Peter De Silva
Managerial consultant, CFPT & Strength Coach
Peter’s passion for fitness and resistance training began at an early age. Being one of the smallest kids in his classes, he was teased and bullied. Peter received his first set of dumbbells at the age of 10. Peter quickly realized weight training was a great way to gain strength, boost his self-confidence and to challenge himself. When Peter entered middle school he began running track and wrestling. With the support of great coaches, he excelled at both sports and consequently came to understand the importance of sport specific training.
In late 2014 Peter became certified as a personal trainer. He then completed a strength coach mentorship program under Elite Trainer and Strength Coach, Al Mursalin thus turning his passion into a career. Peter continues to learn under the guidance of Coach Mursalin and to educate himself in all areas of the fitness industry.
