Arnold Oyuru was asthmatic and suffered from incessant chest pains and breathing complications throughout his childhood. He had to rely on an inhaler for a good night’s sleep.
When he finished high school, Mr Oyuru began jogging daily so as to join the Armed Forces.
“Even though the exercises didn’t get me into the army, they changed my life. I began sleeping well throughout the night, the asthma attacks reduced and I stopped relying on medication,” he says.
“And just like that, I decided that this is what I wanted to do in life; help people prevent, manage and treat health problems using physical exercises.”
He opened Mofit, a health fitness and wellness consulting firm six years ago and works with doctors who send patients struggling with obesity, hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, depression and bone or muscle problems like chronic back pain, a common problem among the working class.
