Since 1989

About Us

We believe inclusivity starts with us. So no matter your body type, fitness level, ability, gender or background, you’ll be welcomed into our club.

Squats opened its doors here in Streatham back in 1989 as a unisex bodybuilding gym. Since then, we’ve been proudly serving dedicated weightlifters from all over south-west London.

Over the years, we’ve expanded our facilities to offer so much more than just weightlifting! Read on for a flavour of what our gym is like or visit our Gym Equipment, Hiit Classes or Personal Training page to see more.

Our members achieve amazing things. We’re home to professional athletes, record-holding weightlifters, and – most importantly – ordinary people who have transformed their lives through fitness.

Will you be our latest success story?

Whether you’re a beginner, a seasoned bodybuilder, or a professional athlete, Squats Gym has absolutely everything you’ll need for a complete workout experience. We know that your fitness journey isn’t always going to be straightforward.

Whatever your experience levels, sometimes you’ll face roadblocks. How am I going to stay motivated? Am I doing the right type of workouts for my goals? Do I need to change up my diet?

We get it! And this is why we’ve prided ourselves for many years on creating a truly bespoke fitness service. We’ve got the equipment, the expertise, and the supportive atmosphere you need to succeed.

We believe that a gym is more than just a building – it’s a community. It may sound a little cheesy, but we truly see Squats as an extended fitness family.

Sounds good? Sign up today – we can’t wait to meet you!


You might think that weight training is only for big, bulky men. You might even feel intimidated to give weight training a try if you don’t fit this stereotype. Don’t panic!

We offer a safe and friendly space for people of ANY ability, gender, or size to discover the absolutely game-changing results you can get from weights.

People often see our modestly sized entrance on Mitcham Lane and are then surprised by how much excellent equipment awaits them in our gym downstairs! We prefer to keep things simple. We don’t offer fancy trimmings like pools or saunas. Instead, we’ve got absolutely everything for a full, comprehensive gym experience.

We literally have everything you could possibly need: absolutely lots of iron plates, dumbbells from 1kg up to 70kg, chains, kettlebells, bench presses, Olympic bars (Safety squat bars, bow bars, deadlift bars).

And we didn’t settle for just any old weights. When you train at Squats, you’re using elite Hammer Strength Range equipment. We believe that high-quality equipment is a key ingredient for success.

We also have a wealth of other equipment and exercise machines. If you’re looking for it… we probably have it!

Not only do we have all the gear, we have over 30 years of experience in creating the very best layout for a gym that inspires, encourages, and elevates you to achieve. And, of course, we have our friendly and experienced team of dedicated and enthusiastic athletes. If you need help or advice, there’s always somebody on hand to assist.

Our team is as serious about your training as you are. Any questions – don’t hesitate to come and chat to us.


Are you looking for a personal trainer? Great! Have you thought about finding a professional athlete who can pass on first-hand experience which will allow you to achieve your set results quicker and safer?

Well, we have thought about all of that for you! Simply turn up and our personal trainers will do the rest… kind of. Our trainers have all competed in either Bodybuilding, Powerlifting or Physic displays. Of course they have their personal training qualification too!
