E! Entertainment Network is on the rise with such hit shows as “Keeping Up with The Kardashians”, Chelsea Handler's “Chelsea Lately” and “E! News with Ryan Seacrest and Guilana Rancic”. This Thursday pop culture meets pop finance in the Forbes Magazine special, “Got Rich Quick”--spotlighting Forbes Riley and her portable SpinGym product (http://www.MySpinGym.com), as well as four other entrepreneurs who have masterfully turned simple ideas from sandals, head phones and rubber bands into must-have multi-million dollar companies.

Originally launched on the Home Shopping Network (HSN) in January 2010, SpinGym® is now sold internationally and is fast becoming a staple of fitness programs--with certified instructors offering classes incorporating SpinGym® into aerobics, kickboxing, Spinning and Pilates. From frequent fliers to desk jockey’s to fitness clubs and rehab centers; SpinGym®’s popularity stems from the fact that it is stylish, compact, portable, and delivers powerful results.

“Over the years I’ve noticed that so many women have weak upper bodies and hate their arms (especially the saggy underarms)--they are embarrassed to go sleeveless. I originally developed the SpinGym for women who didn’t have time to go to the gym or who didn’t have the strength to do proper push-ups and pull-ups. What’s most surprising is that we are now certifying SpinGym Trainers for use in their cardio, kickboxing and Pilates classes. I think SpinGym’s appeal is that it really is an effective total body gym that fits in the palm of your hand” said Forbes Riley.

Recently the Keynote Speaker at the Chicago Black Inventors Conference (CBIC), Forbes made a resounding impression on the over 1,500 attendees who are hoping their inventions become the next must-have product for American households. “It is easy to see how someone with her energy, passion and commitment can become so successful. Forbes belief in SpinGym is infectious, and her enthusiasm for thinking out of the box extremely motivating. Simply one of the most outstanding speakers I’ve ever heard” said CBIC Chairman Calvin Flowers.

From Fox Business to The Strategy Room, and morning television shows nationwide, Forbes Riley is a recurring fitness and lifestyle expert who brings business acumen and real life experience to millions of viewers who find this mother of 7 year old twins captivating and energizing.
