Foundations of Barbell Training

Foundations of Barbell Training


If you’re currently training in the deadlift, back squat/front squat, or bench press –or– you’re curious about training with a barbell but have no experience, we have the perfect program for you.


Performance Health & Fitness now offers a barbell-specific training group on Tuesday mornings from 7:30-8:30am. This program is led by Certified Personal Trainer, Mitchell Schumacher and is offered month-to-month for just $149.00 (including Basic Membership).


Participants will learn how to improve their lifting technique, learn about the effectiveness and importance of accessory movements, and learn how to correct their individual weaknesses. Not only will participants receive weekly personal critiques from a certified personal trainer, they will also receive a full written lifting program that will provide guidance and support for 2 additional days of training (self-paced without a trainer).


This program is limited to 12 participants to ensure an enjoyable group experience but receive one-on-one attention.


train smarter and harder
day in and day out

Since joining Performance, I have made huge gains. The process of recovering from knee surgery has been much easier because of the expertise of the Performance staff in helping me get back to full strength. I would recommend this gym to anyone.*

Under the guidance of trainers, I have been able to decrease my 5K time from 28 minutes to under 20 minutes in just 2 years.  I have also lost 30 pounds while increasing strength, endurance and power.*

Training over the last few years at Performance has been the best health decision I have ever made.  Leslie, my current trainer, keeps me on track to stay fit and strong, makes our sessions interesting and challenging, and is always positive, even when I have setbacks.*

“I am a competitive cyclist and have been in personal training at Performance for 6 years. The best part about the trainers is that they know our medical histories very well.  Leslie is great at modifying a training session specifically to each individual person’s limitations so as to avoid injury.”*

“I’m retired and enjoy a full, active life. This is due, in no small part, to the time I spend at Performance. The group classes provide a great workout and lots of variety. Plus, a fun way to meet new friends!”*
