Education and Certifications: B.S. in Science, (1989) Seattle Pacific University; CSCS (Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist), 1996 NSCA; CPR; AED; First Aid.
Experience: PJ started personal training in 1987, and grew his business successfully for the following 11 years, training clients out of their homes and local area gyms. With these clients’ help as test subjects, PJ invented his “multi-protocol” concept and refined it through 1998 when he formally introduced it to the X Gym.
PJ still spends hours each week studying the current research to further improve the X Gym methods. He has been a guest expert on TV, serves often as a keynote speaker, conducts regular workshops and seminars, has hosted his own call-in talk show on KKOL and KVI radio and has authored many works including local and national media articles and two books on health and fitness.
His co-author contribution to the book 101 Great Ways to Improve Your Health helped make it a best seller. Another book he co-authored, “What You Need to Know About Muscle Building: 10 Top Trainers Q & A Sessions,” is another success.
PJ’s main work is his own book, “Cracking Your Calorie Code” which is also selling strong on Amazon.com, or through his own book site at www.crackingyourcode.com. This book is a brain dump of most of what PJ has learned over the years, through the extensive research he has done in the fields of exercise science, nutrition science and brain science.
PJ’s workout DVD, “X Gym Workout Protocol #1” is also a hot seller, designed to introduce non-X Gym clients to the unique concepts he has developed.
PJ has been selected as one of the top fitness bloggers by several different rating sites. He continues to create free content for people through this blog, his partner blog and his various X Gym blogs.
Some of PJ’s other interests include God, his two teenagers, flying float planes as a private pilot, inventing healthy recipes that taste amazing, and competing in stair climb races, called tower running, one of the most grueling sports on the planet. He proves his own exercise methods’ effectiveness by getting faster and stronger each year, despite exercising less than an hour per week! In 2008 at age 42, PJ placed in the top 200 stair climbers in the world. In 2009, he broke the top 100. In 2010, he made the top 40, then the top 30 in 2011 and still continues to get faster each year. PJ is also a world record holder along with his other 3 team mates, where they climbed 123,480 steps, 76,440 vertical feet and 5,880 floors in 24 hours (more details on facebook.com/EpicClimb).
