Visited this facility while in SLC on business and it far exceeded expectations from owners to equipment, to the facility itself.
In SLC for the solar power convention, I happened on this gym while looking for a place to train. BMB is one of the two or three best locations for serious training I have ever encountered. The first floor is all about barbells. Every barbell is color-coded with tape so you know if it's for deadlift, squat & bench, or Olympic. Lots of bumper and olympic plates, and most calibrated I think. Monolifts for squat *and* bench. They have specialty bars as well (cambered, yoke, etc.). They have a belt squat machine! Upstairs is rigs, dumbbells, cables, sleds, etc. Swiss bar, which is awesome. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful, with none of the attitude I sometimes encounter at well-equipped serious training facilities. Uber from my downtown hotel took only 15 minutes. If you're in SLC for any reason and you are looking for a place to train, you *must* go to Big Mountain Barbell. More...
Dropped in on a Sunday. Gym is very well equipped - calibrated plates, bumbers, ssb, transformer bar , duffalo bar, hex bars, oly bars, power bars. If I lived here, I would definitely go here. Highly recommend for anyone interested in weightlifting or powerlifting More...
This gym is awesome! Super friendly staff, plenty of nice equipment. Excellent services!!
Great facility, basically everything you could want for getting swole and making mad gainz. Shame there’s not a location closer to Salt Lake City proper!
Great strength gym!
I was looking for a trainer so I reached out to BMB. Zac reached out promptly, put me in contact with a trainer, our schedules didn't line up, so he suggested I check out the FitBliss Fitness Ladies Lift program. I've been going to LL at BMB for 2.5 months and I love both.This is a great gym. It has a ton of quality equipment. The people working out here are always friendly as you navigate your sets. It's definitely a lifting gym, not just rows of treadmills, but there are pelotons, bikes, rowers, and a stairclimber available. Since I've been going they've regularly fixed and added more equipment. I love the locally-owned, small business vibe; it feels like everyone is there because they want to be there and get a good workout in. I really enjoy going and have no complaints. More...
Was the only gym open on a holiday, so i came in here for the day. Good equipment, good people.
Lynndsey and Zac have brought to the Salt Lake Valley a gym that cannot be rivaled. Sure, there are some decent gyms that specialize in bodybuilding, powerlifting, or weightlifting; but no gym around specializes in all three, like Big Mountain Barbell, and at such a high level. For the weightlifters, there are plenty of Eleiko and Rogue bars, Eleiko and Pendlay plates, pulling blocks, jerk blocks, squat stands, and 5 platforms to work with. For the powerlifters, there are multiple deadlift platforms, squat racks, benches, squat/bench combo racks, monolifts, pound and kilogram plates, and specialty bars to work with. People of all fitness backgrounds can enjoy the leg presses, glute ham raise, reverse hyper, cable machines, dumbbells, kettlebells, belt squat machine, sleds on the turf area, plyo boxes, sandbags, maces, Concept 2 rowers, assault bikes, and Peleton Treadmills. Finally, the atmosphere is perfect. No where else will you see beginners mingling with national level weightlifters, record holding powerlifters, national level bikini competitors, and great coaches that all show each other support. More...
Always clean and have a great workout environment. I would recommend this gym over many others. Well worth a membership.
Been to a lot of gyms and have never felt more at home than at BMB! PLENTY of weights and equipment to meet everyone’s needs!!! I’ll be a life long member.
Love working out here! Has everything you need to train! Powerlifting, bodybuilding, Olympic lifting, etc! Great lifting crowd!
Planet fitness convert, life is much better on this side.
BMB is the best gym I've ever been a member of. The kindest, friendliest owners, trainers, and members. The best and most equipment you'll find anywhere, all well maintained and clean. And an environment and culture that encourages you to go hard and do your best.You won't find any of the negative gym stereotypes here that you'll find at other other chain gyms. Let me put it this way: I get a free membership to a local chain gym from work, and I still pay out of pocket for a membership at BMB, because it's worth every penny. More...
This gym is awesome! Especially for anyone who is serious about lifting. No more waiting for equipment at the big box gyms! The owners are an awesome couple who really care about the gym and all their customers/friends. And ladies definitely check out the women’s Fitbliss program, best thing I ever did! More...
This gym is awesome. The people, the facility, the atmosphere, everything about this place is amazing. Does not hold the hustle and bustle of a VASA or other commercial gym which is great. Everyone is willing to assist when needed and give pointers as well. Highly recommend this place. More...
I dropped in to Big Mountain Barbell to practice for a competition. I LOVE that it’s open 24 hours a day! The big guys who were lifting there were so helpful, friendly, and welcoming. There is definitely a community of lifters at this gym. The equipment is quality, clean, and lift specific. Close to freeway too! More...
Great gym for those who don’t want the craziness of Vasa. Everyone I’ve met is friendly but still minds their own business.
I love coming here! Its 24 access, so you can come whenever it suits you. The equipment is perfect for powerlifters, Olympic lifters, and cross fitters. Everyone I've met that works here and lifts here have been so nice and helpful. It's a great place for anyone who competites or those who want to start lifting. More...
At first I felt a little timid to switch to BMB. I thought only really strong people work out here, but there are people at every fitness level! I love the positivity energy.
Awesome gym with a friendly welcoming atmosphere.
Best Gym in Salt Lake, loads of equipment, minimal crowds, everyone is super friendly.
BMB is such a great gym! they have all the equipment you need from weightlifting to powerlifting. No matter what your focus on fitness is they have the equipment you need. Zac is a great owner and seems to really care about his members. More...
Come for the gym session, stay for the community. I love every part of Big Mountain. Top of the line equipment(seriously, the top top), great coaches, wonderful owners, but most importantly, the awesome gym community. Most gyms you will walk in, everyone puts their head down, headphones on, and never interact with anyone; that is not BMB. Walk in after a few weeks of being around and you will be greeted with smiling faces and friends. Bodybuilder, powerlifter, Olympic, CrossFit, or just trying to get in shape, Big Mountain will take good care of you. More...
I started working with the Fitbliss program at BMB a while ago and had a great experience! It is a very different atmosphere than other gyms I’ve been to, in the best ways! People within the Fitbliss program and others in the gym were so accepting, helpful, non judge mental, encouraging, friendly, motivating, friendly, & i could go on forever honestly! I saw almost immediate results by doing the guided exercises as well as with help from a coach with my nutrition! I would recommend this place to anyone! More...
Best decision I ever made was leaving VASA and the “bro” culture there and coming to this gym. The equipment is top notch, the staff is super helpful,and the gym treats everyone like family. Come join the community and stop dealing with the the awful commercial gyms. More...
Amazing gym! Amazing people! A ton of equipment, clean, well maintained, and overall great energy from all its members!
BMB is home! I live in Sugar House and it's 100% worth the drive. Big Mountain Barbell has every piece of training equipment you could ever wish for, there's lots of space, it's clean, and there are nothing but good vibes in the gym.
I’ve been a member of this gym for almost a year now. I’m a powerlifter who competes in USAPL, and having access to competition equipment is a huge advantage. The gym is clean, has a great atmosphere, and great people. Zac and Lynndsey are constantly adding equipment. If you want a serious, fun place to train you found it. More...
This is the place to go if you want gainz!!!! Best gym on the west coast with all types of top of the line equipment and coaches. They can help you get strong and reach your goals just like they did for me. More...
I painstakingly researched gyms and visited several in the greater SLC area before enthusiastically choosing BMB after moving from out-of-state (and leaving a world class facility). Ample equipment for body building, power lifting, etc. There are also excellent facilities upstairs with an area of turf, sleds, kettlebells, plyo boxes, aerobic conditioning equipment (rowing machines & assault bikes etc). It's my jam. I get a lot of work done here to support my hobbies, so can you no matter your goals, sport, etc. Owners and coaches are all great. Culture is positive. Finally, it's affordable and BMB are always making improvements. Seamless transition from my former facilities to an outstanding gym. More...
Best gym out there. It’s hard finding a gym that has great equipment (oly especially) for such a great price. Not only is the equipment top notch. The owners are great and very responsive. You can catch them in the gym lifting or are easy to contact via phone. Not to mention that it’s super clean, 24/7 and just a great work out environment.Update: just ran through the mountains of new Zealand.... peloton treadmill. More...
Love this gym! So hard to find a spot for an Olympic weightlifter. Most places make me set up in a corner but not here! There’s plenty of room and nice equipment. You get spoiled here, makes it impossible to enjoy other gyms. Can’t say enough good things about this place! More...
Going into a gym has always been intimidating for me, but from the day that i walked into this gym i felt nothing but welcomed! The gym has some of the best equipment for how I want to workout, and everyone there is always willing to help. Best gym around by far! More...
Fantatic community and an amazing gym. Equipment is well maintained and the staff is super friendly! I neve have to wait for a squat rack!
Top of the line equipment catering to a variety of different lifters. Very clean, very spacious, and nice staff. BMB is constantly purchasing new, top of the line, equipment to attract all types of lifters. I highly recommend Big Mountain Barbell. More...
Big Mountain Barbell is awesome. Home gym vibe but with basically any piece of equipment you need. Two thumbs uppppp
Excellent equipment, atmosphere(excellent athletes in different sports), amenities(sauna and locker room), plenty of space, 24 hour key.
Being a not naturally athletic human, in the past I’ve had a hard time feeling comfortable at gyms. Bad energy, not feeling like I belong, or men giving you creep vibes when you’re stretching. Never ONCE have I experienced any bad energy or vibes at Big Mountain Barbell. Whether I’m doing one on ones with my amazing coach, Anneke; or in class with Meghan they give me the knowledge I need as a newer lifter to be able to master my lifts! After 8 months of coming here I’ve been able to grow so much thanks to my lovely coaches and peers at my gym!! All the people at the gym love having other people here no matter your experience. I am so glad I found this gym and for the first time in my life, I’m honestly so excited to go to the gym! I highly recommend coming here and joining our lil fam bam. More...
I had been looking at this gym for about a year when my wife finally got me signed up because she was tired of me complaining every day about my then current big box gym getting too busy with the squat rack curlers. I was only hesitant because the drive is 3 times longer. Totally worth it. I quickly found out how legit this place is. So legit, I cannot quit, therefore I shall not quit. More...
Great equipment, great setup.
Great place for oly weightlifting. Love the set up and the atmosphere.
Fantastic barbell gym! Friendly and helpful staff, even the gym goers are ready and willing to step in to offer encouragement and help. A lot of great equipment and it is well maintained. Plenty of space to do Olympic lifts, walking lunges, sled work, and even shuttle sprints. More...
I’m so grateful I found this gym! Some of the best owners and coaches I have ever met! You feel like your part of a community and not just any gym! Love bay!
You could call this place a gym, but these walls hold so much more than top of the line lifting equipment. This gym will win your heart over with the unconditional support of the individuals who lift here. Zach and Lyndsey have created a beautiful location where judgment and intimidation isn't tolerated and encouragement can be felt the moment you walk through the doors. The trainers and management are incredibly passionate not only about fitness, but also the mental health and overall health of members and clients. I wouldn't consider going anywhere else. More...
Hands down the BEST gym around. Great environment set up for people ready to achieve their fitness dreams and desires. Highly recommend you try a drop in pass and give this place a go!
By far the best gym I have been to. High quality equipment and stellar trainers. You won't be let down.
I dropped my membership with Vasa in order to join Big Mountain. This gym has a sense of community and belonging that is amazing. They have all of the equipment needed for any workout plan. Really, the best gym in the valley! More...
Great culture, equipment and staff. Hands down the best gym I have been to. You will not be disappointed.
After a long journey and many gyms all over this country I joined Big Mountain Barbell and instantly felt at home. All equipment is clean and functional, everybody that I have come in contact with has been very friendly and available to lend a hand with a spot, advice or positive boosts. Zero egos, just straight family.
Big Mountain Barbell sells $10 day passes, which was perfect for me while traveling through SLC last December. I hate missing my workouts when I have to travel for work, so finding BMB was serendipity. They were extremely accommodating to even let me into the facility during the late hours I typically workout (8pm+).As I told them during my visit, I would sign up immediately for BMB if I were a SLC resident. As someone who works out almost entirely with barbells, this club has everything I could need, including a few racks I hadn't even ever seen before. I was delighted I could even make use of their weightlifting belts, as I hadn't brought my own while traveling.I hope to make use again of their day passes for any future work travel I have in SLC! More...
Perty great place to work out. Could use some more amenities
This gym is home to some of the top athletes and best people in the state. Everyone who trains here is serious and committed to a lifestyle of growth & gains. I recently watched the Ronnie Coleman documentary about his journey to 8 Olympia victories and the gym he trained at reminded me of BMB (Big Mountain Barbell). It's not flashy or fancy but it breeds winners and has a culture that can't be beat! They only purchase the best and most necessary equipment too. You've got all you need here and it's centrally located in Midvale. 5 STARS! More...
Really great space! I've been working out here since Jan 2018 and I only wish I would have found it earlier.
Love this gym! Always welcoming, clean, approachable and WOW do they have amazing equipment. As someone that enjoys a little bit of everything at a gym, this is my happy place! I appreciate everything they have to offer and there’s something for everyone. More...
Great gym - locally owned and always clean. New equipment & Amazing community.
I love this gym, it has everything you need to get a great workout in. It's quiet and clean, and since it is a private gym there aren't crowds and crowds of people in at all times. I also like that there are members from all walks of life and all skill sets. It makes for a great, non-judgemental environment. More...
Excellent place for serious weight training
I've never experienced a gym better than this one!Their culture is amazing and it transfers from their staff to the people working out there. Everyone there is considerate of one another and from the moment you sign up it's like you're a part of a family. I couldn't say enough about how wonderful this gym is. I'm cancelling my membership due to moving too far to commute and I know I'm going to have a hard time finding a new gym because they've set the bar so high. More...
Great people, great Gym! Highly recommend!
BMB not only has all of the equipment you need, but they also have coaches that specialize in so many different types of training. They have coaching for every goal. Usually gyms can be intimidating. BMB has the best atmosphere with gym members and coaches that will help you if you have any questions with equipment and they make you feel comfortable and confident at the gym. It's a clean, and large gym that helps keep you feel motivated even just from the vibes you get while walking in the door. They believe that everyone is important now matter how experienced of a lifter you are. More...
I can't decide what's better between the gym or the people.. definitely a welcoming environment for men, women and children. There's no other gym in UT open 24/7 with this type of equipment- 10/10 recommend checking them out More...
I love BMB! Best gym I've ever been to, always clean, positive energy, and so many people willing to help you!
Best gym in Utah.
No better place to workout. Seriously they have just about anything you need. Check it out!
My husband and I started coming in January and have loved our experience. Everyone is always very kind and upbeat. I love the key card access and the flexibility to come at any point (even holidays). It is not your typical gym with 100 treadmills and one squat rack for everyone to share, it is catered for power lifting workouts. There is always plenty of equipment to go around. Highly recommend to anyone looking for not only a gym but a community to be apart of. More...
Top notch equipment, but the people are even better.
Been coming to BMB for about a month now! They're constantly improving the gym. Providing proper equipment for all of their members. It's a fun relaxed environment! Definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to train! More...
Hands down best gym, best people, best community. I love this place and you will too.
Love this place!! Lynndsey and Zac are salt of the earth owners, true professionals, who love and care about all their members. They've gone above and beyond to accommodate me, my husband, my friends. I can't think of a better place to support and get my work out in. More...
I love it, coaches are the best, always encouraging you can do it, and always making sure you are progressing on each step.
I’m happy to be part of them!
LOVE this gym! It's much more than a place to sling weights around too. The trainers are all committed and passionate about helping. Everyone who goes there follows suit and the culture is incredible. I've been training for years and feel very refreshed to have found this place. I joined the ladies lift movement/class and am so happy I did. My form has improved leaps and bounds and I always leave with a huge smile on my face :-) Five stars!!! ***** More...
I have only been going to BMB for a few weeks but I absolutely love this place!
The gym is clean, well-organized and has fantastic equipment.
Everyone that I have interacted with at the gym has been very friendly and helpful. Regardless of what goals you have there is a program and a great coach there to help you. I would recommend BMB for anyone without hesitation. More...
This gym is the best. Big Mountain Barbell has all you need to do any type of training, plus some. The atmosphere and vibe is awesome, the people are awesome, and the owners are awesome. I think this business is run so professionally, and they genuinely care about making this place the best gym around. The amount of time I spend training, it has become my second home. More...
Hillary Ann Waldron
���BMB!!! Atmosphere, lifters & friends... all top notch!! So glad I get to be apart of it!
Great facility and amazing people! Moving to new gym can be tough sometimes, but not here. Everyone has been welcoming and awesome! I have everything I need and more at big mountain barbell. Equipment is top notch and there is always more being added. I can also train when I want, which is a big plus with my hectic schedule. Mahalo big mountain barbell for adding another to your ohana! More...
I've waited 5 months to write this review because I wanted to get a good idea of how consistently awesome BMB is. I thought, at first, it was too good to be true. The owners, Lynndsey and Zac are always welcoming to every customer who walks through their door, new or old. They are also always looking for ways to improve their community, knowledge, equipment and facility. I am currently starting a new job and my graduate program and Lynddsey was so accommodating and found a way for me to still participate and be a part of the BMB community. I appreciate their facility, their professionalism, and most of all, how they run their business. I love Big Mountain Barbell. � More...
I was very sad to leave my previous gym. However, from the minute I walked in to BMB I knew I was home! The owners are incredible and really care for their member. They have high level coaches and trainers that are there for you every step of the way! From beginners to pro athletes this gym has everything and every level is welcomed. I am excited to be a part of the BMB family. That’s exactly how you are treated here, like family! ❤️ More...
What a great gym. Well laid out. Everything you’d want in equipment. Some of the best coaches around. Energy Oh yeah, tons of energy you feel as soon as you walk in
Best gym I have ever been too! Everyone is like a big family here. Very clean and organized gym. Couldn’t ever see myself leaving. Very spoiled with the best equipment. More...
Excellent gym and people.
Big Mountain Barbell has truly been the best gym I have been to. I have been working out with Anneke since November and I have seen great results and have also learned a lot of new things. She knows how to make the workouts personal for your needs and works really hard on working with your schedule as well! I would definitely recommend this gym! More...
Great gym, great people. :)
Best gym out there! All the members and trainers here are goal driven and more than happy to help you with any questions. Friendly faces light up each room when you're there . 24/7 access to members. Great equipment and a highly competitive price. Why go anywhere else? More...
Megan Marie Forrest
I love this gym SO much!! Lynndsey and Zac always go above and beyond to make sure that their clients are happy with everything. The facility is always kept so clean and tidy which is a huge plus! They are constantly working to improve the gym where needed (even tho I can't think of anything that needs improvement �) and genuinely care about their members wants and needs. Most importantly - the gym vibe is my favorite part! Everyone there is so warm and welcoming it makes it so easy to be there. Working out doesn't feel like "working out" because you are surrounded by so many cool, fun and friendly peeps! If you're even thinking about checking this place out, come on in! I know you will fall in love, just like I did! � More...
Rachelle Gunderson Smith
BMB is a gym for everyone! They have the best coaches, stellar equipment and the gym feels like a family. Whatever your goals are (fat loss, get in shape, powerlifting, body building, etc. ), Big mountain Barbell is the place to make it happen! More...
This gym is full of wisdom, care and completely kick-ass workouts. The trainers are athletic coaches that not only understand body mechanics, they understand what it takes to customize programs to help individuals reach their goals. I've been an athlete and fitness enthusiast for 20 years and never found a place that helped me like they do. The personal training is unmatched and the group classes are super fun, (with the right amount of sweat and tears :)) Thank you Lynndsey, Zac and team! More...
This gym is dope!!!!! Maybe my second time here as my work covers the expense. A very unique experience. It seems to be on the honor system for entry. Members are issued an access card to enter. Dont be a peepee face and abuse it! Everything you need whether cardio, lifting, or crossfit. Get in here!!! More...
Hottest gym around. Great for powerlifting with a very dedicated yet joyous and fun atmosphere.
I love that everyone here is happy and friendly. Trainer or member, everyone is so supportive and I'm not a muscle bound girl. But the big boys are happy to let you work in on a machine and help and spot. I love it here. More...
If you are looking for quality equipment and people this gym is great. It is available 24/7 with a key card, two levels of equipment. Multiple squat racks, deadlift stations, benches, and Olympic lifting pads. Along with bands, chains, and tons of plates. (No more waiting!) There is not a lot of machines, but you have everything you will NEED and more. The owners are there a lot and are the nicest people and make sure they say hello when they see you. The people who workout at this gym are great. I feel safe leaving my phone/keys while I work out and I don’t worry about theft. Join the gym, or some of the many classes they provide. More...
Amazing if you are trying to reach lifting goals! Have great help and everyone is super nice and always willing to give you pointers
What's not to love about this gym? It is big, friendly, open 24/7, 365 days a year, and has what you need for your strength goals.
This gym is great for strength athletes; powerlifting, strongman, olympic lifting, obstacle racing, highland games, etc.
The coaches at this gym are amazing too. I have personally worked with a few of them and have found them to be very personable and knowledgeable. More...
I love this gym! Always clean, always a rack available, and the people here are really the best of the best. The most positive gym atmosphere I've ever experienced.
Best private training facility in the state. Something for everyone.
The best gym I have found since moving to Utah. I have been a member for about 6 months and my only regret is that I didn't find it the day I moved out here. The owners are super nice and always around. The trainers are super knowledgeable, friendly, and willing to help anyone. I would highly recommend the gym and every trainer there. There is also top of the line equipment unlike other local gyms *cough* Vasa *cough*. Chains, bands, dozens of barbells, bumper plates, 6 squat racks, and much more. 10/10 I will be sad when I have to move back west without my Big Mountain Barbell family. More...
This one of the best places to train. Tye Nickell is an amazing trainer. Great facility with everything you need. He got me in the best shape of my life and I highly recommend him to anyone.
This is what a gym should be like. Always welcoming and no attitudes. It's all people who are there to be serious about working out and be positive about it.
I've been coming to Big Mountain Barbell for a little over 6 weeks now doing their AM group classes with Zac and Lynndsey and have to say I absolutely love their program! Both are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I learn something every single day I'm in the gym, from perfecting my form on a lift or working on correcting my APT. Every day is a new set of challenges that are exactly that, challenging. However its fun which makes the time fly by! Not only am I learning a ton about fitness but I am learning about nutrition as well. Learning how to eat. MACRO counting is a perfect fit and I really enjoy it and has helped me see some quick results while still being able to live and not be on some crazy can't eat anything diet. If anything I learned to eat more!If you're looking for a great group of people that offer a premium service there is no reason to hesitate with BMB! More...
Kristen is so awesome and really knows her stuff! She continually challenges me and pushes me further than I could do on my own. I love working out at Big Mountain Barbell as it's more of an intimate space but has everything I need for a killer workout. I love that Kristen gives me a nutrition plan along with detailed workouts to do on my own on other days and adjusts everything as often as needed. Definitely not a cookie cutter plan! More...
Highly educated staff! I learned so much about fitness and nutrition in a short amount of time I would recommend these guys to anyone.
The trainers here are super knowledgeable and helpful, but aren't afraid to kick my ass, which is good. I enjoy the group trainings and always leave feeling like a million bucks. This is not some stuffy, pretentious gym where everyone is flexing in the mirror. It's laid back, but hardcore, all at the same time. Definitely try this place. More...
