Fitness Quest 10

Fitness Quest 10


Regardless of your age, the perpetual pursuit of excellence, growth, and learning never stops and plays a huge role in success.

In this week’s podcast episode 241, I sit down with two of our interns at Fitness Quest 10, Chad Wilkins and Jennifer Tidball, as they ask me a ton of great questions relating to many topics, including:

▪️ Opening a business and my top mistakes made.
▪️ How you grow a brand (then & now) and create impact.
▪️ How I got my first pro athletes. You will never believe how a broken massage table led to my first pro athletes.
▪️ My thoughts on certifications and if they’re important to one’s success.
▪️ Tips, wisdom, and suggestions on what to do post-university when it comes to “finding” your purpose.
▪️ My top tips to build and grow a successful business today.

I love giving back to other hungry entrepreneurs desiring success and yearning to create IMPACT. I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I enjoyed recording it.

Remember, never stop learning and always create IMPACT!

🎂🥳 Why is it you always have an extra-bounce in your step on your birthday?

Don’t you wish you could have that SAME bounce every single day?

Today I’m celebrating 51-years around the sun. Crazy.

There are days when I feel 20-years younger.
And there are some days I feel 20-years older & wiser.
Can anyone else relate?!

Either way, I’ll bang out 51-pushups today and celebrate with a good “peanut butter protein shake” to cap it off (I love peanut butter protein shakes!).

And I’m going to enjoy a great football game tonight up here in San Jose as my San Diego Strike Force take on the Bay Area Panthers at the “Shark Tank”.

Speaking of which whether you're 21 , 51, or 71 one thing I’ve learned is that the more I know the more I realize I still have to learn.

Regardless of your age, I believe that the perpetual pursuit of excellence, growth, and learning never stops. It plays a huge role in success.

As a matter of fact, I sat down with two “young” interns from Fitness Quest 10 for this week’s podcast episode 241 and allowed them to fire-away any questions they wanted.

I thoroughly enjoyed the interview and I’m sharing it with you today hoping that my “many years” of experience can positively impact you as well.

Anyone facing any challenges out there these days?

Whether it’s health, mindset, career, finances, or even parenting, these struggles can take a toll on you.

In my continuing series on “Unbreakable,” I’ve been spotlighting some everyday people who I find tremendously resilient and inspiring.

This week’s guest is someone I’ve known and worked with for 20-years. Her name is Janet Bertrand.

Janet Bertrand started out as an intern at Fitness Quest 10 and then became a personal trainer and coach and she’s been an important part of our FQ10 team ever since. She’s changed thousands of lives in her career, all while many times dealing with a lot of adversity “off the field.”

In episode 240, Janet and I have a deep conversation about training, parenting, and life. She shares the daily mindset necessary when facing tough times, the one thing she always does to deal with the stress, pressure, and depression that can creep up, and how and why she maintains faith in all that she does.

When I asked her what advice she would give about how to remain strong when you feel like you’re broken, she said this:

“Absolutely surrounding yourself with help. Asking for help.”

Whether that looks like a therapist, a counselor, a support group, your pastor, your partner, your friends… You’ve gotta ask for help.

My friends, this installment of the Unbreakable series is a MUST LISTEN. Especially if you are facing any challenges right now.

Listen wherever you get your podcasts or by clicking HERE:
How strong are you?

I’m not talking about your Deadlift. Or your Squat. Or your Bench Press.

I am talking about your MINDSET.

One of my favorite quotes is “You don’t know how STRONG you are…until STRONG is all you have left.”

Today’s podcast guest is someone who epitomizes being STRONG.

Her name is Janet “Btrain” Bertrand and she’s been a trainer & coach at Fitness Quest 10 for almost 20-years. She’s changed thousands of lives in her career and she’s about to change yours…in this podcast.

On today’s IMPACT episode 240, Janet and I have a deep conversation about training, parenting, and life. She also shares her most recent challenging journey she’s had with her daughter Lauren, who has been suffering from substance abuse for more than 10 years.

Janet shares the daily mindset necessary when facing tough times, the one thing she always does to deal with the stress, pressure, and depression that can creep up, and how and why she maintains faith in all that she does. Janet also shares why she always keeps “Showing Up!"

This is a must-listen to episode (especially if you are a parent) as it’s going to strike a chord with you. The strength that Janet has of mind, body and spirit is why I describe her as “unbreakable” and why I’m pumped for you to hear her story. Amazing.

Create an incredible week. And if you are facing ANY kind of trouble, challenge, or adversity, remember to STAY STRONG and DO NOT BREAK. You can bend, but let’s not break.

Hunters of Hendrix is holding its Grand Opening "Lunges for Lattes" event on Saturday, Feb. 12 at 9am! Trainers from Fitness Quest 10 will lead participants through a fun, full body workout at the Hunters of Hendrix parking lot at 10045 Carroll Canyon Road, Suite C. Lattes and donuts will be available following the workout. This event is open to all fitness levels, all ages.
My friends, there’s a lot of invisible illness going on between the ears and people are living in their own world these days.

As a leader, I think you gotta find empathy. How can you win the caring game? How do you truly care about your people more? What is the best way to CONNECT?

I think it’s slowing down enough to actually watch and listen with your ears and your eyes as well.

Being a leader can sometimes really beat you down and tire you because you feel like you’re always serving other people, there’s a lot of pain in people right now. And I find that if you can try to listen with your eyes and see what’s going on and open up dialog and connect about personal stuff it helps all levels including back to the professional responsibilities that one may have within their organization.

This week’s IMPACT SHOW, episode 232, is all about LEADERSHIP and ENERGY with a very special guest…
Natalie Peterson is not only a leadership and stamina coach with 15 years of experience in organizational development who runs The Empowered Working Moms Network, but she is also a former employee of Fitness Quest 10 & Todd Durkin Enterprises for many years.

So be ready for some great stories, many funny and some not so funny!

If you find value in today’s podcast, please share it on your social media or send the link to your friends, family, colleagues, and co-workers who are looking for great content on leadership, teamwork, and high performance.

You have heard it before, but I’ll say it again, “The bigger your dream, the more important your team.”

As my TDE brand (Coaching, Speaking, & Podcasting) has grown along with Fitness Quest 10, my team at TDE has grown immensely as well. We currently have 9 teammates helping change the world through our crusade to “Change lives, create IMPACT, and inspire the world to greatness.”

Today, you get to meet 7 of those teammates at Todd Durkin Enterprises (TDE). These are the people behind-the-scenes who help me get stuff done, execute strategy, and ultimately create global IMPACT.

The responsibilities range from high-level strategy development, ex*****on of live events, coaching, social media, videography, back-end technology, and everything that makes us tick…so we can fulfill our mission to change lives and create impact.

On today’s IMPACT Show, you’re going to hear from several of the people who make magic happen on a regular basis. This includes them sharing their specific roles, what they like best about their jobs, the hardest part about their jobs, and what they’re MOST excited about for 2022. It may even include a few of them sharing some dirt or funny stories about Todd.

Tune into today’s special “Team episode” as it is a compilation of some of the many special people whom I get to do great work with on a daily basis. Additionally, I share what I’m MOST excited for in 2022 and why I’m particularly fired-up here in Q1.

It takes a village to get a lot of stuff done…and I’m extremely grateful for the teams at both Todd Durkin Enterprises and Fitness Quest 10. They truly are rockstars and help create a lot of IMPACT.

"Victory is always possible for the person who refuses to stop fighting." - Napoleon Hill

For all of my life, I have lived my life as a struggler. I can understand how all of you are feeling while living through COVID-19.

This award meant a lot to us. As it is a dream conceived in 2012, when Jason Nah and I visited Fitness Quest 10 ,the top gym in America. After the tour and personal sharing from Todd Durkin, he had since inspired me in setting up a personal training studio.

The journey of setting up RAW personal training studio is really freaking hard. A lot of my friends who know me as a person with a high tolerance level. There is a lot of unknowns that I didn't exposed to. There are times that this journey also broke me. There are days where I only have 2 to 3 hours of sleep while multitasking on setting up website, sending EDM to company, distributing flyers, going for business networking, conducting workshop and training clients. There are days I stay over at the studio to get stuff done. People may call me crazy but I do see the dream come closer and closer 0.00001% at a time.

There are times where I need to fork out my saving to pay up the rent. There are times that I need to fast due to low income. These are the parts I chose not to show on social media. However, this is the right time to share with you all. Because I just wanted to share a point: DON'T FU***NG GIVE UP. Your dream will come true.

Don't give up. Even if you see that big wall stopping you from moving forward, use what else tools and effort to break that wall down. Even if you are exhausted to move forward, crawl forward if you need to. Move forward one step at a step and please don't stop. Your dream is right there waiting for you.

If you lose, try again. If you lose again, try again. Each time you lose, you earn a lesson, a lesson that you will remember. I am an expert in losing and this is why I learned a lot of lessons and hopefully a little wiser.

In ending, I hoped you would take a few minutes reading through as it is not easy for anyone to share their personal journey or struggle. Likewise, if your friends or family members wanted to share with their personal journey or struggles. Stop whatever you are doing now. Look at the person who is sharing with you. Listen.

Thank you. *bang* and Good night! Fitness Quest 10 was built upon the dream to create a special place to Fitness Quest 10 was built upon the dream to create a special place to empower people to be the best they can be.

In a world that is often over-stressed and out of balance, the goal of Fitness Quest 10 is to transform the way we think about health, fitness, and success in life. If you want to be great in life, you must have 3 things—
