Calavera Barbell Mission:

  • The development of athletes through the sport of weightlifting.  At Calavera we focus heavily on technique and proper movement patterns in the sport in order to develop strength, speed and power. We work closely with every athlete from beginner to higher level and provide a unique environment that promotes teamwork, mental toughness, confidence, humility, and communal involvement.

Calavera Barbell is an Olympic Style Weightlifting club that trains alongside CrossFit Initiative in Reno Nevada. 

“Calavera barbell is one of my favorite gyms in the nation. Truly one of the best gyms for youth athletes. Coaches here really care about the development of their athletes and their technique. I myself have noticed how much better their movement is now compared to a few years ago.”
