Dolvett Quince — coach for the iVillage Lose Big Community Challenge — is a fitness expert and television star who is quickly becoming one of America’s favorite trainers.
After completing his third season on the hit NBC show The Biggest Loser, Dolvett 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, Dolvett and his three siblings were adopted by a Jamaican couple and later moved to Florida, where he finished high school. Dolvett ultimately moved to Atlanta to pursue his passion for fitness and establish himself as a leader in his field of health and fitness.
In 2004, Dolvett 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 Dolvett and his business really took off. He then widened his business to training other trainers, which then led to him training celebrities like actors Angela Bassett, Boris Kodjoe and Nicole Ari Parker, Baltimore Ravens tight-end Daniel Wilcox and singer-songwriter Jojo, among others. In 2010, Dolvett also worked as Justin Bieber’s personal trainer during his My World 2.0 Tour.
Within the studio, Dolvett created Pure Energy, a high-intensity circuit-training class with a live DJ which was voted “Best Workout in the Southeast.” 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, Hollywood began to take notice of Dolvett, and he was cast on The Biggest Loser. His connection with the audience garnered the attention of Mark Burnett, who cast him in the NBC series Stars Earn Stripes, in which celebrities were paired with members of the military and law enforcement to compete in various challenges for their favorite charities. Dolvett has also guest-starred on the hit BET series The Real Husbands of Hollywood.
Dolvett is very passionate about giving back and helping others. He is an active supporter of non-profit organizations such as CHOA – Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, the American Heart Association and Got Your 6, which helps veterans transition into civilian life. Dolvett currently lives in Los Angeles and enjoys time with his son, Isiah.
Dolvett's first book, The 3-1-2-1 Diet: Eat and Cheat Your Way to Weight Loss—Up to 10 Pounds in 21 Days is now on sale.
