    I started going to Elite 2 years ago for physical therapy after having back surgery, after completing the surgery I joined the gym and met Pete. I was 30 lbs. overweight and out of shape, I worked out on my own for 8 months with limited success and severe back pain. Pete observed my struggle and suggested I begin training with a small group twice a week with him. I admitted that I had watched the group but felt that with my limitations I would not be able to participate. Pete assured me that he was well aware of my physical limitations and he would work around them. He was true to his word, in the last 8 months I have lost 22% of my body weight, my waist went from 38" to a 34" slim, I have toned my body and best of all have NO BACK PAIN. I and my physician attribute the improvement in my back to a solid, stronger core which Pete emphasizes during our work outs. I have an increased energy level and my gym routine has become a lifestyle instead of a dreaded task. Pete is the ultimate professional.

    My name is Debbie, I am fifty two years old and work as a horse trainer / riding instructor. Before working with Pete I did not enjoy going to the gym. I wasn’t sure what to do about my weight and lack of energy. I didn’t even have a goal for myself . Pete helped me make that change. Since training with Pete I have seen amazing results in the past 6 months. I have lost 35 pounds, my nutritional eating habits are better, my energy level has improved. I feel healthier and stronger. Pete is passionate about fitness and good nutrition . It shows through the energy and enthusiasm he brings to every session . He makes each workout challenging, creative and most importantly, fun! He also places a high value on correct form with each exercise. He motivates me to push past my perceived limit to get results. I have more energy, my balance and flexibility have improved immensely and got great new muscles . If you are serious about changing your life for the better Pete will lead you every step of the way.
    Thank you Pete you’re the BEST!!

    I’ve struggled with my weight for the past five years but with Pete’s expertise my life has changed for the better. I no longer look at food as comforting but as nourishment for my body. He taught me portion control and the proper balancing of fruits, vegetables and protein. Within 3 1/2 months I went from a size 16/18 to a solid size 10 with his physical training and strict meal plan. What I most appreciate about Pete is he constantly pushes you to your limits never letting you give up on yourself! He is a gentle giant that kicks butt and is highly recommended to anyone who is serious about changing their lifestyle.
