Featuring Peter Twist

Quarterback Your Own Health (Part 1)

Man, oh man…I’m so excited to share my guest with you today. I have fitness-industry icon Peter Twist on the show and you are in for a real treat. I’ve known “Twister” for 25 years and he is a legend in the field of training & sports coaching. Peter has been awarded 13 industry awards and is recognized as one of the top leaders and entrepreneurs worldwide in fitness and coaching.

“Twister” is a force of nature, and in this part 1 of a 2-part series, he shares his story on how he overcame a stage-4 cancer diagnosis and how he shifted from angry, scared, and alone to be determined to take his health literally into his own hands. Peter shares what got him through the battle and his fight for life, how he got his mind right during the fight, and how you must quarterback your own health every day to maximize your energy, vitality, focus, and quality of life.

This episode is a must-listen-to for any parents, kids, entrepreneurs, or high performers looking to be their very best! Please also share it with your community and on your social media and be sure to tag Pete and me so we can reciprocate some love!
