About Coach

Hi, my name is Pete. Like a lot of people that find CrossFit, I was very athletic and involved in sports when I was younger but then didn't make fitness a priority in my 20's. I had played soccer starting at age 6 thru High School and also played on competitive club teams here in Watsonville. When I decided to "get back in shape" I had heard about CrossFit and gave it a shot. It was everything I was looking for and more. I started CF in 2011 in Santa Cruz but switched to CF Watsonville when it opened and have been here almost every day since day one. I also train for and have completed over 50 GORUCK endurance events and train others for these types of events thru our GORUCK Training Partner program. I enjoy coaching other athletes and find it very rewarding when someone comes up to me after a class and thanks me for helping them in some way, whether it was a cue I gave them that helped them move better or motivating them through a tough workout and showing them that they are capable of so much more than they think.
