    Default Have had my Gym broken into :-(

    On the evening/morning of the 6/7th of August after owning my gym for 21 yrs some slimy rat's have broken into my gym, destroying a rear entrance, and stolen a charity box containing approx 200, along with a display of different supplements worth approx 400, plus took drinks out of the refrigerators such as Lucozade, glucose drinks and ready mixed bottled protein drinks. Along with two EZ bars, two 7.5kg dumbbells, two 12.5kg dumbells, a rack containing 5kg's, 2.5kg's and 1.5kg's Olympic free weights, so obviously been skinny rat-bags !!! who couldnt lift the 10's, 15's or 20kg plates. Police forensics have taken my CCTV and found a bar nearby to the gym. Hopefully through my gym members I will find out locally who the scum bag's are #revengeissweet

    No, I had recently informed my insurance company that I was changing to another broker on 13th August, which was providing same cover but at a cheaper price, 2 days later I had my break in, I can imagine what they think if I now went back to them to claim the 1000+ ($1500) it is going to cost me, plus if I submit a claim, normally in the UK the price of the cover goes up, other insurance companies then give a higher premium for the next five years, any new insurance company always ask in the UK "have you had any claims in the last five years" so in reality if you claim, they get the money paid out by increased premiums over the next five years

    Just read this - so sorry this happened to you, Doug. Best of luck on the rebuild / recovery efforts.
    Hopefully they catch the thief. Good news - maybe he ( or she ) will take the supps and at least get stronger ha ha
