Growing up as an athlete, author Clark Hamilton Depue developed a passion for playing, competing, and moving his body. As a competitive junior tennis player, he experienced his greatest moments on the court only when he improved his inner game first. Off the court, his greatest challenge in life was simply being happy, and for years, he never knew joy or a sense of well-being—until he discovered meditation. He started practicing little meditative techniques in his daily workouts to help open his heart and cultivate a feeling of strength and higher energy.
After tennis, he became a golf professional, teaching thousands of students before dedicating five years to a psychology-based personal development training.
He is currently a CrossFit athlete and coach in Dallas, Texas, where he lives with his dogs, Allie and Stella. He spent the last three years writing and producing his first book, Meditative Fitness: The Art and Practice of the Workout.
