Hi, I’m Theo, I am Rwandan and I need your help to open the first-ever CrossFit affiliate gym in Kigali Rwanda.
Rwanda, a small country in the heart of Africa, is almost exclusively known by its awful past of the 1994 genocide. When 1+ million people were killed in just 100 days, while the rest of the world watched and did nothing.
25 years later Rwanda has gone through a tremendous transformation. It has become one of Africa’s model economies, the streets are clean and safe. Over one million tourists visit Rwanda each year. Especially the capital city Kigali has developed to a world-class city. If you’ve ever been there, you will know what I am talking about.
CrossFit is a community sport where everyone with different levels of fitness, knows and supports each other and is unique to many other fitness sports.
It’s a sport that combines weightlifting, athletics and gymnastics in one form of training. It is all about doing functional movements that improve your physical fitness. This carries over to your mental wellbeing and daily life. CrossFit workouts are a celebration of what your body can do and not the punishment of what you ate.
Today, there are over 15 000 CrossFit boxes worldwide, around 186 in Africa and 0 in Rwanda. My dream is to introduce CrossFit to Rwanda and help grow this wonderful community of individuals committed to a healthier way of life.
I was born in Rwanda but fled the country during the 1994 genocide. For the past 20 years, I have been living in the Netherlands where I got my education and also came in contact with CrossFit. Now that I’m all grown and educated, I am ready to move back to my birth country and share my knowledge.
With your help, I will start, support and grow a community that is dedicated to becoming the best version of themselves, starting in the neighborhoods of Kigali, the capital of Rwanda. Also, you will be contributing to a sustainable growth development of Rwanda and Africa in general.
