CJ Gotcher

BLOC Exclusive Coach, Academy Director, PBC •

CJ is the Director of the Barbell Academy and an Exclusive Coach.

CJ has a diverse athletic background, having competed in Cross Country, Soccer, Tae Kwon Do Obstacle Course Racing, and currently Powerlifting.

He started coaching as a Physical Training Officer at the United States Naval Academy, helping midshipmen prepare for the Physical Readiness Test and service selection tests before serving seven years as a Naval Surface Warfare Officer. There, he took on a variety of roles, including leading a Visit, Board, Search, and Seizure team and serving as an operations support officer with SEAL Team 8.

Since completing his service in 2015, CJ started coaching full-time with CrossFit 760 and independently coaching lifters to reach their barbell and calisthenics strength goals. CJ joined Barbell Logic in 2016 as a staff coach, began teaching Academy classes in 2018, and became the Academy Director in 2020.

CJ sees barbell training as a way to serve and support a person’s deep why in sport, mission, and life. His mission is to pay it forward, helping passionate lifters make the leap into coaching—learning the right skills and reaching the right audience—to spread the benefits of greater strength and resilience to those they serve.
