We pride ourselves in helping to grow the sport of Powerlifting in Tucson and Southern Arizona. Prior to us holding our first meet in 2014, meets were hard to come by in Tucson. Since 2014 we have hosted close to 20 powerlifting meets in at our gym, and we have 3 USPA competitions on the books for 2020!

The Tucson Barbell Club is a branch of Tucson Strength that offers specialized instruction in Powerlifting. Whether you want to compete in the barbell sports or just take your overall strength to a greater level we offer professional coaching. You don’t have to be the biggest or the strongest to join, but you must have a passion to lift iron and train hard. Each of our programs offer professional coaching with a highly qualified staff.

We have coach beginners to those that have qualified for the national championships.


You don’t have to lift a ton of weight to be a part of our team, but you must have appropriate mobility and strength to safely execute the powerlifts and be coachable. If you have never lifted weights before we may have some other programs that would be a better fit. We are happy to meet with you for a free consultation to help you set a plan.

Strength comes from incremental gains over a long period of time. If you are looking to put weight on the bar at the detriment of your health and risk injury, we aren’t your club. We will design the appropriate program and make sure you are on track to hit your goals. As with anything, you must be consistent in your training and follow the program(I think we said that before)


Before you start Tucson Barbell Club you will do an evaluation with one of our coaches. We will schedule 2- 1on1 Coaching sessions to do a movement/mobility assessment as well work with you on the technique of the big 3 lifts. You will be given a program and you are expected to lift on only Tucson Barbell Club approved programs. Each lifter is required to keep a journal and log their training each week. These journals are the guide to make sure we are progressing you correctly.


The main programming with modifications is included with with your membership dues.

We do charge a small coaching fee for meet prep, and meet day coaching. If you choose to compete as a part of Tucson Barbell Club we will guide you step by step along the way to make sure you are prepared for meet day, including the entire day of the meet.
