'Shining Star'

Coach Peter Twist has been a shining star, mentor and beacon of positive energy for many. As a sport scientist, academic researcher, a coach to professional and everyday athletes, an author and subject matter expert who has tirelessly shared his knowledge around the globe, TWIST and Peter Twist helped shape our fitness industry for the past 25 years. He is an entrepreneur, industry disruptor and contrarian. When everyone else is zigging, Twister is almost always ZAGGING. Topping the list of his leadership traits are his boldness to blaze unique paths and his generous spirit. Once he does the heavy lifting and clears the way, he circles back to the trailhead and pulls others along with him. He is a builder of bridges and a true visionary, profoundly impacting IDEA’s path and that of countless fitness professionals, clients and athletes.

Always Inspiring and Educational!

Peter! Love your workshops and courses. Inspiring, educational and fuelled by your trademark “you can do anything you put your mind to” positive attitude! You’re amazing and I’m with you on the 2022 “fresh start, bright days ahead” program! PS It’ll be 38 years for Sweat Co. this February!

You Changed My Life

Your approach and teachings fueled my career with a fire that I needed. Fast forward 13 years, I own my own facility and I work 12+ hours each day with a smile on my face and a grateful heart. I love what I do and my clients love their workouts. Twister, you changed my life.

The Heart and Science of Fitness

More in a "big picture" way, I have started to use the term "the heart and science of fitness" to describe what I do. And that comes, in large part, from you. The winning combination of challenging fitness, deep thinking, and a tender soul that you live by first rang true for me the first time I heard you say "Today I will give everything I have. What I keep inside I will lose forever." It made the hair on the back of my neck stand up - in a good way.

Peter Twist's education was invaluable. It helped me grow into the trainer and business owner I am today. Training some of the best hockey athletes, one then an Olympic MVP, is the best reward possible. You and Dr. Anderson’s knowledge and guidance CANNOT GO UNNOTICED. Thank you for your mentorship starting out. Your success has just started my friend. And with your certifications and mentoring, so is mine!!

So Grateful

Peter, you...YOU are responsible for the way I teach EVERYTHING. I thought I knew 'stuff' until I walked into your session, by accident (it was fate), at CanFitPro that year. I had my eyes opened that day and have strived to improve the functional lives of my clients. None of them are training for marathons, but they are ALL training for quality of life, and you taught me that. Thank you for TWIST Certifications! I am grateful beyond words, to you, for your knowledge, your kindness and your friendship. Here's to new beginnings Coach. With much love and gratitude...xo

You Actually SHARE!!

You Are My Yoda

Like many a personal trainer, I first encountered your techniques through doing an ACE Functional specialty in my continuing education. I have continued to seek out your courses and videos and I still constantly employ your approaches throughout my work with clients today— fascial line training, multi joint and multi planar movement, instability and Bosu balance work, the list goes on. Professionally I view you the way a rank and file Jedi would view Yoda— a Master of Masters. And the essential gentleness and decency of your personality shines through in your writings and thoughts. Can’t wait to see what you do next. And cheers to Bruno— a very good boy!

Kenneth Michael Clair


I have taken so many of your courses and lectures I cannot remember them all but TWIST UNIVERSITY courses on Sport Strength and Sport Balance teachings have stayed in my toolbox forever! I have integrated your training techniques into each program and into my everyday workouts, more than that, my life of movement! I think of you as my Fitness and Movement Guru and can’t imagine what the “Training World” would be like without your teachings and philosophy. Looking forward to your next chapter! and more of Bruno too.
