The Broomall Barbell Club (BBC) is a strength-based program meant to compliment the General Physical Preparedness (GPP) sessions offered in the CrossFit environment. The BBC is led by Marshall Roy.
What’s special about the BBC?
- The BBC focuses training around a classic, proven strength tool – the barbell.
- Each class is tailored around a daily strength workout that is executed as a group. Many of the CrossFit staples, such as squats, deadlifts and presses will be found in this environment, in addition to BBC-only tools and approaches. While the emphasis is on strength, there may occasionally be short conditioning workouts or finishers.
- The BBC compliments CrossFit by allowing participants to focus specifically on strength. When an athlete returns to the CrossFit environment, he or she is stronger and has more capacity in CF metcons and benchmarks!
The Broomall Barbell Club is open to existing CFDV athletes only. Athletes may switch in and out of the BBC on one-month cycles, starting at any time.
If you’re interested in the BBC, please contact us today to schedule a trial class. We recommend that most lifters spend 3-6 months in the CrossFit environment before considering the BBC.
The Broomall Barbell Club costs $35 monthly (does not include the regular CFDV membership, which is required).
I love Crossfit metcons, can I still do them as part of the BBC programming?
In short, yes. Many athletes may want to stay active in CrossFit to keep skills fresh and preserve their lungs. It is entirely possible that a CFDV athlete could attend three BBC sessions and 1-2 CrossFit classes per week.
I can’t make every session of the scheduled class times, should I still sign up?
Yes, as long as you are averaging 2 in-class sessions per week, you are going to get most the benefits of the class hours. If you need time to get a session in outside of the regular class hours, we can accommodate you via our open gym sessions. Marshall will make the BBC programming available for those that choose to make up workouts.
Will there be programming for more days per week than the scheduled class hours?
No, but we are always looking to add more class hours, should we have the demand.
I’m not a current Crossfit Delaware Valley gym member, can I still join the BBC?
You will need to sign up for a CFDV membership in addition to the $35 BBC charge. A full listing of our CrossFit memberships is available here.
