Dale Townsend is a overcomer. He has recovered from a hopeless state of mind and body, pertaining to alcoholism and transformed his lifestyle into being a physically fit specimen. He started his own fitness company, Destine To Make It Fitness World and business in 2014 after being sober for about two and half years and desiring to quit smoking cigarettes. I stopped smoking by the grace of God and started working out. My weight went from 150 pounds to 180 pound. That experience ignited a fire within Townsend and began to help others achieve their fitness goals.

I have a holistic approach and desire to provide exceptional services to all my clients offering the following services: one on one coaching, consultations, and personalized fitness training plans. I believe “exercise is therapeutic” and helps the mind to function better he says. While working in the mental health he is able to grasp a better understanding of the symptoms that are associated with depression disorders, attributing to weight loss or weight gain.

Townsend has always lived a life that involved sports and exercise. This included playing sports such as basketball, boxing and baseball. He has also competed against and trained with professional athletes from a diversity of sports. He also had opportunities to work out with the following pro athletes; Ray Allen, Richard Seymour, Xavier McDaniel, Alex English and countless others.

Having to overcome different obstacles is where Townsend also found himself and strength. He has dealt with self-esteem issues, battled depression and questioned his self-worth. Even while he battled substance abuse he knew that no matter what challenges he was facing, he was “Destine to Make it”. When he moved to Charlotte in 2012, he was homeless. “If you would had told me that four years later I would have my own business with t-shirts and hats, I wouldn’t have believe you. It was only God that helped me to find purpose,” he says.

In the future, Townsend hopes to start a fitness movement that includes outdoor fitness. He also hopes to coach other trainers and take his brand of physical fitness around to other markets. He advises others who may face similar challenges that he did to not get discouraged. “Remain consistent because I believe that passion is wealth, and passion leads to wealth but you must be willing to sacrifice some things in order to fulfill your dreams,” he says.
