This week we are joined by The Performance Doctors, three leaders dedicated to creating the optimal environment for your athletes to thrive. They are Dr Michael Mantell, Dr, Darin Davidson, and Dr. Brendan Meany. 

For nearly 50 years Dr. Michael Mantell has focused on how improving mindset climate positively influences optimal performance, helps people disturb themselves less, and creates lasting positive behavior change. Since earning his Ph.D. at the University of Pennsylvania in 1976, he’s been riveted on alleviating suffering and accelerating peak efficiency, from serving as Chief Psychologist for San Diego’s Children’s Hospital and the San Diego Police Department, to supporting elite amateur and professional athletes, to giving psychology away and making it public throughout national and international media. He is best known for his international best seller Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff

Dr. Darin Davidson is an Orthopaedic surgeon and polyvagal informed coach focusing on promoting health, wellbeing, and sustainable high performance amongst professionals in high demand, high pressure environments.

Dr. Brendan Meany is a coach, educator, researcher, writer, and yoga instructor. As a doctor of sport and performance psychology, his work focuses on optimizing individual and group performance through research-based psychological frameworks, interventions, and skills. Dr. Meany is a former collegiate athlete and rugby player with experience coaching college football and rugby in Argentina, Belize, Japan, and South Africa.
