Offering team training five times a week under the Tysons Playground roof, the Black and Red Barbell Club carries the mission of improving weightlifting proficiency and positioning individuals for success both inside and outside the gym. We do so through both art and science. With experienced coaches and athletes, the Black & Red Barbell Club provides a comprehensive approach to the sport of weightlifting.
The Black & Red principles include:
-The chase of perfection: every rep is an opportunity to do a perfect rep.
-Insistence on the highest standards: we have fun, but we also encourage everybody to productively be the best they can be, in and out of the gym.
-Open minded yet skeptical curiosity: treat all information as potentially useful information, but distill what really resonates with, and works for, you.
-The ability to dig deep: like most good things in life, what we do is hard work; learn to develop physiological, emotional, and psychological resilience.
-Enjoyment in the grind: related to digging deep, you have to be willing to put in the work, and "suffer" now to be prepared for when it counts.
-The ability for self-critique: Benchmark yourself against yourself, your peers, and the best in your weight class. Be willing to accept your flaws, so you can conquer them, and become stronger for it.
-Raising the bar: Your high standards mean you should be constantly raising the bar on your performance, your knowledge, and your general acumen. Be an example, and constantly aim to be the best you can be, always.
-Trust: Be open-minded, listen, and help your teammates with humility and support. In and out of the gym, we are a family; take care of your family!
