Eaton Barbell

The Area Leader in Strength Sports
Private Strength Training Club


Eaton Barbell was brought to life in 2008 due to the lack of quality gyms in the area. We started out in a small 700 sq ft building, and we are now on the 3rd location, as we had to expand over the years.  I wanted a private club so we have no distractions from outside.  Our current location boasts 4,300 sq ft.  We have been in our current location for over 7 years now.  I trained at the great Powerstation Gym in Middletown for years and learned from one of the best gym owners in Mike Ferguson.  Mike taught me a lot on how to run a gym and outfit it with high quality, functional equipment.  Most all gyms are a cookie cutter chain gym with just basic equipment and crappy bars.  I wanted more than that. Our gym has that old school hardcore feel, but filled full of high quality competition equipment, specialty bars, and other solid, functional pieces for all of your strength needs. Name brands such as Hammer Strength, Nebula, EliteFTS, Ghost Strong, Icarian, Rogue, etc.   If you are looking for a cardio bunny style of gym with loads of treadmills and ellipticals, then this gym probably isn't for you.  We are the opposite of Planet Fitness style of gyms.  We allow and encourage chalk, deadlifts, heavy squats, and some jamming music.  
Our gym also hosts some of the best Powerlifting events in the Tri-State Area. Our Federation of choice is the USPA. The United States Powerlifting Association has presence in all 50 states and is still one of the fastest growing federations and is the second largest fed in the United States. Interested in trying a strength sport? Just want to go to a gym to lift or get in better shape? Come check us out. You wont be disappointed.
