About Weightlifting

Who are we?

We are Coventry University Weightlifting Club, a club for anyone interesting in becoming stronger both physically and mentally.

What do we do?

At CUWLC, we have created a community that provides support and guidance for those passionate about any and all forms of weightlifting - powerlifting, bodybuilding, olympic weightlifting or calisthenics.

Why should you join?

The community! In previous years, we have run 1-2 training sessions a week at Wildcard Strength and Conditioning, providing members with a space for some healthy competition, but mainly an environment to better themselves and encourage others to do the same. Our coaches have years of experience working with individuals and groups, from beginners to advanced athletes, and are already writing powerlifting, weightlifting, CrossFit and bodybuilding programs for our members to use from September - these will be available to all members whether we can train as a club or not!

What have we done in the past?

Our club was founded in 2016, and since then we have gone from strength to strength, competing in team events like Mass Wars and Varsity against Warwick University, as well as many members competing - and medalling - individually in powerlifting, weightlifting, bodybuilding and CrossFit.

We have organised a trip to the Body Power Expo every year so far, and hope to continue this tradition this year, as well as continuing to organise other group trips to bodybuilding shows, lifting events and travelling to support our members at their competitions.

We hold socials every week, alternating between alcoholic and non-alcoholic events to cater for all our members, some of these have included themed socials like 'Cops and Robbers' or 'Tight and Bright', or laser tag and club meals to ensure everyone can benefit from the social side of our club.
