About Our Gym


Our Facilities

We have full strength and conditioning facilities, with 14 individual weightlifting platforms, Concept 2 rowing machine, Schwinn airdynes and strongman equipment.

Our showers are ideal if for working out in your lunchbreak or just before work

Our Classes

CrossFit

BM Barbell & Fitness is home to Yeovil CrossFit. Our classes are accessible to EVERYONE of all ages, from complete beginner to the competitive athlete, and movements will be scaled to ability, and allow for pre-existing or long term injuries

Classes are an hour in length, and although the workouts and skills we focus on vary day-to-day, they are programmed to ensure measurable improvement over time in all areas

WOD Lite

WOD Lite classes have a similar format to our WOD classes, but they are non-technical, more cardio-based.

Using odd objects, and more relaxed, these are a great way to get your workouts in if you are new to fitness.
