Hi everyone, I'm Tara. I joined Barbell in my first year of uni and throughout my time in the club I have made so many friends, had some great experiences and was helped to improve my lifting so much. Barbell is for everyone regardless of experience and you can really feel the sense of community and support within the club. This is why I love Warwick Barbell and am so happy to be a part of it.

Hi I’m Maciek. I like to lift because I love the feeling of getting stronger and it is a great way to escape stress and worries of daily life. My favourite thing about barbell is the people.

Hi, I'm Alex and I'm a 4th year Computer Science student. I've been powerlifting since I joined Barbell when I started at Warwick, and have seen the club grow massively over that time, both in terms of people competiting and the social aspect of the club. My job is to organise competitions, but I want to remind people they don't have to compete just because they join, our non-competitive portion is the majority.

When I joined Barbell in my first year, I would have never thought I would be where I am today. Barbell has encouraged me to feel more strong and powerful than ever. I have made amazing friends who support me through every day, and through my role I wish to empower people to push themselves, try something new and get involved in the wonderful world of lifting!

Hi, I’m Liam, and I have one regret at university, which is not joining barbell sooner! I’ve made some amazing friends from this club and in terms of progressing in lifting the atmosphere is really encouraging. Whether your goal is to get bigger, stronger or just healthier there is always someone in the gym that can keep you company.
