Rank #1: Don "The Dragon" Wilson
Unquestionably, the greatest kickboxing champion of all time, Don “The Dragon” Wilson is the only kick-boxer to win 11 world titles in 3 weight divisions (light-heavyweight, super-light-heavyweight, and cruiserweight) and for 6 sanctioning organizations (WKA, STAR, KCIK ,ISKA, PKD, AND IKF). Along the way, he defeated 11 other world champions, 12 number-one contenders and 15 champions on 4 continents. Don’s impressive career record consists of 71 wins, 47 by knockout, and 6 by kick-knockout, and he was also the first kung-fu practitioner to become a World Kickboxing champion. In 1996, Don was named the Greatest Competitor of All Time by Kickside magazine-Europe. As Don’s phenomenal kickboxing career was winding down, he came to Hollywood at the suggestion of his friend and fellow martial artist, Chuck Norris. After hooking up with agent Ray Cavaleri (who is still his agent), Don got a national commercial, and a stint on the soap opera “General Hospital”. Shortly thereafter came a fateful audition with the legendary filmmaker Roger Corman, who had discovered such talents as William Shatner, Jack Nicholson, and Robert DeNiro. Corman was so impressed with Don’s kickboxing career and his natural charm, that he immediately signed him to a non-exclusive seven movie contract, and Don starred in the huge hit, “Bloodfist”. Since Don was still fighting, Corman actually once insured Don’s face for $10 million with Lloyd’s of London. Don has established himself as a hard working Hollywood action star, having starred in 29 films since his film career began in 1989. He has had as many as five films released within a fourteen month period. His most recent project is a movie entitled “Paying Mr. McGetty.”

She was determined to share that knowledge with other women who were struggling to find the time and energy for proper nutrition and exercise. Bria started a blog called From Fluff 2 Fit in 2013 to share that knowledge.
Her readers found the blog helpful and began reaching out personally asking Bria to help them with their goals.

Rank #18: Mark Warren
Mark Warren, Co-Founder of FitVine Wines, lives about 20 minutes outside of Boston, with his wife and 2 boys, 14 and 9 years old. Before FitVine, Mark had built and sold a tech company that focused on being the behind the scenes support for large companies executing national rollouts of technology products. He has always been involved in fitness at some level since he was a child. Mark began playing soccer at 5 and by the time he was 12, that changed over to a much stricter discipline, TaeKwonDo. He studied intensely for 10 years, 6 days a week, many of those days were 5-6 hours at a time, and competed at a national level for almost 10 years during which he obtained his 4th degree black belt. He continued to train with it on a lesser degree for another handful of years, but in that time frame, worked with and learned a great deal about overall health and fitness from multiple backgrounds. Mark had a break for a few years until 2011 when he discovered CrossFit. CrossFit had almost the same intensity of his early days of training in martial arts and he has been hooked ever since. Now at 40, Mark doesn't have the time to train multiple hours a day and compete, but more to stay healthy and be a good example for his boys. The overall love of fitness is what brought he and his friend and also Co-Founder, Tom Beaton, to search for a healthy solution to incorporating alcohol into fitness. They’ve always been huge wine fans and knew that wine in essence, already had healthy components to it and how could they improve upon that and bring it to the fitness and active community…hence, FitVine Wine was born.

Rank #19: Zach Slobin
Madly in love with his wife. Natural philosopher. And producer of his own life. These three things pretty much sum up Zach Slobin and his insatiable desire to knock, question the everyday rules and then bend life to create massive freedom, joy, and abundance. After weathering life’s natural ups and downs, being lost in “finding his purpose,” and navigating through the inevitable entrepreneurial storms, he can tell you the stories of hitting several physical, emotional, spiritual and financial bottoms. He’s the athlete who almost went pro, but severe injuries kept him from his dream. He’s the top guy who walked away from a good corporate job (and the money), because it was suffocating. He’s the man who wouldn’t settle until he found his soulmate. And he’s the entrepreneur who was so committed to excellence, he created financial freedom at just 34 years of age. Grateful for the lessons all the losses have taught him, one thing is for sure–he can show you how you to play the game of life and win it. As a Master Speaker, Trainer and Coach, Zach’s greatest thrill in life is showing people how to go from where they are to where they deserve to be by removing the BS lies they tell themselves, so they can be, do and have ANYTHING they desire.
