Well, I am about 8mo from being back stateside and have been more and more interested in Powerlifting. I have never specifically looked up a PL gym cause around my area in NY it seems more crossfit and soft ass gyms being built over the years due to yuppies taking over ect. But, I was looking more today and BAM. Just a few blocks from my house this place is. Iv'e been overseas since 2008 so I guess on my few weeks home on leave a year I dont see these places. Place is called "South Brooklyn Weightlifting Club". I just want some of you guys with more backround to let me know how these prices seem.

I think no matter what I will be going to this gym. Looking more and more into it, it seems like something I will like. The monthly prices are about the same for other local gyms.

I like the philosophy on their website eg. "Oldschool Barbell Training". Seems it would line-up well with your PL goals. Go for it!

I signed up for a PL class in college. I was about 25. The football coach approached me and said if i'm not on the team, then I'm not allowed in the class. He was in the wrong, and i could have argued the point, but decided against.

This is about as close as I ever got to formal training on the subject.

Looks like they are big on Olympic lifting and USAPL by what I saw scanning through their FB real quick. Its probably a decent gym but if you plan on geared lifting and being on aas, id say you probably arent going to fit in. Give it a try, thats about all you can do.
