Shellie Blanks Cimarosti is not just the daughter of Billy Blanks, Shellie has been Billy’s right hand since the creation of Tae Bo® Fitness. Shellie is and will continue to be a trailblazer like her father. She is one of the 1st in an elite group of female fitness experts. Since the age of 2, Shellie has been training and learning to master, not just Martial Arts, but The Art of Physicality. At an age when most young girls were playing with dolls or learning how to apply make-up, Shellie was working hard and training everyday. All that work paid off when at just 14 years old Shellie took the Jiu Jitsu World Championship, and the Gold Medal at the Junior Olympics in full contact sparring. She is among a select group of women that hold a 6th degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do and she is of course a Master in Tae Bo® Fitness. Shellie’s knowledge and experience is vast in the athletic world and between that and her amazing heart and spirit, Shellie makes a great motivational speaker, and event host.

Shellie’s talents aren’t just of the physical, she starred as the original Yellow Power Ranger’s stunt double, modeled in numerous fitness magazines, and has appeared in commercials and T.V spots such as:
“Oprah”, “Montel Williams”, and “The Parkers”, just to name a few.

Shellie trains an array of clients that consist of business executives, professional athletes, and celebrities. She recently opened the first Team Tae Bo® Fitness Gym in Franklin, Tennessee, where she currently lives with her husband, and 2 children.

When Shellie isn’t training at her Team Tae Bo® Fitness Gym or being a wife and mother of two. This world-renowned fitness expert travels internationally, training, instructing, and demonstrating the techniques of Tae Bo® Fitness.

Shellie has gained notoriety for her expertise in Tae Bo® Fitness, and for being the athletically gifted daughter of Billy Blanks. Although training and teaching has become her full time career, she does hosting, appearances, and speaking engagements where she can motivate, and inspire. And as Shellie likes to say, “I’m changing the world one person at a time”.
