Small group barbell training for women and men, tailored to your level.
You’re Stronger Than You Think
Strength lays the groundwork for athletic performance, health, and quality of life for men and women alike. As part of our Starting Strength program, you’ll surprise yourself with just how strong you truly are.
Starting Strength at WFC
This isn’t your average weight lifting program. Starting Strength is a time-tested approach to the classic barbell training method that leverages basic movement patterns to work your entire body. Over time, as the barbell load increases little by little, you will feel your whole body grow stronger. Meanwhile, you can grow healthier, happier, and more confident, both in the gym and outside.
The National Starting Strength Program
Starting Strength is a nationally recognized training system designed to help you grow stronger over time. It was developed by Starting Strength founder, Mark Rippetoe. The Woodmere Fitness Club is an affiliate of the nationally recognized program. Want to participate? See our upcoming camps, competitions, seminars and events.

“Not only have I strengthened my back and core (always a work in progress) so I don’t have anymore pain in my lower back, but I always look forward to the people I lift with and that keeps me coming back for more!” — Melinda S.
