Incredibly welcoming and helpful.
I have always been pretty active and have tried everything from Bikram yoga to barre to HIIT to bikini prep. It was my boyfriend who got me into powerlifting, and I have been hooked ever since.
We joined SoCal Powerlifting at the end of January. Then, I could barely squat 150lbs, deadlift 190lbs, and bench the bar. And my form was awful. It was a little intimidating to walk into a gym where everyone was SO incredibly strong. However, they were also incredibly welcoming and helpful.
Coach Zack Bartell was patient with me, and we worked on my form, built some muscle, and increased my lifts by at least 50lbs (for each lift!) in just a few months. Zack is encouraging, personable, and obviously knows his stuff when it comes to getting strong."
