Qimmah Russo Wiki Bio
Qimmah Russo was born in New York City, USA, on 16 December 1993 – her zodiac sign is Sagittarius, and she holds American nationality. She’s a fitness instructor, model and a social media star, perhaps known best for her online fitness course Q-Flex Fitness.
Early life, family and education
Qimmah grew up in New York City, where she received her primary education. She became physically active at a young age, which comes as no surprise, considering that almost everyone in her family was involved in sports. Qimmah’s mother is a professional field hockey player, while her father played baseball. Furthermore, her brother, Tamir, used to play football, but is today known for posting car and motorcycle content on TikTok and YouTube.
As a teenager, Qimmah became interested in basketball, and even played for her high school’s team. Through her high school years, she also competed in track, played volleyball competitively and attended dance classes. After matriculating, she enrolled at the College of Canyons in Santa Clarita, California, where she majored in sociology and kinesiology. Qimmah kept her basketball career going through her college years, but stopped playing after graduating in 2015. However, she remained in sports, switching to weightlifting, which would shape her future career.
Career as a fitness model and instructor
A few months into her weightlifting journey, Qimmah started making short videos which showcased her progress, and uploading them onto the now-defunct video sharing platform, Vine.
It didn’t take long for her videos to go viral, and for Qimmah to start collaborating with other Vine stars, such as Melvin Gregg, Alphonso McCauley and Klarity.
After Vine was discontinued in 2016, she moved her content to Instagram, on which she attracted more than a million followers in a very short time. Her popularity on Instagram led her to collaborating with numerous clothing brands, including Fashion Nova, EHPLabs and RyderWear; she’s now represented by the Fortune Forever talent agency.
Her knowledge in weightlifting led Qimmah to start working as a personal trainer at a local gym.
As her popularity on social media grew, she wanted to reach out to more people, and help them with their training and diet, so in partnership with her mom, she created the fitness company Q-Flex Fitness, through which they provide workout and meal plans aimed at both men and women at various skill levels. Additionally, she offers motivational videos, which help her clients stick to their designed fitness routines. She also has a personal website, where her clients can choose to participate in 14-, 30- or 60-day fitness challenges, which promise great results in a limited time frame.
She has recently launched her limited series on the Zeus Network, entitled “The Qimmah Show”, which consists of four episodes, during which she engages in a workout, while talking about various topics.
Qimmah’s approach to training is a combination of strength and cardio exercises. She likes to blend the two in a way that engages the entire body, so she does a lot of body weight exercises and calisthenics. She isn’t a big fan of cardio machines on the other hand, as she believes that they enable people to ‘be lazy’.
As per weightlifting, Qimmah likes to maintain a solid mind-muscle connection. Whenever she notices that one part of her body isn’t improving the way she expected, she switches up her routine, by changing the weight, going for a different number of repetitions in a set, or trying an entirely new exercise.
Her favorite exercises are classic squats, because they engage all the largest muscle groups – legs, glutes and back.
Her approach is somewhat untraditional though, as she usually tries to do as many squats as she can in 30 seconds, as opposed to doing four sets of 10-12 repetitions, as recommended by other fitness gurus.
Qimmah is quite strict when it comes to her diet, and avoids eating processed carbohydrates and sugar; some of her favorite foods are avocados, low-fat cheese and dark chocolate. She is completely committed to a healthy lifestyle, and never drinks alcohol or smokes.
Qimmah is very popular on Instagram, with her account ‘@qimmahrusso’ numbering almost two million followers, with over 7,900 posts. She likes to upload a lot of pictures and videos from the gym, while she also often posts provocative bikini selfies.
In March last year, Qimmah launched her TikTok account, ‘@qimahtherapy’, which has since amassed almost 200,000 followers, and more than 760,000 ‘likes’.
She is somewhat less successful on YouTube, where her eponymous channel numbers just over 21,000 subscribers – the content is a combination of workout videos and vlogs, with her brother and friends.
Qimmah launched her Twitter account in August 2013, and has since tweeted over 2,800 times, while her account numbers over 32,000 followers.
Furthermore, she has also opened an OnlyFans account, where her fans can view her more explicit content for a monthly fee.
Love life and boyfriend
Qimmah is a very private person, who prefers not to talk about her love life on social media; she currently seems to be more focused on her career, rather than relationships.
