting's Youth Nationals, Junior Nationals, University Nationals, Senior Nationals, American Open Series, American Open Finals, University World Championships, Various Senior International Meets, Master's Nationals, and Master's World Championships!
Our facility is a 2020 USA Weightlifting Community Development Training Site. We have 10 training platforms and 2 dedicated jerk stations.

Advanced reservation required for all classes. All athletes must first be evaluated to confirm a requisite level of technical proficiency in the snatch and clean & jerk prior to attending Small Group Training or Open Gym. If you are new to weightlifting, please sign up for our Weightlifting Fundamentals membership.
