Our CrossFit programming is comprised of constantly varied, functional movements. We squat, run, jump, climb, lift and throw — moving your body the way it’s meant to be moved.

These workouts are for everyone. Whether you’re a novice or an experienced athlete, our coaches are passionate about helping you get better. We’ll advise you on how to scale the load and intensity each day, and we consistently coach and re-coach proper technique in order to improve your overall performance.

After you’ve mastered the mechanics, we encourage these movements to be performed at high intensity, so that you build strength and conditioning without having to spend hours in the gym.

Come check us out and discover how being fit and healthy can improve all areas of life.

Olympic Weightlifting and Barbell Club

Lion’s Roar Barbell Club is a small but mighty group of competitive weightlifters. One of the few USAW clubs in the upstate, we have members from a wide variety of backgrounds. We’re a community dedicated to perfecting our technique and getting stronger, together.

Our team lifts during open gym times and during the four classes dedicated to weightlifting each week. We’re led by head coach James Page, who holds a USAW Level 2 certification and has years of enthusiastic, first-hand experience with the sport. He specializes in teaching people to move the barbell safely and efficiently by personalizing his cues based on an individual lifter’s needs, abilities and skill.

Lion’s Roar offers a weightlifting membership that includes programming with clear progressions, individualized accessory work and refined technique work. This is offered as an add-on for Crossfit members, or as a separate membership for those interested only in lifting.

Members have access to an array of quality equipment, including three dedicated platforms, Eleiko competition bars, Pendlay training plates and a set of jerk blocks. We also strive to offer educational experiences by hosting seminars and in-house competitions.

Whether you are a novice lifter, a seasoned competitor or a CrossFit athlete looking to improve your barbell skills, we would love for you to join us!

Personal Training

Individualized attention, whether you want to master a specific skill, lose weight, build strength or simply prefer one-on-one to the group classes.

Our coaches have helped train athletes to compete in Ironman competitions, half marathons, CrossFit, powerlifting and weightlifting competitions. We’ve also helped clients jumpstart their fitness journey in a safe and unintimidating environment, until they were ready and comfortable to join our group classes.

Personal training includes custom programming specific to your particular weaknesses and goals, and one-on-one coaching to teach you correct mechanics, encourage the right amount of intensity and provide valuable feedback throughout your entire workout. Personal training clients can also include nutrition support.
