Meet Your Hosts

Rob Pallante

Rob grew up playing sports. His success playing hockey led to a scholarship and a spot in the minor pro leagues. In 2015 Rob was involved in a near-death motorcycle accident that landed him in the hospital for over a month. Although terrible, the crash reminded him of how important resiliency, mental toughness, and one’s mindset are. Rob founded Mindset Body Bank to inspire athletes and help them develop the mindset needed for success. Rob will co-host the Life Through Hockey Virtual Summit.
