Bami Kuteyi, Bam Bam Boogie to her legion of fitness fans, is a force of nature. A ball of energy warmer than the sun, radiating positivity and life from the instant you find yourself in her presence.
Bami is founder of fitness brand Bam Bam Boogie, a breath of fresh air bringing much-needed inclusivity in the fitness industry via its innovative classes - Twerk after Work and Twerking Heels.
Bami’s vibrance isn’t just in the warmth she exudes; her explanation of how she came to launch her brand is captivating in its simple response to a problem she faced at the time - anxiety. The search for a way to manage her anxiety, something she struggled with while working for one of the world’s biggest brands, and her journey of resilience to pivot into the self-made role she is in today, is a remarkable example of turning a challenge into a shiny new opportunity.
