SKVU Obelix

SKVU Obelix is the Utrecht strength sports club established for and by students. Each week, our members participate in various enjoyable and fun training sessions. While different people may have different sports preferences, we all share a passion for strength sports.


In the evenings, we organize lessons in powerlifting, weightlifting, calisthenics, strongman and body building. These lessons are for beginners as well as for more advanced athletes and are of high quality. For example, our powerlifting lessons and coaching are organized by Dutch Champion (-84KG) Iris Kensenhuis. The lessons take place in Kratistos, but in the summer we also train outside.


Throughout the year we organize multiple non-obligatory activities. These events include drinks and bbqs, but also our popular Bulkingfest. In addition, we hold sportsmanlike events such as the Biceps Games, Gripfest and the Obelix Games.


Next to all these fun activities, we also offer professional guidance and support for all of our different sports. With our association, we try to join several competitions such as the Dutch Student Championships for Powerlifting (see picture). Obelix offers you the option to guide you through your first competition by personal training programs, coaching and practice competitions inside our association.

Contribution (exclusive of the costs of the OlymPas)
€ 30 per year
