Spartan Up! - A Spartan Race for the Mind!

“Listen, some people are whooped right now. Wag your tail, find what's good in your life. Find gratitude, what's going on. Write it down. Because the one thing, when I come home, good day or bad day, and there are days that are bad and I'm tired and everything else, or come home from a trip and it didn't go the way I wanted, or back's hurting or something like that. Guess what? I'm coming home to a waggin' tail,” says Todd Durkin, Motivational Speaker, Personal Trainer, Best Selling Author and Life Transformer.

Jarod and TD went a bit off topic during the Life Fueled by Fitness series and talked about some other essential practices we need to be utilizing everyday.  JC and Yancy also give us a great rundown on how Todd actually walks the talk.  This episode is about finding those things to be grateful for and to “wag your tail” no matter the circumstances.  In this episode, you’ll learn about:

  • Getting your energy flowing and getting juiced up


  • Following your dreams


  • The value of time


  • Being the hardest worker in the room


  • And last but not least, always wag your tail
