We are the Barbell Babes Brigade
Women’s strength and conditioning training designed to uplift you in every way
We’re a community of females focused on empowering our women to unleash their true capabilities, inside and outside the gym.
Located in Heidelberg West, Melbourne, Barbell Babes Brigade supports the community to create healthy, positive relationships with their body. We celebrate your physical and emotional achievements through effective strength training (who hasn’t cried after a set?).
Our ladies are strong in mind and body!
We’ve trained women of all shapes, sizes and backgrounds. This created the foundation for
our signature training systems which blend the core fundamentals of strength and conditioning with our own BBB sass. What our babes love most is the feeling of empowerment, support and the constant education we provide. This helps you to continually progress in overall performance. It’s also how we’re able to consistently provide life changing results in both body composition and mental strength.
More than building muscle.
Did you know that lifting weights is often the catalyst for change? It forces us to face the things we often shy away from.
When we approach the bar for a max lift, we confront our confidence (or sometimes, a lack of). When we can’t be bothered training, we have to learn to show up and put in the work.
In moments of doubt, we have two choices:
- We walk away and give up, never knowing what we might have achieved.
- We make a decision to say YES, I’m going to try, even if it means I might fail.
Lifting forces us to trust the process and put in the work. It’s the catalyst we thrive on to make the changes that create who we are! We’re strong women not because of the weight we lift. But because of the qualities we forge under the barbell.
The strength at our core.
What makes Barbell Babes Brigade such a successful force? Our gym was founded on six core values:
1. Strive for progress not perfection.
2. Empower others and enable greatness
3. Small steps daily
4. Respect yourself and those around you
5. Run your own race
6. Passion. Always put your full ass into everything you do.
We promise to always be guided by them to provide the best experience for our babes. Along with our six core values, we shape the Brigade around three essential ideals:
We’re going to be blunt with you when you need it. We’ll be honest about your performance if we can tell you’re doing it half-arsed. We’ll also take responsibility if we make a mistake. You’ll get nothing but the real deal with BBB.
Like the three musketeers, we hold the belief of all for one and one for all.
When you train, the other babes are there cheering you on. When you’ve had a rough day, they’ll listen and wipe your tears. We celebrate every triumph together and we’ve got your back in the hard times too.
Sure, we teach you all the technical stuff. But who said learning has to be a drag?
BBB is about embracing your crazy. We want you to feel comfortable being you uncensored self. We laugh, snort and roar together, that’s just who we are
Women In Strength
While running her strength training gym, Barbell Babes Brigade, Ro saw other women burst into the fitness industry. Hoping to start their own coaching businesses and create a happy life for themselves. But their hopes and dreams of a fulfilling business were quickly smashed.
They came to Ro, sharing their frustration, loneliness and telling her how overwhelmed they felt. Listening to these strong, capable women confess how awful they felt made Ro angry and determined.
She had the skills and knowledge to help them break free and find triumph. They needed her guidance and she needed to start a revolution in the fitness industry. So, she created Women in Strength, a mentoring business for fitness and health coaches. Shaping all of her skills, industry knowledge and experience to create coaching packages designed for you. Plus, you won’t have to work through it alone. As you learn each step of how to build a thriving fitness business, Ro will be guiding and supporting you along the way.
