Fitness Build 2021, Indonesia

2nd October - 9th October 2021

Join us in Jogjakarta and have a week long work out with a difference. You can provide a family with the long-term shelter and security they need for their future!

In October 2021, fitness professionals and gyms will be taking their clients for a work-out with a difference. In the space of just one week your team will build homes, communities, independence and hope for vulnerable families in Indonesia. Not only will this be a rewarding travel experience of a lifetime, it is the perfect way to add value to your client relationships, and stand out from your competition. No building experience is necessary!

Your team may work on one or several houses, using local construction techniques and materials. You could be mixing concrete, weaving bamboo, digging foundations, laying bricks, hammering, rendering or painting. The itinerary will include cultural activities, and plenty of opportunities to bond with your team and others by the hotel pool. At the end of the week the body will be hurting, but it will all be worth it as we hand over the homes to families which will last for generations.
