Since the outbreak of Covid, we have seen that working out can be whatever we want it to be; not restricted to the treadmill or weight room. Ssebwato Erick Drake Mukasa commonly known as The Grand Architect is one such person changing how people in Kampala look at working out.
On June 25, 2022, Drake’s Boot Camp will host the Fit & Free Charity Bootcamp, a fitness meets charity event whose proceeds shall go into creating safe spaces for young people struggling with mental health challenges.
A group and one on one strength and conditioning coach, Drake is the CEO of Drake’s BootCamp, a corporate outdoor gym that meets at Velocity, in Kyanja.
Drake started his journey as a fitness coach in High school, at Katikamu SDA, where he was the school Aerobics and dance instructor.
He has since managed to set up a fully equipped outdoor fitness center, the first of its kind in Kyanja. Drake’s Bootcamp attracts over 30 corporates on a daily for his contemporary workout programmes which mimic day-to-day activities like tyre flips, power step-ups, and other rotation exercises.
“While others mostly focus on cardio, our training programs also focus on creating a good balance in the muscle and fat ratio. Our exercises are aimed at reducing the body fat percentage while increasing the musculature of the people that train with us,” says Drake.
Drake says they have created many success stories due to their transformation program and have helped people get into the best shapes.
Drake’s Bootcamp has partnered with Pearl Generation Uganda, a youth-centered focusing on youth empowerment programs with an emphasis on building confidence and self-sufficiency among young leaders, to make this happen.
It will be a family full-day event that will run from 9 in the morning, starting with a fitness boot camp, obstacle races, and later fun activities including dance, games, and a bouncy house for kids.
The event goes for 100k which comes with a Drake’s Boot Camp branded T-shirt, food, and drinks. The donation to the charity is also inclusive of the money.
