Classes for everyone
Whether you’ve never lifted weights before or are a seasoned athlete, we can help you safely perform your exercises and make progress. We’ve taught hundreds of people to squat, press and deadlift successfully.
Group sessions, 1-on-1 attention
Every individual’s work set is performed under the watchful eye of one of our experienced and encouraging coaches. Encouraging and supporting other lifters helps to keep everyone energized throughout the session.
Get fit, not hurt
We understand that most people can be intimidated by the idea of strength training. Our coaches will make sure every lifter achieves steady progress with an individualized pace. They will also make sure you perform your lifts safely, with proper form.
Our Intro to Barbells Class is a 1 hour introduction that teaches you all the basics of resistance training and how to safely perform the major barbell lifts. Trainees will be coached in real time in the Squat, Press, Bench Press and Deadlift by one of our experienced coaches.
Intro classes are $150 and students are welcome to join our group classes afterwards.
Members can attend group classes Monday-Saturday, offered both in the mornings and evenings. Our class sizes are limited to 7 people so that our members get personalized, one-on-one coaching for their work sets.
Memberships start at $175/mo.
Single visit passes are also available for those who have completed Introduction to Barbells.
Grant discovered Starting Strength in an effort to find a competitive edge for his Marines while they were deployed to Afghanistan in 2014. It worked. After returning home from deployment, he quickly gained a reputation for having the strongest group of Marines in the unit and was sought out for coaching on a regular basis.
Since then, Grant has programmed and coached hundreds of Marines to measurable results using the Starting Strength methodology.
Grant obtained the Starting Strength Coach Certification in April of 2016 and then opened The Strength Co. shortly after in early 2017.
Coach Jeff is a Brazilian jiu jitsu black belt and instructor at the renown Art of Jiu Jitsu Academy in Costa Mesa, CA. While looking for a way to become bigger and stronger to improve his jiu jitsu game, he found the book Starting Strength.
He loved barbell training from day one, and has never looked back. He has gained 40 lbs of body weight, vastly improved his strength, and has seen a significant carryover to his jiu jitsu game. Because of his background in coaching Brazilian jiu jitsu, Jeff picked up on the details of barbell training quickly and immediately started developing his coaching eye. He received his Starting Strength Coach Certification in the fall of 2019.
