Modu Seye has turned his passion for fitness into a thriving global business. An international fitness trainer to some of the world’s recognized celebrities and influencers and a consultant to renowned resorts and hotels, Modu’s personal and business successes can be attributed to his positive mindset, work ethic, and coming from adversity.
A native of Senegal, West Africa, Modu started his journey in Omaha, Nebraska, as an international student.

After graduation, Modu landed a job as a programmer and was also a professional model who represented brands. A few years into his IT career, he took a big risk, abandoned his high-paying job, and moved to Los Angeles, California, in the pursuit of his dreams and passions. A little while after that, he launched his own sports clothing line and protein supplements and founded Moduvated Fitness Club. In a matter of time, Modu has built the brand to a powerful global brand and helps people live a healthy life through fitness programs, nutrition, and wellness. His company also consults and designs gyms for other fitness groups and partners.
