The owner is committed to taking care of his clients, both in word and deed. He makes everyone feel welcome, every training session personalized...and WILL NOT let you waste your money. He'd rather not take it if you're not clear on your own intentions. The facility is clean, no apparatus is broken. This place is about results. Go there if you want some.
Awesome gym. A lot of equipment and not a lot of fake tik tok influencers…. really can’t ask for more.
Craig is amazing and always so quick to respond! Love this gym!!!

Rad gym, rad people. There is so much in the way of equipment, and I love the vibe of everyone there. It has a lot of great stuff for powerlifting, strongman, and bodybuilding. I especially love the turf area with the sleds! The owner is also amazing and opened his doors to hosting our Special Olympics team, without batting an eye! Craig is knowledgeable and loves to spread that knowledge to everyone.

As a young female who is getting into powerlifting, it can be hard to find a place that isn't intimidating or that feels welcoming. When I toured this place, I instantly knew this was going to be my new favorite spot. Craig, the owner, is extremely knowledgeable and really cares for his gym and the people that come here. This isn't like any conventional gym, it is so much more, as each piece of equipment is practical and functional and serves a purpose. The name is fitting, this place is hardcore and you will feel hardcore being here. My confidence has gone up ever since I started lifting here!

My favorite gym I’ve ever been to! Has great quality equipment (everything you need and more) and an overall atmosphere that makes you want to work harder. The owner, Craig, is super friendly and helpful with any questions. Highly recommend!
Hardcore Barbell is conveniently located and has 24/7 access. There is plenty of parking and it's always well lit. The gym itself is well thought out, clean and makes optimal use of space. HCBB has all the specialized equipment you need to increase your strength and power. I've been training at HCBB since April 2019 when my previous coach retired. I'm lucky enough to be able to train wherever I want. I did my homework and researched most of Vancouver area gyms. Hardcore Barbell is the gym for me. Coach Craig has a broad base of experience and knowledge. I was able to increase my powerlifting total and I've lost 23lbs without losing any strength. The gym has a very friendly culture and hosts BBQ's and frequent deadlift parties and other social events. It's also very cool to have your home gym host powerlifting meets and strongman events.
