Uplift Gym was formed in 2018 in a small garage in Lidcombe. Since then we have helped 100s of people discover lifting weights & becoming more confident in the gym. We outgrew our tiny space in 2020 & in 2021 have finally opened a facility to share our passion for Olympic Weightlifting. Both of us, Kyle & Izzy are elite weightlifters who practice what we preach. We have seen the physique changes & lifestyle changes from Weightlifting & want to share our love for the sport with all. We know how hard it is to find friends with people with common interests & place a special emphasis on community & friendship at Uplift Gym. We want all our clients to motivate each other to be the best version of themselves. We offer Online Coaching for all those around the globe who want to be a part of our community & enjoy weightlifting.

We know how difficult it is to find a gym which is welcoming & 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! Our gym is made to be accessible & welcoming for all.
