Speaking to Voice Sport this week, the owner of Ultimate Fitness attributed his obsession with staying fit to his dad.

Realizing that he could make a living from his passion, Mokaila opened Ultimate Fitness in 2013.
âIt offers services ranging from health, personal and group training, aerobics, sports conditioning and sports psychology. The company also operates my personal fitness brand, CMFit, which offers a wide variety of workout programs.
One of the most popular routines is the Ultimate Functional and Bodyweight Training Program, which is designed to help a person lose weight fast and build muscle.
“This program includes different classes designed not only to improve your cardiovascular and muscular endurance, but also to inspire and motivate you.”
With Covid-19 stopping the sport, the quick-thinking Mokaila improvised and came up with the CMFit Virtual.

Now a star himself, Mokaila has gained self-confidence and established himself as an integral part of Popa’s recent success.
âI took it as a learning curve and became a better fitness trainer because I’ve had real success with the club over the years. It is not a simple task to keep a team like Rollers in shape throughout the season and which has won them titles, âhe said proudly.
Despite everything he has achieved, Makaila still has big ambitions for the future.
âMy plan is to distribute all of my training services to the world. I am currently working on the CMFit app which would see all of my purchased workout routines and meal plans worldwide, and the app is expected to be done before the end of 2021! ”
