On August 1, 2013 I started a fitness class called Boxing Boot Camp run by Dexter. When I began this class I weighed 235 lbs., had type 2 diabetes controlled only by medicine and I had not exercised in over twenty years. Dexter took his time to bring me along at a pace that I would not quit but still made steady progress. When I began class I could only do a mile run by running for 30 seconds, then walking for 30 seconds, on Thanksgiving Day 2013 I ran 3 miles. With Dexter’s fitness and meal plans I have lost over 35 lbs., gained muscle tone, and control my type 2 diabetes solely with diet and exercise. At the age of 49 I look and feel better than I did in my in my thirties. I only wish I had known and trained with Dexter 15 years ago.
