Worthington Barbell Club

Worthington barbell club

The Worthington Barbell Club is organized and supported by the Worthington Area YMCA. The Club Coach is Cory Greenway, a USAW and CSCS certified coach. Our focus is on training the Olympic Lifts, the "Big 3" and variations of barbell exercises. No prior experience necessary to join us; you just need an interest in bettering yourself and using weightlifting and powerlifting as a way to find strength. A club team environment allows members to find others with similar strength/experience and receive advise from those more skilled. 

Club members do not need to be affiliated with the YMCA, but in order to train there they must be a member or pay a day fee to enter. Club members who do not belong to the YMCA can still participate in programs, training sessions, and created workouts by contacting Coach Greenway. 

Mock trial meets for Olympic Lifting and Powerlifting are held a couple of times throughout the year as well as intermittent weekend technique training sessions.
