Osayi Osunde is the founder and CEO of Fit Academy. Fit academy is fitness and wellness brand based out of Philadelphia. Fit Academy a 4x “Best of Philly” winner and Osayi is building a revolutionary brand and community that brings people together through health and wellness.
I have been following Osayi’s work for the better part of two years, and I’m constantly impressed and inspired by his positive energy and commitment to self care.
One of the reason’s why I was so excited to talk about Osayi is because I have long been fascinated by the fitness indsutry. Due to the rise of social media, it’s easier than ever for fitness experts and personal trainers to build brands around their workouts, their programs, and their businesses.
However, this new exposure can come at a cost, which is something that Osayi and I talk about during our interview.
Osayi’s journey is one built on perseverance. His family is new to this country, and his success is built off the foundation of hard work. This work ethic is what led Osayi to win a national football championship with Villanova University and also lead him to a short career in the NFL.
More importantly, it’s this same work ethic that has built the foundation of an amazing business that helps and inspires thousands of people.
Fit academy is more than a fitness brand, it is a lifestyle community. Much of Osayi’s business model revolves around the idea of group workouts, group encouragement, and team building. Team building is a big part of Osayi’s success.
