F.E.S. Felicidad, Ejercicio, Salud

Year: 2016
Country: Costa Rica
Project Status: Funded
Impact Sector: Economic Opportunity
Project Investment: $400.10

Project Launch: 2-17-17

Felicidad, Ejercicio, Salud (Happiness, Exercise, Health in English) is a community group composed of residents of San Ignacio that hopes to promote healthy lifestyles. A local female gym owner has hosted a number of fitness classes at her location and elsewhere in town in conjunction with the group. However, a lack of capital has prevented her from expanding her operation, acquiring more equipment, and leading more classes. This project seeks startup capital to expand the gym business and facilitate the growth of FES.

Project Update: 3-30-17

All gym equipment has been purchased and interest in signing up for classes has expanded rapidly among villagers, bringing new participants to the outdoor courses. Efforts now focus on developing a curriculum and set of courses to harness this increased demand.

Final Report: 5-9-17

The community exercise activity in the park was a great success. 20 residents participated in the activity. This event served as the perfect platform to introduce community members to new types of exercises that will lead to increasing their physical fitness and also as an invitation for more people to become members of F.E.S. and exercise regularly.
