Did you know that K&P has its own free-weights gym? No? Then read on further…
As an athlete, it's important to be strong, flexible, and have good awareness of basic movement patterns that can reduce the risk of injury. Olympic lifting - cleans, snatch, squat and deadlift - helps to develop explosive and functional strength, and is used by all international athletes as part of their training regimes.
At K&P, we have invested a lot of time and money in kitting out a cosy gym at the end of the Kingsmeadow stand (by the 100m start). It has everything you need to develop technique, develop speed and power, and push for personal bests in all Olympic lifts.
We have a team of coaches and senior athletes who would love to work with you to help you maximise your potential on and off the track, so come down on a training day and see what it's all about, or ask any of the club coaches. Membership costs as little as £60 per year for access whenever the track is open, and when there is a registered coach using the gym. What are you waiting for?
For more info please use the General Secretary contact form listed in the menu on the left.
We are one of the biggest and friendliest athletics clubs in London and compete across a huge array of leagues, events and championships and have athletes of literally all standards and ages and across all events.
Whether you are an 8 year old novice, a senior international or a “more mature” athlete looking to get back into the sport – we can help you achieve your goals.
We cater for runners, jumpers, throwers and multi-eventers on the track, in the field, on the roads or over the country and are based at Kingsmeadow in Kingston-upon-Thames (KT1 3PB). We'll be very happy to help you with your sport – so please just get in touch and we'll do all we can to assist.
