The University of Birmingham Weightlifting club is an inclusive and welcoming sports club. We offer the opportunity for athletes to excel within weightlifting, as well new members to enjoy and improve at the sport.
We have two British Weightlifting qualified coaches who train our athletes 3 times a week. These sessions are held in the Sport & Fitness dedicated Performance Gym, using the exceptional programmes created by our coaches.
We have multiple lifters performing at high levels, including two 2023 British Champions and many other National medal-winning athletes.
Through our inclusive environment, we highly encourage beginners to join – whether you have never touched a barbell before or have been going to the gym for years! Our dedicated coaches are highly skilled to allow all club members to learn & excel in the weightlifting movements.
