Olympic Weight Lifting 

Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 6pm

Woking Weightlifting Club has been running since 1976 and is an official club affiliated with British Weight Lifting. Learn the skill and complexity of the Olympic lifts while giving your whole body a muscular and cardiovascular workout – both the ‘snatch’ and the ‘clean and jerk’ will work your legs, back, shoulders and core! You’ll feel the benefit in improved strength, power and flexibility. Olympic lifting develops a wider range of physical abilities than traditional weight training and transfers well to the performance of other sports.

We’re open to all ages and abilities. Our current members span from ages 13-80.  First session is free, email: for more info.

Capoeira Nago

Capoeira Nago belongs to a Brazilian Martial Art School based in Goiania, Brazil.  

Capoeira Nago’s recent growth around the world is attributed to the excellent ability and competence of the teachers working under the leadership of Mestre Pequines in Goiania, Brazil. 

Capoeira combines self-defence, acrobatics, music and song into one truly unique art form. 

Its origins date back to the Brazilian-African slave trade, where slaves were banned from practising self-defence through fears of an uprising so disguised their practice with fluid, graceful dance-like moves. 

Regular Capoeira classes are held in Woking during the week where all levels and abilities are catered for.  

If you are interested in trying something new, becoming more agile and flexible, want to learn some self defence, burn calories and get in shape then why not come and give Capoeira a try! 

We look forward to welcoming you in our fun and safe training environment.
