Nicholas Pasquariello is the owner of Cedar Street Barbell, a current member of the USA Powerlifting Organization, and a USAPL Club Coach. After spending years in commercial gyms with no strength programs and a “one-size-fits-all” model, he learned that strength results come on an individualized basis with an athlete's individual goals in mind. His love and passion for powerlifting begun after seeing a huge increase in not only his strength and mobility, but also his overall self-confidence while under the wing of his coach at North Barbell, located in North Philly. Through the support and guidance of the North Barbell community, Nick began competing as well as earning his coaching certification. 

Realizing how powerlifting could not only change his life for the better but the lives of others, he decided to take the leap and open up Cedar Street Barbell in May of 2018. Coach Nick's goal is to make the sport of powerlifting more approachable and less intimidating for both men and women, while also helping members achieve their own strength training goals.
