Our gym is a private training facility. There are no open memberships; the gym is only used for Blue Collar Barbell team training, and Private Personal Training by Shawna Mendelson and Jay Curry. Click here to learn more about personal training with Shawna!

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!
