Interview with Kiana Tom
The Star of ESPN's Kiana's Flex Appeal
Fit and Pretty Example of Success!


KIANA'S LIFE AND TIMES ON ESPN - PART 3

Tell us about your book "Kiana's Body Sculpting?"

Kiana's latest book on body sculpting and fitness The book is in its 3rd printing. I am writing another one (See the picture for further info). There are limited quantities left, we sell them autographed for $19.95 +$6s/h. 1888 HIKIANA. www.kiana.com. It has over 100 fully illustrated photos, workout routines, trouble area training, recipes!!!!!

Elaborate on the difference between bodybuilding and body sculpting?

Body building is trying to increase muscle size; building bigger muscles. Body Sculpting is sculpting your body like art, not necessarily bigger

How do you cater to different types of people with different types of workouts, with segments such as "pro gym" and "cross training?" What is your secret?

My co-workers and I summarize the thousands of emails so that we know what viewers want to learn. It's a learning process in itself.

How do you deal with all the fans since it is reportedly being aired in more than 75 million homes worldwide and one of the most regularly watched workout shows in the history of cable? Is your show(s) still listed in Entertainment Weekly's top 10 cable shows this year?

I am recognized most everywhere I go and want ot be gracious and friendly to everyone I meet. However, there are times when I need private time and don't ant to make small talk to everyone. I once read a famous celebrity say: if you don't feel like being pleasant and meeting the public-stay at home. That is my motto. I don't want to be one of those people who have their photos in the tabloids, shoving a cameraman or pushing away an autograph seeker. As long as people are respectful, it's part of the notoriety and it's wonderful. I travel with a body guard or manager who acts as a shield from those who are to aggressive.

How do you work together with Penn State University in regards to your show and books?

We compile a list of all the topics we want to cover and Dr. William kramer and his team provide us with the elaborate information that is the most current and up to date.

Tell us why you got into a line of active wear?

I love clothes and couldn't find comfortable, cute active wear I liked, so I designed my own. Most people don't realize it, but it's alot of work and inventory with diff. colors and sizes. I wish I had the time to create wild animal print clothing, that would be fun.

What new shows are you planning to have in 2001?

    Are you still involved with "The Fitness Universe Pageant?" Tell us about this?

    No, I was contracted to host the Fitness America Pageant for ESPN/ESPN2. It was not a pleasant experience working with that production. ESPN is wonderful, but the pageant wasn't run very organized.

    Tell us about your fitness magazine show and what it is all about?

    It will have the same foundation as FLex Appeal, but with the addition of professional athlete interviews/workouts, celebrity interviews/workouts, cooking, fashions, sex appeal and flash! The show will fly by and fill your mind with images of bodies, fitness, health and well being and you will not be able to wait to go and workout and be your best!

    Why did you start your "Fitness Team" membership?

    To help people access recipes and have diff workout routines to do every month.

    Tell us about your fitness CD Roms that talks about your workouts, tips, recipes, screensavers, fashion, etc.?
