I just wanted to thank you for inviting me out to Michigan Barbell a few week ago. I was shocked to see so many people that I already knew, Marc Tejero, Craig & Kristy Gallo, Mike Szudarek, Jeff Johnson. The people/lifters that I met the first Sunday I was there…after the work out, it seemed like I’d known them for years. I was really impressed with the number of young lifters there training their butts off, especially on the Squats, and deadlifts. The atmosphere is second to none at Michigan Barbell. Benching on Friday nights…can’t think of a better to place to be. Two competition benches, two monolifts, can’t believe I found a Gym that has two deadlift platforms, you know how I love that lift. It was nice meeting one of the owners Heather Barnes Spliter, what a nice lady. You can tell she loves that place. It was a pleasure meeting Brian Carroll. Brian is a real cool down to earth person. I enjoyed watching him train, and help out the lifters…the man really cares. I’m looking forward to competing at the Master Nat’s next year with you, and the Michigan Barbell Team. 2015 is going to be an awesome year for Michigan Barbell, and I’m looking forward to being a part of it. See you Friday night, get that leg healed up.
Take care, and God Bless,
Michigan Barbell and the amazing people who call it home, have changed my athletic life. I began solely as a CrossFit athlete. After five competitions in seven months and two top-five finishes, I knew an airtight strength program was the missing link. I am a lifter at heart, and while CrossFit is in my blood, the technical difficulty and mental focus required of Olympic weightlifting attracts me.
The coaches and trainers of Michigan Barbell are helping me take my Olympic lifting to the next level. Their knowledge and skill, supported by years of time and experience in the sport of weightlifting, are the best around. Because of them, I am on track to set a new state record next June. If you are an athlete of any level, or simply passionate about fitness and getting stronger, there is no other place you should be. The support at Michigan Barbell is second to none. We truly are a fitness family – all dedicated to pushing one another toward goals and greatness.

Michigan Barbell is the best gym in MI. You can train in olympic weightlifting or powerlifting and that’s rare. The people that train there are knowledgeable and friendly, and will help you reach your goals.
Wow! What a gym! Michigan Barbell/Total Fitness Center (MBB/TFC) is seriously an incredible place to train. Why is this gym so incredible? As a competitive powerlifter, it has the equipment I need to achieve my goals. Because of the top-of-the-line equipment that the owners have brought in, people travel far and wide to train at this facility…
Throughout my training session I may be lifting next to an accomplished Crossfit athlete or someone working on their Olympic lifts. The person next to me may be someone trying out powerlifting for the first time or someone that has been competing for 35 years. Everyone helps everyone at this gym. Whether looking for a spot, form or depth check there is always someone available to help…
I have trained at numerous gym in Michigan for over twenty five years. Although I have only trained at Michigan Barbell for a year, I have enjoyed the experience of what Michigan Barbell brings. Michigan Barbell has created a new element to training gyms. Your gym has complete access to all types of equipment, bodybuilding, Crossfit, and power lifting to name a few. Your staff has more knowledge than any other gym I have been to. They have helped me with all my training and have advised me of correct technique and ways to improve. I look forward to continue my training at Michigan Barbell.
