Meet Ewunike Akpan

Thanks to her mom, Ewunike Akpan grew up with physical activity at the center of her childhood, but it wasn’t until she decided to participate in the 1999 AIDS Ride from Raleigh, N.C., to Washington D.C., that she saw it as a potential career path. After earning her certification through ACE, she has gone on to establish her own business, LOTUS Fitness, and has become an integral part of BOKS Kids, a Reebok Foundation organization that provides physical activity opportunities for children before school.
