We are obsessed with creating a "third place" where athletes can meet, socialize, and network.

Through competition and social events, we encourage getting to know the person you sweat beside.

Labor Day 2014

UB Teams at Moxie Madness 2014


Two United Barbell athletes created WODwell, a video series showing athletes with a range of skill & strength performing CrossFit workouts. United Barbell is their home gym, but they tour other gyms connecting with coaches and athletes from all over the globe. WODwell has since grown into a WOD search engine that can filter by movement and equipment, offering related videos to help you strategize your workout. WODwell.com

A group of big-hearted UB athletes came together to form Westside Athletes Association, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to transforming the lives of at-risk teenagers by providing CrossFit scholarships and support in cultivating healthy lifestyle habits.
