The pictures I took at Rip Mashele’s gym in Shoshanguve.  He is a Kick-boxer who built up his own gym in his backyard.  He opened it up for his community and now several young men train there for bodybuilding and different contact sports.

Extract of the story in Tshwane Beeld:

Gimnasium oop vir almal
Oud-skopbokser in Soshanguve deel passie met gemeenskap
Piet Matipa
Dit mag dalk ’n klein gimnasium in ’n motorhuis in Soshanguve, noordwes van Pretoria, wees, maar dit het al baie spiertiere en kampioene opgelewer.
Die voormalige skopbokser Rip Mashele (38) van uitbreiding 3 deel sedert drie jaar gelede sy liggaamsboupassie met die gemeenskap.
Hy het sy hele motorhuis in ’n volledig toegeruste gimnasium omgeskep.
Eers was dit net vir hom, maar later het hy dit vir almal oopgestel.
Nou is daar sowat 26 mense wat dié gimnasium daagliks besoek.
“Ek is baie passievol oor skopboks. Met die gimnasium hou ek ook die seuns van die strate af.”
Mashele meen die gimnasium is die perfekte uitlaatklep vir enigiemand se woede.
Hier kan die jong mans ysters pomp of gratis skopbokslesse kry.
Die gimnasium is van Maandag tot Saterdag oop.
“Die gimnasium is dalk klein, maar dit het baie kampioene opgelewer,” sê Mashele.
