Comprehensive sports training center houses ambitious expansion plans

Plans include a 30-bed hotel for international athletes so they can host overseas athletes for altitude training camps. The hotel but be exclusively for endurance athletes from all over the world.

Construction work in progress at the Complete Sports Training Center

The Complete Sports Training Center opened in 2012 with 15 athletes, near Eldoret in the ancient Rift Valley. The business has been so successful and has grown so much that a new center is needed. The vision is to grow but to do so at a new and much more sustainable level.


Complete Sports was able to purchase prime land in Cheptigit, approximately 3 miles from the existing center. They purchased a five-acre (25,000 square meter) site. Work has already started with a borehole for water, buildings, etc. There will be two residences for the athletes. A building for 36 Kenyan male athletes and another for 32 Kenyan female athletes with a matron. The main building will serve as a central meeting and catering venue and will also house staff, dining room, offices, gymnasium, conference room, physio, etc.


Plans include a 30-bed hotel for international athletes so they can host overseas athletes for altitude training camps. The hotel but be exclusively for endurance athletes from all over the world.


Another part of the plan is to run a farm with cows, chickens, sheep and grow corn, vegetables and fruits etc. The objective is to produce a large part of the necessary food locally.


Complete Sports operates like a family and short-term guests (athletes who stay as guests – from the US, Europe and the rest of the world) will experience as part of the family, sharing life, living together 24/7. They can decide if they want to be part of the daily devotions and prayers.


The goal is for the Comprehensive Sports Training Center to be financially self-sufficient for the foreseeable future through revenue from hotel operations and rentals. For this to be possible, the construction and equipment of the buildings must be financed by donations. By starting their own animal husbandry, farming and growing fruits, the center aims to generate much of their food and reduce running costs. From 2024, this should enable the training center to be largely self-financing.


The vision is that the new training center will shape the next generation of Kenyan athletes and coaches in a very positive way. It will also become a godsend for many foreign athletes who will be their hosts during their 2, 3 or 4 week altitude training camps. It will also create new jobs for local people. It’s an exciting concept.
