Heavy Lifting in North Carolina

Post by guest » Tue Apr 04, 2006 5:24 pm

I will be relocating to the Raleigh/Durham area this summer and was wondering if any one knew of gyms in the area that were hardcore gyms where OL and powerlifting would be welcome. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.

Hi. Well, I've never gone into the club, I live about 4 hours northeast (Virginia Beach, Va) but I do know they relish O lifting, PL, and all other variations of sports training. Go to
They have links to other heavy gyms where you have platforms/chalk, etc Another source of gyms with OL would be usaw.org They have good links to these types of gyms.
Good luck finding a good one.

Be careful about anyplace with the words "health" or "fitness" in the title. Also places that call themselves a "gym" are usually a better bet than places that call themselves a "fitness center" or "health club."
