WWR Article Summary (tl;dr) As A.J. Rao reports, “Following a dream has taken fitness guru and entrepreneur Simone Ware far beyond her Virgin Islands roots.”

At just 30 years old, the St. Croix native has spearheaded a burgeoning, global fitness program — Capri Curves — that is not only growing in numbers across the country and the world, but has since made her a bona fide TV personality, with her own fitness show on Black Entertainment Television.

Indeed, Ware’s journey from Charlotte Amalie High School student to self-described “Fit Queen,” was both a process and a risk, considering she left the territory at age 16, studied criminology at the University of South Florida and landed a stable security job with the federal government.

All things considered, she said, the risk was worth taking.

“I was literally sitting at my desk one day and I was just like ‘I don’t want to do this,’ — I felt like I wasn’t living out my purpose,” Ware said. “So, the next day, I got a vision board and I asked myself ‘if I made all the money in the world and still had to work, what would I do?’ And it was fitness.”

Ware, who taught fitness part-time during her stint in security, said her decision to embrace her passion full-time in 2018 meant starting humbly, sometimes teaching less than a dozen people, mostly family and friends.
