“I look at everything from a slightly different perspective than everybody else. I love to do that. And one of my big rules is if everybody's going on one way, you should run the other way as fast as you can.” – David Nurse


In today’s episode, Dr. Shah and Kevin bring light to performance hacks and maximum life optimization tips inspired by a conversation with David Nurse, a powerhouse life-coach, bio-hacking, performance-enhancing specialist who has worked with over 100 NBA players - dynamos like LeBron James, who spends over $1.5 million a year to be the most frightening defender on an NBA court.

Nurse has been called the “crunch time king,” and a “basketball gypsy.” He started out as a shooting coach for the Brooklyn Nets in 2016 and blossomed into an NBA-whisperer. He turns already-great players with 3% body fat and impeccable stats into formidable forces that plow through games with ease and grace. He’s developed some of the top players in the NBA by teaching accessible lifestyle tips that people who aren’t 7-foot-11 can still employ.

Nurse explains how his athletes make extreme lifestyle changes but apply them just one percent at a time to achieve astounding outcomes. These habits can enhance anyone’s life, not just people like LeBron James, Kawhi Leonard, or James Hardin. You too can function at a “Next Level” of health, mindset, and performance, no matter what your “net” goal is in life.

If you want to know how to hack your health and mindset like an elite athlete without spending a small fortune, you won’t want to miss this deeply informative talk.
