Temporary Lockdown Closure

As directed by the government, BGWLC will be closed until further notice. We anticipate reopening on Dec 3 2020, but will confirm this nearer to the time.

From: The trustees of Bethnal Green Weightlifting Club

Gym Re-Opening 27 July

The government have announced that gyms will be permitted to reopen later this month. Many BGWLC members have expressed a desire to return to training as soon as possible and the Trustees have decided to reopen from Monday 27th July.

In the current circumstances, it is essential that changes are made to the way in which we conduct training activities within the gym. Specifically, we are introducing measures to minimise the risk of coronavirus infection to coaches and gym users. These measures are detailed below.

Please note – nobody should feel any pressure or expectation to attend the gym – we are reopening in response to demand from users who feel they are otherwise unable to train. Training subscriptions will remain suspended and training will be strictly PAYG for all – Β£8/session.

See Opening Times for more information on when training sessions will be happening and how to apply for a session.

Restricted Availability

Training is only available to existing members of BGWLC.

Training is by appointment only – if you have not agreed an appointment, do not come to the gym.

Numbers are limited. In order to safely accommodate lifters, we have had to restrict the number who can train at any given time to a maximum of 10. In order to maximise the number of lifters who can train in a day, we will also be introducing split sessions.

New Opening Hours

For the time being, our weekday evening opening will be split into two sessions, from 5-6.45 and from 7-8.45. These timings are strict and the gym will be closed between sessions – latecomers to an early session will not be allowed to stay later or roll over to the next session.

General Restrictions

If any gym user experiences Covid-19 symptoms, they must inform the Coaches and self-isolate as per the government guidelines.

Changing Rooms and Showers will not be available

Toilet facilities will be restricted to one user at a time

Lifters should bring their own water, no other food or drink permitted.

No shared chalk will be available. Lifters who prefer to use chalk should bring their own.

No socialising – lifters must leave the gym as soon as individual training has been completed

Before Training

Liaise with coaches for β€˜Back to training’ discussion

Read and sign the COVID-19 Training Agreement

While Training

Use provided sanitiser on entering and leaving gym

Each lifter will be assigned a platform, they may not use any other.

One lifter per platform

No sharing of bars

No spotting or handing over Dumbbells or Bars.

No weight to be loaded which may require spotting
