  • Lakeside Community Weightlifting

    We believe in delivering quality, fun, and affordable coaching in Olympic weightlifting, and powerlifting for the community.

    We support both children and adults looking to learn, and develop their ability, strength, and confidence in these exciting, and rapidly growing sports.

    We offer the opportunity to learn the basics, develop your technique and strength, and if you so wish a pathway into competitive lifting at all levels.

  • Why Weightlifting?

    Lifting is fun, whilst being physically and mentally challenging. Lifting makes you stronger, leaner, and faster. Lifting improves your health markers and improves your abilities to be stronger at other sports too.

    Our lifters tell us they feel more powerful; have better balance, mobility and technical precision, but also report having more sleep, energy and confidence too.

    We believe coaching the basic principles of Olympic weightlifting and powerlifting allow you to connect your mind with your body, to help you find your strength.

Lakeside WL Club founded by head coach Lizzie Havers, a British Weightlifting coach, personal trainer and international level masters weightlifting athletes is still competing herself and has developed and produced new and established lifters to competition from regional to national level for over seven years.

Lizzie coaches’ private clients, and sports teams, in strength and conditioning as well as delivering satellite club solutions for local schools and colleges in coaching Weightlifting.  In a bid to reach out and teach more people in the community about the amazing benefits of weightlifting. 

Lakeside Weightlifting is the hub for lifters in the south. A membership-based club, offering group and individual training sessions for children and adults from 8-80 years old.

We are affiliated and licensed with British Weightlifting (NGB) and are awarded the status of ‘Talent Academy’ (one of only 5 clubs nationally) for our work with developing youths into GB Weightlifting pathways and offering best practice coaching.  All our coaches are BWL accredited and are DBS checked.
