SEBOKENG. – Pule Qokolweni is a young, up-and-coming, ambitious coach who is destined for a great future, not only in football but also in empowering the community as far as fitness and health are concerned.
The young man runs a Boot Camp at the Saul Tsotetsi Sports Complex in Zone 14, Sebokeng, every Saturday from 08:00 – 10:00. Speaking to Sedibeng Ster, Qokolweni said the camp is for young and old who want to lose weight, keep fit and especially for those soccer teams preparing for the pre-season.
Qokolweni said that apart from the R20 he charges per person, the idea is not to make money but to buy more equipment for the Boot Camp. He believes there is a need for such initiatives in the community because most people can’t afford to go to town for those top class gyms. “We decided to open our own Boot Camp for our community and I’m happy with the response because now people are used to this idea. Look, it is not about money but making a difference to our community. We want to give back to the community because some of us grew up supported by the same people when we were still young. I’m happy because some of the teams want to be part of the initiative in preparing for the coming season,” said Qokolweni.
