Small Group Strength Coaching & Personal Training

why barbell training?

Strength is a skill, and with any skill, you must put in the time to become better. Strength training should be considered practice — more importantly, a skillful practice.

Did you know barbell is the most effective and efficient tool for building muscle, while allowing you to make outstanding strength gains? Pair your barbell training with kettlebell training and you've got a winning combo guaranteed to get you stronger and take you to a whole new level of physical transformation – hitting your fitness goals.

There are only four Certified StrongFirst Barbell Instructors in the Twin Cities Metro area – Coach Ericka is one of them. Adhering to the education and principles of the StrongFirst Lifter (SFL) curriculum, EDK Barbell Coaching follows a high standard of strength and skill. You will learn how to effectively and safely execute barbell lifts (like a Boss) with in-depth instruction and an individualized progressive program.

Quality over quantity in every session – never compromising technique and always prioritizing the importance of a high-caliber program. A dedicated strength training routine empowers your commitment to keep your goals in check and exceed them.
