Hamilton Barbell is the city’s premier Olympic weightlifting facility and an active member of the Ontario Weightlifting Association (as well as the first OWA affiliate in the city). Our main goal is to spread the sport of weightlifting across the region.

Weightlifting is the world’s most explosive sport, but it’s movements can also be applied to training for other sports to increase athletic performance.

Training weightlifting has benefits for any sport and for any athlete, male or female, adult or youth including strength gains, explosive power, flexibility/mobility, fat loss, physique development and mental focus.

Hamilton Barbell is equipped with olympic bars, platforms and kilo plates (that you’re allowed to drop)!

We are located at 816 King Street West, Hamilton Ontario and we meet weekdays from 5pm to 8pm.

We are also proud to be #HamOntStrong.
