Outdoor Lifting

We’re back!

Due to Covid-19, we’ve opened up a new outdoor training facility. Located in a repurposed auto repair shop in El Cerrito, we’ve affectionately named it Bay Strength Body Shop.

Training stations are socially distanced, placed at least 6 feet apart. Athletes and coaches wear masks.

We train outdoors. This lowers the risks of transmission of Covid-19, and it means we can be open and in compliance with public health orders.

Over the next few weeks we will be completing installation of lifting platforms. If you are interested in joining our small group training classes, please contact us via the below form. Space is limited at the moment but will open up as we complete installation of remaining outdoor lifting platforms.

Please note that all lifters entering group classes must first take the Learn to Lift intro sessions.

What People Are Saying

I came to Katherine as a brand new lifter looking to improve my overall fitness in preparation for a 2,500 mile off-road motorcycle race.

She’s super encouraging, and truly excited about lifting! I really appreciate her ability to demystify entire strength training experience–from how the mechanics of individual lifts work to gym culture.

I’m amazed at how I’ve not only gotten significantly stronger in the few months I’ve been working with her, but my stamina has improved dramatically as well. I am so thrilled to have her in my corner!

Gwyn is an awesome coach: kind and supportive, but also rigorous about correct form. She is knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and has a plan in mind for both coaching sessions and the ones on my own. I look forward to going to the gym – and cannot believe I’m saying that! I wish I had known about weight-lifting years ago. I never thought it applied to someone like me. So wrong. Just doing things around the house is easier. Lifting airplane luggage into the overhead compartment – magically lighter. General body wellbeing better. Thanks, Gwyn!
Helen

I drove just shy of 100 miles to meet Jeremy for a personal training session. It was well worth the time and money. He was able to notice and correct my form flaws, and provide correction in a way that helped immediately.

Jeremy is very professional, he knows his craft and is capable of teaching in a way that even I could grasp. He is personable, sincere and really wants to make you better. He never once made me feel rushed for time, he wanted me to leave with the confidence that I knew the lifts properly.
