Loaders needed – 29th July at BGWLC

Calling all boys and girls of all persuasions!


This month is Pride in London, and on the 29th of London we will have our first ever Pride Powerlifting Competition!

We’ve got the lifters, we’ve got the referees, the medals and the music, we just need some loaders. No experience neccessary, just enthusiasm and support. 

Want to sign up? email Ron Pyke or Dom Patmore.

IPF World Classic 2016

BGWLC had two lifters at 2016’s IPF World Championships: Ernie Parkes (83kg M4), and Anna Macnab (84kg+ Senior). Both performed brilliantly as part of the Great Britain team.

Ernie Parkes became the World Champion in his class, finishing with a 155kg squat, 90kg bench, 222.5kg deadlift and 467.5kg total. Well done Ernie!

Anna Macnab came 9th in her very competitive class, finishing with 197.5kg squat, 90kg bench, 202.5kg deadlift and 490kg total. All 4 results were new personal bests for Anna, plus her 202.5kg deadlift is a new British record!

Thanks also must go to our powerlifting coach Martin Bass, who traveled to Texas to help out with the GBR team.

 

Women’s Introduction to Powerlifting

We are excited to announce three introductory powerlifting sessions at BGWLC for women. Spaces are limited and preference will be given to women who live within the borough of Tower Hamlets.

The sessions will be held on 12th June, 10th July and 31st July, 11am-2pm.

To apply for a place, email orla@bgwlc.co.uk stating your name, preferred session & postcode.

The session will cost £30 for non-residents of Tower Hamlets (free for residents with proof of address).

Please note this is not a formal training course and is therefore not suitable for fitness professionals seeking powerlifting accreditation.
