Happiest birthday to our Social Sec, resident weapon and rave pistol extraordinaire .hench πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ‘†πŸ»πŸ₯³



What’s being said here between and at our last Powerlifting competition?



Our first and most requested seminar is on the 5th May! Limited spaces so get booked via the link.


Absolutely gutted to hear of Phil Richard passing. A true legend of Powerlifting and an absolute gent.

Only got the pleasure of meeting him a couple of times but he’s left a real impression on me and I’m sure I speak for the rest of the Powerlifting world when I say he’ll be sorely missed.

RIP Phil, thank you for everything πŸ’”πŸ’ͺ🏻



Still spaces for our summer divisional! Open for all (with membership!)

This year is our 3rd year running this event and it’s going to be bigger, better and more obnoxious than before!!!

Looking forward to seeing you there πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ‘ŠπŸ»


As we close the door on 2023, we’d like to take a minute to thank everyone who has been a part of Red Beard Barbell Club in the last year, from our incredible members who turn up and slog out in the name of strength week in, week out, to everyone that has competed at our competitions through the year, from the drop in session users to the spectators who make all of the noise at comps to get the athletes those all important kilos!

Going into 2024 we’ve got big plans to get bigger and better, stronger and faster and ultimately just better than ever before!

2024 marks 5 years since opening our doors in our own premises, and the next 5 years are looking incredible, even if we do say so ourselves!!

With that in mind, we look forward to seeing more of you through the barn doors and at competitions and generally just being your badass self through 2024!

Happy new year, from all of us here at Red Beard Barbell Club πŸ’ͺ🏻πŸ₯³


Come and join us to mark 5 years since we opened our doors!
It’s been an interesting 5 years, we’ve grown a lot and learned a lot along the way, but we’re still going and still growing!

9-11 open morning to come and try us out, play with the kit, meet some of the lunatics that train here and fall in love with lifting πŸ’ͺ🏻

See you then


Merry Christmas one and all!

May your drinks be stiff and your lifts heavy for 2024 πŸ₯ƒπŸ’ͺ🏻


Open 9-11 Christmas Day to welcome any and all weary lifters who couldn’t give a rats toe about finding myrrh but rather gains fuelled by pigs in blankets!

*bring your own pigs in blankets


6 women in heels holding up a 120kg idiot… what could go wrong!?

Nothing!! They’re strong as f**k because they train at RBBC πŸ’ͺ🏻πŸ’ͺ🏻πŸ’ͺ🏻

Oh, and Owen up front for some insuranceπŸ˜‚

Awesome night at with this mob, sadly we didn’t win, but proud all the same to be in the 7 best Strength Training Gyms in the UK!

Now, tux away, shorts back on, let’s go lift πŸ’ͺ🏻πŸ₯°

Huge shout to for not only putting on a hell of a performance this weekend at T&S, but also for handling me on Sunday!

One of the greatest joys I get as a coach is getting my athletes through comps and seeing results, the feeling of seeing someone who you’ve seen week in week out out the effort in and it paying off on comp day is unrivalled! It’s always a β€˜pinch me’ moment that I get to call this work, and I f**king love it!!

Still a couple of spaces available for online coaching, and plenty of space for 1-2-1 and club coaching, get in touch if you’re after strength like you’ve never had before or if you just want to feel the buzz that comes with doing something you’ve never done before, I’d love to help! πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»
