Dr. Lance Von Stade, D.C., ATC, CSCS

Von Stade

As a professional with a 20-year sports medicine and performance career, Dr. Lance has held notable positions that span the human performance continuum. He was the head athletic trainer and strength coach for the USA Water Polo Women’s Senior National Team through back-to-back world championship gold medals in 2009 and 2010. Leading up to the 2012 Olympic Games, he lived in Beijing and worked as the performance specialist for the Chinese Women’s Olympic Judo Team, who earned the Olympic Silver Medal in London. He was also the athletic trainer for the USA Boys’ Youth National Team for their Bronze medal performance at the 2010 Pan-Am Cup. He has served on countless multidisciplinary sports medicine teams for organizations such as the Association of Volleyball Professionals, US Open of Surfing, USA Wrestling, USA Taekwondo, the Surf City Marathon, Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival, St. Ignatius College Preparatory athletics, and more. As a co-founder of Kairos Training Culture, he has facilitated 78 seminars and more than 1,000 sessions of movement, breathwork, and meditation in more than thirty cities and six countries since 2012. As a teacher, Dr. Lance has taught the subject of sports medicine at the high school level, the subject of cellular physiology at Life Chiropractic College West and designed online courses for chiropractic continuing education on the subjects of breathing, movement, and emotional intelligence. He created an online program titled The Sustainable Movement Module designed to help chiropractors prevent work-related injuries and to improve the performance of their art while serving patients. As a business owner, he founded one company, co-founded another, and bought a third. With the first company, he took his licks and earned his lessons before closing it down. He helped grow the second business to a six-figure international powerhouse and sold it to his co-founder while continuing to help grow it to a 7-figure pillar of online learning and in-person training for the chiropractic profession globally. The third business is a chiropractic office that he acquired, tripled (in locations and earnings) and operates with a quadruple bottom-line (people, purpose, planet, profit). Since 2021, Golden Gate Chiropractic has donated 1% of its gross revenue to environmental nonprofits, shared 50% of its profits with employees, and created an employee stock ownership program. He now owns and operates three locations of Golden Gate Chiropractic, facilitates with Kairos Training Culture, provides 1-on-1 coaching for chiropractors growing their businesses, and works as a Movement and Performance Consultant improving the Olympic Development Curricula for USA National Governing Bodies (NGBs). Above all, the positions that fulfill him most are coaching his son’s baseball, soccer, and basketball teams and teaching at his son’s Co-op Preschool.
