Pete Roulet

Head Coach

What year did you start CrossFitting?

2009

Why did you get into fitness (and CrossFit)?

I’m an active person naturally, more correctly stated I can’t sit still very long. I love/need to go do, see and try physical tasks, so fitness for me personally is a requirement. As time went on I spent a lot of time learning how to be fit both physically and mentally (don’t think they are separate or unequal, balance between the two is key, luckily one usually improves the other). Now because of my thirst for knowledge and the incites I gained my daily role is I get to share with others and help them improve their lives.

Why did you become a coach?

To help people improve their lives. Education and accountability are big keys to success, my goal and role is to do both of those while instilling motivation plus giving people a fun time in the process.

What’s your favorite CrossFit movement?

Deadlift, Sprint, Pull-up and Squats (sorry just one isn’t enough, that’s why I CrossFit)

A whole pizza with a bucket of coke and probably something chocolate after.

Why did you get into fitness (and CrossFit)?

My college water polo coach introduced the team to CrossFit back in 2007 and it changed my perspective on health & fitness.
