Meet Dionte Brooks of 4thQuarterDB in Compton

Today we’d like to introduce you to Dionte Brooks.

Dionte, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I’m from Compton, CA. My story starts from having a mother who was diagnosed with Lupus and was very sick when I was a child and growing up. Growing up for me in a gang-related environment, I made a lot of tough decisions, but I always knew I had to be there for my mom and she was always my backbone to keep my grounded and humble because of her situation.

I played football and it led me to receiving college scholarship which was something I never imagined for me. I was never the star player on my teams but I knew how to work hard and I was smart with great awareness.

In college had strength coach who took liking to my work ethic and began working with me and letting me watch him train the other athletes we had at school. From there on training had become a big passion for me and something that would lead me to the career path I’ve chosen.

Working through different avenues of coaching and fitness led me to great gym and around great people. In that gym with the help of others, I was able to develop myself into the trainer/ sports performance coach I am today. Call myself and training style 4thQuarterDB, which simply means just to give it all you got until that clock hits zero. You can be fast, slow, strong or weak, but knowing how to finish something while giving it everything is a mindset. And that is what 4thQuarterDB is…

Has it been a smooth road?
My biggest obstacle was getting out of my own head and setting myself back.
