About us

LSE Barbell was founded in 2019/20 by three guys who spent most of their student life at the LSE gym. One day, one said to the others ‘the LSE seems to have a club for everyone, except people who like to lift weights’. And the others replied ‘yeah, that’s crazy’. That is the story of how LSE Barbell was born.

That story also sums up what LSE Barbell is about: a group of LSE students who like to lift weights. That is honestly the only thing we ask for our members. Maybe you lift to sculpt your body. Maybe you lift in the pursuit of the next PR. Maybe you lift because it helps you in other sports. Whatever the reason, if you like to lift weights, we want you to join.

Or maybe you want to learn how to lift weights. That’s awesome: we design training plans according to your needs as well as expert coaching.

Not sure how committed you want to be? That’s also cool: we have a two-tier membership program designed with both the competitive and casual lifter in mind.

So, if it’s not in your head already: if you like to lift weights, LSE Barbell is the club for you!
