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.


Jaclyn Gochoco

Remote Coach

Five years ago, I picked up a barbell and never looked back. I am passionate about teaching Olympic weightlifting to others and encouraging more women to find their strength through the sport. I am a certified Traditional Hatha Yoga teacher and believe yoga and weightlifting go hand in hand! I love coaching at DBC because I get to work with athletes all over the world via our remote coaching programs and always have the best home team to come back too!

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.

For individuals with no experience with Olympic Weightlifting, we do a one-on-one technique clinic to familiarize you with movements and teach you the vocab. Once completed you will be put on a beginners program that will get you familiar with all the movements we perform. The cost of the session is $30 in addition to the monthly membership. Please email us at [email protected] to schedule your session. If you have a CrossFit background or have done Olympic Lifting in the past, but are just a tad rusty; you are welcome to drop into any of our coaching hours to check out the gym.
