Powerlifting is a strength sport that consists of 3 movements; the squat, the bench press, and the deadlift.
Each of these movements use multiple muscle groups and can be used to accelerate raw strength in any lifter regardless of experience!
Powerlifting is one of the most accessible sports to get into. Once you’ve got a grasp of the basics you can pretty much head to your first competition.
The community is diverse, with people from all walks of life creating a sense of inclusivity.
Get strong as hell!
Proven to improve all aspects of strength, increase bone and joint health, improve blood flow and develop a stronger heart, increase confidence, better self-awareness – then there’s the mental benefits like improving self-esteem, providing a stress release and surrounding yourself with like-minded people.
Weightlifting is a power sport which consists of the snatch, and the clean and jerk movements.
These movements have been used in strength & conditioning centres around the world for decades to improve athletes capacity to generate force and move quickly. Weightlifting has become increasingly popular of late due to the rise of CrossFit.
Anyone can do weightlifting, although the entry level can seem higher due to the focus on technical mastery.
Once you get it though you won’t look back, and similar to powerlifting the community in weightlifting is friendly and inclusive.
Get explosive strength!
Weightlifting is a power sport, which means you’ll be learning how to move heavy weight, fast.
You’ll pack on muscle and be able to accelerate faster whether you’re moving weights or on the track and field.
Strongman is a strength and power sport where athletes lift objects by any means necessary. We’ve all seen World’s Strongest Man, events can range from lifting the heaviest weight possible, doing the most amount of reps, or taking an object from A to B in the shortest amount of time.
All of this makes strongman such a versatile sport and surefire way to accelerate strength.
There’s a misconception that you need to be of a certain size or strength to be able to do strongman – that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Strongman is for everybody.
Some of the strongest people we have in the gym are 60KG women who are lifting beyond their own bodyweight in events like stones and yoke walks!
Apart from being able to single handedly help your friends move house?!
Strongman is the silver-bullet to packing on raw strength and developing power.
Strongman actually requires good endurance capabilities too; distance events, maximum repetitions, and medleys all require a level of fitness to complete.
Yep, you read that right – it’s only a quid!
