KLAMATH FALLS Ore- Healthy Klamath is pleased to be bringing Todd Durkin, a legend in the fitness community, to Klamath Falls on October 28th. He’ll give a motivational speech, lead a workout, and do a book signing at Klamath Union’s Pell Court. It’s an event that you won’t want to miss.

It’s rare to get such a celebrity visiting the Klamath Basin and even Southern Oregon in general. Durkin is truly a world-class coach, trainer, author, and speaker. Healthy Klamath works to increase physical activity opportunities in Klamath Falls, and bringing Todd Durkin to town was identified as a way to get the community motivated to move more.

“Being so rural, our community doesn’t always get guests like Todd. Oftentimes, we have to travel to go see speakers or entertainment. Now, instead of having to go to Portland or San Francisco, we have a world-class speaker coming to us.” said Merritt Driscoll, Executive Director at Healthy Klamath.

Healthy Klamath is running its first ever Klamath Falls Into Fitness campaign this October and November. The goal is to challenge the community to be healthier and happier by moving more and eating better. So far there are nearly 200 people who have taken the pledge to challenge themselves this fall.

“Durkin is acting as our keynote speaker for our greater Klamath Falls Into Fitness campaign.” Jessica Kostick, Community Engagement Manager at Healthy Klamath explained. “Who doesn’t need a little motivation in their lives? Todd is a perfect speaker to inspire people to live their best lives and create IMPACT in their community.” Kostick continued.

Todd Durkin has trained professional athletes like Drew Brees, Golden Tate, Zach Ertz, Darren Sproles, LaDainian Tomlinson, Reggie Bush, Aaron Rodgers, Carson Palmer, and Tony Gwynn Jr. His fitness training experience has led him to write best selling books, host a popular podcast, and give speeches around the world. Todd is an expert in his field and an inspiration to those who give him the time to hear what he has to say and learn from his experiences.

Thanks to Sky Lakes Medical Center, this event will be free to the public. Although it’s a free event, people are still asked to get tickets so that capacity can be anticipated. You can get your tickets by going to healthyklamath.com.
