Rowan Carstens – Why we founded OUTFIT NAMIBIA

Rowan CarstensI’ve always had an active life, even as a child I spent most of my time outside climbing trees, exploring the river beds and surrounding bush in Windhoek, the capital of Namibia.

I was always intrigued by the Power of the Human Body and often questioned, what the limits to the human body really were. It wasn’t until later in life, that I discovered that these limits could be pushed further and further, the harder one trained.

Having participated in Karate, Hockey, Rugby, Cricket, Indoor Football, Sailing and a number of other sporting activities, I realized that the approach to training varied and in some instances, rather drastically. Although these variations had similar, if not identical underlying principles, “Train Hard & Get Results!”.

I felt this to be true to a certain extent, but I still realized that, at least in my experience, some training regimes became rather repetitive and didn’t quite challenge the human body outside the normal motions of that given sport.

This is the basis for us developing OUTFIT NAMIBIA. Not only to enjoy training outdoors and increase one’s appreciation of nature, but to construct a training program that will improve an individual’s performance through “Functional Training”. The unlimited obstacles, which the outdoors provide, is a perfect backdrop to achieve this.
