What People Are Saying

"I'm a former collegiate athlete who has spent decades pushing my physical limits. Post college, I joined Equinox and lost most of my strength and all of the enjoyment that comes with working out in a community setting. Meeting Jaclyn, Chris and Warhorse Barbell completely changed all of that. Joining their gym was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I'm in the best shape of my life and genuinely look forward to my time with everyone there. If you care about feeling and looking great there is nowhere better than Warhorse.

Tim Bemer

"I have absolutely loved being a member at Warhorse. Every time I’ve walked into the gym, I’m guaranteed two things:

1) I’m going to be challenged and
2) I’ll learn something new.
I’ve been a member of several gyms over the years, and the attention to form at Warhorse is unparalleled. Not only have I not had a single injury the entire time I’ve been a member, but adjustments to my form have reduced existing muscle strain while I’ve continued to progress in my lifts. As I’m leaving Philly, Warhorse will be one of the places I miss most because of the community and constant motivation that the entire team provides. Thanks to the Warhorse team, it’s been so fun and I’m astounded at how much stronger I’ve become."
Monica Schroeder

I can't say enough good things about Warhorse Barbell Club! I have been lifting on and off over the years but have found it hard to be consistent since COVID and moving to a new city. Immediately after joining Warhorse, I instantly felt the passion that I used to have for lifting come back and have found an amazing community here!

The coaches at Warhorse are all so knowledgable and really care about each member and helping them achieve their goals. They are very welcoming to people of all experience levels and work hard to provide a supportive space for everyone. Since joining this gym two months ago, I have decided to sign up for my first powerlifting meet, something I have wanted to do forever but never felt confident enough to do until now!

Between the programming, the people, and the results, I find myself counting down the days between each workout! Whether you are interested in powerlifting or general fitness, this gym is the place to do it.

"There are almost no words to describe the positive impact this place and it’s people have had on my life. With minimal strength training experience, I came in for my evaluation and first class feeling very intimidated and not up to the challenge of a barbell club. I could never have imagined the welcoming atmosphere and companionship I would build there. I’m now stronger and more confident than I’ve ever been, and I’m still progressing.

Owners Jaclyn and Chris are overall amazing humans: down to earth, friendly, and knowledgeable. I could never have gotten to the place that I am in my journey without the unwavering support, encouragement, and overall great coaching of Chris, Jaclyn, and the rest of the crew.
