This man and smile needs no introduction, but we’ll go ahead and give him one because we love to dote on him. Dolvett Quince is the real deal, yo. The newest trainer on The Biggest Loser, he’s committed, talented and gets amazing results. (Plus, have you seen that smile?) On May 12, Dolvett will be hosting the 19th-annual Self Workout in the Park (oh, how we love that event!), so we had the chance to talk to him about that and so much more. Squeal!
Interview with Dolvett Quince
- FBG: Are you pumped to host Self magazine’s Workout in the Park event? What will your hosting duties include?
- DQ: Yes, I am very excited to host the Workout in the Park—looking forward to getting everyone in shape. My hosting duties include getting the crowd ready, working them out and leaving them with a sense of accomplishment for that day.
- FBG: What have you learned while being on The Biggest Loser ranch?
- DQ: That hard work will—and always will—equal results.
- FBG: The Biggest Loser fans aren’t always an easy bunch to please, but everyone loves you on the show—including us! What’s it like to be one of the most famous trainers in America now? What’s it like to be a sex symbol? (We and our readers agree you have the best smile, ever.)
- DQ: Thank you so much. I appreciate your support. I’m honored to have a voice in something I’ve always believed in my entire life, helping people get and stay healthy. I’m flattered that you think so.
- FBG: What’s your own workout routine like? Healthy eating plan?
- DQ: Go hard or go home. I love to include many different styles in my regimen in my week including yoga, weight training, hiking, biking, just to name a few. I eat extremely clean throughout the week, maintaining a specific caloric count. I choose one day to increase that caloric count, forcing my body to work hard. This concept is called “Shock the Body” inside and out.
- FBG: What’s your best advice for getting off those last 10 to 15 pounds? The last stubborn five?
- DQ: My best advice about the 10 to 15 pounds is to increase your water intake, try different styles of working out and make necessary calorie adjustments. I’m a huge fan of supplements, preferably organic. Dr. Oz and I both agree on the benefits of chickweed tea.
- FBG: What gets you motivated to work out? And how do you keep that determination up?
- DQ: My number one motivation is music. If it’s hip-hop, I won’t stop. Hard work and determination are a driving force in my life.
- FBG: How do you balance healthy eating habits and enjoying the pleasures of life—like a beer there or a happy-hour appetizer there?
- DQ: One should always have balance in his or her life. Any extreme is unhealthy whether it’s eating too much or denying yourself celebration of life. The key to health is balance, so indulge once in a while.
- FBG: And we’re dying to know, boxers or briefs?
- DQ: Both—boxer briefs.
- FBG: What’s next for you?
- DQ: I’m working on a book and a 20-city tour.
- FBG: Anything else you’d like to add?
- DQ: I’m honored to have been chosen to be a part of Self Workout in the Park. If my research is correct, I’m the first male to ever host this event, and I’m still smiling.
