RA-Fit Club
Health Coach
50 Hakeem Balogun Street, CBD Alausa, Lagos
For someone who once referred to herself as an “exercise junkie”, I do a whole lot more than exercise. I am one of Nigeria’s fastest-growing fitness professionals … and I certainly love what I do. I got into the fitness profession after losing 35kg of excess body weight within my first 12 months of a devoted exercise and healthy nutrition lifestyle. In June 2015, I began helping people to begin their weight loss journey – even before I became a NESTA-certified weight management specialist and fitness nutrition coach, an IREP-certified fitness trainer and a Licensed STRONG by Zumba® Instructor.

After I experienced my own weight-loss journey, I began to appreciate all the challenges facing modern women on the same quest and was pushed to solve as many of these problems as much as I could … at first I started helping women in groups (virtually) – WhatsApp and BBM – and then by starting my own gym. I am the founder and owner of the RA-Fit Club in Alausa/Agidingbi area of Ikeja, Lagos, Nigeria. RA-Fit Club opened for business in March 2018 and has rapidly built a client base that now consider themselves more-or-less a family.

A self-described “serial entrepreneur” I have had my fair share of trials, with stories of business success and failure alike as I “searched” for myself in such ventures as events management, year-end hamper design and supply, clothing and accessories stocking, online retail, cake baking and packaged soup prep and delivery. I count none of these as time or effort lost, because the entire experience of doing them led me to the fitness and lifestyle career that I have fallen so deeply in love with from the beginning.

A loving and loved wife, doting mother of three girls and a deeply thankful survivor of a few life-threatening health scares, I am passionate about lifestyle transformation and optimal living, and I continuously study (and occasionally write) on various areas of best-practice in setting and attaining personal fitness goals. I have conducted fitness training sessions during corporate gatherings for Heritage Bank and GTBank, featured on TVC’s Woman's World, the Well Baby radio show on Radio Continental, and twice on inspiration FM's Naija Women in Business. And (before the running of the gym became more time-consuming) was one of the anchors of a 5-minute dedicated fitness segment on TVC’s WakeUp Nigeria. Since the inception of the gym, I have organised members-only fitness events – and most recently - organised ACTIVE ALAUSA (a fitness festival) which was a huge success.

By combining healthy nutrition with just the right amount of exercise, I have a goal to make living a fit lifestyle a stress-less affair for anybody. With my one-day-at-a-time principle and a paradigm of making exercise fun, and healthy food tasty, I am positive that absolutely everyone has the ability to #FindYourFit.
