For people looking to gain strength or size, Shanghai Barbell Club will be officially launching in the a few weeks time. For starters from next week we will be adding two more classes to the ever growing timetable!

Power Lifting/Mass Monster classes

Tuesday 8:00pm

Friday 7:00pm

Sat 4:00pm

Good new for CrossFitters is your membership will also get you into the Barbell Club. If CrossFit is not your thing you can just sign up separately. Don’t be expecting cardio workouts or fancy name WODs, just good ol’ fashioned heavy lifting!

We will also like to welcome your host, new coach American Clayton Stewart an avid powerlifting and strong man competitor. He has a few titles under his belt along  with a 700+ pound deadlift!
