Personal Training

With over 10 years of industry experience in the fitness industry between our two Head Coaches specifically working with Weightlifting and Strength Training, we offer a premium space and environment for individuals looking to get stronger, become more technical in their Olympic Lifts and improve their training knowledge. 


Our Face to Face Coaching is suited towards beginners and intermediate athletes who need more confidence with their technique and training style. A 60 minute Face to Face session usually entails going through key technique - ensuring the athlete is moving efficiently and feeling accounted for. We offer these only from our gyms - either in Merrylands or Lidcombe, NSW. 

Online Coaching

Our online coaching service is a premium service to get our athletes feeling technically proficient, confident and accountable. This is designed for athletes who are intermediate to advanced and cannot commit to Personal Coaching due to geographical location or work commitments.

Weightlifting Club

Our newest addition to Uplift Gym - Weightlifting Club. We are a NSWWA and AWF sanctioned club - meaning athletes can register under Uplift Weightlifting Club and compete at a local and national level. We opened our new space in May 2021 and are delighted to share it with Weightlifters of Western Sydney. This area is decked with high quality weightlifting equipment for the novice weightlifter to the aspiring Olympian. If you are apart of our lifting club, you can come to Friday Lifting Club and lift under Uplift Weightlifting Club.

About Us

Uplift Gym is co-owned by Australian Weightlifting Representatives, Isabel Lorenzi and Kyle Bruce. We both got into Olympic Weightlifting when we were young accidentally and have been hooked since. Our mission is to bring the Sport out of the dark ages and help people enjoy this amazing sport! We are both qualified strength coaches and love to equip our clients with knowledge and technical advice to help them enjoy strength training for a lifetime. 


We know how difficult it is to find a community which is welcoming and still has great coaching. We have been mentored by some of Australia’s best weightlifting coaches and added a new school feeling to ensure we keep up with the times! We have coached many weightlifters to state & national titles.

I’ve been a member coached under Izzy for almost 3 years now, 95% remote coaching… Uplift gym itself is absolutely great, you can’t beat the vibes, hype, cleanliness, members and not to mention the equipment. Both coaches, Izzy and Kyle have an immense amount of expertise and knowledge combined. They’ve built a wonderful community and I wish I lived closer so I could drop in more. You can’t beat being in person with your coach and training around like minded lifters.
