Meet Forbes Riley, an actress, infomercial host and creator of the Spin Gym. See photos, video and read a biography of Forbes Riley here.
Forbes Riley is in the news today as the charming infomercial host revealed her own invention, the SpinGym, on the Discovery Channel’s show, Pitchmen.
“It was a thrill to be part of Discovery’s PITCHMEN, as infomercials is gain recognition as a viable way to market new products. My dad was an inventor who could never get his products to market, and though he’s been gone for almost 9 years, I think he’s smiling down as I launch my very first one. SpinGym is turning out to be an inspiration for so many people who have been frustrated with saggy upper arms. I’m often asked how I stay in shape as a busy working mom – and my philosophy has always been ‘do what you can, when you can” – so taking the stairs instead of the elevator, passing on the bread at dinner, but now with SpinGym in your pocket – you really can get a quick effective workout in, anytime, anywhere.”
The product itself weighs less than a pound, and offers up to 20 pounds of resistance with every pull. You can see how the SpinGym works in the video beow.
As a biography, Forbes Riley was born on April 25, 1960, in Brooklyn, New York, so her age is 49. Wow, she looks incredible for being 49 years old! She grew up in Long Island, New York, and at the age of 16 she became Miss Teenage New York. She went on to represent the state in the Miss Teenage America pageant.
Riley has beauty and brains, having skipped an entire grade while in high school. She went on to attend the University of Rochester, and graduated in three short years with double degrees in Political Science and Film Studies.
After graduating from the University of Rochester, she responded to an ad in the New York film trade paper, Dramalogue, and ended up with the lead role in the low budget film, Splatter University, released in 1984.
Riley is widely known as the infomercial host for the Jack LaLane Power Juicer. She has appeared in numerous infomercials, hawking products such as the “MaxiGlide” hair straightener, Tony Horton’s “Power 90″ fitness program and the “QuietClean” air purifier, just to name a few.
