RWF are now offering powerlifting specific training and advice in Nottingham within a training facility expressly designed for it – please see for more details. In a little over two years, we’ve helped produce four BDFPA World Champions, and hosted 8 official BDFPA competitions. If you want to powerlift, drug-free, in Nottingham, we’re the only place to be.


Both Derran and Tim have successfully competed at the BDFPA British Championships, and have gained a wealth of first-hand competitive experience in raw lifting. We’re always learning, and we’d love to help people just starting out or new to the sport. Several gym members are already working towards their first competitions next year – and in 2018, we’ve helped produce four BDFPA World Champions.

We can help you plan your training to peak for a competition, explain how to train throughout the year to improve your total, and advise you of what to expect at a competition. We’ll guide you through the kit you need, where to buy it, and what is worth spending your money and time on.




We operate from a fully kitted out gym with multiple squat racks, Eleiko and Rogue competition plates and bars, power cages and lifting platforms.

You can train here and devote 100% attention to detail, unlike in a busy commercial gym.

If you’re in Nottingham, and wanting to get into powerlifting, get in touch with us. We’re always happy to help with basic questions – and if you need more support, you can train with us one to one at our standard PT rates.
