Creating a definite future for Nigerian youths through community-based initiatives – Danny Nazzal, Ivory Health Club
Let’s get to meet you Sir, please tell us about the background of the Ivory health club
My name is Danny Nazzal, I am the Group General Manager of Ivory Health Club. Ivory Health Club is a Spa and Wellness solutions company of choice that opened for business on the 1st of August, 1989. We presently operate from Ivory Complex at No.4 Ogundana Street, Off Allen Avenue, Ikeja, Lagos.
With the break of the pandemic and disruption in the normal flow of business, how have you been able to adjust, maintain and deliver a standard level of service
With the chaos the pandemic has caused in disrupting the normal flow of business and life, we have been able to adjust to this new norm by creating programs to engage our various clients physically and mentally through our various social media platforms e.g. Instagram, WhatsApp, etc.
There is a continuous awakening in the society on the need for fitness and maintain a healthy outlook, what activities do you have available to engage new and potential members
The Ivory health club offers fitness and wellness packages for the entire family. We offer fitness and social packages ranging from but not limited to Boot camps, Bond4fitness, Weight Loss Challenge, Member’s breakfast, and Sports academies for kids. Basically, we offer packages/activities outside the same old Globo-gym monotony, resulting in fun, never boring, and competitive games that improve mental and functional strength and agility that apply to everyday life.
Are you involved in any community development initiative presently? Do you think the government is doing enough to support community health initiatives?
We are currently involved in different forms of community development initiatives/programs which are creatively positioned to offer the youth a challenging, competitive, and educational program with an emphasis on societal change, integrity, and prosperity. These initiatives include but are not limited to the following:
- *Dannaz Football Club (both male & female)- engaging youths through grassroot football and creating job opportunities for them.
- *Sponsoring inter-house sport competition in schools.
- *Periodic free fitness programs.
- *Hosting yearly free children’s day party for underprivileged children.
We are impressed with the level of professionalism consistently shown in this club. Is there any ideal profile for membership of IHC?
Ivory Health Club is a healthy lifestyle platform. We are affordable, effective, and private!
What would be a perfect day at Ivory Health Club in terms of customer experience?
At Ivory health club, members keep discovering new things with every visit. But no matter who you meet or what you do, our club is built around the following essentials: Strength, Stability, Stamina, Soul, and Socialization.
What do we expect from you in the nearest future as a trailblazer in health and fitness in Nigeria?
We aspire to be the first and foremost luxury health club of international repute; therefore, we are planning to have branches and health resorts all over the major cities across Nigeria and Africa.
