After five years at the helm of the Denver Broncos strength and conditioning program, nationally renowned sports performance coach Loren Landow has informed players and staff that he is parting ways with the team.
Landow is no stranger to the sports performance field, having worked as a personal sports performance trainer and coach for 27 years prior to his hire by the Broncos in 2018. He has trained thousands of athletes, including Olympians and professional athletes from the NFL, NHL, MLB, UFC and WNBA.
While the Broncos suffered an unusually high number of injuries during the 2022 season, the cause is still up for debate. There was a theory that an unusual practice schedule devised by head coach Nathaniel Hackett may have been a factor, as well as the team’s extensive travel schedule and their uneven first-half schedule that included overseas games.
However, it’s not uncommon for a team to bring in a new head coach with their own assistant coaches, and Sean Payton, the new head coach of the Broncos, is likely to bring in his own strength and conditioning coach.
As for Landow, he has decided to pursue other opportunities and will continue to run his successful high performance practice, Landow Performance, in Centennial. He is well-liked in the locker room and will be missed by the team.
