Strength Shop Customer Testimonials
"Never felt the need to contact a company like this but just wanted to say that the goods I ordered from yourselves are superb. I am one happy customer. I will definitely be using yourselves again at some point. Many thanks." - Stephen - January 2015
"Just a quick one, ordered the odin knee sleeves a few days ago and they arrived yesterday. I was very impressed by how accurate your sizing guide was, it was spot on, and I wanted to congratulate you on such an efficient service, taking hardly any time at all to ship, especially considering it was right in the middle of the holiday period. Ive already recommended you guys to a mate I lift with and he's probably going to be putting in an order for some of the thor sleeves pretty soon. I know I'll be a return customer. Just wanted to say thanks for giving a solid, professional service." - Lyndon - December 2014
"I would like to say thank-you to Strength Shop and Craig in particular for all their help in my recent order. It wouldn't be exaggerating to say that, even though my order was somewhat small, i was treated like royalty. Craig patiently, thoroughly and rapidly answered all my queries by email. I placed my order late on Tues night and it was with me by 9.30am the same Friday in Northern Ireland! I bought their own brand of Powerlifting Bar and Lever Belt and found the quality superb.I would highly recommend buying from Strength Shop. Like most customers yes i did inquire with other firms locally. One ("Elite")firm tried to sell me an Olympic W/L bar for Powerlifting as it " had more whip"!!! Another ("Custom") firm sold me a rack which 4 weeks later after payment, i still havent received yet in working order! So i advise anyone reading this to buy from Strength Shop. I confirm i have no link whatsoever with Strength Shop and i have volunteered this testimonial. Thanks again Strength Shop for your outstanding customer service and product knowledge!" - Colin B - November 2014
"Hi, I just want to say thank you for all your help that you gave me when I ordered my Olympic weightlifting bar and yesterday the bumper plates. The Olympic bar is brilliant. I'm learning to Olympic lift and train at a normal gym during the week so I needed a female bar to work with. I ordered your own brand and it is serving me very well. I've just ordered the bumper plates & even though I went with the cheaper ones I'm sure I won't be disappointed. The thing for me was your customer service, calling me back straight away giving me the advice that I needed. Plus when I brought the bar you were emailing me late on a Sunday eveing. This is going above & beyond for me. I will always come to you when I need something. So thank you truly for helping me progress in a sport that I'm truly loving." - Helen - November 2014
I made an order with yourselves recently for some bumper weights and an Olympic bar, unfortunately for what ever reason the bar was slightly bent. I emailed you to inform you of the situation, despite me not sighting for 'damaged goods' upon receipt from the courier I was told it would be collected at no cost of my own and returned for inspection to see what the next course of action would be. I was then contacted to acknowledge the problem and a new barbell was dispatched to me at no extra cost.
I would firstly like to thank you for this but more importantly commend you on the service provided. I am extremely impressed with the service from start to finish even more so as the items I ordered can't just be put in an envelope and posted but involve a lengthy logistical chain.
Yesterday was the first time I actually got to throw the kit around and I am very impressed with the barbell. It is under £100 which isn't even on the scale when it comes to the price of what is out there and it is excellent.
On the whole you have provided excellent equipment at the cheapest price (I did a lot of research) with an outstanding service.
Thank you very much,
One happy customer" - Marc - March 2014

"Just wanted to say how thoroughly impressed I am with the service I have received from strengthshop.co.uk
I placed an order for 100kg of bumper plates and a bar at just after 5pm last Friday (at the start of the bank holiday weekend). I wasn't in a particular rush and I presumed that the order probably wouldn't be dealt with until Tuesday at the earliest. So I was extremely pleasantly surprised to have my bar delivered on Tuesday and the plates the next day!
Great products and fantastic service.
Thank you, I will be recommending you to anyone looking for strength equipment and coming back for future orders." - Ben - September 2013
"I just wanted to let you know that I am very pleased with the items I bought from you (football bar, fractional plates and 'expand your hands' bands). I was also very impressed with the speed of delivery (next day) and look forward to ordering more items from you in the future." Mary - September 2013
"I just want to say thank you again. You guys are great. I just wanted to let you guys know that I've recommended you to everyone I know that even thinks about buying strength equipment. I have several things from you guys in my gym bag now and everything is great quality. You definitely have made a loyal customer, and I hope to keep sending more business your way. Thanks again" - Joseph - August 2013
"As a gym owner I am used to delays when ordering new equipment. This couldn't be further from the truth with StrengthShop.co.uk. I received the item I ordered the very next day with no fuss. The customer service is excellent and the item was very good value for money. If you want a reliable service then I recommend buying your equipment from StrengthShop.co.uk" - Chris Burrows Personal Trainer - February 2013

"Guys again just a Thankyou from over 24people who complimented on the kit I've bought and used on one of my launches. Your bumper weights are brilliant, and my weight lifting clients all get on well with your oxide oly bar.

"As a new customer, I just wanted to say a hearty 'Thank You' for the speed and courtesy of your service / delivery - and of course the quality of product ( a at very affordable price ). I had long wanted to try a few kettlebells of the exact size / shape / balance you stock - to compliment my existing 'Competition' style bells. The ones I bought from you, have become firm favourites; as they can be 'cleaned' in pairs without using an unusually wide stance - and the handle(s) feel great in the hands - and they are very aesthetically pleasing. I was also impressed by the selection of stock you held ; you have a well chosen and affordable range of what we need, without the added 'fluff' of having too many pointless variations on the same theme. The items you have now made affordable and available , encourage a greater enjoyment / quality of training - and the personal service you provide, make the 'Strength Shop' The one we would want as a 'first port of call' in the future. Derek
"Got the belt yesterday and put it to the ultimate test (a set of 20 Rep Squats) and it performed even better than I'd hoped for! to say I'm pleased would be the understatement of the year, thank you so much for supplying such a high quality product, I really am overjoyed with the belt!!! I was not only able to breathe unrestricted but the support from the belt made the weight feel much lighter which is a real bonus, all in all buying the belt has been one of the best decisions I've ever made."
"Hi... Have *** *** ****** ***** available... I bought a pair from you a while ago. They are so durable and good to use - just as good as any Eleiko or Ivanko rubber bumper that I've lifted with and a fraction of the price! Thanks for making them available."****, Hertfordshire.
“As founder and head coach at Sutton and Epsom Weightlifting Club the quality of the equipment I personally use and that which I supply for my squad is of utmost importance to me. As is the nature of Olympic Weightlifting in the UK finances are always incredibly tight for new kit and the bumper plates from strengthshop.co.uk certainly provide excellent value. The inexpensive price doesn’t seem to reflect poor quality as thus far I haven’t seen any sign of splitting whatsoever. I would say the plates are very similar in quality to the same style from the leading manufacturers.” Phil Nourse B.Sc (Hons) First Class, CSCS, USAW, BWLA, Sac Dip
“My goal is to compete at the 2012 London Olympic Games and by providing me a set of their excellent bumper plates, strengthshop.co.uk has helped to make this happen. I am now in full time training but I live an hour’s drive away from my club. In order to train more often I have set up a gym at home and Strength Shop’s bumper plates are clearly a pivotal part of this set up. The plates are excellent quality and compare really well with any other rubber plate I have used.” Sunny Brar (#2 ranked 63kg weightlifter in England)
