Many of us try to take part in several activities per season since we live in this beautiful place, it can be frustrating to progress in all of them, and is hard on the body. We can help you become more durable & active in the Jackson community.
Focusing on corrective musculoskeletal exercises, AIS (Active Isolated Stretching), balance training, and HIIT circuits all are implemented in the programming at Gym 22. Proper biomechanics, posture and mobility are pressed everyday in our sessions.
Living in Wyoming, we love living a very free life and are passionate about the outdoors. The longer we can practice SAFE training techniques that do not push our own physical limitations outside of our skeletal and natural limitations, the longer we may be able to continue enjoying life in Wyoming.
Pete was born and raised in Jackson and grew up enjoying just about every activity that this amazing community and area have to offer. With a very early interest in hockey, snowboarding, mountain biking, and skateboarding, Pete strove to excel at these leading to a deep-seeded passion for the workings, limitations, and capabilities of the human body.
Deciding in 2011 to pursue a career in health and wellness, Pete began managing a local fitness facility which cultivated his decision to become a personal trainer and strength and conditioning coach. Since becoming an American Council on Exercise CPT in early 2014 Pete has joined the Gym 22 team and has dedicated himself to apply his knowledge to furthering his athletes' awareness and capabilities of their own bodies.
"My ultimate goal and driving force in regards to training athletes is to ensure that when they go out into the mountains, out on the river, out on the ice, they are absolutely as prepared, strong, durable, and as aware of themselves as they possibly can be. I want my athletes to always be able to put their best foot forward and put forth a superior effort, at less than a moment's notice because in real life situations the ability to do so just might save your life."
A native of Jackson, Andrew has finally made his way back to Wyoming after 20 years. Exercise, health, and wellness have always been a huge passion in Andrew’s life. He graduated with honors from the University of Wisconsin system with a degree in biomedicine and chemistry. With medical school on the horizon, Andrew wanted to spend some extra time to focus his views on medicine. “I feel there is great power in nutrition and exercise; these two elements have the ability to affect all aspects of our lives. We need to be prescribing proper diet and fitness instead of pills and medications.”
Training and coaching athletes to better themselves has always brought Andrew enjoyment and satisfaction. He believes a safe and regular training regimen can be the key to healthy and happy lifestyle.
