First13 Barbell Club


First13 Barbell Club is a included in the SYR CrossFit Unlimited membership or a separate membership on its own with members who want to improve their Olympic lifting skills and strength training. This is NOT A CROSSFIT CLASS. Barbell club allows members to focus on Power Lifting or Olympic Lifting outside normal class times. OLY, as it is commonly referred to, meets Tuesday and Thursday nights at 6:00 p.m and Sunday morning at 9:00 AM. In addition to the above class times, the First13 Barbell Club is open anytime First13 Athletics is open and you can train at any time. This addition to the First13 family of classes is perfect for beginners as well as advanced athletes.

Barbell Club is ran by Mike Matyascik who is USAW certified level 2 as well as a certified Sports Performance Coach. Along with Coach Mike we have 5 other USAW Coaches on staff that are always available to help. Mike has coached everyone from beginner junior and masters athletes to national and international level competitors.

Separate club fees apply and are not included in monthly membership dues (unless you are an unlimited member). If you are interested in Barbell Club, you may inquire by emailing Rob at
