Our Hearts’ Desire… Are You Being Called to Greater Things?

This one is deep. And it truly comes full circle. It is with a former client whom I’ve trained for years when he was playing college & pro baseball. But in the span of 30-days, Bob Wheatley lost his dream, career, and even girlfriend. As life spiraled downward and he contemplated his true purpose, he went deeper on his faith…

NJ, Fist Pumps, Travel, and Meet a WNBA Superstar!

I just got home from the Motherland. New Jersey! Ahh, it always feels great to go “home” and spend time in a state where I spent some of the most formative years of my life. While I didn’t get down to the Jersey Shore (fist pumps, please!), I definitely felt the “Jersey love.” I was in NJ to kick off…

Get to Know the Durkin Boys Better

Welcome into the “family room” today as the Durkin boys (Luke, Brady, and me) sit around after a recent workout at FQ10 and chop it up on all things LIFE–from school/college, sports, family, adversity, interests, to what brings them happiness…and who’s going to run the empire someday. Haha. It has been great to have Luke home from college for the…

Why Wait? Create Your BEST Year Now!

Happy New Year! Who else is excited for 2023? So many reasons to be pumped up for the start of the New Year. As a matter of fact, I got so pumped up at the beginning of today’s show that I caused a little power outage. All good. Nothing the “dream team” couldn’t handle. ENJOY!! In today’s episode, I pose…

As we wrap up 2022, I want to take a moment today and reflect on the past 365 days and share my top lessons. There have been many ups and downs, wins and losses, unprecedented challenges, and so many lessons on many different levels.

What To Do When You Are Overwhelmed

Is anyone feeling overwhelmed these days? Too busy. Stressed out. Anxious. The holidays. Life. Or all of it. Heck, I’ve had a couple of moments in the last few weeks where I was feeling that heat also. Frustration, anxiousness, angst, and anger were all present. Ughh… I hate that feeling. Let’s face it, feeling overwhelmed is a common experience nowadays…

The Champion Life Playbook with Curt Tucker

If you are looking for a bit of inspiration today and need a great “pick me up,” I’m so excited to share a remarkable story of a new friend of mine, Curt Tucker. Curt epitomizes being an “overcomer” as he was raised by drug-abusing parents, battled 4 years of a rocky marriage (and eventually saved it), and overcame bankruptcy and some…

Is your fitness or nutrition struggling this holiday season?

We are smack in the middle of the holidays, and the upsurge of “sweets” around the house is in full effect. Can I get an “amen” on this, or is the Durkin household the only one that seems that somehow the holiday “goodies” are already arriving? I’ve been saying for weeks now that this is NOT the time to play…

Love Teaching on Goals & Dreams

Last Wednesday, I had the opportunity to teach some of my teammates at Fitness Quest 10 a “goal-setting” exercise. Part of it was on “Finishing STRONG” for 2022. The other part was sharing with them my newest, most up-to-date Annual Strategic Plan. I LOVED sharing and walking them through this “exercise” as I know what a major difference maker alone…
