We asked Peter a few questions to learn how he stays healthy and positive while travelling.
Q: Have you always been active?
A: “I’ve been an athlete my entire life. Even as I‘ve made the transition to competitive athlete to the entertainment industry, I still train and think like an athlete.”
Q: Any tips for staying active always on-the-go?
A: “The key to staying healthy and active, is finding activities and workouts you enjoy doing. I personally (as mentioned before) enjoy doing all sorts of different types of workouts, so I encourage others to find things they enjoy. It doesn’t have to be in a gym. It can be things like; running, dancing, playing a sport, hiking, snowboarding, boxing, the best workout to do, is the one people will actually do.”
Q: Can you tell us about a struggle you’ve overcome?
A: “My dad was very abusive both physically and emotionally, when I was growing up, so I’ve been overcoming struggle my entire life. I grew up amongst gang and drug violence. My mom died when I was 20, and my dad ended up going to prison for drugs. My entire life has been a struggle, and I’m still standing.”
Q: What is your favourite PERFORMA product?
A: “I’m a big fan of the superhero shaker cups, because deep down I like to think I’m a superhero, and it’s my dream to one day play a superhero (or villain) in screen. I love the new towels too, they are the best workout towels on the market. I use them in hot yoga, when I’m drenched in sweat, and they just absorb everything.”
Q: What do you want to be remembered for?
A: “When I die, I want people to remember me as the guy who made people laugh, but who also inspired them to be the best, healthiest and fittest versions of themselves.”
Q: What’s coming up for you in 2020?
A: “As far as shows coming up, I’m ALWAYS touring, but, I have something BIG planned for 2020! I’ll be visiting EVERY MLB Ballpark next season, and I’m doing shows in each city, while I’m there. It’s called the “A League Of My Own Tour,” 30 cities, and I’m so excited! It’s a dream come true for me. So starting in April-September, look for me to be performing in an MLB city near you. (I’ll also be in other cities too, but I could REALLY use the support in the MLB cities).”
