Welcome to Powerlifting!

Powerlifting is a strength sport with a focus on the Squat, the Bench Press, and the Deadlift. It is a great sport to introduce people to strength exercise.

Sadly, while the new University gym is still being constructed we are unable to offer our usual training sessions.


Currently, we offer the following to our members:

  • Two programmes for new and returning lifters that were created by a licensed PT
  • Coaching at a reduced rate from licensed PT and former club member Mario Van Der Westhuizen
  • Highly reduced membership fee
  • Access to our messenger group chat

Please note, what we are able to offer as a club is subject to change with the completion of the new University gym facilities.
