Train With An Experienced Barbell Coach In Your Home Gym
So you’ve decided that you need to be stronger. Maybe you read a doctor’s article reviewing the many benefits of strength training for health and well-being. Maybe you noticed a few aches and pains that seem to be getting worse and are looking for solutions. Maybe you just want to challenge yourself throughout the upcoming year.
The best way to develop strength is by performing the major barbell lifts – squatting, deadlifting, pressing and bench pressing. Women and men of all ages can learn to do these lifts with the guidance of an experienced coach.
When possible, we always recommend that a person learn how to perform these lifts alongside a qualified barbell coach. We also understand that sometimes, no coaches live close by. That’s where live online coaching comes in.
How Our Online Coaching Is Different
The Strength Co. currently operates two strength training gyms in California and our coaches have helped hundreds of people get stronger over the years. We take this experience with us directly into your gym.
Many Online Coaching programs have lifters upload videos of their workouts for a coach to review later. Because we know that newer lifters need constant feedback to lift with proper form, we prefer to coach remotely over live video calls.
During live sessions, our coaches are with you throughout your workout and make sure that you get better with each repetition. We can actively discuss technique, recovery and diet strategies and develop programming for your next workout.
Whatever your goals are from learning to lift, we can help you achieve them.
It Starts With Our Introduction To Barbells
In our online Intro to Barbell Training we will teach you everything you need to get started with strength training. During your one hour class we will teach:
- General principles of strength training. We will teach you how your body adapts to the exercises and what to expect over the next few months of strength training.
- How to Deadlift, Squat, Press and Bench Press. We will figure out the how much you should start lifting with proper form. You will also know how much weight you will add the next time you train.
- How to recover from lifting. We will advise you on much you should rest between lifting days and how much to eat for proper recovery.
- Answer any other questions you have. Have a specific sport you are training for? Injuries you are concerned about? Maybe you have more specific diet questions. We are here for you.
All you have to do is grab a tripod (or two), set up your cell phone or tablet (or both), and then log on to our live video software and meet your coach. We will call you after your purchase to schedule a time for your 1 hour session and to make sure you have everything you need.
That’s it. It’s that simple – you can have an experienced barbell coach guide you through the major barbell lifts wherever you train.

You Then Join Our Online Classes
After your Intro Class, you can continue getting stronger a few times a week with one of our coaches and a group of like-minded lifters. We will continue to train you to deadlift, bench press, overhead press, and squat. Classes are 1 hour sessions on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
Workout two or three times a week with us for $275 and $325, respectively. We offer multiple classes a day. View out our class schedule below:
What do I need to get started?
Reliable internet connection for your training area.
Camera Device or two for recording : Smartphones and tablets are preferred . A laptop or webcam can be used as a secondary camera if available. Your device will need to run Zoom software/app (most do). Set-up is free and easy.
Tripod for your device: A sturdy and adjustable tripod will be crucial for precise filming angles.
Adequate Space : You will need enough space to safely perform each lift and enough distance for the camera to provide your coach with a full view: Your entire body and barbell within the frame during all parts of the moment. We have clients that lift in garages, living rooms , backyards, etc.
Speaker/ Headphones : Device speaker or wireless earbuds/headphones so you can clearly hear your coach while you are lifting. Your device’s microphone and speaker should work fine in a quiet environment. Consider using earbuds/headphones if excessive background noise is present.
Training Equipment: A barbell, weights and some squat stands or power rack.
How do I set up my cameras and tripods?
After your purchase, we will send you our video conferencing starter guide which explains exactly how to set up your lifting area – where to put your tripod , what angle, headphones or speakers etc…
I’m not tech savvy, will I be able to set everything up?
Our starter kit makes it so simple that even your grandmother could do it. Seriously. We train grandmothers from all over the world online.
What if I’m overweight? Untrained? An elite athlete? Male? Female? Young? Old?
We have trained hundreds of young, old, sedentary, overweight, underweight, untrained, and elite athletes to become stronger both in person and online. We will answer all your questions during your 15 minute intro call to make sure you are confident and ready to get started.
Are these private sessions? What about group classes ?
Your Intro session will be a private session with you and a coach. We also offer Live group training where you will receive personalized coaching within a shared virtual environment with other lifters. After you first session your coach can help you determine which future options would work best for you. Some lifters might need some more personalized attention prior to joining our group classes.
