The Beauty Marketplace’s January Breakout Talent of the Month is Fitness Expert Marc Perry.

Marc Perry first caught The Beauty Marketplace’s eye via his promotional fitness flyers he would distribute in a popular health food restaurant in Manhattan called Natureworks. After doing more research, we discovered Marc and his BuiltLean program have all the elements of a Breakout Fitness Talent: Mass market appeal, an interesting background story, and an effective branded workout regimen.

Marc Perry is a Yale graduate and former finance analyst who ditched Wall Street for a career in Fitness in order to teach people the truth about body transformation and a healthy lifestyle.

The Beauty Marketplace was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to ask Marc some questions as he was preparing for the New Year and below is what he had to say.

The Beauty Marketplace: Elaborate on what ultimately motivated you to take the entrepreneurial leap and leave finance to become an expert in fitness.

Marc Perry: I had a lot of motivations, but deep down I knew I was not reaching my potential in finance and I never would. I wanted to build something that could positively change the world. Fitness is something I’ve always loved and has been very important to me. I reasoned that helping people achieve their fitness goals and inspiring others to get excited about fitness is a mission to which I can happily dedicate my life.

The Beauty Marketplace: What are both your fitness and career goals heading into 2015?

Marc Perry:

My career goals this year are:
1) To write at least one article per week and produce at least one video per month
2) Hire a full-time employee to help manage the operations and marketing implementation for my company
3) Develop more revenue streams that can scale while refining and creating more products and services

I have several fitness goals, here are a few:
1) Touching my hands behind my back on both sides
2) Pistol squat with both legs
3) 100 snatches in 5 minutes with 24kg kettlebell
4) Become SFG certified
5) Become NASM-CES certified

The Beauty Marketplace: We think you are on to something with workouts for busy professionals! Can you identify any fitness trends you have noticed that you think may increase in popularity heading into 2015?

Marc Perry: One trend that I think is very beneficial to everyone including busy professionals is the functional fitness trend, which will continue to become more important When I say “functional fitness”, I don’t mean doing biceps curls while standing on a bosu ball, but emphasizing quality of movement and exercises that directly translate into improved strength and performance like a kettlebell swing, push-ups, or pull ups. Approaching the body as a bunch of separate muscles to train individually is an inferior approach for longevity and athletic performance than using the body as one piece – in my opinion.

The Beauty Marketplace:  What are some of your favorite Health and Fitness brands?

Marc Perry: Some fitness brands and products I like:
StrongFirst
Spartan Race
Mobility WOD
Captains of Crush Grippers
RadRoller
TRX

The Beauty Marketplace:  Do you have a grooming routine or any specific products you use or tips to share?

Marc Perry: When I first moved to New York City, I’m not sure I knew what grooming meant. My toiletry bag was pretty empty. But as I’ve gotten older and after some advice from a woman I dated, for cleaning my face I use proactive, a vitamin C serum by Anthony, and a Nivea Q10 moisturizer. The moisturizer in particular makes a significant difference in how my skin looks. Other than that, for dental hygiene I brush my teeth, floss using floss picks, and use Listerine. For my hair I use a hair gel from Dramatics NYC called Drama Putty and shave every morning.

MARCH/APRIL Breakout Brand

Although it may not feel like it as of late, the warm weather is a coming! Spring showers, followed by longer days, will ultimately all lead up to beach season, and baring your bod in a bathing suite. Will you be ready this year?

Slim by ProskinsI want to do my part in helping you get there by introducing you to a Breakout Brand that will help you win the war against cellulite. The March/April Breakout Brand – Proskins SLIM

Proskins SLIM can help to reduce cellulite without the use of surgery or creams. An innovative clothing line featuring leggings, capris, shorts and tops have built in elements which help reduce the appearance of cellulite.

The slimming apparel is made from a patented micro-encapsulated micro fibre containing active ingredients including caffeine (a proven anti-cellulite treatment), aloe vera, retinol, and vitamin E. These ingredients, combined with the high tech compression improves the overall skin condition, leaving your skin feeling soft, smooth and firm.

British mogul, Neil French, co-founder of Proskins SLIM, along with his brother Charlie, has a long history in the textile industry. In 2005, after years of working for major brands in the field of performance apparel, French decided to invent his own textile brand. Working with one of the most advanced sport science testing institutes in the UK, Neil and Charlie began to research problems athletes often face post exercise and realized they were the same issue faced by those with sedentary lifestyles – i.e. poor lymphatic drainage, fluid retention, and insufficient circulation – all

factors that often result in increased cellulite. Ultimately, out of these studies, Proskins SLIM, made with the new compression technology, was born.

I used my pair of Proskins SLIM leggings while sleeping, as well as engaging in sports. I noticed Proskins SLIM smoothed and firmed my skin in just about one week. The microencapsulated fabric is guaranteed for at least 100 washes, and also contains silver – an antibacterial treatment for extended and improved life of the garment.

Proskins, currently available internationally, are sold in the US at www.proskinus.com. With prices ranging from just $80 to $120, there is no reason you should not grab a pair and get your butt to the gym! Here’s to warmer weather and firmer skin…

Have an Honestly Beautiful Day,

<33 Mary

CHADY DUNMORE The Beauty Marketplace MARCH Breakout Brand

The first two months of 2012 came and went faster than you can say the word swimsuit. Now, as we look toward spring, it is time to get our bikini bodies and diets whipped into gear, and I know just the person/brand that can get you there.

The The Beauty Marketplace Breakout Brand for the Month of March is Chady Dunmore. What drew me to Chady was her story, in addition to her intrinsic ability to whip any body, no matter the shape or size, into impeccable shape.

Chady Dunmore knows first hand the challenges, women in particular face, and what it takes to motivate them. Chady battled kidney disease her entire life. After having a struggle to get pregnant, she weighed in at 207 lbs. She started training at home, while her baby was asleep, and began to lose the weight. She then took on a new chapter in her life and started competing in the fitness industry, without relying on fad diets and extreme exercise routines.

Dunmore is a two-time bikini world champion and a top fitness model who has graced covers of Oxygen, Fitness RX, and more.
