Our passion as trainers comes in working with clients on a personal level to help them achieve their fitness goals. Personal Training is a great option for beginner athletes to train one-on-one with us and learn correct movement and intensity, as well as for intermediate and advanced athletes who may want another set of eyes on them to correct form or need an extra push in the intensity of their workouts.
What is included
Here at DSC we offer our main strength and conditioning class – along with a unique weekly class called GRIT.
Strength and Conditioning
Our strength and conditioning class is designed to improve your all-around general physical preparedness with progressive, focused programming. Our goal is to produce well rounded athletes who are familiar with many strength, speed, and power movements and offer classes to meet the needs of anyone interested in functional training, whether it be for their job or to improve their overall lifestyle. We incorporate barbell movements of varying complexity – pressing, pulling, squatting – as well as introductory gymnastic movements, all while building a strong aerobic engine with the use of multi-modal workouts that hit the full range of energy systems.
GRIT sessions will utilize challenges, tests, teamwork, penalties and rewards, uncertainty and sometimes unfairness, all with the goal of teaching the athlete to pay attention and do things the hard way. Skills and habits developed in GRIT classes will carry beyond that day’s training and benefit the athlete in weekly classes and outside the four walls of the gym.
At DSC, we are big believers that the best route to sustained improvement and progress towards your personal goals lies in a program that was designed with these things specifically in mind. Even the world’s best group training programs can only take you so far before plateaus are reached, and something more individualized is required. This option is for members who want a personalized program to follow and are familiar enough with the lifts to be able to complete workouts on their own. This is a great next step for Personal Training clients as they gain confidence in themselves and their abilities. We also provide remote coaching for those who want to train with DSC but are unable to come to the gym regularly.
For those of you who live in town, pairing this with our Open Gym membership offers you a great combo value of a specially designed program with regular access to a high quality facility and coaching, at a cost that could be lower than other group training packages.

DSC is proud to be the home of the Dayton Barbell Club, an official USA Weightlifting club devoted entirely to the sport of weightlifting. We focus specifically on the development and proper execution of the snatch, clean, and jerk. Our belief is that these movements, when utilized correctly, have a unique ability to develop explosive power, balance, motor recruitment, and the body awareness necessary to excel at most any other athletic endeavor. Learning how to generate maximum force and applying it as efficiently as possible to an external load provides a great basis for any sport. Our experience also tells us that regularly dead-lifting, squatting, and pressing provides dramatic benefit to the quality of life and fitness level of those not actively participating in sports.
The Dayton Barbell Club members have at their disposal all the equipment necessary to progress in the sport of weightlifting. Designated lifting platforms, bearing bars, competition bumpers, squat racks, GHD’s, jerk blocks, lifting blocks, and other specialty equipment are all available to our members. We also house two Level 1 Sport Performance coaches, experienced in hands-on coaching and personalized program design specific to the 3 weightlifting movements. We are excited to work with both experienced and novice lifters, and take great pride in spreading the love of the sport of weightlifting to as many people as possible. Barbell Club meets weekly, with optional small group personal training sessions throughout the week.
We offer nutrition and lifestyle counseling as another piece to as another piece to help you on your fitness journey. We believe balanced fitness is achieved, not only through time spent improving yourself in the gym, but also by making changes to your nutrition and daily habits outside of the gym. A minimum commitment of 3 months is required in order to really see changes and help form new habits.
