Back in May 2000, just 5 months after opening my first performance studio called Fitness Quest 10, I hired a young strength & conditioning coach named Brett Klika. Brett and I met at the Olympic Training facility in Chula Vista, CA, while I was working with the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team. He became my sidekick in the trenches changing lives for close to two decades and I’m so proud of all he has accomplished since the start.
Today we have some fun reminiscing about the old days and talking about how Brett is now creating massive IMPACT living in alignment with his true purpose. This includes sharing his knowledge and practical experience with his “Power of Play” message to fitness educators, coaches, and corporate executives around the world.
In today’s episode, we talk about:
– Fondest memories working together at Fitness Quest 10
– Funniest moments working together, including how Brett once stole my car
– Great things Brett is doing to create IMPACT
– Best advice Todd gave Brett on growth
