Small Business of the Year

Assemblymember Brian Maienschein recently recognized local Fitness Quest 10 as the 2015 Small Business of the Year for the 77th Assembly District. The Scripps Ranch business is owned by Todd Durkin, who spent his career training professional NFL, MLB, and WNBA athletes before opening his gym in 2000. The business has grown from small beginnings into a full-service gym with a staff of 38, and has been named one of the top 10 gyms in the country by Men’s Health for the past four years. “For 15 years, Todd has used his expertise working with some of the country’s top professional athletes to inspire people of all ages to take control of their lives by making healthier diet and exercise choices,” said Maienschein.

“Fitness Quest 10 was founded on my belief that every single person can lead a healthy, fulfilling life if they have the discipline, have a positive attitude, and surround themselves with the right people,” said Durkin. “It is an incredible honor to be recognized by Assemblymember Maienschein as the 2015 Small Business of the year, and I am proud to share the recognition with the hardworking Fitness Quest 10 team and all of our clients.”

The Small Business of the Year for each district is nominated by that district’s legislator every year and recognized by the California Small Business Association. Legislators select businesses based on their business ethics and community services, and winning business owners travel to Sacramento to receive their award. Last year’s Small Business of the Year Award went to ZCode Magazines. Publisher and Co-Owner Derrick Breaux, Creative Director and Co-Owner Tyler McElhaney, Editor Sarabeth McElhaney, and Director of Business Development Jessica Breaux were proud to accept the award on behalf of the rest of the team.
