We are a club for those with a passion for strength-sports, we mostly cater for Powerlifting and Olympic Weightlifting, but no matter your experience or what sort of strength training you do, we'd love to see you- even if you just want some friends to train with in the gym!
Experience and strength are not important – we love to see progress. So, whether you are brand new and are interested in learning more, or have been doing this a while – we welcome members of all skill levels.
As a central hub, we aim to motivate and enthuse our members toward consistent training and progression through our wealth of events. Through technique-based workshops and lifestyle seminars, we aim to provide a solid base leading to internal and varsity competitions, regional competition and BUCS in both Powerlifting and Olympic Weightlifting.
We train in the Warwick Sport gym on WEDNESDAYs 1-4pm and SATURDAYs at 12-2pm, here you can ask any questions regarding the best ways to improve and we will be more than happy to help. Further, you are given the opportunity to meet new people in the gym to make training an even more enjoyable experience.
We also have coached Olympic Weightlifting sessions on Thursday and Friday evenings.
Throughout term 1 we will be offering members powerlifting programmes for beginners and intermediates, as well of a wealth of information and introduction to lifting videos on our website and social media – so make sure you follow us! Keep a watch out on our social media for Welcome Week and Week 1 Introduction events!
Our weekly socials (both sober and drinking) are a great place to meet new people and to form friendships - anyone is welcome!

*Due to COVID-19 restrictions, sport club training isn’t permitted until November. Therefore, in the meantime we will be allocating people into small training groups so new members can meet and train with some of our older members instead of our Wednesday and Saturday sessions*
