Facebook Live Call: Open Q & A with TD

I was on a Facebook Live Open Q&A recently and I wanted to share some of the highlights.

From leadership to fitness, I’m dedicating my time to YOU. So, hit me up on social media with your questions and tune in for the answers. It’s that simple.

In the video below, we go deep on my favorite podcasts, good and bad carbs, and my predictions for the future of fitness. In a hurry? Check out the show notes beneath the video for the sweet spots.

Show Notes / Sweet Spots

[1:05] I get this one all the time, and these are my BIG five podcasts right now:

[8:45] Curious about carbs? Here are the good carbs you should be fueling your body with:

  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Salads
  • Vegetables

And these are “killer” carbs. Avoid these bad boys:

  • Pasta
  • Bread
  • Alcohol

[26:30] I love being asked about the future of fitness. Here are my predictions for the fitness industry over the next 5 – 10 years:

  • A new focus on recovery. While CrossFit, SoulCycle, and HIIT are huge right now, I believe recovery will become an emphasis of the industry. Whether it’s facilities adding recovery options like infrared saunas (a recent addition here at Fitness Quest 10) or boxes adding yoga and meditation classes, I’m confident the industry will start focusing on this often-overlooked piece of the puzzle.
  • Mindset. Man, you guys hear me talking about “get your mind right” all the time, and I’m sure industry leaders will start focusing more on mindset and less on only the physical aspect of health and fitness. Less stinking thinking, more self-talk.
  • Technology. Duh. The options are endless. From fitness on your phone to streaming classes, technology will continue to evolve our industry. TD TV, for example…

How can I help YOU?

  1. Todd !!!! You are my guy! Thank you for YOU! Telluride anything in Colorado I will come here you speak. I love and learn from your pearls of wisdom! Much Respect to YOU sir!

  2. I heard you talk about your knee. I have the same problem, same knee and I get a cortisone shot, what do you do for the knee? I am now 60, still teaching classes, but I too have had to change my mind set on what I can/cannot do. Like I can’t run, jump anymore, but even in training I do the low impact option. But what do you actually do Todd? Have you heard about PRP? We have that down here, but it is expensive and not covered by our medical coverage, so it is something I would like to do, but can’t afford right now. So please let me know what you are doing for the knee, as I see you doing high impact activities still?

  3. Thnx for the email. Nice to hear u talk about the spiritual side of life, along with the physical. Loved the first Impact book. For Impact 2, can you have special 4-8 week programs that are kettle bell only workouts, workouts that use the land mine equipment for upper and lower body, home based workouts that use limited amount of equipment such as barbells and dumbbells (power block) and then cardio workouts 1-2 times a week using row machines, verse climber, treadmills and elliptical and jump rope? Also, who are the personal trainers and bodybuilders (past and present) that have had the most impact on you? What books and fitness magazines are you recommending for serious fitness people. Can you include active recovery programs in Impact 2?
