What is the Weight Club?

The UREC Weight Club is a weight lifiting incentive program that is determined by the sum of the total weight lifted in a one rep max for Bench Press, Deadlift and Squat.

How do I join the Weight Club?

  1. Warm up for the three lifts.
  2. Find the on-duty Fitness Manager in the UREC Fitness Center.
  3. Demonstrate proper lifting technique prior to testing.
  4. Perform the three lifts and the Fitness Manager will determine if a lift is performed correctly.
  5. If the sum total of your one rep max for Bench Press, Deadlift and Squat meet or exceed 400lbs for women and 600lbs for men, then you are now a member of the UREC Weight Club!

What Weight Club levels are there?

  • 400lb Club (Women's entry level)
  • 600lb Club (Men's entry level, T-shirt level for Women)
  • 800lb Club

What happens next?

All Weight Club members will receive a certificate and have their names listed on the Weight Club TV ad. Once a member reaches the t-shirt level, they will receive a Weight Club t-shirt and UREC will post their picture on social media!
