Wale Dada is the owner and founder of Takeover Fitness. Athletics and fitness have always been his passion. Mental fortitude as well as physical performance have been instrumental to his success. Wale attended Washington State University and was a starter on their Division 1 – Pacific 12 Conference football team.

After a stellar career as a collegiate athlete, he entered into the NFL as an undrafted free agent and played for the New York Jets, Seattle Seahawks, New Orleans Saints, Denver Broncos and NFL Europe in Germany. Wale also played in the CFL for the Edmonton Eskimos and UFL with the Las Vegas Locos. Football enabled Wale to travel the world, meet diverse people and learn different training techniques. He has developed the knowledge and skills gained throughout his career in athletics to benefit all of the Takeover Athletes! He believes the optimal way to train is like an athlete, both mentally and physically.

Wale makes it his personal initiative to do everything he can to help all of the Takeover athletes reach and exceed their goals through innovative and motivational training. His motto is to “Believe in the BEAST (yourself),” because if you don’t NO ONE ELSE WILL!!
