Hi, my name is Assakhof Ab Satar and I'm running a social awareness for community to stay fit and healthy. I called my initiative "Go Fit With Me". Which is like a slogan or call for action that encourage people to be fit with me.
The program that I run currently was doing 21 Days Transformation Challenge (almost monthly) and a lot of workshops, training and talks, exercise for ladies (yeah, ladies only because my wife can train them - she's ceritified Zumba, Piloxing and aerobic instructor).
I have a blog that capture and log my community activities in http://GoFitWith.me . Please have a look and see a lot of transformation and impact that we'd involved. We'd humbly started one class per week for ladies and now we cather 5 classes a week, monthly challenges and various program in the weekend.
We are a community driven initiative that focus on enhancing people’s life via healthy active lifestyle. Our goal is “To Build A Healthier Nation”, and it’s a HUGE task.
And it is not our task alone to achieve the vision. We need the community involvement to serve back to the community. To realize this, we launched initiative called C.O.M.E. Which stand for “Community Empowerment”. From community to the community.
We want to reach out more. Which mean we want to give impact more to the other community. Currently the initiative was funded out of our personal pocket and we needed external funding to move this initiative.
How It Work
The objective is to produce a small number of people within the community that committed to learn on healthy active lifestyle. We’ll go to the community and teach them the method. Then they’ll come back to their community to train others.
The minimum committed person for C.O.M.E program is 10 people per session. We can handle it up to 100 people in one session. The
training Coaching session is just take a few hours for a period of 10 days. in 21 days and it will be online. This will give more meaningful time with the participant and deeper and flexible coaching session.
To fund this initiative, the community & GoFitWith.Me will work hand in hand to raise the fund. It can be from Corporate, Government or Individual. The start up fund is very minimal, even an individual can raise it.
The main driven for this initiative is awareness through marketing and branding. I belief of "walk the talk" is the best branding. With the slogan "Go Fit With Me",it mean, you're the best brand to represent the slogan. You need to be fit, you need to be knowledgeable and you need to be the leader.
In this process of giving an impact, we as the driver of the initiative need to keep our body fit and keep our knowledge updated. We need to go to class, go to seminar or get professional certification. It required a substantial cost.
I also participate in endurance sport, triathlon. My aim is to race in major Ironman event within South East Asia or other Asia countries. This sport, require dedication, training and countless time sacrification that put your brand above the commoner.
I just miss the local Ironman which will be held on 11 November in Langkawi due to insufficient fund. The next, I'm aiming for Ironman Phuket where I already secured a corporate sponsorship for the accommodation. I still searching for the contribution to fund:
- Bike investment - My current bike need to be upgrade to ease my struggle to be in a good spot in the group age.
- Training investment - To fund the training cost including nutrition.
- Coaching investment - To fund the cost of hiring a coach.
- Transportation cost
I pledge to you to be part of my journey "To Build Healthier Nation" and contribute for this initiative by funding this campaign. I believe we can reduce the current situation where in Malaysia, out of 5 people, there are 3 people that is obese.
Go Fit, Go Healthier, More Deeds!
