Inspiring and grounding at the same time

I really enjoy Peter's calm confidence. It's inspiring to slow down and learn from his experience. I can't wait to hear future episodes.

Pete is all you need!

I have been working with Pete for over 10 years and he is absolutely incredible! He is always in touch with his mind and his body and has helped me learn what it means to be a life athlete! When I heard he was starting a podcast I was ecstatic! You NEED to check out his book as well "The Way of the Life Athlete"
