Garage Gyms in MASS

Anyone have a hardcore setup near the worcester area willing to let a teen join? Im very serious about lifting looking to start competing and getting my numbers up, would be great to train with someone on the same page and get proper form down as well let me know

Cressey Performance?

Boston and Worcester, not exactly the closest of cities. Try Bay State Gym, http://www.baystategym.com/ I know two guys that train there, good stuff.

Eric Cressey is in Hudson, MA, which is actually closer to Worcester than Boston, but it’s still probably 20 minutes or so from Worcester.

I have also heard good things about Bay State Gym in Worcester.

We see a lot of guys your age of all different goals at our place; drop us an email at cresseyperformance@gmail.com if interested.

Brijesh Patel and Jeff Oliver also run some great camps out of Holy Cross.

There is also Excel Strength and Fitness ran by a nationally ranked strongman. Fully stocked by EliteFTS.

Excel is a great gym. EC used to work there, but it’s even further from Worcester, and you can’t just join and train on your own. It’s all supervised training.

EC could probably shed a little more light on them if he cares to.
