It is also a supportive community that shares a commitment to gaining strength through discipline and hard work. We are here to connect people with different backgrounds to a larger community with similar passions. Our culture, team, and coaches will help you find the strength to reach your unique goals.


Strength Groundwork

Olympic Weightlifting


You do not need any experience to start Strength Groundwork. Our coaches will bring you step-by-step through our system, learning not only how to perform barbell movements effectively and safely, but also understanding how to use your body in a balanced and efficient way. 


The sport of Olympic weightlifting involves two lifts: the snatch and the clean and jerk. We offer classes for beginners as well as three different membership options for those who are more seasoned in the sport. You can choose from as little or as much coaching as you would like.

If you are a powerlifter or an aspiring powerlifter, the big three lifts––the squat, the bench press, and the deadlift––should form the foundation of your training. We offer three different membership options for powerlifting––with as little or as much coaching as you would like.



Nutrition Coaching

Private Coaching

The highest level of personalization comes through our one-on-one coaching. Work one-on-one with any of our coaches at JDI, who specialize not only in weightlifting and powerlifting, but strength and conditioning, sport-specific training, and physique training.

Subscribe and get access to all of our Programs or Work remotely with one of our expert coaches. You'll get a program catered to your training goals along with email check-ins and video sharing.

Nutrition coaching completes the equation when it comes to achieving both performance and aesthetic goals. We have Both Automated and 1-on-1 Nutrition Coaching. Find the match that works best for your needs and your wallet.
