Achieving confidence by building muscle and strength

Hey and thank you so much for stopping by. I’m Folakemi Olamide and I started Confidence Through Fitness in 2016 as a creative outlet to document my fitness journey as it evolved into strength training. I was studying at the Graduate Institute of International and Developmental Studies in Geneva, Switzerland for a Masters in International Affairs and was sick of research taking over most of my time! I wanted to share with the world my passion for strength training, in particular powerlifting, as well as my love for writing. I used to write fiction stories online in my mid-teens and that love never stopped. Over the years my blog has evolved from sharing my fitness journey to sharing fitness and health tips, mindset, lifestyle & wellness content. Confidence Through Fitness is more than a creative outlet but a place where fitness and other adventures in my life converge. Lifting gave me an avenue to overcome my confidence and low-esteem issues, and taught me to embrace what my body does for me and not what it looks like.

I share weekly powerlifting and mindset content on my Instagram. I’ve started creating more Reels which has been a breathe of fresh air lately and I share more of my personality through there and my stories. I want to share with the world that it is possible to be dedicated with your passion and work 9-5. I’m trying to get into vlogging so I can share more of my travel content, powerlifting tutorials, tips and hauls in that way. Stay around for a while, explore my world…while you’re here subscribe to never miss a post!

I’d love to hear from you so please don’t be afraid to reach out!
