Your Sports

Old Tyme Strength isn't just a gym! We're a multi-sports club too. 

Powerlifting, Olympic weightlifting and Para-powerlifting are perfect for beginners as they teach basic movements that can be perfected with practise and without prior training experience.

They are individual effort sports practised in a supportive environment and the only person to beat is yourself!
