Mississippi Barbell

The Source for Weightlifting in Mississippi

Mississippi Barbell, formerly known as Mississippi Weightlifting Club, is a strength sport nonprofit for the state. It was the first USA Weightlifting sanctioned Club in the Mississippi and remains the largest.

We have two locations: (1) our olympic weightlifting headquarters in Brandon, MS located near the metro Jackson, MS area and (2) our satellite olympic weightlifting location Mississippi Barbell Gulf Coast located in Gulfport, MS near Biloxi, Ocean Springs, Saucier, and Bay St. Louis.

Our organization trains and promotes Olympic weightlifting and powerlifting. We serve as a resource for anyone looking to compete at the local, national, or international level and for anyone who wants to improve their lifts for sports performance. Mississippi Barbell is open to all levels of athletes from any walk of life, at any age, who want to become better athletes and have fun along the way. We want to sharpen ourselves and all interested Mississippi athletes competitively. In order to be the best, you have to train with the best. And that is exactly what Mississippi Barbell aims to be.

We are located within Reservoir Crossfit at 131 Builders Square, Brandon, MS and within Gulfport Crossfit at 300 Creosote Road, Gulfport, MS.
