INSTITUTE HISTORY

 

The Institute of Fitness Ghana (IFG) was registered as a company in Accra, Ghana in 2018.

The company founding members, Samed Brimah and Caterina Sestili identified a gap in the Ghanaian fitness industry sector for quality formal health and fitness vocational training and the expansion of employment opportunities and employment pathways within the Ghanaian health and fitness industry.

Samed Brimah, a Ghanaian National and a qualified health professional who has lived and worked in the UK and Australia recognises the value of developing consistent industry standards for the training and qualification of health and fitness professionals. Sam has a burning passion to bring back his knowledge and experience to his homeland, to add value to the country he loves by improving the health and wealth of the people and country he loves.

In fact, Samed and Caterina firmly believe that a healthy Ghanaian population produces a wealthy nation, primarily by combatting the extremely high prevalence of non-communicable diseases due to sedentary lifestyles and incorrect dietary habits and by offering better employment pathways to the many youth and adults who are passionate about health and fitnessdark.
