The Alcantara Machado Gym In Brazil

If you don't have a state of the art gym available in your neighborhood you can always take The Alcantara Machado gym as an excellent example of creating something out of nothing whch benefits the community. The Alcantara Machado gym was founded in 2009 by Brazilian former professional boxer Nilson Garrido under the Alcantara Machado viaduct, with the aim of getting young people out of drugs and crime through sports. Currently the gym, which received all its equipment through donations, is visited daily by more than a hundred people, most of whom are unemployed or have financial troubles, who practice bodybuilding and other sports just for pleasure.
