  • Adebola

    GYMGUYZ Owner

    Favorite Quote: Many quotes I love but this one is fitness related. "If it was easy...everybody would do it." Fitness Background: Adebola was an athlete growing up and after he stopped competing in college he started exercising other ways to stay in shape. After he graduated he started doing more research about the most optimal ways to work out and how proper nutrition plays a large part. Even though he worked in a very corporate Engineering and Manufacturing organization, he was fortunate enough to be able to share this at work. In 2012 he helped start up the Aloha site group fitness program and his ‘coaching’ ranges from leading corporate fitness classes to coaching elite youth basketball. He has designed and led workouts for multiple age groups (from 5 to 55+) and believes that almost anyone can partake in this style of training and it can be modified for any fitness level to improve work and every day life. My Mission: Adebola has a two-fold passion… 1. To help and improve the life of others and 2. Health, fitness, and sports. He knows first hand how a good workout regimen can improve the life of corporate (office dwelling) employees and is now sharing this knowledge with many others. He hopes to help make the Portland/Vancouver metro area a healthier place and to drive GYMGUYZ being a household name while doing it. Children: Daughter is finishing up her junior year and son is finishing up his freshman year in HS. They play multiple sports including soccer, track & field, football, baseball, and basketball.
