Dekel Nesbitt is the lead instructor and owner of Bowflex Barbie Fitness. Dekel grew up with an active and healthy family but got into fitness shortly after losing her mom to breast cancer when she was 14 years old. She joined her brother and dad in the gym and never looked back. Dekel's love for fitness was evident and she noticed people gravitating towards her to help them on their own journeys and in 2012 her dad encouraged her to host a summer boot camp when she visited her home, Grand Bahama while on summer break from university. This led to the development and official launch of the Bowflex Barbie Fitness brand in 2014. Dekel is passionate about empowering women to discover their true strength and unlock their bodies potential. Dekel is an ISSA Certified Personal Trainer, NESTA Certified Sports Injury Specialist,Physique and Figure Training Specialist and a Pre & Post Natal Corrective Exercise Specialist.

One day, while visiting a friend’s house, she stepped onto the bathroom scale only find herself shocked and dismayed at the figure that looked up at her. She found herself unhappy and uncomfortable in her own skin and was determined to do something about it. She began by training in a small gym in her building using a simple workout regime provided by a friend. From here, she began to conduct research on the body and workout routines, and credits YouTube university as truly igniting a spark. She dove headfirst into the world of health and fitness and, in doing so, realised that nutrition plays a key role in fuelling workouts and changing the body for the better.
