Heading into his fifth season on the hit NBC show “The Biggest Loser,” Dolvett Quince is proving that his passion, regimen and dramatic transformational results are making him one of the most in-demand fitness specialists in the country.
Born in Stamford, Connecticut, Quince and his three siblings were adopted by a Jamaican couple and later moved to Florida, where he finished high school. He then moved to Atlanta to pursue his passion for fitness and established himself as a leader in his field of health and fitness.
In 2004, Quince opened Body Sculptor, a private personal training studio in Atlanta with a commitment to “changing lives one rep at a time.” His business had a solid following, but it wasn’t until a local radio personality started talking about it on his show that Quince and his business really took off.
He then widened his business to training other trainers, which then led to training celebrities like actors Angela Bassett, Boris Kodjoe and Nicole Ari Parker, Baltimore Ravens tight end Daniel Wilcox and singer-songwriter JoJo, among others.
Within the studio, he created Pure Energy, a high-intensity circuit-training class with a live DJ. The popularity of Dolvett’s fitness methods inspired the launch of his own DVD “Me and My Chair: The No Excuses Workout,” a low-impact, high-intensity 30-minute workout system that helps users tone up and slim down while only using a household chair.
Soon after, Quince was cast on “The Biggest Loser.” His connection with the audience garnered the attention of Mark Burnett, who cast him on the NBC series “Stars Earn Stripes,” which followed a group of celebrities accompanied by members of the military and law enforcement, competing in various challenges for their favorite charities. He has also guest starred on the hit BET series “The Real Husbands of Hollywood.”
Quince is also a New York Times best-selling author. His first book, “The 3-1-2-1 Diet: Eat and Cheat Your Way to Weight Loss – Up to 10 Pounds in 21 Days,” published by Grand Central Publishing, came out in November, 2013.
He currently lives in Los Angeles and enjoys time with his son, Isiah.
