Deadweight Strength

Death of Gym Culture, Birth of a Training Center

San Diego Powerlifting and Strongman Gym

This is an unstaffed 24 hour access facility.  An appointment is required for all drop-ins.

Deadweight Strength is your liberation from mediocre training in San Diego.  A stronghold of serious lifters who are seeking refuge from fitness zombies across the city.  Built for those who were exiled from commercial gyms but don't belong in a “box.” 

“Give me your powerlifters, your strongmen, your huddled masses yearning to lift free.”
