"The coaching staff is caring and professional. The size of the gym, coupled with the high volume of regular amateur and professional lifters, really impressed me. Everyone is genuinely friendly and doesn't carry the ego and aura you might expect from a group of hardcore lifters. The new and the injured are made to feel welcome, and everyone gets their own custom workout program designed around their specific and particular goals and limitations. It's cheaper than a CrossFit gym, and it's multidisciplinary. I would recommend this gym to anyone wanting to take the next step in their strength journey." - Ahmad E.

"I have mostly been doing CrossFit with periods of pure weightlifting for the past couple of years. I joined this weightlifting club a couple of months ago with my boyfriend and I can truly say that this gym has been such a great experience so far. The first time we lifted there was a little nerve-racking since it was a new gym and everyone looked so much stronger than me! But everyone cheered us on as we did our lifts and encouraged me even though we had just met! The coaches there are super easy to get a long with and definitely have a deep understanding of each lift.
The program itself is pretty challenging and I definitely feel like I'm getting stronger already. I look forward to improving my technique and getting stronger from here on out!

"If you are looking to learn how to properly perform Olympic lifts... you MUST come into this gym" - Luke T.

"Great gym for weightlifters. Met these guys in 2016 when they held an awesome meet. Staff knows what their doing, and coaching is fantastic. I knew when I moved to OC that I would join their gym! " - Eric P. 

"I was just a recent college grad who wanted to get into weightlifting and had no idea how the process worked. I called some big local weightlifting teams around Southern California and SoCal Weightlifting Club was the only one who called me back and not only gave me the information I needed, but graciously accepted me onto the team. Now I am headed to a U25 National Meet thanks to their help! And don't sweat it if you can't make it out there. They have a killer online program that allows me to train remotely from Riverside. I film all my lifts and send them to Chris and get immediate feedback. If you want to get stronger with a great group of people, this is your gym." - Matt O.
