Who we are and what we do-

JDI Barbell was started by Jesse Irizarry, a former Division 1 college strength and conditioning coach with competitive experience in both Olympic weightlifting and powerlifting, and experience working with and coaching the sports’ elite athletes. He’s spent over six years in both those worlds, seeking out and learning from the best along the way.

JDI Barbell is a dedicated strength facility located in Long Island City, New York with the mission of revealing the competitive spirit in everyone. We focus exclusively on the training and education of Olympic-weightlifting, powerlifting, and foundational strength and conditioning.

Our aim is to develop long-term relationships with our members and the greater strength and fitness community of New York City and its surrounding areas. We look to accomplish this by creating a venue where athletes, coaches, and strength and fitness professionals of all backgrounds and skill levels come to train, learn, collaborate with seminars and classes, and build community. We offer group/team coaching, semi-private small group coaching, and one-on-one private coaching all focused on dedicated strength and barbell training.

We focus on building competitive barbell sport teams with our competitive powerlifting club and USAW registered Olympic-weightlifting club that compete at local and national level competitions.
