Creating a multi-million dollar business
Pete developed a simple rotational training product into a successful business called RIPCORE-FX. His business was acquired by functional training juggernauts TRX, and the TRX Rip Trainer was spawned. The product has grossed over $23 million in sales and continues to be a leading rotational training modality used by athletes, coaches and trainers worldwide.
Pete’s dedication to advancing the fitness industry and his entrepreneurial spirit has inspired him to create multiple products that impact fitness enthusiasts and athletes worldwide. His first product, The Functional Training Rack, was licensed to Perform Better in 2008 and inspired “hoop” platforms for current stability ball rack designs. His second product, the RIPCORE-FX, was acquired by TRX and is now referred to as the TRX Rip Trainer. The Rip Trainer has grossed over $20 million in worldwide sales and continues to be a leading rotational training modality used by athletes such as Steph Curry, Phil Mickelson and Drew Brees. His latest product, a plate loaded Hip Thrust machine called the Glute Drive, was licensed to Nautilus and is currently their number one selling commercial strength product, selling over 2000 units in its first year.
Pete recently authored his first book, a fictional piece called CRUZ, published by Scriptor publishing. The book is an homage to athletic development, coaching, mentorship and the underdog in us all.
Finally, Pete has a background in competitive athletics. Although he dreamt of being a professional ski racer growing up in the Rocky Mountains, he found his passion in TaeKwon-Do. After only two and a half years training Pete qualified for the US National Team and represented the United States at the ITF World Championships in Kuala Terengganu Malaysia, in 1994. Three years later he won his first national championship in three divisions (sparring, power breaking and patterns) and was selected as team captain for the 1997 ITF World Championships in St. Petersburg Russia. With a tireless work ethic to help evolve the health and fitness industry through product innovation, presenting, mentorship, content development and one-on-one care, Pete’s sole mission is to help others actualize their full potential in health, fitness and life.
