Supporting local athletes

We’re proud to be part of the Team GB Gold Club and supporting local athletes towards their Olympic dream!

As part of the club, we offer the athletes exclusive discounts and benefits to help them train for upcoming competitions.

There are around 2,000 athletes on the Team GB Gold Club who have been included by their National Governing Body of sport as a potential future Olympian or Paralympian.

There are two levels of membership: Gold and Silver

Gold:  Prospective Olympians/Paralympians for the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games and the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

Silver: Prospects for future Olympic/Paralympic Games

We’ve recently supported amateur athlete Jon Read, who lives in Lichfield, while he trained to represent Great Britain at the World Championships in Canada. Jon increased his training at Evolve Fitness and with our instructed Wattbike classes. Read more about Jon’s Olympic journey >>

Through the Team GB Gold Club, we’ve also helped Paralympian Rebecca Bedford from Yoxall. This summer Rebecca won two silver medals at the Irish Para-Badminton Internationals. Rebecca competed in the SS6 classification, playing in singles and mixed doubles competition. She got through to the finals and won silver medal in both categories. She also won an exhibition final match in women’s doubles with her partner Choong.

We wish Rebecca and Jon the best of luck in their future competitions.
