our goal

Olympic Weightlifting is a function of four major areas: Strength, Speed, Technique, and Mobility. It is our job to hone your body in each of these areas. Generally, as one area improves, we tend to lose something in the others. To combat this, our programming encompasses movements from each category on a daily basis. As a result, our athletes become all around better weightlifters.

about us

Joey Hoisescu

Head Coach + Founder

Weightlifting is something I love, pursue and deeply enjoy. I found the sport by way of CrossFit and quickly made the decision to stop focusing on my Fran time in favor of chasing kilos. Helping people become better athletes is something I take great pride in. My coaching philosophy is one of simplicity and hard work, with an intense focus on having fun. I also strive to explain things as best I can.

Rhianon Schuman

Coach + Founder

I started my athletic journey as a competitive swimmer, and competed as a D-I athlete at DU. I was exposed to Olympic Lifting through CrossFit, which I have coached for over 4 years, but always loved the lifting piece just a bit more. I love DBC because you get stronger and you get to socialize at the same time!


David Willenbrink


I got into weightlifting 2 years ago when my college roommate started dragging me along to train with him. I continued weightlifting because I like how the sport integrates the mind and body. I love coaching at DBC because I am constantly learning new things about the sport, and I get to help others develop their skills as weightlifters.


Madeline Wood


I slowly started getting into weightlifting as a transition away from powerlifting several years ago. I trained mostly out of my garage until I moved to Denver where I found DBC and ultimately took the plunge into full on weightlifting training. I also own my own chiropractic clinic, so when it comes to coaching, injury prevention, biomechanics, and simplicity in teaching concepts are my focus.

Feel free to email, call, or visit to ask us any questions about our club and how we can help you reach your goals!

getting started

We would love to have you join us at Denver Barbell Club. We welcome people of all fitness levels because we believe everyone can benefit from strength training. There are two ways to get started at the Denver Barbell Club.

We hold two technique clinics per month that take place on the first and third Saturdays from 8am to 9am. The first Saturday will focus on Snatch and the third on Clean & Jerk. Once you attend at least one technique clinic, we will put you on a beginners program that will get you familiar with all the movements we perform. The cost of each class is $30 in addition to the monthly membership. Please email us at to reserve a spot.

If you would like a more private, focused introduction to the lifts, we also offer one-on-one or small group personal training to teach you all the lifts you need to know, after which you can comfortably transition to our coaching hours. Please see pricing above.
