Wayne (Weezy) DuBois is a living breathing example that it is possible.
Growing up in gang culture, overwhelmed with drugs, death and destruction inevitably lead Mr. DuBois to a 20 year sentence for Assault in the 1st Degree.
To prepare for altercations associated with prison. Mr.DuBois began his fitness journey. Through exercise he found structure, discipline, work ethic and relief.
After shedding the first 40 pounds it wasn’t until his uncle, who also at this time was his cellmate told him “if you do anything like you workout, you will be successful at everything” that he found himself. This began his journey of education.
Since then Mr.DuBois has deeply rooted himself within his community and is passionate about effectively empowering youth and young adults from these same neighborhoods where he once caused so much destruction.
Mr.DuBois is a certified transformation specialist, Strength and Conditioning coach and Nutritionist.
He is the creator and facilitator of the oppression and trauma recovery course, Conversations Of Growth (C.O.G.) and is also a motivational speaker.
