Want to learn how to sleep like a Navy SEAL? Learn the secrets of how elite athletes, military members and high performers do their best work … while totally zonked! Join Dr. Jockers as he interviews Dr. Kirk Parsley, one of the world’s foremost experts on sleep medicine. A former SEAL and Naval Special Operations medical officer, Dr. Parsley lectures and consults worldwide for athletic and corporate organizations, and shares his secrets in his bestselling book, Sleep to Win.


“In your deep sleep, you have zero stress hormones. Your immune system’s at its highest. You’re repairing all the tissue damage. Your anabolic hormones are surging. Your catabolic hormones are getting processed. You’re fighting off infections. You’re digesting, your brain is improving, categorizing emotions, comparing and learning. Then you wake up, the most capable you’re ever going to be. Once you’re well-rested, that’s when you’re the best at everything.” – Dr. Kirk Parsley
