Dr. Greg Wells Biography

At just 15, training for Canada's National Youth Swim Team in Florida, Dr. Greg Wells encountered a life-altering accident. He suffered severe injuries - multiple broken and dislocated vertebrae in my neck - while bodysurfing before a meet. Despite this, he was determined to swim competitively again.

Thanks to three months in traction, neurosurgery, and the unwavering support of my teammates, coaches, surgeons, and physiotherapists, he not only fully recovered but returned to the pool, racing at the Olympic Trials and during his university years.

Intrigued by the human body and its untapped potential, Dr. Wells pursued a career in kinesiology. He obtained a Bachelor's degree and a Master's and PhD in exercise and respiratory physiology. His knowledge deepened through post-doctoral fellowships in respiratory medicine at Sick Kids Hospital and biomedical engineering at Toronto General Hospital.

Today, as a dedicated scientist and performance physiologist, Dr. Wells channels his career into exploring the extremes of human potential and making complex scientific discoveries comprehensible and actionable. Currently, he serves as a scientist in Translational Medicine at the Hospital for Sick Children, aiming to improve the lives of children with chronic illnesses through physical activity. Dr. Wells is also proud of his academic accomplishments, which include over 60 papers published in scientific journals and more than $1 million raised for research.

Being a passionate science advocate, Dr. Wells enjoys demystifying research and making it approachable and actionable. He's been privileged to share the stage with the likes of Richard Branson, Steve Wozniak, and Deepak Chopra at events like TEDx and The Titan Summit. He has authored five best-selling books, including "Superbodies," "The Ripple Effect," "The Focus Effect," "Rest Refocus Recharge," and his latest, "Powerhouse – Protect Your Energy, Optimize Your Health & Supercharge Your Performance."

His career highlights included hosting the Gemini Award-winning Superbodies series for CTV at the 2010 and 2012 Olympics. As Director of Sport Science for the Canadian Sport Centre, his role allowed him to serve as a physiologist for more than 200 international athletes.

As the CEO and founder of Wells Performance, Dr. Wells aims to improve all aspects of our lives, whether personally or professionally. He has been honored to work with globally recognized individuals and leading organizations like General Electric, BMO, Deloitte, KPMG, BMW, Audi, YPO, and Air Canada. Additionally, he's committed to inspiring the next generation, partnering with school boards and independent schools across the globe.

Looking back, Dr. Wells sees his accident at 15 as an unexpected catalyst that inspired his research and adventures. It serves as a reminder of life's fragility, the importance of health, and the thrill of exploration. Through all his work and experiences, his mission is to encourage others to stretch their boundaries and unlock their full potential.

Speaking Topics
  • The Science and Art of Healthy High Performance: How Leaders Can Maintain Peak Performance in a World of Uncertainty and Burnout

    Sleeplessness, stress, and burnout are significant challenges that high performers must overcome, and exponential leaders must navigate for their teams. 

    This challenge is compounded by the requirement that businesses must grow and goals must be achieved. Leaders are being asked to deliver better outcomes, higher results, and more impact. This challenge is compounded by the fact that we want to do our best while we navigate an uncertain world.     We need a roadmap to help us shift from surviving to thriving. Drawing from the latest research into human physiology, Dr. Greg Wells provides audiences with a scientific but accessible path to sustainable, healthy, high performance.

    In this session, Dr. Greg outlines the Body-Mind-Life Framework that helps you enhance your physiology, optimize your psychology, and elevate you personally and professionally. He will show you simple but powerful practices to elevate your energy, shift from tension to flow, and craft high performance in the face of challenge, uncertainty, and rapid change.

    Dr. Greg shows ‘A’ Players how to amplify their abilities while avoiding fatigue and burnout.

    • How elite performers enter ‘The Zone’ and stay there despite overwhelming pressure
    • Why stress can be a powerful spark for positive mental and physical growth
    • When to use your breath for physical calm, mental clarity and enhanced energy
    • How to calm down and focus in stressful situations to enable creativity & innovation
    • The power community and the importance of building your dream team & braintrust

    This keynote or workshop is based on Dr. Wells’ best-selling book "Powerhouse: Protect Your Energy, Optimize Your Health and Supercharge Your Performance."

  • The Ripple Effect: Sleep, Eat, Move & Think To Elevate Your Health & Perform Better

    To get healthy and perform better we need to overcome 4 grand challenges that are affecting our world: lack of sleep, poor nutrition, not getting enough exercise and mental health struggles.

    Although these issues are daunting, the science is clear. We can all sleep soundly, eat smarter, move more, and think clearly. This helps us live and work smarter, not harder • even in challenging times. In this presentation, Dr. Greg Wells translates complex science into clear, actionable tactics that you can use to get healthier, improve your well-being, and perform better • at work and in your life.

    Audiences will learn how to decompress from busy days to fall asleep and stay asleep. Dr. Greg will show you how nutrition can help us recover from stress and fuel our brains. You’ll learn how movement sparks learning and creativity and how to focus your attention to overcome digital distractions.

    Most importantly, Dr. Wells will show you how seemingly small daily decisions and 1% wins can create The Ripple Effect that enhances your overall wellness and ability to perform to your true potential.

    Audiences will learn:

    • How 1% wins in habits, routines, and rituals lead to exponential results.
    • A key practice to help you to fall asleep and stay asleep.
    • The foods that improve brain function and heal us from the negative effect of stress.
    • How movement improves learning, problem solving and makes you happier.
    • Why controlling attention is the most important determinant of success in challenging situations.

    This keynote or workshop is based on Dr. Wells’ global best-selling book "The Ripple Effect."

  • Rest, Refocus, Recharge: Why Slowing Down Helps Us To Speed Up

    With so much uncertainty in our world added to pressures to achieve goals and objectives, traditional thinking is that we have to do more, more often, and it has to be done faster.

    Unfortunately, the physiology of our brain and body clearly shows that this leads to feeling overwhelmed and burned out. Organizations that use this approach see skyrocketing rates of mental health problems, absenteeism, and languishing teams.

    However, elite performers in sports, academics, and business have adopted a different approach. They have discovered that calming the mind and body unlocks abilities that are blocked by stress and pressure.

    Based on his ground-breaking book, "Rest Refocus Recharge," Dr. Wells will explain how our brains and bodies are designed to operate in cycles of work and rest and how we can harness the power of both to improve our health, well-being, and performance.

    In this session, you will discover how you can leverage the “beta” brainwave state, where you can focus and execute while shifting into the “alpha” brainwave state to facilitate strategizing and learning to help potential clients see a new path forward. Innovators can enter “theta” brainwave states to be more creative and to solve problems. Ultimately, high performers can also develop their ability to enter the zone for peak performance via “gamma” states. 

    You'll learn how to identify the five different brain states, each with a distinct function, and how to intentionally spark these states to achieve your potential.

    Drawing on the latest research in neuroscience and physiology, Dr. Wells will provide a step-by-step guide to optimizing your mental and physical health through strategic rest and recovery for you and your team.

    Audiences will learn:

    • Your brain wasn’t designed to be in constant ‘go mode’
    • Constant work undermines your ability to perform at a high level
    • Calming the mind unlocks learning and strategic thinking
    • Innovation and problem solving only happens when we slow down • a lot
    • Shifting between brain performance states elevates mental health.

    This keynote or workshop is based on Dr. Wells’ best-selling book "Rest, Refocus Recharge."

  • STEM 2.0: Sleep, Think, Eat & Move for Better Learning and Wellbeing

    Leverage sleep, nutrition, movement, and mindset to amplify learning in schools. Educators know that healthy students learn better and perform better. Research has backed this up and has demonstrated that by making small improvements in physical and mental health, students, teachers, and academic leaders can significantly improve achievement, health, and human potential.

    However, we are faced with tremendous health challenges that affect people of all ages. 20% of our population accessed the medical system last year because of a mental health-related issue. 70% of the diseases in the developed world are caused by stress. 58% of our population are overweight or obese. The World Health Organization identified physical inactivity as one of the most important global health challenges. These health issues are particularly relevant in schools and present challenges for faculty, staff, and students alike. 

    In this powerful keynote presentation or workshop, Dr. Greg Wells will show participants simple, scientific strategies that help people sleep soundly, eat smarter, move more, and think clearly to improve health and enhance learning dramatically. Drawing on his scientific research and work with elite athletes, Dr. Wells identifies how students, teachers, and leaders can perform to their potential while concurrently improving health and wellbeing.

    Students, faculty, staff, and administrators will learn:

    • How 1% wins in habits, routines and rituals lead to exponential results.
    • Why sleep is critical for learning and mental health
    • The foods that improve brain function and facilitate the creation of memories.
    • How movement improves learning, problem solving and elevates mood.
    • Why controlling attention is the most important determinant of success in challenging situations.

    This session is based on Dr. Wells’ global best-selling book "The Ripple Effect."

  • The Science and Practice of Sleeping Soundly

    Leverage sleeping better to craft sustainable health, well-being, and high performance. Dr. Greg Wells presents a clear path towards exponential health and performance in this keynote based on his international best-selling book, "The Ripple Effect." Discover how sleeping soundly more consistently can exponentially impact your overall health and performance.

    Sleep serves as a cornerstone for brain health, and healing, repairing, and regenerative functions kick into high gear during our resting hours. Quality sleep can improve cognition, learning creativity, and innovation, making sleep a core practice for all who want to improve wellbeing and sustainable performance.

    Drawing from his extensive background as a scientist and physiologist, Dr. Wells will guide you through the science of exponential sleep as it relates to health and performance, offering actionable insights and tactics you can use to optimize your well-being.

    Dr. Wells will present the 7 keys to sleeping soundly, which are practices that can be installed in everyone’s daily routines and rituals to elevate the ability to rest and recharge via consistently sound sleep.

    Audiences will learn:

    • The physiology of how the brain heals repairs and regenerates when we sleep
    • The 2 specific aspects of sleep that reduce mortality and extend lifespan
    • How much sleep we really need and when the brain is most likely to sleep deeply and soundly

    • What metrics to track when using a wearable device that tracks sleep
    • The 7 keys to sleeping soundly

    Sleeplessness, stress, and burnout are significant challenges that high performers must overcome, and exponential leaders must navigate for their teams. 

    This challenge is compounded by the requirement that businesses must grow and goals must be achieved. Leaders are being asked to deliver better outcomes, higher results, and more impact. This challenge is compounded by the fact that we want to do our best while we navigate an uncertain world.     We need a roadmap to help us shift from surviving to thriving. Drawing from the latest research into human physiology, Dr. Greg Wells provides audiences with a scientific but accessible path to sustainable, healthy, high performance.

    In this session, Dr. Greg outlines the Body-Mind-Life Framework that helps you enhance your physiology, optimize your psychology, and elevate you personally and professionally. He will show you simple but powerful practices to elevate your energy, shift from tension to flow, and craft high performance in the face of challenge, uncertainty, and rapid change.

  • The Ripple Effect: Sleep, Eat, Move & Think To Elevate Your Health & Perform Better

    To get healthy and perform better we need to overcome 4 grand challenges that are affecting our world: lack of sleep, poor nutrition, not getting enough exercise and mental health struggles.

    Although these issues are daunting, the science is clear. We can all sleep soundly, eat smarter, move more, and think clearly. This helps us live and work smarter, not harder • even in challenging times. In this presentation, Dr. Greg Wells translates complex science into clear, actionable tactics that you can use to get healthier, improve your well-being, and perform better • at work and in your life.

    Audiences will learn how to decompress from busy days to fall asleep and stay asleep. Dr. Greg will show you how nutrition can help us recover from stress and fuel our brains. You’ll learn how movement sparks learning and creativity and how to focus your attention to overcome digital distractions.

    Most importantly, Dr. Wells will show you how seemingly small daily decisions and 1% wins can create The Ripple Effect that enhances your overall wellness and ability to perform to your true potential.

    Audiences will learn:

    • How 1% wins in habits, routines, and rituals lead to exponential results.
    • A key practice to help you to fall asleep and stay asleep.
    • The foods that improve brain function and heal us from the negative effect of stress.
    • How movement improves learning, problem solving and makes you happier.
    • Why controlling attention is the most important determinant of success in challenging situations.

    This keynote or workshop is based on Dr. Wells’ global best-selling book "The Ripple Effect."

  • Rest, Refocus, Recharge: Why Slowing Down Helps Us To Speed Up

    With so much uncertainty in our world added to pressures to achieve goals and objectives, traditional thinking is that we have to do more, more often, and it has to be done faster.

    Unfortunately, the physiology of our brain and body clearly shows that this leads to feeling overwhelmed and burned out. Organizations that use this approach see skyrocketing rates of mental health problems, absenteeism, and languishing teams.

    However, elite performers in sports, academics, and business have adopted a different approach. They have discovered that calming the mind and body unlocks abilities that are blocked by stress and pressure.

    Based on his ground-breaking book, "Rest Refocus Recharge," Dr. Wells will explain how our brains and bodies are designed to operate in cycles of work and rest and how we can harness the power of both to improve our health, well-being, and performance.

    In this session, you will discover how you can leverage the “beta” brainwave state, where you can focus and execute while shifting into the “alpha” brainwave state to facilitate strategizing and learning to help potential clients see a new path forward. Innovators can enter “theta” brainwave states to be more creative and to solve problems. Ultimately, high performers can also develop their ability to enter the zone for peak performance via “gamma” states. 

    You'll learn how to identify the five different brain states, each with a distinct function, and how to intentionally spark these states to achieve your potential.

    Drawing on the latest research in neuroscience and physiology, Dr. Wells will provide a step-by-step guide to optimizing your mental and physical health through strategic rest and recovery for you and your team.

    Audiences will learn:

    • Your brain wasn’t designed to be in constant ‘go mode’
    • Constant work undermines your ability to perform at a high level
    • Calming the mind unlocks learning and strategic thinking
    • Innovation and problem solving only happens when we slow down • a lot
    • Shifting between brain performance states elevates mental health.

    This keynote or workshop is based on Dr. Wells’ best-selling book "Rest, Refocus Recharge."

  • STEM 2.0: Sleep, Think, Eat & Move for Better Learning and Wellbeing

    Leverage sleep, nutrition, movement, and mindset to amplify learning in schools. Educators know that healthy students learn better and perform better. Research has backed this up and has demonstrated that by making small improvements in physical and mental health, students, teachers, and academic leaders can significantly improve achievement, health, and human potential.

    However, we are faced with tremendous health challenges that affect people of all ages. 20% of our population accessed the medical system last year because of a mental health-related issue. 70% of the diseases in the developed world are caused by stress. 58% of our population are overweight or obese. The World Health Organization identified physical inactivity as one of the most important global health challenges. These health issues are particularly relevant in schools and present challenges for faculty, staff, and students alike. 

    In this powerful keynote presentation or workshop, Dr. Greg Wells will show participants simple, scientific strategies that help people sleep soundly, eat smarter, move more, and think clearly to improve health and enhance learning dramatically. Drawing on his scientific research and work with elite athletes, Dr. Wells identifies how students, teachers, and leaders can perform to their potential while concurrently improving health and wellbeing.

    Students, faculty, staff, and administrators will learn:

    • How 1% wins in habits, routines and rituals lead to exponential results.
    • Why sleep is critical for learning and mental health
    • The foods that improve brain function and facilitate the creation of memories.
    • How movement improves learning, problem solving and elevates mood.
    • Why controlling attention is the most important determinant of success in challenging situations.

    This session is based on Dr. Wells’ global best-selling book "The Ripple Effect."

  • The Science and Practice of Sleeping Soundly

    Leverage sleeping better to craft sustainable health, well-being, and high performance. Dr. Greg Wells presents a clear path towards exponential health and performance in this keynote based on his international best-selling book, "The Ripple Effect." Discover how sleeping soundly more consistently can exponentially impact your overall health and performance.

    Sleep serves as a cornerstone for brain health, and healing, repairing, and regenerative functions kick into high gear during our resting hours. Quality sleep can improve cognition, learning creativity, and innovation, making sleep a core practice for all who want to improve wellbeing and sustainable performance.

    Drawing from his extensive background as a scientist and physiologist, Dr. Wells will guide you through the science of exponential sleep as it relates to health and performance, offering actionable insights and tactics you can use to optimize your well-being.

    Dr. Wells will present the 7 keys to sleeping soundly, which are practices that can be installed in everyone’s daily routines and rituals to elevate the ability to rest and recharge via consistently sound sleep.
