Frequently asked questions

Not sure what the difference is between powerlifting, body building & strength training? Our answer is who cares, we can help you with either of them. Our training approach is “let’s get you strong like a powerlifter whilst looking like a bodybuilder” Let us explain why;


Powerlifting is a strength sport that focuses on three main lifts: squat, bench press, and deadlift. The primary goal of powerlifting is to lift as much weight as possible in each of these three exercises. Powerlifters aim to maximize their strength and build overall power and explosiveness. Training for powerlifting involves performing exercises that specifically target these lifts and following a structured program to increase strength and improve technique. Powerlifters often train in lower rep ranges (1-5 reps) with heavy weights to develop maximum strength.


Bodybuilding is a sport and a recreational activity focused on developing a visually appealing physique with a high level of muscle mass and symmetry. The goal of bodybuilding is to sculpt and shape the muscles through resistance training, while also focusing on reducing body fat to enhance muscular definition. Bodybuilders typically train using a combination of compound exercises (such as bench press, squats, and deadlifts) and isolation exercises (such as bicep curls or lateral raises) to target specific muscle groups. They often incorporate higher volume training, with moderate to high rep ranges (8-15 reps), and incorporate techniques like drop sets, supersets, and isolation exercises to maximize muscle hypertrophy.

Strength Training:

Strength training focuses on developing overall strength and power, without the primary goal of competing in powerlifting or building a specific physique. It is a broad term that encompasses various training methodologies and goals. Strength training can be pursued by athletes in different sports, fitness enthusiasts, or individuals seeking functional strength for everyday activities. The training programs for strength training often involve compound exercises to target multiple muscle groups and improve overall strength. The rep ranges and intensity used in strength training can vary depending on the specific goals and needs of the individual.

Either way we can help you develop a visually appealing physique through muscle hypertrophy, and strength training aims to improve overall strength and power. While there may be some overlap in training techniques and exercises, the primary goals and training approaches differ for each discipline. We can help you mix your training regime so that it complements your goals. 

We can help you with any of these areas and know which ones will be most suitable depending on your training goals. Don’t forget, Paul has experience competing in both powerlifting and bodybuilding (shiny oily body included)

The type of people that do bodybuilding are quite varied and could range from people that have low self confidence trying to change their life, or someone that is already training but wants to take things to another level and it could be men or women and ages from 16 to 30 normally. Looking and feeling good is the primary goal, strength is normally secondary. Some body building people still like to be strong, but it’s not the main goal and they will sacrifice strength gains for physical aesthetics.

Here are some other attributes we normally see

  • Loves taking selfies and proud of the hard work they are putting in
  • Probably not as specific or diligent as a powerlifter as the training is more focussed around aesthetics vs trying to lift a specific weight correctly & safely
  • Training is a priority in your life & you won’t skip it very often
  • You will have a mindset that wants to maintain any gains you have made, pretty serious about maintaining a diet & training
  • Critical about your appearance and wants to look great at all times

What a bodybuilder normally wants is

  • To build more muscle
  • Improve overall shape
  • Reduce body fat and/or get very lean for stage or just a personal goal of wanton to get super lean
  • Follow a program and nutrition advise that will make their physique look better
  • Look good for the opposite sex
  • Fix muscle imbalances / look more symmetrical – Eg legs too small, chest too small, etc
  • Learn correct technique to maximise effectiveness of exercises to maximise muscle growth
  • Know what exercises are best to maximise muscle growth
  • Train whilst minimising injury risk
  • Manage and fix injuries and work around injuries
  • Overcome training plateaus or slow progress (not seeing improvements in their physique – Eg not seeing muscle growth, not seeing body parts improving)

If the goal is to compete in a body building competition then you will probably

  • Want to win their category which will generally involve maintaining as much muscle as they can whilst getting really lean
  • Looking symmetrical / fixing muscle imbalances
  • Improve physique from your last competition if you have done it before
  • A plan which causes the least stress as possible whilst getting stage ready – getting very lean is hard and stressful, following something which makes this the least painful as possible is ideal
  • Nutrition plan to help you get stage ready
  • Meet the requirements of their category so they can be competitive / win

Our community comprises people who enjoy strength training and want an alternative to the large commercial gyms, which can sometimes resemble a sleazy nightclub. 

We exist to provide a gym training facility and evidence-based coaching for people who specifically want to improve their strength and physique. Our gym in Taren Point is equipped with competition powerlifting equipment but also has a range of bodybuilding machines which you’ll typically find in larger gyms.
