Gulf Coast Barbell is looking to add a few more lifters to our gym/team.

Gulf Coast Barbell is designed for powerlifting and run by powerlifters.

We have a mono, forza bench, deadlift platform, various barbells, reverse hyper, dumbbells, plenty of plates, and just about anything else you need to get strong.

Please contact us by email if you are interested.

That is where I train, well I train deadlifts and squats there. I compete in strongman, so I do my overhead pressing in my garage with my axle, log, etc.

I love that place, it's a bit of a hike but I go to school in Bradenton, so it isn't too bad. Only been going there for about 3 weeks now(just moved back to the area) I train in the mornings though, so I seem to miss when the big(big as in big totals) guys and girls are training.

My friend Ed trains at Gulf Coast barbell. He is a very good teacher, especially as far as form and technique and for anyone new to geared lifting. I trained with him for over a year in Lakeland. And they have a nice private warehouse setup with everything for powerlifting in Fort Myers. I have also met a few other lifters from there at meets, and they have some decent people. You should check this place out if you are in the area.

Ft. Myers is a nice place. I was on vacation there a few years ago, and visited that World Gym. I think I remember a nice reverse hyper in there, but seeing that gym and not having a key with no one in it was pure torture.

Best of luck guys.
