A CHAT WITH PETE
We sit down with Pete for a quick chat about personal drive, experience and change >
Q: HOW LONG HAVE YOU WORKED AS A TRAINER?
PG: I have been a fitness trainer for over 20 years now and in that time I have had the opportunity and honor of training Royalty, Celebrities, the Weekend Warriors and Homemakers. It has been a personal mission to be able to positively change people’s lives for the better by helping them become the best possible versions of themselves.
Q: HOW DID YOU START TRAINING ACTORS, SINGERS AND OTHER CELEBRITY PERSONALITIES?
PG: Like my Mother always said, I seemed to be in the right place at the right time. I have never consciously pursued celebrities to train since my sole priority is to train any individual who really wants to better themselves regardless if they are famous or not. I have been fortunate in that the establishments that I have been associated with were of such high caliber that celebrities felt they could be themselves and train without worry of being harassed.
Q:WHO HAVE YOU TRAINED?
PG: I have been very lucky in that I have trained such a diversity of people and personalities. In the entertainment industry, I have had the pleasure of working with Directors Bryan Singer and Stephan Elliott; Actors Kim Cattrall, Eddie Izzard and David Hasslehoff; Singers Adele, Jimmy Barnes and Mica Paris; and public figure Pippa Middleton.
However, it’s not about celebrity and high profile clients for me. I strive to help as many people as possible to reach their goals. It’s the selflessly dedicated homemaker, the tirelessly hardworking business owner and the weekend warrior athletes that occupy the majority of my time. I take great pride when I see them all succeed.
Q:HOW HAS YOUR BUSINESS CHANGED OVER THE PAST 5 YEARS?
PG: My business has changed incredibly. The past five years has seen me work with some incredible individuals that have taken me to some amazing places around the world. I have been very fortunate that my client list has grown at a very healthy rate and has afforded me many opportunities to pursue side projects in the health and fitness industry. I am humbled by the wonderful experiences that I have had and it has only given me more motivation and determination to push the bar higher in terms of providing service to my current clientele and future prospects. As my Mother would say….. STAY TUNED!
