I am a Nigerian, born in Memphis TN and raised in NYC. Currently I juggle many hats. I am a licensed practical nurse, but I'm also an Herbalife health coach distributor. I like to help people so i guess that's what got me into these fields. I first found my passion for fitness when I was a junior in high school. I had co-ed weight-training class as my gym time. It an interesting dynamic I have to say. Ever since then I had a growing desire to exercise. Shortly after when I started college I found out that when you go to school, you have access to a gym. I went every single day after class. This was back in the fall of 2005. It is funny how time flies. Looking at me now you would have never guessed I looked the way I did back in 2005 but we all start from somewhere.
When it comes to exercising and diet I have to be a model to people. I am not competing but I try to live a normal, but healthy lifestyle. This means my diet fluctuates between mostly good things and some not so healthy choices. The key for me in keeping in good shape is to balance out my diet with exercise. If I find I am eating a little more unhealthily, I will force myself to work harder in the gym. When it comes to exercise, I don't have a structured workout plan. What I actually do is I do research on other peoples workout's and exercises I have never tried. I will switch on a monthly basis and do what I can trial and error. Everyone has a different body type and it will respond to exercises differently. So I try something and if it does work I continue; however, if it doesn't then I know to try something else. Fitness is something that is constantly evolving, just as the body so I try to change every now and then so I don't adapt to the stress i put on my body. So when I go to the gym I must try something new each time I go, or different weight, etc.
