Welcome to Stronghold Gym

A premier powerlifting and strength training facility located in Underwood Brisbane, QLD. Our mission is to provide world-class coaching and training to help you achieve your strength, fitness, and movement goals.

I’m David, the owner and founder of Stronghold Gym. While completing my degree in Clinical Exercise Physiology, I started a strength and conditioning business out of my garage to provide personal coaching to clients. The business quickly grew, and we transformed into Stronghold Gym, a fully equipped facility with top-quality equipment and programming.

At Stronghold Gym, we are dedicated to using the best available knowledge and resources to enhance your strength, fitness, and movement mechanics. Our team of expert coaches is here to help you reach your full potential and achieve the results you desire. We offer a range of services, including personalized training, group sessions, and evidence-based programming.

Thank you for choosing Stronghold Gym. We look forward to helping you reach your goals and become stronger.
