Empowering Women! Debunking Myths and Building Strength at Cherokee Barbell

At Cherokee Barbell, we foster a thriving community of women who embrace the power of strength training. Contrary to a common myth perpetuated by society, lifting weights does not transform a woman’s physique into that of a bulky bodybuilder, a misconception debunked both scientifically and through our members’ experiences

Men in Weightlifting at CBSN

At Cherokee Barbell, we extend a warm welcome to humble men eager to join our team. Embracing the art of Olympic Weightlifting, the snatch and clean and jerk become exhilarating full-body exercises that engage your legs, glutes, back, abs, shoulders, and arms simultaneously. These dynamic movements efficiently burn calories in a condensed workout, making Olympic lifts a potent strategy for reducing body fat, enhancing muscle growth, bolstering strength, and optimizing your strength training sessions

Weightlifting for FAT LOSS

Weight training allows our body to utilize its aerobic and anaerobic systems when done efficiently. This means we can burn calories from all energy stores when performing resistance training – carbs, sugars, and fats while still targeting muscle groups and putting on lean muscle mass.

Weightlifting for CONFIDENCE

Looking and feeling aesthetically better restores feelings of self-confidence and self-esteem, and this has a positive impact on our social health. Lifting weights also releases feel-good endorphins in our body and increases the level of serotonin, making us feel more alert and productive!

Weightlifting is for every age

Especially for women, strengthening bones is critical to prevent osteoporosis and protect against bone fractures. Olympic lifts produce large forces on the legs, spine, and arms, precisely what is needed to stimulate the body to lay down new bone and improve bone density.

Weightlifting is Inspiring & Fun

No matter how “heavy” you lift, remember it is your journey. Inspiration is not only in the numbers, inspiration is found in doing hard work that will make you better (even if it is not your favorite and the coach programmed it anyway). Inspiration is found in consistency and inspiration is found in community.

The health benefits of weightlifting and strength training inspire us in every area of life. Developing the habit of training regularly creates greater goal achievement – through tracking results and accountability.

As you grow as an athlete your confidence increases and your charisma sharpens.

Being a part of the Cherokee Barbell has been great. I have received top notch coaching from coach Ayse. Thanks to her feedback and programming, I have definitely seen improvement in technique. It has allowed me to be much more consistent with my lifts. Having an online community for support is a big plus as well.”
