What Is it?

There aren't many STRENGTH FIRST training groups in Burlington.  Until now!  The Barbell Basics Course is a 30 day intro to what we do to build and maintain our Strength Athletes.  The main pillars we will focus on are Training, Recovery, and Diet with accessories such as Supplementation and Stress management.


We are a small, dedicated group of both Elite Level Powerlifters as well as Intermediate everyday folks that have found that the key to maintaining our health is through the rewards of REAL Strength Training.  The Head Coach is Provincial and National Powerlifting Champion Travis Graham, the owner of Functional Strength Training Centre.


Our program is designed for all abilities and we love beginners! You do not need to come with any experience in the gym, just be ready to work hard!  Advanced lifters will join us in the advanced group.

Fully commit to the entire length of the program. There will be difficult workouts and challenges. We want participants who will see it through to the end!

Be disciplined enough to apply our nutrition plan. The program does not work without your consistency and efforts. You WILL see results as long as you follow the plan.

This challenge won't be solely about losing weight and gaining muscle, although that DOES happen.  It's about mastering basic technique for beginners, and using advanced methods for advanced lifters.  

Your results will be not be measured soley by strength gains.  Improvement of lifting technique is our first priority, however, you WILL get stronger when you do!

Have respect for your fellow trainees, coaches, and the rules of the gym and come to each training session with a positive attitude. 

Meet your coach
