He’s been called the football equivalent of a horse whisperer. One former colleague swears he has ‘Zen Master’ qualities; another insists that if the human body was an engine, he would be the mechanic fine-tuning it.

Steve Saunders Consults to Golden State Warriors
Dec 11, 2015
Steve Saunders recently consulted to a number of NBA teams including the Golden State Warriors. The video is Steph Curry at a post training skills session shooting 3 pointers like they were free throws. Steph is the current league MVP and both he and the reigning NBA champions have this season taken their games to the next level!!
The key areas of consultation that Steve provided came under injury prevention, performance maximization strategies, and team culture. This is based on his work as High Performance Manager and Director of Sports Science and Medicine at the North Melbourne Kangaroos in the AFL. He was attending North Melbourne's high altitude pre-season training camp in Utah at the time.
