Dorian Loses 100 Pounds and Gains More Than Muscle

Meet Dorian. Most Y Kids know Dorian as their beloved Group Leader in Before and After School Care at Ball Chatham. What they may not remember is that Dorian wasn’t always as agile and fit as he is today!

Since working at the YMCA, Dorian has dropped an astounding 100 lbs. Two years ago he weighed in at 285lbs. He lost the weight and dropped down to 169lbs! After this initial weight loss, he knew he wanted to fill out his physique and put on some muscle. Today, Dorian sits at 185lbs of lean body mass.

He says he loves to take fitness classes and makes sure to get his weight lifting in. On Monday, Wednesday, and Friday he focuses on abs and upper body. On Tuesdays and Thursdays he does lower body. Every day he fits in cardio.

His favorite time to work out is 5:30 in the morning! His good friend Jamal often picks him up at 4:30AM. They get coffee, lift, play basketball and enjoy the steam room. He credits Jamal with getting him into fitness and offering support.

Dorian has completely changed his lifestyle and his body. He sets a positive, healthy example for our Y kids and is a result of the Y mission. He has built a healthy spirit, mind, and body.
