About Us

Brunel's Olympic lifting society is a welcoming community of gym fanatics and new fitness enthusiasts. It is open to all students with any background of gym experience.


Brunel Weightlifting Club is open to everyone, from complete novices to advanced lifters. We currently have a range of athletes from Great Britain Squad members to regional and club level lifters, and offer coaching advice for all levels.

Running regular sessions in the IAC, we encourage students to train together and develop their skills in olympic lifting.

Our aim is to build a successful weightlifting team at Brunel, competing at a range of competitions from varsity to national competitions such as BUCs. We are coached by Commonwealth Medalist Jessica Brown & English championships medalist Steve Bestman who both have a great deal of knowledge and have helped Brunel lifters achieve great results.

Our Chairman Steve and coach Jessica are open to being asked questions on social media via instagram: @steve_b__wl & @jessicagordonbrown or you can ask the club directly via instagram: @brunelwl




If you have any feedback or queries regarding the club please message our instagram @brunelwl or contact the committee members directly via WhatsApp

All are always welcome to come along and watch and chat with regular club members.
