Patrick Namwambah the owner of Saints Health Club and Bima Health Club in Nairobi.
It may seem drastic, but Patrick who also runs Fulana Sports, which operates gyms at All Saints Cathedral and the Treasury, says he has studied the feasibility of this strategy for months.
With slightly over 200 members, the gym ordinarily accommodates 50 people at any given time.
While it is fair for the gym to hike the rate, Patrick notes that the move “would be suicidal given the tough economic times.”
His gym may be back in operation, except Patrick is apprehensive that the crisis might escalate.
