"Pete helped me refine my diet and workout routine. He is not just an instructor and coach for people who are starting from ground zero. I have been working out for over ten years and his diet and exercise consultation allowed me to get into my peak physical condition. The best thing about it was that his techniques even worked from hundreds of miles away, being that I live in Northern California while Pete's home base is in Southern California. He really knows how to provide the tools, now it's up to you to do the follow through. Pete is a great place to start!"

"Stress and poor eating habits lead me to lose a significant amount of weight and left me with no energy. Peter designed a workout routine and nutrition plan that helped me put on 15 pounds of good weight. I believe the key to my success is that Peter listened to me, understood where I was coming from, and customized a plan that was realistic for me to achieve. Thanks to Peter I have had many compliments about how I look and I feel great."

"I am a 67 year old male living in northern California. Years of working long hours and business dinners resulted in my waist growing to 44 inches and my weight ballooning to a high of 260 pounds. Although I was exercising regularly I was not able to make any significant headway. I asked Peter to help me get myself back onto a healthier trajectory. Peter gave me some advice on how to modify my exercise program and most importantly provided me with a simple nutrition program. I followed his advice closely and in little more than 6 months my weight got down to 205 pounds, I lost 8 inches on my waistline and I feel better and healthier than ever. In addition, I was able to eliminate 2 pills from my daily regimen. It wasn’t always easy but Peter supported me with sound advice and encouragement over the period. "

"I've known Pete for quite some time as a friend and through watching him transform his body and help others I knew he could do wonders for me as well. The number one thing about Pete and his gift of nutrition counseling and training is that he is very approachable and makes everyone extremely comfortable. My biggest fear was having a trainer that is in optimal shape such as Pete, judging me...and I can assure you I NEVER felt that with Pete. He was motivating and supportive and always pushed me because he knew I could do it. He believed in me and transferred that belief into how I felt about myself. His nutrition couseling along with the spreadsheet he gave me to track my meals, snacks, water consumption and work outs kept me on track and kept me motivated. No one wants to really face what they are ingesting or how little they are working out. Further, we had weigh in's every Friday morning, so needless to say I NEVER wanted my weight to have increased, so I didn't slack. We also devised a plan to have me switch what protein I chose weekly to see how my body reacted and what foods allowed me to feel my best, most energized and ready to perform at my peak. I have carried everything I learned with Pete on with me and I've never felt better. If you need help in any area, be it nutrition, losing the last few pounds, gaining muscles, leaning out or even just being more 'LifeConfident' with yourself Pete is the person I would recommend!! "
