Founder & Chief Movement Jedi
Austin Einhorn is an extremely curious person on a journey to take human performance beyond current possibilities. This curiosity has resulted in gaining a functional expertise in more than just movement. He understands that in order for an athlete to be their best self, we must cultivate everything from their language with themselves and others, his/her energy, the optimization of their cellular biology, and their psychology. He believes that everyone's path is unique to their own and is ready to walk that path with them one step at a time.
He was a three-time all-American middle blocker while at the University of California, Santa Cruz and a former professional volleyball player. After his volleyball career he pursued his passion in all things movement and sport related. As a movement specialist, Austin has had the privilege of working with athletes from the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, PGA, USTA, professional surfing, and professional volleyball. Austin currently advises the Men’s National Volleyball Team on biomechanics and skill acquisition. In 2016 Austin traveled several times to China at the request of the Chinese Olympic Committee to train and educate its gold-medal athletes, olympians, and the doctors, therapists, and trainers on staff. Austin volunteers with Stanford's mens volleyball team, enhancing the team's movement quality and volleyball skill acquisition.
Austin is also a Flow Genome Project coach, working to decode ultimate human performance in the brain and body. Austin represents Microgate on the west coast. Microgate is a technology company known for elite sports science testing and training. He is a Microgate advisor to the Houston Rockets, Seattle Seahawks, and Altis at Lake Tahoe.

Aaron Quinn, DPT, PT
Aaron graduated from the University of California Davis with degree in Genetics then went on to earn his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Azusa Pacific University. After graduating from Azusa, he did a 9 month residency program in Vallejo California, specializing in Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF). Aaron taught residents and worked with people suffering from neurological insults (strokes, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries) as a faculty member for 5 years. In 2015, he moved the Santa Cruz area and has worked in the orthopedic and athletic setting expanding his skills in Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS).
Aaron is also an Anat Baniel Method Practitioner (anatbanielmethod.com), completing a 4 year training in 2015. Anat Baniel developed her method from the direct work partnership with Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais. Through his years of training, Aaron had the opportunity to help a wide variety of clients from children with special needs, people suffering from chronic pain or neurological insults, to high level athletes. He has dedicated his career to treating every client as an individual, addressing his or her physical, mental, and spiritual needs to reach that person’s maximum potential. His unique skill set provides an approach to his clients outside the traditional models that can lead to limitations in performance. One of Aaron’s cornerstone beliefs comes from the wise words of Dr. Feldenkrais, “Movement is life. Life is a process. Improve the quality of the process and you improve the quality of life itself.”

The Apiros Extended family
I am an adventurer, a creator and an explorer — both of the physical world and of the human mind; searching for truth and ultimate human potential. Halfway through his poker career I read a book: The Art of Learning by Josh Waitzkin which changed everything. In short, it sent me on a journey inward and a journey towards a different way of being. I retired from poker to live my next dream of coaching highly intrinsically motivated individuals who lean into the idea of what life might be like living on a world-class growth and learning curve. I help my clients live on that accelerated curve to go from good to great or great to truly elite. I work with entrepreneurs, leaders, creators, professional athletes, and professional poker players.
Dr. Scott Sherr
Dr. Scott Sherr is a physician, a father to four amazing children, a husband, a creator, and a synergizer. For Dr. Scott, the box was broken a long time ago....and out of the box, there is wonder, love, and the potential for raising consciousness and healing if we work together.
Formally, he is an internal medicine physician specializing in Health Optimization Medicine (HOMe) and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT). He is the Founding Organizer of Health Optimization Medicine (HOMe)–USA, a new paradigm of wellness medicine drawn from the current specialties of anti-aging medicine, nutritional medicine, longevity medicine, regenerative medicine, age management medicine, sports medicine, and rejuvenative medicine. HOMe will bridge conventional and alternative medicine through both physician and practitioner training as well as by providing a turnkey practice platform.
Dr. Sherr also believes that HBOT--the administration of 100% oxygen at greater than atmospheric pressure -- is one of the most powerful ways to decrease inflammation, accelerate wound healing, and optimize both physical and cognitive performance. He is one of the few HBOT providers in the country that creates personalized treatment plans for patients that include HOMe, cutting edge & dynamic HBOT protocols as well as adjunctive technologies. He also has a large network of practitioners in various health fields (movement, performance coaching, meditation, cannabis, neurofeedback, and many more) that he will often leverage for a patient's optimal outcome.
