In addition, TD will be sharing 2 riveting keynotes and 2 "trench" talks.
This includes the following 2-keynotes...

#1. TRUE STRENGTH

Based on his newest book (debuts in June 2024) TRUE STRENGTH, Todd shares the riveting story of the past 4-years and how specifically…

  • He was burnt-out, exhausted and about died (literally) and how & why things changed…
  • 3-years of pain, confusion, & searching has re-ignited his deep passion & purpose and put a fire-inside of him that he hasn’t experience in over 24-years.
  • YOU can use your “negative” emotions to ultimately bring you from your “pain to purpose.”
  • What is TRUE STRENGTH?
  • You can use the “10” principles of “True Strength” to Become Iconic. Literally.

Let’s just say you will NEED to #BeInTheRoom to feel, experience, and absorb what’s about to go down in this epic & iconic keynote.

#2. MANIFEST YOUR DREAMS…LIVE YOUR IMPACT!

We all have dreams. We all have desires. And we all have goals. But how do we truly take our goals, dreams, and desires and put them into specific, time-driven, action-steps that will ultimately help you fulfill your dreams and destiny?

Well, get ready, because Todd is going to inspire your soul in a way that will literally propel your spirit into taking action on what you MUST do in 2024 to live out your ‘God-Sized Dreams.’

He will literally provide the roadmap and “7” ways to specifically MANIFEST YOUR DREAMS.

Additionally, Todd will also share 2 more "Talks"

Talk #3. “A Candid Interview with Todd on ALL things LIFE”

This will be a personal interview with Todd that asks him all the “personal” questions you want to know.

It will include:

  • family,
  • health,
  • mindset,
  • hacks,
  • business ventures,
  • investments,
  • and everything else you want to know…but have never heard…and will NOT hear outside of this room.

It will also include his most challenging & difficult things he currently deals with and how he handles them. #Wisdom

Talk #4. “Where do we go from here?”

In a world often filled with mediocrity, narcissim, imposter’s syndrome, or fear, this talk is going to make sure we are strong from the “inside-out” and that you can go LIVE your best life, by your design, right NOW…and everyday moving forward!

It all starts from being in the room. From being around the right people. In the right environment. With thoughts and dreams rekindled and visions inspired. That’s the first-step. But “what’s next?”

In this talk, Todd shares his 3-steps and ‘must-do’s’ that you MUST do now to GO LIVE IMPACT on a daily. This includes taking everything you learned at the IMPACT SUMMIT, including your “Pledge to Greatness,” committing to your best life, and then going to create it. That’s called IMPACT!

  • Host of the IMPACT Lighthouse Podcast
  • ACE Certified Personal Trainer
    Certified IMPACT Life Coach
  • Co-Founder of the TD IMPACT Speaker Certification
  • International Presenter
  • Best Selling Author

Travis Barnes’s journey from a decade-long incarceration for a nonviolent drug offense to becoming a best-selling author, international presenter, and the founder of Journey 333 franchise is a testament to resilience and transformation.

Despite facing immense challenges, including returning home to rebuild his life with his wife and daughter, and having to overcome the devastation of their newly purchased home by Tropical Storm Lee, Travis’s determination never wavered.

His career in the fitness industry hit a significant setback when he was unexpectedly let go from his COO position during a crucial home rebuilding phase and the Christmas season. Nevertheless, Travis and his wife turned adversity into opportunity. Embarking on a six-month stint as traveling trainers, even while living off unemployment benefits in a FEMA trailer, they laid the foundation for what would evolve into a successful fitness franchise across six states.

In a recent pivot, driven by a deep-seated call to IMPACT more lives, Travis and Cyndy have rebranded their franchise to join forces with Todd Durkin’s IMPACT-X Performance, marking the beginning of a new chapter in their mission to inspire and transform lives through fitness.

Cyndy Barnes

  • Co-Founder and CCO of IMPACT-X Performance
  • ACE Certified Personal Trainer
  • Industry Presenter
  • Best Selling Author

Cyndy Barnes, the visionary founder of Journey 333 and an ACE-certified personal trainer, has made significant contributions to the fitness world.

She has co-authored the inspiring book “Journey Fitness,” featuring a forward by Todd Durkin, and the Best Selling “52 Amazing Journeys,” showcasing her depth of knowledge and passion for transforming lives.

Recognized by Shape Magazine as the 11th most inspiring woman of all time, Cyndy’s influence extends far beyond her accolades. Her remarkable journey of steadfast loyalty and support during her husband, Travis Barnes’ 10-year incarceration, exemplifies her strength and commitment.

Cyndy’s role in her husband’s transformation into a leading figure in the fitness industry cannot be overstated. Often working behind the scenes, she is truly the unsung hero of their shared success.

In a recent pivot, driven by a deep-seated call to IMPACT more lives, Cyndy and Travis have rebranded their franchise to join forces with Todd Durkin’s IMPACT-X Performance, marking the beginning of a new chapter in their mission to inspire and transform lives through fitness.

Jill Rooks, based in Loma Linda, CA, and a business owner in Redlands, CA, embarks on a profound journey driven by her passion for health and well-being.

Introduced to fitness in 7th grade by her parents, she later explored swimming and water polo in high school. Jill learned early the vital role of movement for her health, given her family’s history of heart disease.

Her 30-year weight loss journey deepened her understanding of the intrinsic link between physical and mental health, inspiring her to establish The Energy Lab in 2011, with its complementary yoga-inspired space, The Fort.

Rooted in her belief in the interconnectedness of mind, body, and spirit, Jill is committed to facilitating holistic well-being for her clients. Guided by the proverb, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together,” Jill thrives on collaboration, exemplified by her involvement with Todd Durkin’s Mastermind since 2009, leading to her role as a coach within the Mastermind team, where she thrives on supporting fellow fitness professionals and entrepreneurs in their journeys toward success.

Her WHY, rooted in her father’s passing from a heart attack, drives her mission to promote heart health and holistic wellness.

Edward Hertzman is an innovative entrepreneur who has launched multiple successful businesses across the media, fitness, wellness and sourcing verticals. He is also a well-known “voice of the industry” and an early-stage investor in promising firms.

His latest venture, Athletech News (Athletechnews.com), came in response to a need from the fitness industry for community, representation and “a seat at the table.” Much like sourcing more than a decade ago, fitness and wellness has been an under-appreciated, under-reported-on industry, with little light shone on the robust investments in the space and the dynamic leaders that drive these businesses. Athletech News is the answer.

In 2009, after years on the ground as a supply chain executive, Hertzman founded Sourcing Journal. Today, SJ is the largest trade journal devoted to the sourcing apparel and textile industry supply chain in the world. In 2017, Hertzman sold the company to Penske Media Group. He remained on board as President for 5 years, during which time he was promoted to EVP of all Fairchild Media Titles, tasked with growing their portfolio of publications, while continuing to lead the day-to-day operations at Sourcing Journal.

In 2023, Hertzman left to launch his second media enterprise, Athletech Media Group. ATN has quickly become the media of record for the fitness and wellness industry with more than 100,000 subscribers since its recent debut.

Hertzman continues to consult for several retail and supply chain companies and through his company, Hertzman Global Ventures, he has made targeted investments in both PE funds and supply chain tech companies including Active Source Lab.

Hertzman is also a sought-after speaker, sharing his expertise at leading industry conferences and events. His thought leadership has helped shape the way the industry approaches sustainability, commercial compliance, and global sourcing strategies.

Hertzman received a degree in economics from NYU and spent more than a decade working as a top executive for major sourcing companies all over the world, including Synergies Worldwide and Pearl Global. He also sits on the Board for Delivering Good, a charitable organization that channels the resources of the fashion industry to those in need.

Incorporating wellness into a brand isn’t simply a quick fix for earning profits. Rather, it is an opportunity for an organization to go on a journey with their consumers toward a better future.”
