My creative vision was to give viewers a feeling of a virtual Hawaiian vacation, training with me on the beach." says Kiana. "I wanted Kiana's Flex Appeal to be a key source of health and fitness information and to motivate people with attractive, fit & healthy people in a beautiful tropical environment."

My goal for Kiana's Flex Appeal was to motivate at least 1 person to get up off the couch and workout. Guess I accomplished that :) seeing as we reached over 80 million households worldwide and achieved the "highest ratings in the history of the network after only 1 week of airing." (ESPN Programming Dept.)  What a complement for ESPN to Celebrate New Years Day by airing Kiana's Flex Appeal ALL DAY!

Kiana's Flex Appeal was filmed 2-3 times per year in tropical locations such as: Maui, Hawaii, Negril, Jamaica. The entire production crew of 50+ would stay at resorts such as: the Grand Wailea Resort and Spa, the Ritz Carlton, the McKenna Beach Resort and Spa, Swept Away Resort, LaQuinta Resort and Country Club.

Filming would start at sunrise and end at sunset. "I completely over trained, but we had to because we filmed an entire season of television shows in 2-3 weeks." says Kiana.

Hair and makeup started at 5am. Pre production meetings at 6. Cameras roll at 7am. For Kiana and the Cast, lunch would consist of an amazing craft services table of super healthy foods: grilled skinless chicken breasts, hard boiled eggs, local fresh fruit such as pineapple, mango.  "I selected the foods we would eat.  The hotels were so accommodating and always provided delicious healthy food for us." says Kiana. "The crew picked their own food, which was not-so-healthy.  Donuts, muffins, cheeseburgers, hot dogs. Funny thing is as the days went on, the crew became motivated to eat healthier. They started to workout at lunch break instead of sitting on the beach. Everyone including the Crew was in better shape after the shoot. Fitness is contagious." says Kiana. "There was always a crowd of people watching the shows along with security for safety."

We showcased the resorts by filming at 3 locations during the production. For example, Home Gym workouts were usually done on the sand right on the beach using minimal equipment such as weights and a fitness bench. PRO Gym was a more elaborate set up and I had it set up like a state of the art health club on the grass over looking the ocean. I personally selected the Equipment and Fitness Gear for the shows including: Life Fitness, Hammer Strength, Hoist Fitness, York Barbell, IronGrip, Flex and more.

After we wrapped the fitness training segments for the day, I would head to the beach with the videographer and shoot the swimsuit bikini footage that would be edited in before commercial breaks and used for the show opens. On non shooting days I would do television interviews with magazine shows such as: Entertainment Tonight, EXTRA, Inside Edition etc. who visited the set.
