I imagine the various Crossfit locations in St. Louis would be able to hook you up as well.

I went to Kirkwood Weightlifting Club, I sent them an email and noone responded. So I stopped by, they are based out of a middle school.

I go in the Middle School, and I ask the front office about the club, and the little treated me like I was were a molestor lol. She said the club is for little kids only, well if you go to their web site it says otherwise.

I checked it out the otherday, the guys were real decent, somev ery competitive and strong 14 year olds out there. It is like something out of Eastern Europe smack dab in the middle of the mid south.
