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.

Expertise programming, comradery among peers, and a welcoming atmosphere. Warhorse 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.

I joined Warhorse with my boyfriend in September during COVID as a way to get out of the house. The two of us had never belonged to a gym and never worked out regularly outside of high school sports. I was often intimated by gym culture and had a hard time committing to a workout routine. After my first session with the owner, Chris, all of my preconceived notions were squashed.

My boyfriend and I were welcomed the moment we walked into the gym and we quickly found our place as part of the Warhorse community. The strength training program provided a platform for growth and flexibility that helped me to develop a routine that worked with my schedule. Warhorse is the gym for people of all strength levels who are looking to prioritize their health. Working out is now a priority of mine, and that is 100% due to the trainers and community at Warhorse. I cannot say enough good things about this gym and the people who work here. if you are looking for a place to get started or improve, Warhorse is the place for you. I have since left Philadelphia, and Warhorse is the thing I will miss the most.

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.

Warhorse Barbell Club is unquestionably the top training establishment in the greater Philadelphia region. The facility is top-notch, kept very clean, there are a plethora of fitness options to choose from and Warhorse has an abundance of up-to-date, modern training equipment which is essential to the development of its members.

The one factor that separates Warhorse from the big box, cookie-cutter fad fitness gyms is a strong sense of COMMUNITY. Every member that walks through the door is treated like family by co-owners Jaclyn and Chris. Every member that is a part of the Warhorse community is respectful and welcoming no matter your race, gender, age, sexual orientation etc... I can’t say that for other gyms in the area. And every member that trains at the Warhorse works hard every day - be prepared to bring the noise during every training session.
