Hi! As I’m sure you’ve already figured out – My name is Adura Odesanya and I am currently located in Lagos, Nigeria!
I graduated with a BEng in Electronic Engineering and Computer Science from the University Of Sussex, Brighton, UK. Followed by working in the Engineering and IT industries in Sussex, Slough and finally London for over 8 years.
Think of me as your Engineer turned Fitness & Wellness Specialist
While in secondary school in Nigeria, I considered myself an athlete of some sort – 100m & 200m runner and was in good shape…. until I moved to the UK and gained over 50lbs within a year.
Long story short, after 4 years, I lost all of these extra pounds (in less than 6 months) and during the following years of learning how to maintain my weight loss, I shared my experiences both online (blogging) and offline and helped others on their healthy journey.
It didn’t take me too long to realise I enjoyed learning (and sharing) about fitness and nutrition and thanks to two friends, I started off by studying and attaining my first (of 2) fitness certifications (Group Exercise and Personal Training) in 2008/2009 and the rest as they say is history!
I run group exercise sessions in Lagos, offer Personal Training sessions, run online fat loss & fitness programs, have appeared on TV shows to spread the word of living a healthy lifestyle (Ebony Life TV’s ‘The Spot’ & Africa Magic’s ‘The Dr Ketch Show’) and do as much as possible to Make Healthy Living As Simple As Possible. My goal is to help you make sustainable lifestyle changes through eating fresh, real food and doing effective exercise, I do not believe in “diets” or endless training sessions!
With over 10 years of learning through first hand experience, and professional certification, I understand obstacles that many face in trying to reach weight loss and fitness goals.
Do you want to meet your healthy goals without complicating things, starving yourself or exercising every single day of your life? I'm here to show you how!
Have YOU ever asked any of these questions?:
- Where do I start with my weight loss journey?
- Can I still eat my traditional foods if I want to lose weight?
- Can someone please simplify healthy living?
- Do I have to workout everyday to lose weight?
- How often should I workout?
- Can I still lose weight if I have only 30 minutes to workout?
- I lost weight but how do I keep the weight off?
- Where can I find simple, healthy recipes?
Then you're in the right place!
And just in case you wondered, some of my hobbies are:
- Cooking (and eating) scrumptious & healthy (& sometimes not-so-healthy) food,
- Strength training & Yoga
- Chilling on the sofa with a great book or good TV
