The only UCL sports club to provide one-on-one coaching to all its members, UCL Barbell is the center of all things strength training and fitness on campus.
If you want to compete or just take your training to the next level, we will assign you a coach who takes care of technique and programming for the entire year, for just £60!
The club caters both to competing athletes, those wishing to learn and progress in a new sport and anyone who wants to get fitter and stronger! Our members currently train and compete across the strength disciplines of powerlifting, weightlifting, strongman and CrossFit, as well as those who train for aesthetics and bodybuilding. We also support the average gymgoer who wants to use strength training to progress in their own sport, or for general wellbeing.
We offer training sessions, seminars, competitions (Novice Comp, Varsity Series, BUCS) and events throughout the year, providing opportunities for novices and senior members alike.
Members benefit from the wealth of knowledge and experience from our highly qualified coaching teams in both weightlifting and powerlifting, headed by Adam Warwicker (owner of North London Weightlifting Club and BWL Instructor) and Saadat Wadud (BPL certified).
