Gideon Akande, a Chicago native, played Division 1 football for Holy Cross and became one of the leading kickoff returners in school history. After graduating, Gideon began a career in finance.
His heart wasn’t in it.
In 2010, he became a full-time fitness instructor and found his passion. Today, Gideon teaches, trains and motivates with his always positive attitude, his contagious energy and his undying belief that each person should…
Just Go For It.

I had the privilege to work with Gideon, for Stiry and iFit,  as Director of Photography, in telling his story of success through hard work, a positive attitude and the courage to follow his passion–fitness and wellness training .
