Launching Forbes Factor Live

2017-11-03T12:14:19+00:00 Friday, November 3, 2017|Tags: , , , |

When we first purchased the building that was to become the Forbes Riley production studios it was a bit of a gamble and leap of faith into the unknown.   I had longed dreamed about creating a space where I could perform, or film, or hold classes but with the launch of our fitness company SpinGym my focus was split and then I was crazy raising twin toddlers. We purchased the building and began the buildout with the back half being the "studio" and the front half being office and the coolest conference room I could imagine - its round, white, with a wall painted as a white board.  It turned out better than I could imagined. Then what to do with it -- luckily I had some amazing girlfriends who came to my rescue - in particular were Daphne Street and Leslie Belcher.  Over lunch I outlined this dream I had to teach and coach and transform the lives of people (okay, specifically women) but I was open.  Within months of talking about this vision we created to completely unique and amazing programs.  The first was Forbes Factor - an interactive one day, life changing experience.  We had [...]

Every once in a while you just meet someone who dramatically changes your life. I met Forbes through a mutual Los Angeles acquaintance and we began to know each other a little better from Facebook and phone conversations. It was the phone call that I had with her a few weeks ago to interview her for this article, where the little fat food and bad exercise switch went off and the healthy habit switch went on. I called Forbes today to tell her that I was having trouble writing the article about her because I needed to go back and get quotes because about ½ way through the interview I stopped writing and just started listening to her intensely. After a two hour conversation, I realized I had like 2 pages of notes and was in trouble. I called today and she said, “I just got off the phone with someone telling me I changed their life forever.” I said, “Well, Forbes, it’s gonna be an even better day because I’m calling to tell you that too. First I need to tell you that I need better quotes from you from our conversation. But before I do that I need [...]

Forbes NEW Movie – Paying Mr. McGetty

2017-08-12T15:49:04+00:00 Saturday, September 10, 2016|Tags: , , , |

    Last year's momentous run of director Michael Baumgarten's anti-bullying drama, The Martial Arts Kid, is now paving the way for Traditionz Films's newest contribution to the film front with the new action comedy, Paying Mr. McGetty. Don "The Dragon" Wilson will be returning to the fray along with actor and stuntman R. Marcos Taylor now debuting in a lead role after briefly going toe-to-toe in Baumgarten's previous film. Those of you none too familiar with Taylor can currently spot him in F. Gary Gray's Straight Outta Compton in a winning performance as Suge Knight. Here, from a script by Baumgarten and co-scribe Adam Marsh, Taylor stars as Tyrell, a floundering music producer who wakes up one morning next to a mysterious woman and no recollection of the evening prior, along with a phone call from his girlfriend over an eviction notice, and mobsters looking for him at the behest of a local top crime boss.

So WHO is Forbes Riley?

2017-08-12T15:49:05+00:00 Friday, September 2, 2016|Tags: , , , |

If you look up in the dictionary the words “perseverance and determination”, there is a picture of Forbes Riley.  As a little girl she overcame a disfiguring accident, having her mother being held hostage by gunpoint in her home, and a tragic accident that landed her father in the hospital for over 3 years while she was a teenager.  While most young girls in her position might have thrown in the towel, Forbes learned early on the power of forging ahead, even when there is no end in sight and everyone tells you it’s not possible.  Another major obstacle Forbes fought was her weight – now to most people that’s a typical struggle, but when you have dreams of being a Broadway dancer and actress it became monumental.  She worked in spite of hurtful comments and rejection and acted in TV (24, The Practice), movies, hosted TV shows (ESPN’s X-Games, her own talk show on TLC, and a series for ABC Family.  Finally, after two decades of humiliation she managed to turn her weight and eating around when at age 42 she gave birth to 7-pound twins and co-hosted the Jack Lalanne Juicer infomercial, which aired worldwide for 8 [...]

My Favorite Food Infomercial

2017-08-12T15:49:08+00:00 Tuesday, July 5, 2016|Tags: , , , |

  I've hosted a lot of infomercials in my time, but this was by far one of my ALL time favorites - Why? I got to include my whole family for the very first time.  The product was a frozen food home delivery company (they shall remain nameless as the show tested well and they decided NOT to roll it out because (as I was told) they did n't want to grow the business that fast -- go figure! The pictures say it all and I'm sorry the world didn't get to enjoy this show - it was a true sit-com!
