Schlesinger is finishing his second season in the NBA working as the Director of Performance /Head Strength and Conditioning Coach for the Phoenix Suns.


Prior to the league, he was the Director of Basketball Performance at Stanford University. In his time on The Farm, he has revolutionized in-season strength training for collegiate student-athletes, with a method that is now internationally recognized. He has been a chosen presenter on both the national and international stage, sharing his philosophy in strength training to other experts and colleagues in the field. He is continuously sharing his knowledge and experience on multiple platforms, including podcasts, satellite radio, and several public speaking engagements.


Prior to joining the staff at Stanford, Schlesinger spent three years as the Director of Basketball Performance at UAB, two years as the Director of Strength and Conditioning at Santa Clara University, and two years as an Assistant at Campbell University.
