Our gym is a private training facility. There are no open memberships; the gym is only for use by Blue Collar Barbell team members and Shawna Mendelson’s personal training clients.

Our gym is a dedicated strength training facility. Inside these walls you’ll find world-class coaching, the right tools and equipment for serious lifters, a group of like-minded and hard-working people, and an environment of support and camaraderie that you would never find in a commercial gym. The bottom line is that our gym is a gym FOR lifters, BY lifters!
