He has had the opportunity to work with multiple Olympic and World Champions, athletes and teams competing in the NBA, NFL, and MLB. His passion is coaching his clients to achieve their full potential with a focus on the development of self-awareness and personal mastery.

In this episode I do a deep dive with Darren and get a behind the scenes look in to what makes the mind of a champion. Athletes are regular people, like you and I, and they come to work with the same issues, anxieties and troubles we all have to deal with. An often overlooked aspect of Recovery Is the mental aspect of recovery. More Is not always better especially on the mental side and Darren does a great job discussing what It takes to give athletes the edge they need.
