“Confronting the Daily Challenges of Business”
Chief Earthly Officer
PJ is a husband, father, private pilot, patriot, author, research nerd, blogger, and Christian businessman.
His current assignment is as Chief Earthly Officer of the X Gym, working for the owner – his Heavenly Father, striving to be a Kingdom light to the world of health and fitness by doing business based on the principles of Jesus Christ.
PJ started personal training in 1987, and grew his business successfully for the following 11 years, training clients out of their homes and local gyms. Using the latest research studies and his clients’ help as “test subjects,” PJ invented his “multi-method” concept and refined it through 1998 when, having become too busy, thanks to God’s blessings, had to scale himself through opening 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, 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 three 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 on Amazon. Another book he co-authored, What You Need to Know About Muscle Building: 10 Top Trainers Q&A Sessions is also available on Amazon.
PJ’s main work is his own book, Cracking Your Calorie Code also on Amazon.com. This work is a brain dump of PJ’s learnings over the years, through his extensive research and experience in the fields of exercise science, nutrition science, and brain science.
He has also developed a phone app with his methods and exercises to help people all over the world; has developed a Brain Type Test, which helps people discover their unique tips, tricks, and hacks, to achieve better fitness and health faster and easier; and has been selected as one of the top fitness bloggers by several different rating sites. He continues to create free content for people through his various blogs and YouTube channels.
Some of PJ’s other interests include God, his wife, and (grown) kids, flying float planes as a private pilot, inventing healthy recipes, and tinkering with off-grid living at his Eastern Washington mountain property.
He has a B.S. in Exercise Science, (1989) Seattle Pacific University; CSCS (Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist), 1996 NSCA; CPR; AED; First Aid.
Anyone who has major responsibility for a business knows that the last few years have been challenging. In addition to managing through the Pandemic, everyone including businesses has had to learn to adapt to the changing world or die. PJ’s story of his own path through this jungle can give hope to others in business whether as an owner, a leader, or a worker. He will tell us about a 4-step process he uses when he encounters a new situation (learned from George Toles):
1. Thank you Lord.
2. I trust you Lord.
3. What does this mean?
4. What should I do?
