Danny  Cahill

Danny Cahill was a contestant on Season 8 of NBC’s The Biggest Loser - “Second Chances.” Over the course of just under seven months he lost an incredible 239 pounds, or 56% of his total body weight. Danny holds the title for the men’s highest percentage of weight loss in the show’s history (55.58%), the record for the most consecutive weeks with double-digit weight loss (7 weeks), and was the first in history to lose more than 200 pounds before the show’s finale weigh-in.  Danny went to the ranch for far more than to win money or prizes – He went there to save his life for his family! As a result, he became The Biggest Loser Ever and has inspired millions worldwide to begin not only their weight loss journey, but to achieve their dreams and goals, become better role models for their children, and become inspirations those around them. Danny has learned the importance of living with a healthy mental attitude and physical lifestyle. It’s no wonder he set several records during Season 8 of NBC‘s The Biggest Loser! He can now happily say he is “less than half the man he used to be!”


Since winning “The Biggest Loser”, Danny has appeared on numerous national television programs including The Today Show, The Jay Leno Show, Live with Regis & Kelly, The Doctors, The Joy Behar show, Larry King Live, The Suze Orman Show, Issues with Jane Valez-Mitchell, Joyce Meyer’s Everyday Living, and many more!  He writes and records music and is now a highly sought after Motivational Speaker with an untold story you won’t believe! He will inspire any listener to reach new heights, reclaim their hopes and dreams, and move forward and face any obstacle in life! He has acted in the movie, “A Christmas Snow” and has spoken for over 150 companies, churches, and organizations. If you want to motivate and inspire your listeners, Danny Cahill is the speaker for you!


Danny’s speaking career began shortly after The Biggest Loser and he has appeared for The Williams Company Inc., Chick-Fil-A Inc., The University of Oklahoma, Arvest Bank Mortgage, St. Francis Health System, Kohls, Dover Corporation, and at numerous community events and churches around the country.  Since beginning his speaking career he has spoken to millions of people at events in 6 countries and 45 states.


His presentation will be a turning point in any listener’s life. It’s not a speech, it’s an experience! The events on The Biggest Loser, as well as during his life, held the secrets to his own success – he just had to change his perspective and see it a different way. The principals to success are the same in any area: business, relationships, finances – allowing Danny to help the listener not only relate to his story, but see his journey in their own life.


Perfect for Corporations, Associations, Government and Educational groups, churches, as well as anyone needing to make a change in their life or achieve that goal and dream that was once thought unattainable!  He presents for his clients on goal setting, breaking through barriers, healthy living, team building and in a spiritual setting Danny shares his testimony, often with his wife, Darci, about how God intervened to orchestrate the amazing miracles in their lives.


Married for 18 years, Danny now lives in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma with his wife Darci, son David, and daughter Mary Claire.

Danny's Most Requested Programs:

Lose Your Quit


Follows the outline of my book, 4 Topics about MOTIVATION, CHANGE and HEALTH & WELLNESS.  The topics are:


Lose Your Quit (Don’t give up)

Lose your Regrets (Learn from Mistakes & move on)

Lose the Lies (Own it, and then change it! Drop the excuses!)

Find Your Why (With a WHY, the HOW becomes tolerable!)



Finding Your Purpose


This is for Churches & Faith Based organizations and is based on the greatest commandment.  The path to get there is hidden until the very end, where an “AHA!” moment happens with the listener/congregation.  It is very powerful and give people a new outlook on serving others.





This is based on finding the reason behind what you really want to achieve.  It is a talk based on defining the purpose behind your pain.  Success isn’t easy to achieve, but it’s also not complicated.  When you FOCUS all areas into 1 point, success becomes inevitable.  It is how I lost 239 pounds in 6 ½ Months!



Want Change? Change your PERSPECTIVE!


This is a talk about how the things we perceive as negative in our lives can be turned into a positive force for change.  When we change our perspective we in turn change our story – and change becomes real and inviting!



Experiential Training: 


I provide a variety of experiential exercises designed to create a large amount of change in a very short amount of time.  An example might be a hot stove.  When you’re told it’s hot, you know it in your head, but you may not totally believe it in your heart (subconscious).  When you touch the hot stove, you know it’s hot, you believe it’s hot, and you experience it as HOT!  It moves from your HEAD to your HEART and now it STAYS WITH YOU, forever changing your response.  Here are some examples of module I teach:



Self Worth

Personalities (approximately 3-4 Hour exercise, but can be touched on in 90 minutes)

Goal Setting

Champion Moments

Ground & Center

A to B

Don’t Participate

Programs/Tapes and Limiting Beliefs

I’m Right!

Broken Commitments/Missed Opportunities



These modules can be taught in secular, corporate, and faith-based settings. 



“Danny, Thank you so much for taking part in our Operators Seminar. Your comments were both inspiring and challenging. Many Operators shared with me how your three phrases: Find Your Why, Tackle the How, and Lose Your Quit, impacted them.  Your encouragement to “Lose Your Quit” really resonated with our Operators and challenged them to keep working on their goals!  Your contribution could not have been better.  Thank you!” 

Cliff Robinson, Vice President, Field Operations. – Chick-Fil-A



 “I am writing to recommend professional speaking service of Danny Cahill, winner of Season 8’s The Biggest Loser competition on NBC.  Danny came to us from a well respected referral…We have received great feedback from our employees and I was surprised to see how well Danny resonated with the employee demographics. There are many examples of how Danny inspired our employees to take steps toward their health. One woman was so inspired by his presentation that she immediately drafted her goals, placed some of Danny’s quotes on an inspiration board in her office for motivation, and has been working throughout the year to better her health (she has been very successful and is staying with it!)  A male employee who was a former marine…was brought to tears when Danny talked about how his decisions had affected his family.  Many stories like this illustrate Danny’s natural ability to connect to the audience with his humor, sincerity, optimism and his down to earth nature.  I recommend Danny highly and am extremely pleased with his involvement in our program.”

Sonja Sterling, Williams Companies, Health & Group Benefits



“Thank you for taking part in our Autodesk ATC (Autodesk Training Center) Summit…You talk on Learning Winning Tips to ‘Lose Your Quit’ is still a buzz within the channel even 9 months later.  It was an honor for Gilmore Global and Autodesk ACT Community to be able to hear your ideas and witness your personal transformation.” 

Julie Gaudet, Director, Customer Operations, Gilmore global Logistics Services Inc.



“Dear Mr. Cahill, Thank you for presenting…for the Oklahoma State Medical Association and Physicians Liability Insurance Company at the Oklahoma State Medical Association Annual CME Meeting. The support, leadership, collaboration and outstanding participation of you and other presenters like you are necessary to make this program successful and to continue to meet the needs of the medical staff.  Again, thank you so very much for your outstanding presentation and your dedication to continuing medical education.”

Sandy Deeba, OSMA CME Manager, Gilmore Global Logistics Services Inc.



“Our experience with Danny Cahill could not have been better.  We had the privilege of hosting him at our church on a recent Sunday morning.  His presentation exceeded our expectations.  He was very professional, and yet very personal.  We had people drive from 75 miles away because they knew his name, and wanted to hear him speak…and they realized that his authentic faith was a crucial part of his remarkable story.  I could not recommend Danny highly enough.  If you are looking for a captivating, life-changing, genuine speaker, look no further.”

Mark Tindle, Lead Pastor, Seneca Creek Community Church
