Today we’d like to introduce you to Victoria Tapp and Joshua Adeyeye.
Victoria and Joshua, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I (Joshua Adeyeye )have been an athlete my entire life. I played basketball on the high school, collegiate, and pro level. Fitness is something that has been instilled for as long as I can remember. I have always been active and made lifestyle changes in my diet at the age of fifteen to achieve my goals. I ended my last pro season in the summer of 2018 and began training at Lifetime Athletic in Columbia, Maryland. Training was something that came very easy seeing that I had been training with, what I consider to be, the top sports trainer in Maryland since I was 18. Victoria and I went to high school briefly together but had not spoken in years. We both happen to move back to Maryland at the same time and connected and became training partners. Victoria’s dedication and her ability to learn the fundamentals of training and nutrition escalated her transformation. Victoria soon became inspired to get certified as trainer. Victoria is not only knowledgeable about that craft but has a special skill of connection with people. The idea to collaborate on a training business soon followed after she became certified. We formulated a business plan, marketing strategies, logos, etc. and have been training people ever since January 2019.
Has it been a smooth road?
Starting a company is never an easy task, especially personal training, There is a variety of tasks that one must complete if you want to have a chance to be successful. Tasks like marketing, branding, customer relations, etc. are all different components that businesses struggle with initially. However, two of our major personal struggles come from trying to instill consistency/confidence in others, and coordinate business plans seeing as though we both live in different states at the moment.
So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the DualDynamx story. Tell us more about the business.
We are a training company that makes tailor-made training programs specific to the client. We also do in-person training depending on location. We make these programs through an app that one can access on their phones anywhere in the world. We do not discriminate against clientele. We do online coaching, one on one coaching, group coaching, nutrition, and more. We are a company that takes pride in helping others achieve their fitness goals but more importantly instilling confidence in them. We take pride in building confidence not only in fitness but also in life. We firmly believe that physical health is directly correlated with self-esteem and everyday life. What sets us apart from other companies is that not only are we knowledgable in the craft of training but we believe in building meaningful relationships with clients. Our clients are not only our clients but also our friends.
How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
The fitness industry has grown astronomically in the last the decade alone. Right now, fitness is more popular than its ever been, especially with the rise of social media. Online coaching is also at an all-time high. The fact of the matter is that if you need training, you can find it anywhere these days. There is no telling where the fitness industry could lead to in the next 5-10 years. It is coming to come down to the quality of training that is being dealt and the connection the client has with the fitness professional. This is why we pride ourselves on developing quality relationships because people train with who they like.
