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.”
