Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro: First Club Fit Fitness Assessment

April 4, 2014 by Kurt


My name is Kurt Kannemeyer and I am the Director of Development at St. Christopher’s, Inc. St. Christopher’s, Inc. is an innovative adolescent development organization dedicated to helping children with special needs and their families by delivering a seamless continuum of care. We provide quality education; therapeutic intervention and life planning skills in a safe and nurturing environment with the goal of helping each child reach his/her full potential.

Last year, I traveled all the way to Africa to attempt to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro for all of our children! Though I did not reach the top, I am determined to achieve my goal this year! My belief is that when we fail at something, we must try again and most importantly, never give up.

This year I have some very essential help from Club Fit! They have provided me with gym membership as well as trainer, Sarah. Just yesterday I met with Sarah and Liz Swan, Club Fit’s Social Media Specialist, along with other Club Fit Staff. After an initial consultation and orientation, we went straight for my fitness assessment! There was no better way to get into training mode than to jump right in!

In this blog, I intend to chronicle my journey back to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Stay tuned for fitness updates, healthy eating tips and more on my inspiration – the wonderful children of St. Christopher’s, Inc. For more information please visit, www.sc1881.org.

I hope you all will read along about my journey and achieving my goal of climbing to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro with the help of Club Fit and their amazing facilities!
