About Venice Barbell Club


  • Spread the good word about the benefits of barbell training
  • Support the local Olympic Lifting and CrossFit community
  • Become the preeminent barbell club in the Los Angeles area
  • Produce national and international caliber competitive weightlifters


  • We advocate an interweaving of increasing and decreasing volume and intensity, combined with a variety of exercises over time. This style of training will produce the best ongoing adaptation of the body.
  • The main goals in weightlifting and its movements are speed, strength, the joy of the challenge, and to feel good about oneself!

Our mission here at the Venice Barbell Club is to get you wherever you want to go. Let’s have fun along the way too! See you at the gym!
