About City Strength HQ Powerlifting and Strength Gym

City Strength was originally the name for a Powerlifting gym when we first decided to become distributors for SBD Apparel. 

In 2016 we were finally ready to take the plunge to open a facility that represents our passion for the sport of Powerlifting and can house a retail location for the brand City Strength at the same time. 

City Strength HQ in Marrickville is a Powerlifting and strength training gym. Decked out with the best equipment on the market, proven training methods and programming it’s a place for all lifters from beginners to the elite. We pride ourselves in having created an inclusive and welcoming environment for everyone who enjoys the sport of powerlifting on a competitive level or who simply wants to become a stronger version of themselves.

If you like training with people who are passionate and kind, hardworking and supportive of one another this is the place for you to train.
