Good Lifting gym around Oklahoma City

Hey all, I'm looking at moving into Oklahoma City in a few months, and I was wondering if anyone knew of any good weightlifting/ powerlifting gyms around. I know there's a couple of boxes, but the couple I tried going to back in TN weren't very conducive to heavy lifting (all long metcons).

I remember reading a year or two back that Shane Hamman(sp) was working with a rowing club out there. Don't know if he is still there or not, but he was a high level powerlifter turned high level oly lifter.

That's awesome! I did some searching and he's apparently training out of a gym in Tulsa. Might have to make a trip or two out there, but it's almost 2 hours away. Hopefully I can find something a little closer.

Re: Good Lifting gym around Oklahoma City

I knew about Shane at the Boathouse gym, but I waited too long and never went. I've been meaning to see if the Boathouse still has the oly lifting equipment. They supposedly had an actual competing team during the time Shane was there. Don't know if they still do.

A while back I searched for local oly lifting gyms. At that time there was someone in Norman that had a small gym (probably wfs but not sure. www.metroweightlifting.com might be it, but I can't access the site at work) and there is a place in Moore (USA Stars- also teaches martial arts, MMA)
