The gym equipment procured include plates, a bench and a trojan machine THE University of Zambia gymnasium (UNZA gym) has procured gym equipments worth K9 000.
In an interview with the Lusaka Star, UNZA gym committee member, Kelly Nkole said the procurement of the equipement was a massive step in the development of the gynasium.
He added that among the procured equipement included plates, a bench and trojan machine and had also refurbished some of the gym’s old equipments.
Nkole noted that it was important to repair old items so that they could supplement the increasing number of people using the gym facilities.
“UNZA gym has been lacking equipment for a long time now and the restocking of the gym with new equipment is good for growth of the gym,” he said.
Nkole added, “Repairing of the old items and having new equipment like the new bench will help decongest the number of people per equipment and it will encourage more people to come to work out at the gym.”
However, another committee member of UNZA gym, Eto Kabadula was not satisfied with the number of equipment that had been procurred claiming they were not enough.
He lamented that the equipment was not enough to sustain the increasing number of students who used the gym despite the old items being repaired.
“There is urgent need for more equipment to be bought because there are many people on campus that need to use the gym facilities,” Kabadula said.
“The gym has got many benefits. Students can use it to refresh their minds after lectures as well as ensuring they are physically fit,” he explained.
Kabadula has since called on well wishers to support UNZA gym to procure more equipment for the development of the gynasium.
