Raised in the small town of Hohenwald located in Middle
Tennessee, Dexter Tenison grew up with the same fitness
struggles so many Americans face today. With little
knowledge of healthy eating and exercise, he struggled
with a vicious weight problem throughout childhood
and young adulthood. Until he was able to arm himself with proper fitness
knowledge and proven healthy-eating techniques, he was unable to beat the
unsuccessful yo-yo cycle of pop culture quick-fixes. Once Dexter learned
that the keys to long term health and fitness do exist easily within anybody’s
reach, he couldn’t help but share it with the world. It is his passion to help
people find their desired destination of becoming more fit and healthy. His
aim is to unlock the secrets of health and fitness not just for the people who
look good with their shirts off, but for those who never believed it possible.
His time tested programs boast 100% success when implemented!
As someone who constantly strives to grow and learn, he sought out his
fitness trainer certification with the International Sports Science Association
and began working at a gym. He discovered many unethical flaws in the
fitness industry that worked against the clients instead of for them. Seeking
to find a program that set the highest ethical and educational standards in
the industry, Tenison discovered Phil Kaplan’s Be Better project. “It’s one of
the best things I’ve ever done for my business and my clients,” says Tenison.
Living by the rule “Be Better,” Tenison practices what he preaches. “The goal
is not to be perfect it’s just consistent improvement. Be better.” With this
goal Tenison finished his Master’s degree in Sports Science graduating with
highest honors from the United States Sports Academy. He opened Dexter
Tenison Fitness, Inc. and owns Memphis Adventure Boot Camp for Memphians
to get outstanding results.
Through his knowledge, personal trial-and-error and deep-rooted passion
to help others, Tenison has developed systems with an unequaled 100%
success rate when they are applied! “Every one of my clients achieves noticeable
results,” smiles Tenison. Working with many people who are not
comfortable going to a gym where others might judge them or are unsure
of their own abilities, he has helped transform his clients into the people
they want to be. Humble about his success, Tenison takes joy in seeing his
clients’ triumph. He has helped people reduce medications, reverse diabetes
and overcome cancer, as well as lose weight and gain strength. “People tell
me I have changed their lives and I’m in awe of that,” says Tenison.
