STRONGER IS BETTER
When we train for strength, we improve every aspect of physical fitness. Stronger people are healthier, more capable, and have a better quality of life. Strength is in everyone, but most people do not know how to become strong.
Anyone can make you hot, sweaty, and tired. Only we can produce predictable, rapid, measurable progress over the long-term. There is nothing random about what and how we teach and we will be the first to tell you that what we teach is not complex. It's simple but hard. If you are willing to endure a little hardship and stay consistent you will receive results unlike you have ever experienced.

COMMUNITY IS IMPORTANT
Undergoing strenuous training is hard, so why go it alone? At Next Level Barbell we value and foster community among our lifters.
From the King of the Hill friendly lifting competitions to our monthly team dinners we create many excuses for you to interact and create friendships with other amazing people. Between our Starting Strength Novice Classes, and our Barbell Club there is plenty of potential to train alongside others at a price that fits your budget.
When you join Next Level Barbell you join a family, but one that you actually like. We can’t wait to welcome you to the team.
WE STRIVE FOR EXCELLENCE
Next Level Barbell is the only Starting Strength affiliate gym in Portland. We provide all the necessary equipment without the unnecessary distractions. Every detail has been thought out to provide the best experience for our lifters. But equipment by itself does not create athletes and training with a coach is far more productive.
Our coaches have extensive and varied backgrounds, but universally they are some of the best in the business. All Next Level Barbell coaches are Starting Strength certified and our assistant coaches and interns are actively pursuing the credential. We live what we teach and we cannot wait to share our expertise with you. Learn more about our coaching staff here.
