Professionals I’ve Worked With

During the last decade working in the NFL, Derek Hansen has been a constant resource for me in several areas. Whether it is advice on rehabilitation, speed development, electrical muscle stimulation protocols or even building a hill. I can’t tell you how much I value our conversations where we are able to both learn from each other to become better at what we do. We work in an incredibly competitive industry and he is one of the leaders in our field.

Marc Uyeyama – Minnesota Vikings

“I have used Derek as a consultant for our strength and conditioning program here with the Chiefs . . . With all of his experience and knowledge he has contributed greatly to our program. He is totally committed to making a difference in our field and has made a difference.”

Barry Rubin – KC Chiefs
