Dave Hembrough

(Hallam Barbell founder and head coach)

Dave Hembrough is the founder and head coach of Hallam Barbell. Dave has a background as a strength and conditioning coach in high performance sport where he has coached teams and individuals at the Olympic Games, Commonwealth Games and at world championships. He now leads the Hallam Barbell programme in recognition that while high performance is great it doesn’t make much of a difference to real people and their lives.

Dave is driven to promote Olympic Weightlifting and strength training as accessible and fun ways people can become fit, healthy and transform their lives.
