About


  • Who we are
    • We are a collective of strength coaches and lifters that are passionate about sharing the art of strength training in an accessible, inclusive and communal form. We started Woodbine Strength to create an environment that exists beyond the limitations of status-quo gym culture. We operate out of Woodbine, an experimental hub in Ridgewood, Queens. 

  • What we do 
    • We offer open gym hours every day of the week where you are always lifting with other community members. We train collectively because we believe physical activity has the power to strengthen connections with each other in addition to one’s own body.
    • Two nights a week nationally certified strength coaches are available to provide training guidance and there is also a women + non-binary exclusive hour. (See link below for all hours and sign up sheet) 

  • Why it matters
    • The training we offer serves as preventative healthcare for our community and is financially accessible through our donation-based model. In a system hellbent on making us sick and alienated, our gym is a step toward taking the physical and mental health of our community into our own hands. 

  • How to get involved 
    • Come lift or simply move your body with us! The gym is maintained through the support of our lifters and surrounding community. Donations ensure that we are able to keep this space alive and ever-improving as a means towards greater community health and autonomy. All donations are tax deductible!

Coached Hours:
Tuesday 6-8 PM
Thursday 6-8 PM (7-8 PM Women + Non-Binary Hour)
