Growing up as a kid back home in Nigeria, I loved everything relating to sports but sprinting was my favorite. I have represented the school back then during all track and field events, and I mostly came out top.
I traveled to Ireland in my teens, and I must confess I love it up here. Since I stopped participating in any competition, my fitness lifestyle has changed. In December 2017, I sign up to the gym.
I aimed to start strength training, and also gain some lean muscles because I was average skinny back in 2016.
My other goal was to work on my glutes too. In the first three months, there was a little change in my weight. Then I started working out consistently to help me achieve my goal.
I have worked hard in the past one and a half years, and I’m glad to see my body change gradually. My favorite body part is my glutes, I don’t like surgeries, so I train my glutes 4-5 times a week.
My advice is don’t stop working until you have achieved your goal and keep going non stop. I like to motivate people around me by sharing my workout videos on my snap chat, youtube, and Instagram account. My journey positively has changed my mental and physical health.
