Angel.cat.tank.top.Feb.2014Michael now lives in New York, where he runs a gym he co-founded called Aerospace NYC. His client list includes Brazilian fashion supermodel Adriana Lima, who has walked the catwalk wearing clothing from Desigual’s Spring-Summer 2014 collection, which just arrived at Angel.

Michael is a personal trainer who uses no fitness machines. Instead he uses shadow boxing and skip ropes to get models in “fighting shape” so they can fit into sample sizes for the fashion show runway. He’s been working with Adriana Lima for seven years. Here’s a video of Michael and Adriana demonstrating her workout:Here’s Adriana Lima in the Desigual fashion show in Barcelona, showing off the new spring-summer styles for 2014: Olajide was a highly ranked middleweight boxer until an injury left him legally blind in his right eye, ending his career.
