New class: Barbell WOD

It's no secret why there are two shots of UB athletes on the front page of Barbell WOD's website. UB totally loves BBWOD. We'd marry it if we could. We love that it provides a program that complements our regular CrossFit classes, allowing us to get strong and work on our Oly in a structured manner alongside the UB programming we know and love.

If you've been plugging away alone in the back room, trying to update your TrainHeroic profile in the WiFi deadspot, take heart:

We will offer a weekly Barbell WOD class on Thursdays from 5pm - 6:30pm beginning September 3rd!

We're so excited about this class - and it isn't just for those who have been following Barbell WOD, it is suitable for any and all UB members!  

The class will be coached by two of the most amazing beasts in the Olympic weightlifting and CrossFit worlds:

Spencer Moorman

2 time National Champion, 2015 Silver Medalist, World Team member, and man-bun extraordinaire, Spencer comes to us direct from the source, Cal Strength. It's not possible to bring anything but your A-game in Spencer's vicinity. Spencer will be teaching the first few sessions before it is taken over by none other than...

Colleen Fotsch

Colleen is a certified badass, having come from a elite-level competitive swimming background and (seemingly) effortlessly transitioning into the world of CrossFit. In 2015 she competed in and took 22nd place at the CrossFit Games Regionals in the hyper-competitive California region.

Currently, Colleen competes on the Grid with the San Francisco Fire team as well as serving as a strength & conditioning coach at UC Berkeley. She also has a reputation at UB for inspiring PRs with her presence alone, earning her the nickname "The PR Fairy."

Olivia Graff

Olivia's athletic origins lie in gymnastics and circus arts. After finding CrossFit in 2007, she became obsessed, and three years later left her IT career and opened United Barbell. Olivia is particularly passionate about helping people new to fitness to find joy in their growing athletic abilities. Since the birth of her daughter, Isis, in 2013, Olivia can add helping little ones find their athletic path to her list of passions.
