The programming is great, regardless of your goals.

No matter what you think you are capable of Warhorse can help get you there, and beyond."
"The owners (Chris and Jaclyn) are awesome and really make the gym comfortable for all members. This is the starting point for everything great with War Horse. There is no stress signing up for classes or fretting over what the workout will be (They let you know beforehand!). There is a philosophy behind the training and they take it serious. Chris and Jaclyn attend the latest seminars in fitness and training and bring that detail back into the programming."
"I am not exaggerating when I say that this gym changed my life. And I am also not exaggerating when I never thought in a million years that a gym could do that. In the year and a half that I've been a member at War Horse, I learned how to turn my self-doubts into motivation, how to get to the gym consistently without considering it a chore, how to get physically strong without risking injury, and how to push myself past all the limits I previously set for myself. Chris, Jaclyn and all the coaches at War Horse not only offer their expertise in training but also pay incredible attention to detail and the well-being of every War Horse member. They emphasize having a balance between work, life and training and are constantly reminding us to get enough sleep. They don't promote easy fixes or bogus workouts that will finally get rid of your "problem areas." Instead, they provide the knowledge, support and space for members to work hard and get strong. If all that's not enough, the gym is always clean, has tons of great equipment and two dogs that work behind the front desk, and in general is a great place to hang out. In conclusion, War Horse Barbell Club gets 10 stars out of 5 in my book."
"Expertise programming, comradery among peers, and a welcoming atmosphere. War Horse has perfected this formula which is why I - and many others - keep coming back. Chris, Jaclyn, and the staff at War Horse have truly separated themselves from the mundane, uneducated, apathetic representation of what most "commercial gyms" have suddenly become. They take the time to work with each individual to provide appropriate programming in a motivating environment. Whether you're looking to drop a couple pounds or deadlift 2x your bodyweight (or 2.5x, thanks Chris!), War Horse is absolutely the place to check out if you're in the Philly area."
