Tucson Barbell Club at Evolution



Tucson Barbell Club at Evolution

The Tucson Barbell Club is a branch of Evolution Fitness that offers specialized instruction in Powerlifting and Strength & Conditioning. Whether you want to compete in the barbell sports or just take your overall strength to a greater level, our programs are for you. 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.  Certain prerequisites apply. Basic barbell movements are learned first, then technique is refined. Lifters are eventually transitioned into a personalized program geared towards their individualized goals. For those that are not physically ready for Tucson Barbell Club Programs, we encourage you to first take many of our other programs such as our kettlebell and flexibility and mobility classes to learn the fundamentals of movement and strength.
