NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Oct 28, 2013) — TNA’s very own bombshell Knockouts’ leader and IMPACT ring announcer Christy Hemme is featured in a 6-page spread of the November issue of Flex Magazine, the world’s number one hardcore bodybuilding magazine, available on newsstands today. In it, readers will step behind the desk and inside the ring with this multi-talented wrestling icon and creative leader as she shares her passion for work and fitness, complete with diet tips and revealing behind-the-scenes secrets from the world of wrestling.
“I was inspired to show our IMPACT Wrestling fans a different side of me that they don’t get to see all of the time and introduce the Flex fans to what I consider the best company,” explains Hemme. “I am so excited to share how passionately involved I am in not only being a TNA talent but also a leader behind the scenes.”
But readers be forewarned – you may be sidetracked from the words in the profile, as the feature includes seven eye-popping photographs, shot by TNA Photographer Lee South, of Hemme in the ring, at the TNA office and on the streets of the famed Printers Alley in her new hometown, Nashville, Tenn. Creating, planning and bringing a vision to life is what Hemme does best, which is why Flex Magazine gave her carte blanche for the magazine shoot.
“As I watched the photo shoot, Christy moved instinctually and needed little help from the photographer,” said Durand. “There were so many amazing shots, it was very difficult to not want to use them all. It is very rare to find a professional like Christy Hemme who is so charismatic and beautiful, we are so excited for readers to enjoy this feature in our November issue,” said Flex Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, Robbie Durand.
Whether eating a healthful protein bar or ostrich stick on the road with TNA, or grabbing a slice of pizza with friends, Hemme understands the meaning of balance in her nutrition and in her life. As a model-turned musician-turned wrestler-turned businesswoman, her do-it-all attitude combined with an unparalleled drive makes her unstoppable, as writer Anita Nikolich captures in the profile:
“Her unabashed enthusiasm for living life to the fullest, coupled with a creative vision and boundless energy, has led her to put her mark in corners of the industry rarely touched by professional athletes”
Hemme is the first TNA Knockout to be featured in Flex, which is owned by American Media, Inc. As a companion to Hemme’s Flex feature, she will also be seen, alongside TNA Knockouts Champion and wife of Food Network star Robert Irvine, Gail Kim, in a video series available at Muscle &Fitness Hers online next month.
