Welcome to

Carolina Barbell Strength and Performance Gym


About the Gym

Carolina Barbell is a 24 Hour Strength and Performance Gym in downtown Aberdeen NC. We run as an open gym format so members can train however they want, whenever they want. Whether that is for a specific strength sport, or for general fitness and well-being. 

Our 5000+ square foot training facility has competition platforms, specialty bars, powerlifting and olympic weightlifting equipment, functional fitness & general strength training equipment, 60 ft turf with sleds and prowlers, peg board, 20ft+ climbing rope, rowers, ski ergs, tredmill, stairmill, and bikes.

We have Strongman implements such as yokes, logs, circus dumbbells, atlas stones, loadable mouser block, husafell, axle bars, kegs, sandbags, conan’s wheel. We also have cable machines, two dumbbell areas with dumbbells up to 160lbs, and other bodybuilding style equipment.

We have the basics covered and lots of unique training equipment you won’t find at many gyms. We have a cap on our maximum number of members, in order to keep the facility from being crowded. 

We also have a non-staffed kid room with TV and toys for your kids to hang out in while you train.
