Doreen Rainey loves to shake things up!

A dynamic, seasoned and no-nonsense personal and business coach and speaker, Doreen’s work of inspiring, educating and motivating others provides her clients a RADICAL approach to move beyond the ordinary and expected into the extraordinary.

With a calling to show people how to define success for themselves and get the guts to go after it, she focuses on sharing practical, implementable strategies, tools and processes to get you the results you want.

As Founder and CEO of the RADICAL Success Institute and the Vice President, Operations, Act Like A Success | A Steve Harvey Company, she is driven by a singular vision: to help people define success for themselves and have the guts to go after it. Through her work with Act Like A Success, live online courses, private coaching and mentoring and transformational live events, she teaches practical, implementable strategies.

A life-long learner, Doreen constantly engages in continuing education courses and programs to stay on top of the latest research, trends and information on success. She frequently interviews and talks with experts, thought leaders and industry insiders in a variety of fields to glean relevant, timely and practical insights to share with her clients and her community.

Doreen received her B.A. from Spelman College, an M.S. in Conflict Negotiation and Conflict Management from the University of Baltimore and her coaching certificate from The Coaches Training Institute.

  • Supporting each other means bringing out each others greatness and living in a judgement free zone.

Linda Mitchell

Linda Mitchell is more than qualified to help women reach a point of empowerment . As an Institute of Integrative Nutrition graduate, an award-winning fitness competitor, and elite obstacle racer. she collaborated on the fitness portion of the book “Fat Flush for Life” with mentor and New York Times Best Selling author Ann Louise Gittleman. This book was listed in Time magazine as one of the top ten diet books for 2009. As a former columnist for 12 years for Ms. Fitness magazine, Linda decided to put everything into a book and it really evolved and became “The Sisterhood of S.W.E.A.T.”.  Her book and the studio are all about helping women build confidence and self-esteem and learning to feel 100% great about themselves.    

Mitchell launched The Chickfit Studio in 2013. She says “At Chickfit, our priority is building women’s self-confidence. Our belief is that their newfound self-love will transfer into giving support and love to one another. Self-improvement equals empowerment.”

Mitchell was inspired to open The Chickfit Studio after she found that deep down in her heart she wanted to do something that was worthwhile and made real, lasting changes in people’s lives. She opened The Chickfit Studio after working as a group fitness director and personal trainer for about 25 years.
