As he gained a reputation in the ring for being a determined and fierce fighter, Tim Stout earned the nickname “MOAB”—an acronym for Massive Ordinance Air Blast, a powerful bomb. For more than 20 years, Tim has been training in martial arts, beginning with karate before delving into muay thai, boxing, and wrestling. Along the way, the ambitious athlete earned championship titles in tournaments across the country, holding the South Carolina Grappling Championship title for three years.
When he isn’t training for upcoming matches, Tim pulls lessons from his personal playbook to teach students at his own training school, MOAB Fighting Concepts. Amidst the private studio’s cushioned floors and heavy punching bags, Tim and his staff of award-winning fighters train aspiring punch-smiths in a wide variety of martial-arts techniques, from boxing to wrestling to MMA. In addition to technique-focused kickboxing classes, the trainers lead a cardio-kickboxing class specially designed to slim physiques and tone muscles. The instructors also train up tots in kids' kickboxing and jujitsu classes, where they lead youngsters through self-defense techniques such as how to wrestle an opponent to the ground or roundhouse kick a baseball for the game-winning home run.

Since her days as a high-school basketball and track star, Dr. Benita Stephens has understood the importance of maintaining a healthy diet and weight. But it wasn't until she was a trained obstetrician and gynecologist with her own practice that she saw the damaging effects excess weight has on the body. Feeling inclined to help her overweight and obese patients, Dr. Stephens sprung into action, calling upon her extensive training in bariatric medicine to establish Ciao Bella Medical Center and Spa. And it was this determination and passion for helping others that gained Dr. Stephens praise from MadameNoire and earned her the 2012 Business Superstar Award and inaugural cover from PYNTK magazine.
From within Ciao Bella's office, Dr. Stephens and her friendly staff help clients shed pounds and gain confidence through customized weight-loss programs, which can include tailored exercise plans; B12, HCG, and lipotropic injections; appetite suppressants; and meal replacements. But before programs are constructed, an initial consultation reviews patients' health history, determines their current state of health with a physical exam, and analyzes their body composition. Ciao Bella's staff also tighten and tone the skin on the face with facials, microdermabrasion, and Botox treatments.
