eyesarebleeding said:Where do you train in the UK?

Bethnal Green Weightlifting Club in east London, which has been operating since 1927 and is currently run by Tower Hamlets council. I train under the auspices of Martin Bass. BGWLC has trained quite a few champions over the years, including 3-times IPF world champion Eddie Pengelly.

At the moment the club’s future is looking a bit wobbly, as Tower Hamlets council seem to want to offload it; however if they do, I think the club will carry on in some other form as the Olympic & power squads there won’t let it die. 

When I’m not powerlifting, I do my yoga & conditioning (and sauna-ing!) at Urban Kings MMA gym in King’s Cross.
