Helping Tanzania local Eddie create his dream gym

Donation protected
Hello, I'm Ryan, the CEO of UK gym equipment brand Recharge Fitness. We pride ourselves on our great kit, but more importantly creating a healthier, fitter and happier population.
We try to inspire, to educate and motivation, alongside making a positive impact on peoples lives. We are lucky to work with professional sports clubs, crossfit boxes, gyms PTs studios, international superstar athletes and the public. They all inspire us in different ways, but recently we found someone, a Mr Eddie Mbewdo Bwizo Beiby, who is a truly remarkable character and we want to help him out!
Eddie trains hard, what he lacks in good quality equipment, he certainly makes up for in his attitude. He trains members of his village in Tanzania, 47 people in fact, and helps them get into shape! This is all done utilising his rudimentary equipment. He shares his workouts on a number of gym community pages, inspiring others. If Eddie can make do with his limited kit and get results, what's stopping you!
So we've been speaking to Eddie, and he is in desperate need of dumbbells, kettlebells, bumper plates that won't cut his hand, resistance bands, and of course some nice gym clothing! We want to help him out. We want to provide all the kit he needs free of charge as a thank you for being such a good guy! 
  • Recharge Fitness to provide over £1000+ of free gym equipment
  • Crowdfund delivery costs 
But we need your help too, sending gym equipment out is never cheap, it's heavy, it's awkward, so when that equipment is going from the UK to Tanzania, it's going to cost, but it'll be totally worth it.
All donations will go into the fund, to help pay for the shipping and courier costs, any extra raised will go on more kit, or helping others.
Please do spread the word and unite Eddie with his new @recharge_fit kit that is waiting.


As a part of this challenge, we are running #Calories4Eddie where we are encouraging people to workout, then share evidence of their calories burned - tagging us on:

Facebook @rechargefitnessuk 
Instagram @recharge_fit

And tagging 3 friends to join the challenge and donate.  

We want to maximise engagement, spread awareness and boost donations.

Once we have collectively burnt 500,000 calories and raised the funds for the courier Eddie will have his kit sent out. 


Eddie is absolutely thrilled by the public support. 
We have been in conversation with Eddie throughout April helping to finalise his gym equipment (whilst sorting a few logistical challenges - to say the least). 
We are they, his kit is all picked, packed, wrapped, sent to the shipping agent on its journey to Tanzania.
We will be keeping Eddie up to date with dates, agent handover and drop off to his house - which is surprisingly difficult as addresses and postcodes do not exist. The good news is the shipping agent has successfully delivered goods to Eddie previously so there is a prior relationship which should safeguard this. 
The Recharge team took extra precautions with the packaging process, all items are boxed, wrapped, sealed and strapped. 

Eddie - we cannot wait to get this to you, so you and those you train can benefit, keep up the amazing work!
