Home » About Us



We are THE only serious STRONGMAN, POWERLIFTING and BODY BUILDING gym in the area.

If you currently train in a fitness centre, how many people’s names do you know? Do you just train alone with only your MP3 for company? Would anybody actually care or miss you if you trained somewhere else? BULKs is different, our philosophy is different, but one thing is constant – our love for training. We are THE only serious power and strength training gym in the area. Come and grunt and lift as much as you like! Use chalk, make a mess, make a noise- BULK doesn’t care, as long as you lift the weight! And the best part? Bring your own water! 

We will NOT force you to buy our water (unlike other gyms!) but are happy to keep a fully stocked fridge for those of you who forget or who want something a little extra. 

We look forward to training you soon!

What's Unique about BULK's

With indoor and outdoor strongman equipment, we really do have everything you could wish for, regardless of whether you are the inexperienced novice or the professional, competing athlete. We even have a Car Deadlift parked outside our unit, atlas stones with platform from 32-200kg, Steel blocks to 150kg, Farmers Walk, Yoke, Frame Carry, Duck Walk, Big Daddy Dumbells, Axles, Logs … Please pop in and see for yourself.

Hosting one of the largest collections of professional powerlifting equipment in Kent, Bulks prides themselves on training some of the strongest Powerlifters in the country. With 6 benches, 2 of which are competition standard, one of the biggest Monolifts you will ever see, alongside 2 platforms and a host of Buddy Capps and Okie Bars, there will be no reason for you not to succeed at Bulks. Training with the correct equipment really can make such a difference.

A full Life Fitness Cardio Suite awaits you, alongside an array of kettlebells, medicine and pilate balls and a range of useful assistance accessories such as foam rollers and yoga mats. You will find dumbells from 1-100kg in our huge free weights area and your favourite machines await you; Smith Machines, Super-Loaded Lat Pull Downs, Leg Press, Leg Extension/Curl, Cable Cross Overs and a few you do not always see, such as a Glute Ham Raise, but we believe it is vital in your assistance work. Certainly everything you need, and more!


Bulks is the home of Catch 22 pro wrestling academy under the watchful eye of flying Mike Bird. With classes throughout the week and on Sundays too, Mike will be able to accommodate you as part of the small group sessions or a private 1-1. Watch out for seminars from the pros and even our own wrestling shows with the stars of tomorrow wrestling their way to the top!

Our wrestling ring doubles up as a boxing ring and this is free to use- whether on a day pass or a monthly member. Please message to check availability and book. We also have pro level punching and kick bags and even an aqua bag as well as a speed ball and sparring area upstairs. We have our own gloves and shield but feel free to bring whatever you need.

Our new platforms and Jordan technique boxes can be used by both novice and expert lifters. We have a level 3 Olympic lifting coach on our team who can offer 1-1 and small group sessions, even if you have never lifted before. Coloured bumper plates and specialist bars await – so what’s your excuse ?

Here at BULK’s Gym, we have a real TEAM atmosphere, you are not just a member to us!

If you are looking to train at a gym that welcomes you in, helps you reach your goals and supports you as an individual, then look no further than BULK’s.
