About Us

Welcome to Brunel Powerlifting!

 

Striving for strength, performance, and enjoyment throughout the sport of powerlifting, Brunel Powerlifting Club welcomes all experiences levels. From complete novices, or elite level athletes, all ability levels are welcome!

Our club creates a platform which enables members to achieve their full potential. Enabling members to reach the full capability of their body, and beyond!

Powerlifting is considered the true test of absolute human strength. Through three disciplines: Squat, Bench, and Deadlift, participants push themselves to achieve the greatest overall total of the three disciplines, by testing their maximum single repetition weight in each discipline (1RM). Brunel University operates excellent facilities, of which all Powerlifting Club members have access to. Which contain world class equipment, allowing training even at the international level!

Our club was established in 2022, which means we are new to Team Brunel. But don’t let this lessen your expectations of what our club can currently provide! We have an extremely ambitious committee, and we would like to outline our clubs’ objectives…

 

 

Club Objectives:

  1. Provide an ecosystem of members which inspire each other, for the common goal of improvement within the sport, and overall life.
  2. Enable training, which shall be a platform for growth for all members, intended for elite athletes or barbell newbies, and everyone in between.
  3. Spread the enjoyment for powerlifting, inspiring the core values of strength training into all members.
  4. Pushing for university representation, throughout the local level of competition, varsity, nationally, and for those of elite calibre to be on the international stage representing the nation!
  5. Lastly, to have fun!

We are not all about training though! You’ll be glad to hear that we are running social events here on campus, evenings together within The Venue + Locos (campus club and bar), days out in London and beyond, with the overall goal to enjoy what university life has to offer. We are looking to venture nationally to other university teams running mock meets (mini competitions), where our rivalry shall be put to the test!

 

 

Are you looking for:

  • A sporting challenge

  • World class training facilities

  • Friends to share your time at Brunel with

  • Unique experiences throughout university

Then Brunel Powerlifting Club is for YOU!
