You have heard me say “Live a Life Worth Telling a Story About” a thousand times. Today, you will listen to me talk with Travis Barnes, who has one heckuva story. Travis grew up in a broken home, was incarcerated at the age of 18 for a decade, and lived in a FEMA trailer when he decided to start a fitness franchise. Since that time, he has grown Journey 333 to multiple locations, has become an author sharing his journey, and is a keynote speaker both in and out of the fitness industry.


In today’s episode, we discuss:

- How he got incarcerated and spent a decade in prison.

- How he went from spiritual suicide to franchise owner. 

- How Todd & Travis met and what drew Travis to working with Todd closer in his “Power of 10” Mastermind Group.

- Advice to parents who have kids facing adversity.

- How Wayne Dyer has impacted Travis.

- What Journey 333 looks like today and wisdom that Travis recommends to any fitness pro fighting during this pandemic.

- Travis spittin’ fire!

About Travis Barnes:

Before Travis Barnes became a best-selling author, international presenter, founder, and franchisor of Journey Fitness 333, he spent a decade of his life in prison for a nonviolent drug offense. Upon returning home to his wife and daughter, he worked hard to buy them a home of their own, only to have it flooded to the second floor. Travis Barnes began his fitness franchise while on an unemployment check and living in a FEMA trailer. Simply put, Travis Barnes is an overcomer, and it is his passion to help others overcome adversity and live their dreams.


Travis has been mentored by Todd Durkin for 9-years and has been an active participant in the Todd Durkin Mastermind and his “Power of 10” group for the last 6-years. Travis has spoken at IDEA, Perform Better, SCW, Filex, and the TD 3.5 Mentorship Program. Additionally, Travis has keynoted to many businesses and conferences outside of fitness.
