Callum Hannay - Head Coach / Owner
Welcome to Burleigh Barbell Club!
I am the Owner and Head Coach and would like to share my passion for weightlifting with you. Our mission at the club is to promote longevity in the sport and to bring the benefits of weightlifting (such as Flexibility, Strength and Co-ordination to name a few) to a wide range of individuals. Be it part time training or competing at a high level, we're here to help!

Brayden has been lifting at a national level for 3 years and with a sharp eye for detail, brings a calculated approach to his coaching.
How do classes run?
A typical session runs for approximately 2 hours and within those 2 hours you will complete your individualised program. Programs include warmups and stability work, technical work (Snatch/C&J variations), Strength work and finished with accessories and core.
What do I wear?
Any fitness apparel can be worn. We recommend wearing weightlifting shoes but if you don't own a pair that is not a problem. We even have some you can borrow!
Do I need to be a competitive weightlifter?
NO! Weightlifting is for everyone! We train a multitude of people ranging from 7 yrs old up to 70+. The benefits weightlifting provides are astounding! From mental fortitude to increased bone density as you age to furthering athletic development.... the results are amazing!
How many sessions should I do?
That is entirely up to your own personal goals. We highly recommend a minimum of 2 per week, however also understand the obligations and responsibilities that life throws at you. For more info click here and to see our timetable click here.
