Pete reached the highest level in football, getting paid to play, training hard by himself and following workout programs he adopted from each level in which he played.
In total, Pete played 5 years in the Arena Football League, a stint in an NFL camp with the Dallas Cowboys in 1997 and the XFL in 2001. Pete worked hard improving and maintaining his strength, speed and agility during his playing days and diligently recovered from several serious injuries during his career including an ACL reconstruction and Lis Franc fracture of his left foot. The ideology of Good Energy is a compilation of Pete’s experiences in weight rooms, on tracks and training rooms over the last 20 years. His training style is that of a professional Strength & Conditioning Coach with attention to detail, positive reinforcement and a mentality that training safely and intensely is more important than how much weight you are pushing!
