Introducing UCL Barbell Club: UCL's premier strength sports and fitness society.

The club caters both to competing athletes, and those wishing to learn and progress in a new sport. Our members currently train and compete across the strength disciplines of powerlifting, weightlifting and strongman, 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 (rugby, rowing, taekwondo etc), or for general wellbeing.

We offer training sessions, seminars, competitions and events throughout the year, providing opportunities for novices and senior members alike.

Members benefit from the wealth of knowledge and experience from our qualified coaches in both weightlifting and powerlifting.

Tier 1 Membership gives you access to all of our events and workshops and template programmes.

Tier 2 Membership gives you access to all of our events and workshops, as well as personalised programming and coaching.
