  1. Categories
  1. CrossFit Gyms/Clubs
  • Gyms/Clubs that have the ‘CrossFit’ category attached to them on Find Gyms UK are classed as CrossFit Affiliates. As such these gyms/clubs can be found on the official CrossFit website. This means the said gym/club pays a fee to CrossFit to become ‘affiliated’.
  • Further information on what the CrossFit Affiliate status involves can be found here:
  1. Weightlifting Gyms/Clubs
  • Gyms/Clubs that have the ‘Weightlifting’ category attached to them on Find Gyms UK refer to those gyms/clubs that offer Olympic Weightlifting facilities. Where the British Weightlifting (BWL) logo is attached to the listing, it means that the organisation is ‘Accredited’ with the BWL. As such these gyms/clubs can be found on the official BWL website. This means said gym/club pays a fee to BWL to become accredited.
  • Further information on what the BWL Accredited status involves can be found here:
  1. Powerlifting Gyms/Clubs
  • It is important to note that not all powerlifting gyms/clubs have affiliate or associate status with a national Powerlifting Federation or Association. To that end, Find Gyms UK has only included the GBPF logo in the facilities that are ‘Associated Clubs’. That is, that they have met a strict set of rules laid out by the GBPF, of which further information on can be found here:
  • It is also possible for powerlifting clubs/gyms to be ‘Affiliated’ with their respective home nation. These clubs are not classed as GBPF associate clubs but are recognised by their respective Home Countries to help promote clubs in their area. Where this is the case Find Gyms UK has included the logo of the respective home nation’s GBPF Powerlifting Association (England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland).
  • Find Gyms UK has also only attached the British Drug Free Powerlifting Association (BDFPA) Logo to those gyms/clubs that have ‘Affiliate’ status with the BDFPA. Further information on these clubs can be found here:
  • If a gym/club on Find Gyms UK has powerlifting attached as a category, but no federation/association logo, this means that the club may not be affiliated or associated with the GBPF or BDFPA, but do advertise as providing powerlifting facilities.
  • All records on Find Gyms UK have been cross referenced with the BDFPA, GBPF, English Powerlifting Association (EPA), Scottish Powerlifting Association (SPA), Welsh Powerlifting Association (WPA) and Northern Ireland Powerlifting Federation (NIPF) websites to ensure the highest degree of accuracy.
  1. Strongman Gyms/Clubs
  • Unlike CrossFit, Weightlifting and Powerlifting the sport of Strongman is not currently regulated by any one governing body and as such no affiliates or associate clubs currently exist.
  • Consequently, gyms/clubs on Find Gyms UK that are categorised as Strongman refer to those Gyms that advertise the presence of Strongman equipment within their facility.
  1. Outdoor Gyms
  • The post codes listed for outdoor gyms are the closest registered UK address/postcode for them. Due to the nature of outdoor gyms, they do not all have an exact pin point address as they reside in fields, play areas etc. Prior to embarking on any journey, Find Gyms UK recommends undertaking some mild reconnaissance by navigating to the respective website assigned to the outdoor gym and confirming its location from there.
  1. Other Categories
  • Categories other than the ones mentioned above are self-explanatory in their nature and purpose. These gyms/clubs may or may not be members of their respective governing bodies. For further information on how these gyms/clubs are categorised please contact Find Gyms UK via the ‘Contact Us’ page.

  • Find Gyms UK recognise that some Clubs train out of Gym’s that do not hold the same name as the Club itself. Where this has been found to be the case Find Gyms UK has listed the name of the Gym in the title, not the Club. This is because Find Gyms UK primarily focuses on listing Gyms within the UK, not clubs or groups. In order to accommodate these instances by still including the Clubs in the directory, Find Gyms UK has attached the relevant category to the Gym listing, with ‘Home of: EXAMPLE CLUB‘ attached in the listing description to help identify where the Club is known to train out of.
  • Find Gyms UK also recognise that whilst the information contained within the database was accurate at the time of publication, the gyms/clubs/associated/affiliated or operating status may be subject to change. Find Gyms UK work hard to ensure the accuracy of the data is maintained, however do also recognise that sometimes this data may be outdated. To that end, Find Gyms UK recommends that the user navigates to the respective website or CrossFit, Weightlifting, Powerlifting Federation/Association to confirm their current operating or associate/affiliate status.
