About Amenzone


A workout designed to empower your mind, body and spirit. ~Amen Iseghohi, Owner and Founder of Amenzone Fitness.

Amen Iseghohi, Founder of Amenzone Fitness, developed a physical and spiritual relationship with tires while visiting his Grandmother in West Africa when he was just 8 years old. Without the luxury of big westernized gyms and other fancy machinery to stay physically healthy, all that was available were abandoned tires. In Africa, Amen learned to “Do More, With Less.”

Grandma Nene would say, “A tire is a great symbol of LIFE! In order to progress, we have to keep moving.” Inspired by her philosophy, Amen started Amenzone with One Child and One Tire in a park.

This has since become 2 powerful movements with 1 vision based on the premise of “Using fitness as a vehicle for self-empowerment” The Amenzone Foundation was created to support the fight against childhood obesity by first building self-esteem. Iseghohi believes, “True Healthcare is Self-Care” and the real work comes from within.

Taking the vanity out of fitness, you will find no mirrors at Amenzone. We train for much more than fitness, we Train for Life! Amenzone is best described as a Community where you are inspired and empowered to lead a healthy lifestyle by those you are surrounded by.

Amen’s ultimate goal is to leave a legacy of Self-Care where a workout is seen more as a way to empower your mind, body and spirit. You’re true strength comes from within!
