Former Futbol Goalie (American Soccer), Bassey William Andem, has become a first time health club owner in 2011. His new fitness chain in Cameroon, Africa is currently being fitted by Global Fitness and the first of several gyms is near completion.
Andem, former soccer pro born in Douala standing of 6’2”, was known for his above-average reflexes and played a long career as a goalkeeper for mostly Portuguese-speaking countries such as C.D. Feirense, Boavista F.C., Esporte Clube Bahia, Cruzeiro Esporte Clube, and Union Douala.
Although Andem’s new venture started off on shaky group, Global Fitness was quick to find a resolution. A deal was signed with a fitness competitor but when this former pro arrived in LA, the equipment was not available and the competitor did not offer a refund on the deposit.
William approached Global for help. The team at Global quickly made suggestions to recoup funds as well as prepare fitness equipment on such short notice. Global Fitness has secured a 3 club deal for Andem. The first of three has shipped earlier this month and the additional two should be completed by the end of 2012.
