We also boast 2 British Champion Alumni, and also a deadlift world record holder, as well as multiple individual lift podium medals.
All experience levels and abilities are welcomed and encouraged to join the club. Whether you are interested in meeting new people and having a great time or the competitive aspect of the sport, we welcome you here at UoN Powerlifting - the strongest team in the University.
On this page, you'll find information regarding joining the club, training, socials, news updates and more.
A club membership is required to be part of UoN powerlifting. Membership fees for the club are £40 for the 20/21 academic year. This allows the club to organise various social events including team meals, seminars with top athletes/ leading experts during the year and more. Membership provides discounted team training sessions at a local powerlifting gym with competition specification equipment, kindly made available to club at exclusive hours from other users. Members of the club are also given access to our detailed Club Program, written by an experienced coach. Programming information workshops will take place and advice from other experienced lifters is available.
If you would like more in depth attention to aid your development, there is the option to purchase our ‘Coaching add-on’ which will give you online access to our coach who will guide you through your program, form, etc, during a set time slot each week.
You only need to purchase a David Ross Sports and Fitness membership if you intend to make use of the University facilities.
UPON PURCHASE OF MEMBERSHIP PLEASE REQUEST TO JOIN OUR CLOSED ‘MEMBERS ONLY’ FACEBOOK GROUP
During the week the majority of our members can be found training individually at a number of gyms including at the David Ross Sport Village, Jubilee Campus Gym, Nottingham Strong, Puregym, and others. Team Training is held at Nottingham Strong on either a weekly or fortnightly basis depending on the proximity to competitions. Updates on times and schedules can be found in our Facebook group.
All of our clubs and societies are run by a committee.
A committee is a team of people that lead, organise and publicise a group within your Students’ Union.
It can be really rewarding as well as being a great way to gain experience and invaluable skills for your future career.
