Here at Robb Vices, we are fans of whiskey, wine, gin, rum, and chocolate. Pass the salt, the steak and the bourbon, pretty please.
We will also face-plant in a bag of these at some point this weekend.
But it might surprise you to know we have another vice.
The Vice of Fitness. We relish how good working off all those calories makes us feel.
Oscar Wilde once wrote, “Everything in moderation, including moderation.”
He also wrote this:
In this edition of The Journal, we wanted to re-introduce you to our favorite man in fitness (and someone who’s a personification of Oscar Wildes’ philosophies of both moderation in all things and cultivating a terrific sense of humor) — Mr. Dolvett Quince.
If you don’t know already, he’s a personal trainer, style icon and celebrity name in fitness, who’s been a both a trainer on The Biggest Loser and is the New York Times best-selling author of The 3-1-2-1 Diet: Eat and Cheat Your Way to Weight Loss–up to 10 Pounds in 21 Days.
From his admission of loving tequila and pasta to his five-gigawatt smile and super-shredded abs, he’s playing as hard as he works.
We also really dig his sense of style that matches those muscles.
Dolvett partnered with us for our January 2017 box, so we called him up again to get real with us on how to balance our lives, in revelry and in reverse lunges.
Plus … and this is no lie … Dolvett Quince is such a badass, he did this entire interview while running on a treadmill.
Full disclosure, we did it while drinking a Gin & Tonic.
We are all winners.
What’s the one luxury item you haven’t purchased yet but are coveting?
I will purchase an Aston Martin one day, but I haven’t done the research yet on the model I want. I flatter myself to be the black James Bond. And, if he has one … I want one. Well … that and a Richard Mille watch.
If I handed you $999 right now, what would you do with it?
I’d invest it and triple it.
When you take a cheat day, what’s your go-to food and drink splurge?
Tequila or a bottle of wine. For food, it’s pasta. I love Spaghetti & Meatballs.
We actually had heard you are a big fan of tequila. Any brands you love in particular?
The blanco by Casa Amigos is great. But, I’m an even bigger fan of Casa Dragones. I love that stuff. I have a bottle on my bar, but it’s empty at the moment. I need to replenish.
Where do you live currently?
I live in Brentwood, in Los Angeles.
Describe that city in 4 words.
Always an immediate opportunity.
What’s the next Los Angeles “opportunity” for you?
I’ll be opening up boxing gym locations very soon here!
After we come for boxing classes, where should we take someone out a third date in your city?
If it’s a third date, that means it’s going well. I’d take someone to Nobu. The restaurant is right on the water. You can relax and eat fish right by the ocean and watch the sunset.
Finally, (pause to refill the G&T) … are there any fitness trends you hate and think are stupid?
Juice cleanses are usually bullshit. I say this because they are a quick fix. You get more nutrients from chewing your food than you do from drinking it. You deprive yourself, and it shocks your body too much. The results only last for a short period of time. Don’t buy into juicing and don’t get me started on gluten-free right now. If you aren’t celiac, you can certainly have gluten.
Thanks! We will!
