Powerlifting & Weightlifting

What we’re all about

LiftSoc are one of LUU's newest societies and we are all about Powerlifting & Weightlifting. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned lifter, we provide a supportive environment where everyone can learn from each other. So if you've never picked up a weight before, don't worry, because we're here to help.


We offer multiple training sessions every week, all included in the cost of standard membership. Coached trainings at The Edge will be held multiple times per week and you don't even need a gym membership or sports pass to attend! We're always looking to expand our opportunities for our members.


Sometimes we run Q&A style meetings on various topics related to the sport, such as programming, diet & supplements, equipment, competition and more. We also hold an AGM and Prize Giving each year to celebrate achievements and give everyone a chance to have their say on where the club goes next.


Socials come in many forms - from pub crawls to pizza nights to pool. Keep up to date on the latest events and meet ups through the Facebook page. We also offer internal competitions each semester so you can try it out in a fun environment with our support.


We're one of the cheapest sports clubs in Leeds - buy a year membership and you're ready to go. No session fees and no gym membership required for students.


We aim to send full teams to big competitions every year. If you are interested in getting to test your best in front of everyone, we're happy to help. Join our legacy of competitors of all levels, from internal competitions for beginners that we host each semester, right up to our world championship lifters.
