Visiting nationally ranked Olympic Weightlifting or Powerlifting competitor?

If you’re following specific programming, you may do your own thing during our Lab Hour or Open Gym sessions. If you have a longer program to complete or can’t make it at those times, please contact us via e-mail at, and we’ll try to work something out for you.

Note that by “competitor,” we mean an experienced, highly competent athlete who knows how to train safely. We reserve the right to ask you to stop training if you appear to be doing something stupid and/or dangerous.

No reservation is required, just show up about 10 minutes early to sign a waiver.

Please note that we reserve the right to deny entry to any visitor who we feel does not have the requisite experience and/or knowledge base to participate safely with minimal disruption in any class!
