Welcome to the Club

Hi there! We are a small lifting club based in Loughborough, affiliated with British Weightlifting.

Our main focus is to help build knowledge, confidence and participation within the two sports we love; Olympic Weightlifting and Powerlifting.


We pride ourselves on delivering the techniques needed for people to perform the movements safely and efficiently. We provide a safe training environment in which everyone is enjoying themselves, is allowed to be themselves and most importantly to be a part of an amazing community.

This is where we differ from commercial gyms, there’s no pressure to feel macho, and no judgement if you don’t know what you’re doing. Lifting is a learning experience, and we support each other on that journey.

Such a friendly club! loaded with equipment, great atmosphere! Coaching staff are so friendly and helpful, all levels of lifters there and everybody has a blast. Great etiquette around equipment cleaning and tidying away and can have music on and go nuts when you need to! Love it!

Absolutely love our club, it feels like we are a little community. Everyone always supports and celebrates everyones achievements. All goals are different and our awesome coach adapts to what your individual goals are. It's great because you can just Olympic lift, powerlift or do a bit of both.
