About us

Opened by Damon and Zahra at the start of 2018, Built Differently Gym quickly built it's way up to becoming known as one of the best weightlifting and powerlifting gyms in London.


This reputation has not come about just because of our ever-growing catalogue of high-spec equipment and lifting space.

We’ve become equally, if not better well known and loved for our warm, welcoming, supportive family-like atmosphere; something that has come to impact many of our members and the development of their training since joining us.


Since opening, word has spread and we see lifters walk through our doors from all corners of London and further, some trekking literal, actual miles to train here!

As per our Built Differently ethos, our gym welcomes ALL OF YOU.

The best gym in London. Not only are the owners Zahra & Damon two of the most welcoming, humble and lovely guys you could hope to meet, but in just the short time the gym has been open they have managed to build a gym culture, training community and family that is truly hard to find, from beginners to competitive athletes and coaches, who are all always so supportive and helpful.
