Bio

Peter began his career with us as an On-call Exercise Specialist at an entertainment company in Los Angeles. He proved to be successful on his very first day of work, when, after he helped a member with some kettlebell exercises, she proceeded to purchase a training package. A full-time position opened up several months later, allowing Peter to join the team as a full-time Exercise Specialist and Director of Personal Training.

As the client’s personal training program grew, the Director of Physical Activity encouraged Peter to apply for the Assistant Manager/Director of Personal Training position at a biopharma company in Southern California. He joined this large team in 2012, and went on to grow their personal training department by 40%. In 2016, Peter took on the additional responsibility of Associate Director of Physical Activity, a role in which he worked closely with the Director of Physical Activity to assist other sites in growing their own personal training departments.
