SHELLIE BLANKS CIMAROSTI
Shellie Blanks Cimarosti is not just the daughter of Billy Blanks, she’s been at his side since the inception of Tae Bo® Fitness. Her knowledge, dedication and guidance have been an asset for the continued growth of this intoxicating fitness regimen.
Shellie put in plenty of time working toward her mastery of Martial Arts, beginning her training at the age of 2 and continuing to this day. At the tender age of 14, Shellie went on to win the Jiu Jitsu World Championship as well as a Gold Medal at the Junior Olympics for Full Contact Sparring. Currently she is a part of a select club that only a few, hardworking, dedicated women have attained by acquiring a 6th Degree Black Belt in the Martial Arts discipline of Tae Kwon Do.
Shellie has been fortunate enough to have acting, modeling and stunt doubling opportunities such as stunt doubling for the Yellow Power Ranger in the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, appearing on television shows such as “The Parkers”, “Oprah” & “Montell Williams”, and modeling for fitness magazines.
Shellie now resides in Tennessee with her husband and two children, and has opened the first Team Tae Bo® Gym. Throughout her life, Shellie has continued to foster her career as a Master Tae Bo® Fitness Instructor, a 6th degree Tae Kwon Do Black Belt, and personal trainer to many. The long list includes business executives, professional athletes and celebrities such as: Shaquille O’Neal, Wayne Gretzky, Magic Johnson, Brooke Shields, Robert Downy Jr, Queen Latifah, Elizabeth Hasselbeck, Jessica Alba, Goldie Hawn, Jessica Biel, Kate Hudson, Kim Kardashian, Carmen Electra, Lisa Marie Presley, Slash (Gun n Roses), Jordan Knight (NKOTB), Ricky Bell (BBD), Anna Nicole Smith, Denise Richards, David Alan Grier, Mr T, Lou Diamond Phillips, Bette Midler, Ryan O’Neal, Mo’Nique, James Toney (Boxing Champion), Kris Jenner, Rodney Pete (Pro Football), & David Hasselhoff.
Shellie continues to travel internationally; training, instructing and demonstrating the world-renowned technique of Tae Bo® Fitness; which was created by her father, Billy Blanks.
