Who We Are

In an nutshell, Rucci’s Gym is a serious training facility specialising in Powerlifting and sports performance.

Established in 2010, Rucci’s Gym started as a small garage gym. In June 2012, Dan and Paul took a big step and opened a gym under the name of “Performance Training Centre – Perth” and later rebranded to the original Rucci’s Gym in November 2018.

The popularity of the facility is driven by a no BS approach to training, achieving results and a friendly, encouraging team culture.

Founders and owners Dan and Paul Rucci have promoted the sport of Powerlifting and strength training and today local competitions boast up to 100+ competitors. The success comes from running professional competitions, supplying the best facilities and by working at a grass roots level to encourage new lifters.

We encourage our members to work towards a goal and possibly even compete in something as this provides motivation and goals which drive growth and success.
