Mr. Ramon Dodson

Fitness Professional

Ramon “Doddy” Dodson is a leading wellness industry consultant, an IFBB Pro Men’s Physique athlete, a fitness model and writer. 

 In his formative years, Doddy was involved in a wide array of sporting disciplines and earned numerous awards along the way. His interest in fitness was initially piqued when he was a freshman at University - and became a member of the gym there. He developed a love for weight training and in little time, crafted a physique that afforded him the opportunity to become an internationally signed fashion and fitness model. It wasn’t long before Doddy’s aptitude for fitness and nutrition created other career opportunities for him, and after graduating from the University of the West Indies with a BSc. in Business Management, he became a personal trainer. 

His journey as a Men's Physique athlete commenced in late 2013.  His first competition was the Darcy Beckles Classic, where he placed second. Doddy followed up this inaugural showing with a string of first place efforts at a variety of regional competitions over the course of 2014. His winning streak earned him a nomination for Barbadian Male Athlete of the Year and culminated in the acquisition of his pro card at the CAC Games. As a professional athlete, Doddy’s most noticeable display was at the Arnold Classic in 2016, where he placed fourth in the Arnold Fitness Model Search.
