Alina Kravchenko Founder Of Tonerbum Shares Her Success
Ever since she was a little girl, Alina Kravchenko dreamed of being an inventor. Determined to gain the skills she needed to succeed, Alina earned an honours degree in Advertising and Branding from Pratt Institute of New York, followed by a Computer Science Degree from The Art Institute of San Francisco.
Even when life threw her road bumps, such as having to raise her son entirely on her own, she took on the challenge and chose to see it as a blessing and a chance to understand what it was like to be a busy working parent. The years Alina spent raising her son inspired her to
invent a time-saving tool that helps busy parents apply diaper cream to their babies. Even with little resources, she persevered to bring SwipenSnap™ to life by writing her patent and appearing on the famous Shark Tank television show. And she is just getting started!
Like most people, Alina’s job requires sitting in front of a computer for long periods. As a fitness enthusiast and certified yoga instructor passionate about staying fit while aging gracefully, she realized her work could lead to weakened glutes and back pain. It could even cause hip injuries as she aged but finding time and energy to go to the gym for a full one-hour workout was unrealistic.
And thus, the TonerBum™! The TonerBum is the world’s first and only US Utility Patented Glute Trainer Dumbbell + Kettlebell. TonerBum’s ergonomic design targets critical muscles to give you a full glute workout in just five minutes a day – Giving women the power to look and feel healthier and more confident.
Doing cardio is an excellent way to get moving, get in shape and improve your overall health — but if you want to focus on toning up specific areas, weight training can be a huge help.
The TonerBum™ is designed specifically for the glutes. Its curved shape, with a width of just under six inches, fits perfectly on the inside of your knee and adds the ideal amount of extra resistance during leg and butt toning exercises! TonerBum is a solid alternative for unwieldy resistance bands and is easy to use, no matter your fitness level or goals.
The reviews of this product are even better!
One buyer says, “I was surprised at how much just five a min workout with a 5lb weight can burn, like in a whoa this is really working kind of way! I have to admit I was skeptical at first, but now that I have been using it for a couple of weeks, I can finally say this product really works, I can see and feel my glutes getting firmer. I strongly recommend it for anyone who is too busy to go to the gym and too drained to do a full at-home workout, even the 5 or 10 min workout daily has had incredible results for me! This is why I felt like I absolutely had to share how much I love this product! It is so much better than just sitting and doing nothing.”
What challenges you’ve been through:
Maybe the question should be is “what challenges haven’t I gone through”. My mom raised me and my sister alone, she brought us to America from Ukraine. I did not speak any English nor knew the social norms or the system of American life. Being kind and naive put me in a vulnerable situation of being taken advantage of by my poor choices in a boyfriend. I ended up facing my greatest fear at age 23 of having to raise my son completely on my own without any help from his dad. With the economy crashing in 2008 and no jobs available, I was at the lowest point of my life. And it was in that place that I made a mindful choice to be the hero of my life no matter what obstacles or challenges I faced.
How you overcame challenges:
It was there at my lowest moment that I choose to begin a path that would put me on the Shark Tank stage ten years later. I made a conscious decision to focus on the positive aspects of my challenges instead of complaining about the challenges in my life, I choose to see them as opportunities to grow. And I do not see problems as “problems”, but as opportunities to create innovative solutions.
