Celebrity Fitness Instructor Charity Lynette, whose amazing workout and diet programs have been featured on national TV, radio, and in major magazines such as NY Daily News, Black Enterprise, First For Women,,, Hip Hop Weekly (7x), Centric TV and more, has personally shed an astonishing 110 pounds using her brand’s specially developed weight-loss techniques and fitness principles. After losing her mother due to illnesses brought on by an unhealthy lifestyle, and Charity weighing 305 pounds at the time, Ms. Lynette decided to make a change, and set out to slim down. “I lost about 30 lbs just doing cardio. But I wasn’t satisfied with the results,” Ms. Lynette recalls, “so then I started in with the weight training, and concentrated more on eating clean, and I was able to take off another 40 lbs which I gained back. It wasn’t until I started running, that I was able to get off the last 35. I now maintain my current weight with a balance of weight training, running, and dancing.” Following this regimen, Ms. Lynette was able to slim down to a shapely 180 pounds! The beginning of Curvy Chick Fitness started two years ago, which quickly grew to include a stylish new clothing line deal, with garments tailored to accentuate natural shapes, and recently added a special Running Club that takes fitness to the streets of Brooklyn, NY. Ms. Lynette says her workouts and diet training benefit all women. “We all have different body types but as long as we are eating right and exercising, the body will take it’s course. All women have curves,” she emphasizes, “but it’s healthy curves we want to keep in mind.”

These exercises are the core of the Curvy Chick Fitness Program, which has toured all over the nation with great success. As a fitness instructor to the stars, Ms. Lynette has helped many notables of stage and screen to acquire and maintain a fit, toned look that lets them keep up with their demanding celebrity lifestyle. Curvy Chick Fitness also works with everyday people who want to improve their looks and health, with a 45-minute class that’s designed for everyone. Participants are also coached on healthy eating, with food and nutrition Q & A sessions, and tips on meal planning, so once the weight comes off, it stays off.

Ms. Lynette also recognizes the importance of a healthy workforce, and Curvy Chick Fitness Office Workouts fit the bill to let workers know their employers care about their well-being. The benefits of on-the-job fitness are clear: reduced absenteeism and turnover, greater productivity, improved morale, and lower healthcare costs, all make businesses more competitive and profitable. Curvy Chick Fitness offers two types of workplace programs: a 45-minute cardio/dance workout, or a boot-camp style regimen, oriented towards male employees. It’s all part of the total commitment to wellness that is a hallmark of Ms. Lynette’s growing brand. “At the end of the day it’s about balance, consistency, and treating your body like it’s the only one you got,” Ms. Lynette observes.

IndustryEventWire had the chance to interview Empowerment Coach/Speaker Nichole Bess, a born leader hailing from Baltimore, MD and mom of two.

Industryeventwire: Being from Baltimore what would you say to the people that would need a message of Empowerment right now, still dealing with the Baltimore Riots?

Nicole Bess: I would tell everyone to love each other, get closer. Hold on to one another. We know change may not come through causing disturbance in our communities. We must take the discussion to the right people and continue to seek proper channels of communication.

Industryeventwire: Can we discuss your transition into the Showroom and how you began working with people like super model Naomi Campbell, and entertainment moguls Russell and Kimora Lee Simons?

Nicole Bess: I began my career in fashion, in New York. While working as an intern for Russell and Kimora Lee Simons, during New York Fashion Week, I was introduced to super model Naomi Campbell. Shortly thereafter, I began working for Campbell’s PR firm, NC Connect. It was there I discovered my love for public relations and in 4 short months I opened my own firm. Although I studied Fashion Design and Marketing at the International Academy of Design, PR came to me so naturally.

Industryeventwire: Did you leave fashion altogether when you started PR?

Nicole Bess: I didn’t leave fashion, I became a Fashion Publicist, and a very good one. I was able to land some major placements for clients such as CNN, Ebony, 106 & Park, CBS and Cosmopolitan, just to name a few, but the one that really gave me that Aha Moment was seeing the placement in Italian Vogue. That’s a PR dream. LOL. Also while doing PR I never could shake the feeling of support for the Indie Designers, so I opened a showroom in Atlanta. I will never forget the feeling of putting on my first Fashion Show during New York Fashion Week and being able to use the designers that I worked closely with at my showroom.

Industryeventwire: Wow, that’s amazing. So we see that you are an Empowerment Coach as well. How did that come about?

Nicole Bess: Well although I had alot going on in my life I still felt “I was doing alot of filling but I wasn’t feeling fulfilled”. I still wanted to help others, Motivate, Give Back, Empower. I adopted the philosophy “You Better Own it”. I now have my signature talk and tour entitled “OWNit”- Set to sweep the nation starting tomorrow Thursday, September 3rd. This global tour will host a variety of women known for leadership, entrepreneurship, finding purpose and healing. My Goal is to provide a life-changing environment for women to engage in networking and being empowered. But Everyone is welcome, not just the ladies. Fellows you can learn from this amazing tour. You too can heal where it hurts because the reward from your persistence is greater than what you have from letting your past keep you still and silent. We want everyones life to create a picture that inspires everyone else but most importantly, we want your life to create a picture you love no matter where you’ve been, what you’ve done, or what’s been done to you.

Industryeventwire: Well Thank you Ms. Bess and is there anything else you want them to know, maybe what’s next or your social media?

Nicole Bess: Yes, I am scheduled to release my first gift-sized book Christmas of 2015 entitled, “Remember When”. Please look out for that. Also, you can find me throughout social media @nicolembess

Industryeventwire: Great, Thank you again and we would like to thank Areina Plowden for setting this up for us. Have a wonderful tour and we will be watching.
