Darren Hansen, Director of Marketing and Public Relations & HansenAthletics Owner and Head Coach

Darren was born and raised in Pocatello and graduated from Highland High School in 2010 with the opportunity to attend Utah State University. While attending Utah State, he was the founder of the USU Strength and Conditioning program that served over 150 students and athletes a semester. During this time he also competed nationally in Olympic Weightlifting and has since been named a National Coach for the United States Of America Weightlifting Association.

After receiving his degree in Exercise Science he spent a year in Salt Lake City learning from the Olympic strength coaches at the University of Utah while growing his online coaching platform that currently houses strength athletes from all over the world.

Darren took his first opportunity to move back to Pocatello to open up a physical location for HansenAthletics with a focus on providing an individualized coaching experience that takes a performance-based approach to develop proper movement patterns, strength, and pain-free movement that has a direct carry over to life and sport. Through nearly a decade of coaching, he has worked with a wide array of clients and has experience with all ages and ability levels.

Throughout the development of his online training platform he developed a skill set that included: digital marketing, website development, and advertising contracts. He is now the Director of Marketing and Public Relations at Streamline Sports Physical Therapy.
