Yo, a Brooklyn guy over here.

Glad to be representing New York with you dudes!

Over the last year I’ve been going to a super convenient YMCA a few blocks from me, and I just recently got back down to fight’n weight so to speak. That was phase 1 for me, and now I’m facing phase 2, where I wanted to get focused on lifting.

So far, I’ve just been using weight machines and my personal set of adjustable dumbbells at home. I have made some headway from that, but I know I won’t make real progress until I spend some serious time in my gym’s weight room. Since I’m a total newbie at weightlifting, I want to get some coaching to get my form down and avoid doing anything stupid. Unfortunately, I’m just not the type of guy who can mirror whatever he sees on a YouTube tutorial, and considering it’s 2018, it’s surprising how involved searching for a personal trainer is.

I’ve decided the best route for me may be signing up for coaching at a specialist gym that focuses on lifting. Have any of you guys done that, and if so do you have any recommendations? If there’s a different option or approach you think I should consider, I’m totally all ears here.

I’m currently considering a membership at the Brooklyn Barbell Club in Williamsburg, though I think I might be better off going somewhere in Manhattan south of the park, so I can more easily fit in coaching/classes before or after work.

Anyway, even if you don’t have any advice, I’m looking forward to getting better acquainted with you all soon!
