Powerlifting at Northumbria is a fun and rewarding sport with a close community of passionate people. We welcome all abilities to join in our training sessions, whether you’re an experienced lifter or you have never lifted before.

Whilst we learn and improve at our weekly sessions, the club also have a vibrant social life where we plan activities, events and spontaneous trips. We train over four sessions a week splitting them into two advanced and two beginners sessions.

For those of you that have never heard of Powerlifting before, it is a form of competitive weightlifting in which contestants attempt three types of lifts in a set sequence.
