Branden Collinsworth went from being broke, homeless, and a high school dropout to an internationally renowned performance coach and founder of The Jump for Joy Foundation and Real Results Fitness. He became one of the first trainers signed globally to Nike, received a Master's in Positive Psychology from UPenn, and collaborated with Nike to launch Nike Yoga - Nike's first yoga performance apparel line.
He also co-created the first comprehensive yoga program on the Nike Training Club app, with workouts that serve millions across the world monthly. In 2017, he launched Warrior Retreats, a 16-day physical and spiritual rite of passage for leaders in Peru. He is also the Global Director for The Tropical Pathology and Infectious Disease Association, a humanitarian nonprofit based in Peru, and one of the Founding Experts for Mined, the first digital emotional platform rooted in amplifying emotional well-being and human pathos.
Branden is committed to creating a global movement for love built upon his own training fundamentals: mindset, exercise, meditation, and mastery. Currently, he is serving as head of Innovation and Human Performance for Core Power Yoga and is still diligently at work with Nike as one of their Global Trainers and Yoga Teachers.
