Carrie Schechter is an electrifying force of nature who puts a high-spirited energy into everything she does. Her two passions in life are fitness and photography, and she’s known as Hollywood in the underground because she’s got a knack for turning out stars whether she’s on the mat or behind the camera.
Hollywood began her martial art training in So Back Do Mu Do Kwan. She’s been studying Kickboxing and MMA for the last decade while completing her ACE certification in fitness, nutrition, and wellness. Kickboxing led her to Muay Thai and Boxing, and she quickly fell in love with both. She’s been teaching fighting classes and personal training in Brooklyn for the past 11 years. She loves snapping pics of her sweat sessions, turning her students into stars – and with good reason! Since 2006, Hollywood’s worked as a fashion, celebrity and advertising photographer, gaining international acclaim for many of her magazine and album covers featuring some of the hottest artists and brands on the scene. In early 2016, Hollywood became a Reebok Brand Ambassador & Reebok One Trainer. She’s recently moved from behind the camera to the front as a fitness model, partnering with several of the freshest fitness lines. When not shooting or training you can find Hollywood throwing some 1,2’s around the city while modeling for some of the fiercest fitness companies on the market.
Living in the limelight, and having a larger than life personality – Hollywood is always ready for a fight night!
