17 Jul Get body rocked in Abuja
They say Abuja no dey carry last. And this definitely applies to the fitness industry as well. When fitness centers and gyms started popping up in Lagos, Abuja wasn’t far behind. On my latest trip to the Federal Capital Territory, I finally had the chance to visit the Bodyrox fitness center – one of the city’s comprehensive fitness studios. It was a visit long overdue, and completely worth the visit.
The Bodyrox fitness studio is run by Mayokun ‘Icebox’ Okunnu, the ‘self-proclaimed Minister of Fitness’, and what he’s done with the studio in its 3 years of existence is nothing short of spectacular. Situated at the third floor of Abuja’s Silver bird Galleria, Bodyrox is a fully loaded fitness center offering pretty much everything a fitness nut could desire.
You might be wondering just how much a fitness center could fit into a section of the Silverbird Galleria, but Bodyrox stacks it all in. It’s packed to the rafters with equipment, and no matter what you might fancy, chances are Bodyrox won’t let you down.
If you want to lift weights, they’ve got you covered. Machines and free weights up the wazoo! Boxing? Punching bags are to your left good sir. Space for Yoga and dance? Right over here milady. Oh, you want to wrestle? Into the ring with you! Circuit you say? They’ve got battle ropes, tyres, medicine balls; The works!
Bodyrox not only has enough equipment to take care of your fitness indulgences – it’s got just as many trainers to boot. From High-intensity circuit training to boxing, mixed martial arts and wrestling, Mayowa’s assembled a Crack team that’s got you covered, ensuring that you train safely. Their trainers also hold classes, so you can pop in for a group training session if you feel so inclined.
From its variety of workout equipment, classes and trainers, Bodyrox had established itself as one of the best places to train in Abuja, from what I’ve seen so far. Bodyrox has made the most of its space and already created a tight-knit fitness community, but Mayokun doesn’t intend to stop there. Let’s just say things are cooking in the kitchen, and Lagos should get ready to feast!
