Podcast 45:18 Don Moxley- Applied Sports Scientist on Cannabinoids & Recovery

Don Moxley is the Director of Applied Science and Brand Development at Grow Healthy in North Palm Beach, FL.

Don (in his own words): over 30 years experience of improving the performance or alleviating the unnecessary suffering of humans, or teaching others how to do the same. Experienced leader, Highly skilled sports scientist with over 30 years experience in elite sport. Understanding the central nervous system and how to measure individuals’ status led me to explore the different modalities used to adjust or “tune” the autonomic system. I’m currently exploring how cannabinoids can play a part in human performance and reducing human suffering.

I am an exercise physiologist who specializes in fitness/athletic assessment, player training and performance optimization. My expertise includes extensive use of wearable technology for assessment. I am experienced using Omegawave, Firstbeat, Polar, Mio, Heartmath, Zephyr, Velotron, Halo as well as many other tools.

My last 3 years have been focused on supporting the Ohio State University Wrestling Team. Prior experience includes working as an Asst. Professor and Coordinator of the Exercise Science program at Urbana University. Owner of Lemonade Neighborhood Fitness. Founder and CEO of ViA Performance Systems. I’ve worked as the Director of Sales for Polar Electro and coached at The Ohio State University. Additionally, I have directed training programs for Olympic Medalists, NCAA All-Americans, professionals, fitness clubs, physical education programs and sports organizations across the continent.

I wrestled for The Ohio State University where I captained the team and earned a Big 10 Championship in 1985. I like to keep myself in the classroom teaching physiology, kinesiology, exercise physiology and nutrition courses at local colleges. My daughter Jaclen is a member of the Ohio State University Lacrosse Team, her mother and I are very proud of her and the growth mindset that nurtures her growth.
