In 2013, former American Gladiator (“Nitro”) Dan Clark, a lifelong athlete and retired professional football player, suffered a heart attack, an event that brought him face-to-face with his own mortality, catapulting him from a life where everything seemed possible to a life where he felt nothing was for certain. In the aftermath, he didn’t care whether he lived or died.

Having recently cheated death, Clark realized his recovery depended on his willingness to embrace the fullness of his life in a new way. 

He chose to build his life on authentic happiness.
