Default Lifting gear - Europe

Hello,

Sorry if this has been asked before (as i'm sure it has), but i tried searching and only came up with American web-sites.

I finally saved up for my gym bag and i'm looking for an European store where i can buy a decent starting belt and a pair of weightlifting shoes.
So far i only came up with two websites (goodlift and strengthshop) but i'm searching for the best possible deal, so i'm looking at my options.

Thank you for your time!

Strengthshop is your best bet if you dont find a good resource in your county.

Thank you Swede. Will do that.

Since you are way more experienced than me, would you get a 10mm belt or a 13mm?

Strength Shop is a good site I would recommend. As for belt thickness my first belt was 13mm and I always felt it was a bit much. I now use a 10mm Titan lever belt and it is money.
