It is an unknown but still very useful place in the district of Châtelet, on the Tops Of Rouen (Seine-Maritime): the weight room located in the town hall of Bellay, rue Colette. After two months of closure due to a health emergency, it has just reopened its doors to the public.
Extremely attractive prices
This activity is one of several sections of theASPTT Rouen, the sports club with 3,000 members. “We opened this room a decade ago to respond to a request, said Didier Rhée, president of the ASPTT. Today it is a neighborhood hall attended by 80 to 100 people. People here know each other and they come by word of mouth. “
The room is open from Monday to Saturday, free access, from 16 years upwards. We are here in a club, the prices are extremely interesting: 90 euros a year in normal times, 60 euros for those who register now, during the season (subscription valid until July). Jimmy, 21, comes 2 to 3 times a week, while still going to another “classic” room. “Here I appreciate the calm and there are most of the cars,” he says.
It was through Marco that he learned of the existence of this room. He has been coming here for several years. “There is often a cold aspect to the rooms, he observes. Here it is smaller, warmer, everyone knows each other. This maintains the social bond in the neighborhood and offers young people the opportunity to engage in a rewarding activity. And the rates are very affordable, it’s not common yet. “
New: a development manager
To support the athletes and bring the hall to life, ASPTT has created a new position: that of development agent. It is employed by Léonard Basille, a young sports educator who cut his teeth at the weightlifting and bodybuilding club Trait. His role: to inform and advise the users of the hall in their sporting practice, and to make the hall known in the neighborhood. He also plans to offer collective training sessions in the adjoining room. Note that the bodybuilding section will participate in the ASPTT annual event, “Le sport donne des Elles”, which offers free sports activities for women. See you on 12 and 13 March. Online registration is open.
