Training Programs, Prayer Habits, and a Team Environment for only $50 per month.



You are a good fit for our Club if you want to train.  You might have a home gym or a gym membership, or you might be looking to start one. You aspire to be strong, disciplined, and useful, and you want to get to work.

But something's missing- you need a plan to follow. You need a little bit of support. You need to know that your training is going somewhere and that you aren't wasting time in the gym.

Enter the Club Membership. Members get our training app, choose from one of our professionally-designed workout plans, and join our community of supportive strength enthusiasts to make the journey fun.

For less than a dollar a day, you will all of that, and more, directly to your smart phone. Just open the app and get to work.


Our training app makes it easy to get your program, log your workouts, and track your progress.

As a Club Member, you will be subscribed to one of our professionally-designed strength training programs. You can choose your program from a list, or be assigned one based on your survey responses. Your workouts will appear on your dashboard every day, as well as any spiritual habits you choose to include. You can also use the app to track your progress- weights lifted, progress pictures, weigh-ins, measurements, and more. There is also a group feed that has optional Workout of the Day, daily prayers and Scripture readings, as well as news and challenges.

You can message Coach Joe in the app with questions, and you can join our private group to fellowship with the Club or ask questions. 


No nonsense, no fluff, no time wasted.

Our workouts are designed to be efficient, consistent, and effective. You won't be wasting hours in the gym doing fluff work- our programs get you right to work doing the important movements you need to get strong. 

Coach Joe has three small children (so far), and most of our trainees are busy Catholic parents, students, seminarians, or laborers. We are committed to making the most out of your time- Barbell Club workouts done properly should never take more than one hour, except for some of the advanced programs which might require 75 minutes.

We have programs for every age and ability level, from absolute beginner to advanced powerlifter. Build useful strength, functional muscle, and disciplined mind. For a full list of our Club Programs, click below.



With a coach in your corner and a team behind you, you are sure to succeed.

This club is not just a workout program. It is a community and a family, much like a Parish Family. In our group you will find like-minded, friendly people who are also going through the same strength training journey you are. We are here to support you when you have bad days in the gym or when you need some motivation. We will pray and read Scripture with you, and we will pray for you whether you ask for it or not.

Coach Joe didn't just write your program- he is actively supervising everyone training in the Club. You can ask questions or post videos for form checks, and you will get professional support. 


For $29 a month you get more than people who pay their personal trainer THOUSANDS.

I believe that strength training can help everyone. It drastically improves mental and physical wellbeing. It teaches us discipline, humility, patience, and perseverance. It makes our bodies more useful so that we can help other people​

I created the Online Barbell Club as a way to spread the good news of Strength Training to as many people as possible. I wanted to do it in a way that would not compromise my principles and where I could provide a truly good product for less money. I believe that if you join our Club, follow your program, participate in our community, and stay consistent, you are capable of an INCREDIBLE transformation that will last a lifetime. You can't put a price on that- but you can join us for $50 bucks, which is less than the cost of a gym membership.

Ready to get strong?


Fitness is not just about changing our body. It is also a way to grow and strengthen our spirit. The Saint Michael Barbell Club is training for Holy War against the Devil and all of his evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. There is strength in numbers- let's go into battle together!
