    From Game Winner to Game Changer with Oditte Odisho

    Episode 174 - “O.D.”, more simply known as Oditte, is a Certified Personal Trainer in Canada. Prior to becoming a personal trainer, O.D. attended Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on a NCAA Division I Basketball scholarship where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. From the combined experiences of her athletic life and academic life comes her personal philosophy: to help ourselves, we must work from the inside out - in order to achieve our goals, we must train our mind first and our body second. It’s that same mentality that she brings to personal training, helping her clients combine physical and mental training to achieve their highest potential. 

    Before establishing her fitness brand @bodybyod, Oditte Odisho played at the highest level of College Basketball despite the obstacles in her way. Learn more about how her journey from Tel Tamer to Ontario and all over the US shaped who she is today.

First time listener

I just listened to the episode on atheism and found myself wanting to jump into the conversation. This is what, I believe, makes an entertaining and engaging podcast. If the rest of the episodes are like this one, you’ve got yourself a fan. Thanks. I’m off to listen to more episodes.

Great Content! Focus on the COE most interesting

Overall a great podcast! I would love to hear more content on various aspects of the Church of the East, if possible. Keep up the great work!
