About BC Strength Training
Strength coaching and personal training based in Washington DC
About Bryan Crossley, MS
Washington DC Strength Trainer
I grew up in Williamsport, PA (home of the Little League World Series!) where I played baseball and was involved in fitness from a very young age. It was from this background that my passion for strength training developed.
Prior to earning a Masters Degree in Kinesiology, I played Division 1 baseball at Coppin State University. During this experience, I realized that having a foundation based in strength was essential. It became evident to me that my passion and priority for strength training was granting me the ability to remain injury-free and reach my absolute potential. This principle applies to all of us.
Maybe, for you, it’s not baseball. Maybe it’s playing with your kids, standing up from the floor without struggle, or just a general ability to move more freely. That’s what I am here to help you with.
My goal is to provide you with the foundation that your body requires to be strong. From this strength comes your ability to move. From this movement, you enjoy a life that is as comfortable and injury-free as possible.
“My goal is to work together to teach you the right techniques and programming to get you stronger.”

One-on-One Personal Training Services
Work with a certified personal trainer to reach your health and fitness goals, lose weight, get stronger, and learn best practices for weight lifting.
Physical Training for all Fitness levels
My job as a strength coach is to provide organization to an otherwise very overwhelming process. When you tell me what YOUR goals, YOUR priorities, and YOUR needs are, I develop a program tailored to those specifics. Then you just have to show up, be coached, and start getting stronger. You may be a former athlete or you may have never lifted a weight in your life — the starting point is always the same: show me where you’re starting at, explain to me where you want to be, and I’ll plan out the rest for you.

Beyond personal training.
Our new program, Stratified Strength, is not for your average gym-goer. This specialized program is a 3-month strength training AND nutrition program designed to teach you the tools you will need to maintain your strength and nutrition on your own. This offer is not right for everyone. Stratified Strength is high-touch and will require committment and a strong desire to learn. Space is limited.
We have a program for that too. Learn more.

If you want a simple, build-your-own program with a training plan and exercise suggestions, my 12-Week Foundational Weight Training Program is it. Pair the program with my Fitness Log Book, and you’ll be well on your way to better health and stronger muscles.

Highly recommended personal trainer!
I started training with Bryan a couple years ago one day per week but his program made me feel so strong and gain more focus in my life that I now train with him four day a week.
Bryan has a really good routine for me and I don’t have to put thought on my own to exercise thanks to Bryan. I find myself having better posture and more energy throughout the day.
Because I raved so much about how good Bryan is at his craft, my wife Sophie started training with him about a year ago. Last month my parents started working with Bryan too.
Highly recommended personal trainer!
highly personalized workout
I have been training with Bryan for over 5 years and could not be happier with my experience. Bryan designs a highly personalized workout, focuses on form and technique as much as (if not more) than the number of pounds lifted, and delivers amazing progress. Bryan has also assembled an amazing outdoor lifting facility that is highly appreciated (and necessary) in this time of Covid. And Bryan’s personality ensures a most enjoyable workout environment. I highly recommend him!
high quality equipment and good coaching
motivated me to work past my strength weaknesses
challenge yourself and have fun at the same time
Bryan won’t BS you. He tells you it how it is, and he will tailor fit a program that is unique to your needs. I also like that he focuses on movement patterns and takes a kinesiological approach to strength training. This is very important because it helps to avoid injury.
Over the course of these past 3 months, I’ve met with Bryan at a rate of 4x a week. He’s trained me to be much stronger, and I’ve reached weight lifting goals that I could not have imagined coming into this. I also feel and look much better than I did coming in.
As I finish this Summer, Bryan has proved not only a great personal trainer, but also a friend. He’s a really chill guy. You will challenge yourself and have fun at the same time.
You can’t go wrong with BC Strength Training! Do it!
strongly recommend Bryan as a personal trainer
looking forward to every workout
As an avid ice hockey player, athlete and fitness professional myself, I can vouch for Bryan’s expertise and knowledge as a personal trainer. He listens to my goals, creates a thoughtful exercise plan to achieve them, and is excellent at evaluating and teaching proper movement and form. He is very receptive to feedback, keeps our sessions challenging without overdoing it, and stays focused and attentive when we work together. On top this, he has a fun, friendly and non-judgmental demeanor – all of which keep me looking forward to every workout. I would highly recommend Bryan to anyone from beginners to trained athletes!
the most knowledgeable, effective and consistent
knowledgeable about exercise science, physiology, and nutrition
Not only do I look better, I feel better
Unlike some personal trainers, Bryan does not give the same basic workout to every person. He individualizes your workout plan based upon your body and your goals. He explains each exercise so you know why you’re doing it and how to do it. Not only do I look better, I feel better. I have bought packages with Bryan for both of my parents and would highly recommend him to anyone serious about their fitness.
