TBS puts ten top questions to top middleweight, light heavyweight and cruiserweight champion, The Green Machine, Danny Green.
TBS: What do you think is the key factor in you ending up where you are today, career-wise?
Desire. When I set myself a goal, I set myself a strategy to reach that goal, and push myself that little bit harder each day.
TBS: Who do you consider the most intriguing public figure to watch at the moment?
I’m currently watching out for Mark Matthews, the “lunatic” big wave surfer. The mental preparation to tackle a Goliath wave – it would have to be intense. Inspirational!
TBS: What is the worst way for a person to try and get your attention on social media?
To Tweet me referencing a personal connection, when I’m not aware of who they are.
TBS: If you could determine the exact influence you have on a young person, what do you hope she or he would gain from observing you?
Respect. To show respect for others. It is a value that I’ve always held close in my career, and I believe has been a determining factor that has gotten me to where I am today.
TBS: What advice would you give a 15-year-old Danny Green?
Take your time. There’s no need to rush. Enjoy the process…
TBS: What is your most annoying trait?
Haha, you will have to ask around!
TBS: What is the one gift you will pretty much always re-gift?
Bottles of wine.
TBS: What is your favourite inspirational quote or person, as cliché as it may be?
“Milk was a bad choice.” I try to not take everything so seriously, and Will Ferrell’s quotes in Anchorman, I can’t go past.
TBS: What do you want people to get out of the Team Danny Green concept; how do our readers get involved?
Fitness is not all about looking good; it’s more about feeling good, and being the best you can be to enjoy quality time with your family. It’s about helping others reach a strong mental headspace to set goals, stick to limits, and live a positive, happy, healthy life. You can enjoy life’s indulgences once in a while – though learning to not beat yourself up – and focus on getting back on track. Anyone can sign up – men, women, families. For nine weeks, the program will help shape your diet routine and set attainable goals to get you moving.
TBS: What has been your favourite part of leading Team Danny Green?
Hearing from Team Danny Green champions with their own personal journey to get in shape, and the incredibly positive effect it’s had on their relationships and family…it inspires me to get up each morning and do what I do. I’m incredibly fortunate to be in a position where I’ve lived a life that revolved around eating the right thing, training the right way, being as strong as I can be mentally, and general self discipline. To be able to share these life experiences with others is an absolute privilege.
