Ninjapreneurs: Rachel and Duncan Richardson of Bodies In Motion, Boise, Idaho, Part 1
These two are in seriously great shape, and they throw axes: We have a real, live American Ninja Warrior and his partner in muscle tone. Duncan and Rachel Richardson own a cool, one-of-a-kind gym called Bodies In Motion. You’re going to hear a lot about fitness—and teamwork. A hopeful for the TV show, American Ninja Warrior, Duncan never got a callback on his audition video. But then came the open-heart surgery. He and Rachel took a “vacation” at the Cleveland Clinic—and used the surgery as a video opportunity. Guess who finally got a callback from American Ninja Warrior. In their daily lives, they run a gym that trains other Ninja hopefuls, has cool stuff engineered for maximum workout and thrills and, yes, there’s axe throwing. Their dueling degrees in marketing and civil engineering have been useful. You’ll also hear about an all-in sense of partnership, and the entrepreneurial power that comes with listening to your kids. And where does a plush horse costume fit in all this?
