Shire Speed and Strength has the only weightlifting team in Sydney’s southern suburbs.



The team competes under the NSW Weightlifting Association (NSWWA) and Australian Weightlifting Federation (AWF) governance. People who wish to improve their lifting, or learn to install lifting skills from scratch are welcome. Those who wish to compete in Olympic Weightlifting with the gym’s team should also contact us to inquire. Nearly all of the SSS lifting team started at the gym as novices having not lifted before either recreationally or competitively.



Members of the weightlifting team receive coaching and programming as part of being members of the gym. There are no team training times as lifters are encouraged to train at times that best suit their schedule. This also can make coaching easier for an on going 1 on 1 basis which is a part of being a member of the gym and team.


We have a wide range of lifters, from novice to international representatives and national record holders, both men and women and masters.
