Trying to find a strongman gym near Petersburg / Ft. Lee, VA


Going to be around Ft. Lee for a few months, and trying to find a strongman/ powerlifting gym in the area. Does anyone have any suggestions?

check out the Weight Room in Richmond


If youre just looking for a strongman gym the hour and half drive to Brute Strength is WORTH IT! Its in Norfolk but if youre only going for events once a week isnt bad. One of the best strength sport gyms in the country!


I can tell you unequivocally that the Weight Room in Richmond is the best in the area. I lived in VA for almost ten years and trained there for five.

First of all, you won't find a gym in the area with stronger trainees. (I don't consider Brute to be in the area). If you need convincing, youtube some of these names. They are all Weight Room trainees:

Garrett Walters
Nick Minneti
Mike Belby
Rory Lazowski

They have atlas stones, farmer's walk, yoke, sandbags and kegs, logs, olympic platforms, etc.
