In January 2011, after years of being kicked out of commercial gyms, a group of like-minded iron renegades came together to form 22nd Street Barbell. Founded on old school powerlifting principles, the team went underground (literally) to grind out heavy rep after heavy rep in a training facility proudly referred to as “The Dungeon”.

The atmosphere of 22nd Street is a direct rebellion against weight rooms lined with mirrors where people perform bicep curls as Adult Contemporary radio plays over the sound system. 22nd Street Barbell is not your mother’s “health club”.

We are a family forged in iron, a team of people driven by a singular goal…to get as strong as humanly possible. So no matter what your level of strength, from beginner to elite, if you want to get stronger, if you want to see results, if you want to pump some f*@$@%^ iron, come check us out.

This is madness?!?! No.
This. Is. 22nd Street
