RWF Gym is owned and run by two competing powerlifters. Both Derran and Tim compete within the BDFPA at regional and National level, and James also competes to the same standard – between us we have a wealth of experience in the sport. If you’re in Nottingham and want to get strong, we’re the place to visit.

Powerlifting at the Gym

The gym is set up to be very supportive of all goals, and especially powerlifting. So, you’ll find Eleiko plates and bars, Rogue Ohio bars, deadlift bars, 10 sturdy squat racks, four deadlift platforms, 5 competition-style, IPF standard bench press stations as well as all the bands, speciality bars and additional kit needed for the sport.

We run loads of competitions, both official meets with the BDFPA, and friendlies. To see when our next competitions are, please click here.

We’d love to get more people into the sport – male and female (it’s a sport that is massively growing for female competitors) – so if you’d like to get started, come and say hello.

Even if you’re already competing, we think you’ll find the RWF Gym much more conducive to your training than a typical commercial gym. Both equipped and non-equipped lifters are welcome. The only requirement we have is that all gym members are drug-free – we don’t accept gym members that use performance enhancing drugs. To read more on this, please see our ethos
