About me

Simon Chilembo, CEO/ President

Simon Chilembo, President/ Author


My name is Simon Chilembo, Man of the World, Lover of Life, Free Spirit, Warrior of the good: Adherent of Democracy, fairness and justice. Critical thinker – Humanities & Social Sciences; Writer.


I am a Health & Wellness Entrepreneurial Warrior. My specializations are Therapeutic Massage Therapy, Reflexology, and Fitness Training.

I teach Karate. Until June 2012 I ran two Karate clubs of my own in Oslo and Nesodden. Now I am a Rōnin, with my own independent and eponymous Karate development society, Chilembo Warrior Moves Karate Development. From my more than 40 years of Martial Arts training and teaching experience I have developed a fitness training concept called ChiTopLevelFitness®. The core elements here are endurance, strength, rhythm , balance, and power.

As certified NLP Master Practitioner I have expert knowledge in Life/ Executive Coaching, empowering people to manage more effectively transformations in their private and professional lives. Through my COOL Coaching® I can help you awaken the genius, the SuperStarInYou®, for success and happiness in life.


Purchase my novels and books on Amazon/ Kindle e-Books:

2. MACHONA – Emigrant
3. MACHONA AWAKENING – home in grey matter
4. MACHONA SON – ain’t going nowhere

I was born in Thabong Location, Welkom, South Africa; and went to several different schools in Lesotho, South Africa, up to university in Zambia and, later, Norway. This, combined with the fact that the city of my birth, Welkom, is a melting pot, given its one time vibrant gold mining industry attracting people from all over the country, Africa, and many other parts of the world have, I believe, strongly contributed to making me the kind of dynamic and easily adaptable man I am.

My strength, my will to survive, my ethical and moral values, as well  as standards have greatly been influenced and conditioned by my parents. I often brag about being a self-made man; but, nay, the foundation was laid by my parents. These two wonderful people came from the most humble living circumstances on either side. How they managed to build themselves from absolute nothing to become very decent human beings and the world’s most terrific parents will always be a great source of inspiration for me.

The spirit of my parents is always with me, both in times of joy or hours of troubles. It is my mother who very early inculcated in us the entrepreneurial spirit my two siblings and I have. My father on the other hand always emphasized and displayed honesty, fairness, justice, patience, tolerance, endurance, inclusiveness, and generosity. From my childhood days I recall with awe the extreme all-embracing, accommodative, and philanthropic nature of my parents towards the less resourceful and less fortunate around us where ever we were, no matter how little we had.  And in my family, we’ve always loved a party. 😉

“I am the master of my fate; I am the captain of my soul.”

Although I choose not to be vocal, overly visible, or controversial in the open public domain, I do think a lot and critically about, and I do have strong opinions on, things. On the ‘Home’ page I write occasional blogs on various subjects of interest and concern to me. I’m solely responsible for the contents of my blogs; writing freely to please my own creative urges first and foremost, and living the meaning of my surname, Chilembo, which in my Zambian Tumbuka tribe means The Written Word, as well. I will happily engage in constructive dialogues with anybody who may wish to communicate with me directly concerning my writings.

If you feel or think I can help you in any way with one or more of the things I do above, do not hesitate to get in touch. I help many, many people from all walks of life, with different conditions and needs.
