“Why did it happen...and why did I live?”

“...Turn your burners on and fire-up the human spirit!”

-Matt Long

 

In Episode 99, the Two Fit Crazies are left speechless from the most amazingly inspirational story of one man’s battle for survival after being hit by a 40-ton bus on the streets of New York City at 5:30AM on December 22nd, 2005. With a 1% chance for survival even after receiving over 68 units of blood, Matt Long was not about to give up. As a NYC firefighter, triathlete, marathoner, and IRONMAN at the time of the accident, Matt discusses how his elite fitness level “literally” saved his life. Although Matt champions an “I WILL” attitude, he also shares what it was like to wish his mother had prayed for him to die instead of having to endure the slow and painful process of rehabilitating a body that was practically sliced in two. Unbelievably, Matt not only survived the day he and his bicycle were crushed beneath the 10” space between a charter bus and the asphalt, but also recalls the mental journey to recovery! After more than 40 operations and years of rehabilitation, Matt has since returned to the New York City Marathon, IRONMAN Lake Placid, cycling, and even holds 8 world records for the indoor rower! Matt also discuss his inspirational book, The Long Run, as well as his love for public speaking engagements and why he decided to be a franchisee for Orangetheory Fitness. Prepare to be inspired!

“You can’t change anything on the outside until you change the inside.” 

“Run at the fear! Attack it!”  -Todd Durkin   

In Episode 88, 13-years after Christine first moved to the Jersey shore and heard of this living legend, the Two Fit Crazies got fired up talking with a true “fire-breathing dragon” by the name of TODD DURKIN. Todd, a native to the Jersey shore, opens up about overcoming incredible adversity through his ability to run at fear, remain purpose-driven, and view his experiences as part of his necessary journey to find his purpose. In this incredibly moving episode, Todd explains how his obedience and drive propelled him from an under-privileged boy in Brick, New Jersey to one of the top 100 greatest health and fitness influencers of all time! Todd discusses the importance of “filling up your well” and taking care of yourself on a physical, mental, and spiritual level. This, Todd proclaims, is one of his keys to success and remaining grounded.

Todd also talks about what it is like to train top NFL and MLB players as well as the people he looks to for strength and guidance. From training pro-athletes, giving keynote speeches, writing books, recording live social media content, and inspiring the world, Todd Durkin is a truly amazing human being. This episode will inspire you to “RUN AT YOUR FEAR!”     

 

Enjoy!
