The project is designed to help members in achieving respective health and fitness goals, where they pay a small fee to run the project. The group is made up of about 6 young people who engage the locals in health and fitness activities that are effective, timely and regular and tailored to individual’s unique needs. The project has a gym and aerobics facility with equipment and is engaged in activities like Fitness training, weight loss, nutrition counselling, school outreach to recruit young talented children, offering health education to schools and community on health living and avoiding non-communicable diseases. In few occasions, the project also offers physiotherapy sessions to patients. To do this the trainer record individual health related information like blood pressure, weight and BMI.

There will be an orientation seminar for new volunteers lasting three days including Nairobi city introduction. Our monthly orientation seminar starts on the first Monday every month. It would be good if the volunteers can arrive at least one day before the orientation starts. However, if a volunteer will arrives on another date, we can still organize for a full orientation.
