Snapshots of Accra: Fitness Clubs

Two fitness clubs meet early morning before work at a paved area outside the gates of the Ghana International Trade Fair Centre. Ramos Teiko is the instructor who started it all around 2013. It was an activity of a particular church initially, but now has members from many churches. Mr Teiko’s club has given rise to other clubs, such as the Jay Fitness Club that is made up of younger members. One member of Mr Teiko's club, Kobina Bonful, is 77 years old. He started training in the late 2000's and as he says he still trains with the young people. A doctor told him recently that he has the fitness of a 20-something. On Saturdays the clubs meet at the beach.
