There is no doubt about it: we have definitely entered a Women Empowerment era, and whether you turn on your TV, browse on the internet and the social media, there is always a woman dominating the scene and telling the truth like it is. Luckily, Carlos Zappien seized the opportunity to contribute to the growth of women empowerment, creating a concept called Fit In Your Dress, to help women of all walks of life to obtain their ideal body and healthy weight through learning to live a healthy lifestyle.
“I grew up watching all the women around me trying different diets only to get very unfit, unhealthy and ultimately frustrated. I saw them have kids, go in recovery after surgery, get overworked and tired without the time nor knowledge of how to live healthy”, shared Carlos.
Carlos is the president and founder of Westmount Solutions Inc.; a company offering information technology consulting and web development, Trainbright Fitness Inc.; an online Platform to find the best boxing and weights workout, and, Purple Empower Inc., a company focused on empowering women in work, business and fitness, currently focusing on their project: Fitinyourdress.com
We first met him at the Montreal School Of Performing Arts BBQ, summer of 2014 playing with his rock band he promoted through CAHZ Productions, a label he created in 2008. He went to Abbey Road Studios in London to work on his album, toured and worked with tremendously talented people in the music industry. Today, he shares his time between writing music, boxing and managing his companies.
“I still play and write music almost every day. Otherwise I go crazy. I don’t perform live as much, but we will be getting back in the studio this Fall to start recording our new album”, shared Carlos.
Making waves all over Montreal with both his music and business careers, Carlos Zappien was invited on June 19th, 2016, to talk about his new concept Fitinyourdress.com, live on Brunch Latino, a show airing on CISM 89,3fm.
During the show, Carlos described to the host, Elkin Polo, his fitness-wellness program to help women of all ages get fit and healthy and of course, help them “fit in their favourite dress”. The website just launched this summer and is now rapidly growing in lifestyle content, sharing beauty tips, recipes, inspirational stories of women who got back to work after recovering from disabilities and also advises on how to deal with sexual harassment. “We focus on helping busy women getting fit, reorient their lifestyle, I want this to be an example for my 10 year old daughter”, shared Carlos. But that doesn’t stop there. Carlos also mentioned that he is working with organizations and companies to create scholarship programs for girls to attend University, and, a similar program to help women entrepreneurs jump-start their online business, starting with his daughter.
Quite the catch, isn’t he? Well ladies, when you get a chance, go take a look at the website to see what’s new. As for Carlos, he will be appearing on CJAD 800 Solo In The City show with Cheryl Besner September 17 and 24.
