Montreal Barbell is....


A GYM with two sides. One side is a friendly neighborhood gym where people come to train for health and physical well-being. The other side is also friendly and is a serious strength training gym that is quickly gaining world wide recognition for hosting world class Powerlifting Competitions and developing several World Ranked Powerlifters and Canadian Champions.

The members in our gym have two things in common: they are all nice, honest people who are willing to help you when you come in to train, and, they all achieve their goals very quickly. We are not crowded and even though we have 2.650 squat feet, we are more of a home style gym than a large commercial gym. You will not find mirrors on our walls, although we did get one recently for posing. People come to our gym to train and to achieve their goals.

And, we have competition experienced coaches and trainers ready to help you get started and become a champion. If you want to train for BODYBUILDING we have a Mr. Olympia Natural Body Building Champion and National Body Building Head Judge and certified trainer, Martin Cormier who will get you started on a real bodybuilding program

If you want STRENGTH and CONDITIONING, we have a certified Strength and Conditioning trainer for over 20 years. Steve Michelin has a background in training in Strength Sports, MMA conditioning training tailored for Grappling and Brazilian Jiujitsu. Has a background in stuntwork and has trained professional athletes, amateur athletes and celebrities.

We have cardio machines that are not used very much. We have plate-loaded machines and Cybex cable machines. We also have a free weight section with the most heavy duty, strong and safe equipment for powerlifting and strongman trainnig. We have a large outdoor parking lot for flipping tires and pulling the sled and soon pushing the prowler and walking the farmer walks.

Montreal Barbell is.... dedicated to Powerlifting, Strongman, Fitness and Bodybuilding athletes and to anyone who wants to get bigger, stronger and better at what they do. At Montreal Barbell, you will find all the equipment, training and support you need to become a world class athlete.
