Leicester Olympic Weightlifting Club is a weightlifting club based in The BOXHQ which is located near the centre of Leicester, 20 minutes from Leicester train station, with easy access off the B5366.

The facility caters for all ages and abilities and provides coaching from absolute beginners to elite level in weightlifting.

Formulation coaching divides the beginners into in-house programming within the club. There is no need to commit to competing in the spirit of weightlifting but should you wish to, we have a carefully set-up process to guide and introduce you to various levels of competition.

We have two coaches available at our club; headed up by Coach Andy whom is a BWL (British Weightlifting Organinsation) Club Coach.
