    There's a LOT in your area....
    Ken Wheatham is an hour away on Oshawa and he knows his stuff. That's about the distance I drive 4x a week to train with my team.
    Or, you're only 3 hours from Detroit Barbell. You could easily make a once or twice a month trip across the border to learn from Clay. He's one of the best coaches in powerlifting right now.

    Also, all of these.... http://ontariopowerlifting.org/Clubs.html

    Thanks for that. Much appreciated.

    Although those places are too long of a commute to train at on a daily basis, I'll look into some for weekends or something.

    Oshawa is an hour away maybe at 3am on a Sunday. LOL Any other time a normal human would be driving it's a nightmare commute. Clear across Toronto on the 401. Yikes. Could easily take 2-3 hours one way any given weekday.

    We did go to Hercules Gym in Syracuse in March for an afternoon and we plan on doing that again soon. I think that is about a 3 hours drive, maybe 3.5.

    Yeah, training with Rheta is definitely worth that drive!

    To put it in perspective, I train with a world class crew and for a year I still made monthly trips to either the Sweatt Shop or Westside ( and a few week-long trips as well) ...... that's 6-7 hours each way once a month.
    I know it's a lot to do, but to get me from top 5 to the #1 spot for the year it was worth it.
    When I'm healthy enough to push I'll start doing it again.
