We had to get the scoop, so BN Style caught up with the entrepreneur to chat on the new line and her love for fitness.

Fitness is a huge business and trend in the world right now, with a lot of individuals and brands expanding  to incorporate the lifestyle. Why did you decide to start your own line of Gym wear?
My desire to start a fitness line resulted from the personal challenges I faced with my weight loss battle. I didn’t feel like working out a lot of the time, and so I needed an incentive.

I also realized many women have this same challenge. So the thought came to me that if I had stylish, bright and sexy fitness gear, I may feel more excited to head to the gym and workout. I tried it out and it worked. Now, I am excited to go to the gym for dance classes, cardio and more. I have lost a whole lot of weight since I launched the line and I’m still on the journey now.

Judging from your Instagram page, you are very invested in fitness. What is your daily regime?
I am (invested in fitness). It has been a part of my life for many years. My daily routine now is to eat healthy. I eat lots of fruits and veggies and I cut down my carb intake. So, if I have to eat carbs, I will swap pounded yam flour for oatmeal. When I cook Nigerian soups I stay away from palm oil and I now limit my dinner to salads and protein.

Finally, for my workout sessions, I do lots of cardio and have recently delved into dancing to hip hop music as part of my workout routine. I have a couple of videos on my Instagram. If I am going to be fit I want to have fun doing it from my clothes to my routine.

There are a lot of women who want to start their fitness journey, but either cannot fond the time or the motivation. What advice would you give them?
What I have come to realize is when you find the motivation, you create the time. So, my advice will be to find something that will motivate you to want to live a healthy life and look your best. Once you do this you will find a way to achieve this goal.


E! was live at the store opening shooting the next season finale episode of Christina’s reality show – Christina Milian Turn Up! So be sure to catch the show and possibly Lilian’s cameo.
