Peter is well known among elite strength athletes. He has been included in books such as I Will Be Iron and Super Vitality by the world’s strongest man, Bud Jeffries, as well as Strength and Conditioning Secrets of the World’s Greatest Fighters by former U.S. Olympic judo coach and president of Shingitai Jujitsu John Saylor.

It is what he has become that draws so many of us to him. His kindness, his poetic expressions and meditative reflections, and his love of quietude speak to our hearts and awaken a longing to fully open to what he has found. He spends his days with his wife Katrina on their secluded farm, along with six dogs and three cats. He prefers simplicity and serenity to the spotlight, but also realizes his responsibility to share the message of compassion, tolerance, and spiritual awakening with others.
