Our Story

In 2017 Breathe to Perform co-founders David Bidler and Lex Clark set out on a mission to share the science of stress management and peak performance.

David was operating The Distance Project, a performance training center for endurance athletes in Freeport, Maine. Lex was entering physical therapy school to pursue her passion for health and human performance. Together they became fascinated by the role that breathing plays in health, stress management, and human performance. 

Over the next 3 years David and Lex studied with breath experts in the scientific, medical, and sport training community. Our goal was to build a simple program that provides industry leaders and their teams with a stress management and performance training toolbox like no other. 

The Breathe to Perform Program has since been shared by industry leaders in the business, educational, and athletic community.
