Hey, I'm Todd and:
- I own a gym called South Loop Strength & Conditioning.
- I work coach athletes via Legion Strength & Conditioning.
- I play in two bands - one is called Like Rats and the other is called Hate Force.
- My friend Brandon Heavey and I put together a podcast season and starting and growing a fitness business called "From Coach to Business"
Before all that, I got a Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Degree from University of Illinois — Urbana-Champaign. I briefly thought that I wanted to go into academia, but ended up touring regularly with bands instead for a few years.
Since then, I've accidentally stumbled into a career in the fitness industry.
I made this site as a place to "learn out loud" about a lot of seemingly disparate topics.
On my podcast, I interview academics, musicians, entrepreneurs, coaches, and athletes, and I try to unpack their mental models. I always get something out of the conversations, and I hope that others do as well.
I also send out a weekly newsletter with anything I've written or recorded, as well as some of the articles, podcasts, and music I've been enjoying.
