Hi, I'm Obi Obadike. I'm a celebrity trainer and world-renowned fitness expert and personality. I am known in the fitness industry as "The World's Most Ripped Fitness Model." I've graced more than 40 fitness magazine covers and have been featured in more than 100 fitness magazines. I'm one of the most published fitness experts and fitness personalities in the world. I'm also a fitness columnist/writer for multiple fitness magazines. I've been featured in dozens of national fitness and sports commercials and been requested by mainstream magazines to provide expertise.
I was a Division-I sprinter at Cal State Fullerton, where I set school records in the 100 M dash, 200 M dash, and 400 M relay. I was named All-Big West Conference two consecutive years and held the title of the fastest man in school history for a 5-year period. I also won athlete of the year honors at the university.
I currently write for Bodybuilding.com, which is the largest fitness Internet site in the world. I have a popular fitness expert column called "Ask The Ripped Dude." The site totals more than 18 million unique visitors per month.
I'm also the celebrity host on Spike TV's Sweat Inc. alongside Jillian Michaels.
My educational credentials are B.A., B.S., M.S., Certified fitness Trainer with ISSA and Certified Nutrition Specialist with ISSA.
I love what I do because I have the ability to transform a person physically and mentally and that is a priceless feeling not only as a trainer but also as a writer. Knowing you can help someone attain the body they desire and be healthy throughout their life is a rewarding feeling. That's why I created The 28 Minute Workout. I want to encourage people to workout and get incredible results so they can focus on all the other things they love besides working out all the time.
