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. 

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.

All club training has now ceased for 2023/24. Students enquiring about joining the club in 2024/25 season can contact the Club Committee via email or instagram. 2024/25 memberships will be available to purchase from September 2024.

Available Powerlifting Memberships in 2024/25:

"TRAIN"   £100  

Tuesdays 18:00-20:00, Thursdays 19:30-21:30  - S&C Suite Sport Central

This membership offers regular coached sessions for students interested in gaining lifting skills without the competitive element.
