We offer powerlifting coaching and programming from top coaches to build specific strength in the squat, bench press, and deadlift. However, you are also free to come into JDI and do your own thing. Come just to lift or come with programming from another coach. Lifters of all levels and leagues are welcome.

Membership Options

Every powerlifting membership offers 24-hour access to our facilities. We have three membership options that offer this unlimited access with as little or as much coaching as you would like: General Open Gym, Powerlifting Open Gym, and Custom Coaching with Open Gym.
