The University of Queensland Powerlifting and Weightlifting Club


Welcome to the UQPWC Member Registration website

The UQ Powerlifting and Weightlifting Club (UQPWC) Inc. is located on the edge of the University of Queensland, St Lucia Campus in Brisbane.  At the club we specialise in teaching the powerlifting movements (squat, benchpress and deadlift) for competition and for others who want to improve their strength for other sports or for personal fitness.

Membership to UQPWC is open to the general public. The club's gym is easily accessible by public transport (bus and ferry) and within easy walking distance from the University of Queensland.

The club's gym contains a range of equipment: olympic weights and bars, three carpeted lifting platforms, ER Squat racks, dumbbells, bench press, incline bench press, power rack, seated row, lat pull down, glute ham raise machine, resistance bands, and heavy chains just to name a few.

Joining the club is easy, complete the online membership application form and then pay at the gym or pay by internet bank transfer.  Our qualified strength and conditioning coaches and powerlifting coaches provide tuition and instruction to all members.  For beginners we can teach you the correct technique and provide a training program. If you have some experience and wish to enter your first powerlifting competition, we can provide guidance and assistance.
