About Petros

Petros began his career in Personal Training during college working for Equinox and later moving to the University of Pennsylvania. While getting his degree in Health Sciences from Drexel University, Petros took note of his passion of truly helping people, whether it was in reaching their fitness goals or helping them overcome an injury. Once his tenure at UPenn was over, he moved onto working in injury, post-op and sports rehabilitation at NY Rehab and then after at STARS (Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation Services) at North Shore LIJ in East Meadow, NY.

Through his various experiences Petros took note that many people always found an excuse as to why they were not able to get to the gym, whether it was the time, the cost, the inconvenience. He decided that this audience is what he wanted to pursue and with that he began "Workout Anywhere", helping to deliver the gym to people at a time and place that is convenient to them.

Today, Petros has a plethora of clients who's needs range from weight loss to weight gain, to rehabilitation and marathon training. He has trained his clients anywhere ranging from his home gym, to their office, to the local park and beach. His clients enjoy his workouts not only because of the convenience of bringing the gym to them, but also because of Petros' dedication in ensuring that every workout has been created for them and their needs.

Very professional and knowledgeable. Don’t let the nice guy appearance fool you though, he’s gonna make you WORK! Awesome trainer!

Peter is an awesome trainer. He is very knowledgeable as well as very well equipped. He pays great attention to your concerns about your body and health and draws out a workout routine accordingly. He's also very accommodating. I have had a few sessions with him already and the best part about his sessions are that each session is very different. We try new techniques and methods. He makes every session very interesting & fun. I am looking forward to the rest of my sessions. :)

Tina K.

Pete is an awesome trainer! Been my trainer for over 6 months and he hasn't repeated a workout routine. Always coming up with new exercises based on your restrictions, activities that you actually like to do (kick boxing, weight lifting, spin, circuit training, etc), and most importantly your goals. Really takes the time to make sure your getting a great workout to achieve the results you want. Whatever your goals are Pete will help get you there!

Amanda M.

Petros (Peter) is very knowledgeable. Easy to work with and understanding as well as respectful. He can most definitely help you reach your goals. If you are looking to lose weight and tone up he is definitely your guy. Don't skip out on the stretches either!! Keeps you healthy and feeling better!

Robert D.

I used to dread working out. Now I forget that I am. I feel so much better and have so much energy. Peter is very knowledgeable he knows what works but most importantly he knows why it works. I truly think that his understanding of the body and exercise helps him to really help his clients.

Linda V.

I had the opportunity of working with Peter for 4 weeks. Peter is very knowledgeable and took the time out to get to know my goals. He was flexible with scheduling and easy to work with. I am looking forward to working with him again.

Amanda C.

Peter has a great personality and is very experienced. He tailors the workouts and gets feedback as he goes along so that the workout is very targeted.

Alene S.

Peter is awesome! He works really hard to find any way to motivate me and find different exercises to keep me moving. He is fun, he gives me dieting tips, and it is awesome to be able to work out doing different things other than only working out in the gym. For me, having the commitment not only to myself (which usually fails) but, to my trainer, keeps me working hard between sessions. He never gets disappointed even if I cheat a little. He is always encouraging and pushes me to the max. Peter is really awesome!

Samara R.

After interviewing other candidates, I chose Peter because he was exactly what I was looking for. Peter has helped me to lose weight, body fat % and keep me extremely motivated. He has also provided some great advice when it comes to foods and diet. I'm so happy with my choice as well as the results and wouldn't go anywhere else, thanks Peter!

Debra R.

Petere has met every expectation. He is reliable, motivating, experienced and very easy to work with!

Vinnie A.

I recently stared with Peter and I thrilled with him. He is always punctual, totally reliable, comes completely ready with everything needed and has already figured out what we will be doing that day--a total professional. And, he makes the workout really fun--so much so that I genuinely look forward to his arrival and working out with him--and I am not the kind of guy who likes to work out!! I recommend him to you without reservation--he is really special and I could not be more pleased.

David L.

A truly outstanding personal trainer in every respect. He goes above and beyond to ensure that I achieve my goals. When I wake up in the morning and look at myself in the mirror, I can't believe I had this six pack under all that fat!

Andrew H.

Peter, my personal trainer, is a stand up person with a great personality. He is very flexible with scheduling. He is also educated in dealing with clients with injury and medical issues. Besides his experience as a trainer, Peter has a background education in the health sciences and has worked as a Physical Therapy assistant. Peter helped me get out of my cancer treatment slump and trained me with an injured shoulder. Over four months I lost 14 pounds and gained back the energy and strength I lost during chemo and radiation therapy. I am back in shape again and have Peter to thank for this. I come to his home to train where he has a very well equipped gym but he will also come to you to train you. He travels from eastern Long Island to Queens. I am very pleased with my results so far and I really like Peter as a person. GO FOR IT!

Donna K.

I have been working with Peter for a year. He is a terrific trainer. He takes the time to prepare my workouts and is flexible working around any discomforts or ailments I may experience. He never rushes through our routine and shows me the correct way exercises are to be done. It obvious that fitness is his profession and his passion. He always encourages me as he conducts an effective and fun workout. Thanks Peter - you are the best & I enjoy our workout sessions!

Ellen M.

I've trained with Peter and I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience as well as his workouts. He's an excellent trainer, and nothing short of professional in his craft. From the first day Peter has made me feel comfortable and has really helped me achieve my fitness goals. I would highly recommend using Peter, big thanks!

Nicholas F.

Really great trainer. Easy going but makes you work. Good direction on the exercise he wants you to do.

Caroline R.

I have been training virtually with Petros for around 6 months now. I have to say that choosing him to be my personal trainer was one of the best decisions I have ever made for myself. These past few months, my body has changed in drastic ways and I am feeling the best I ever have in my life. I feel so much stronger and everyday things have become easier. I have successfully lost over 20 pounds and am still currently on my weight loss journey today. I have to say that I couldn’t have done it without Petros. He makes sure to give you challenging workouts that are tailored specifically to you and your needs. He honestly listens to your feedback after each workout and I respect him for going that extra step to ensure you are moving towards your own goals, whatever they may look like for you. He is very knowledgeable and you can tell that he knows what he is talking about and that he is passionate about his work. He is always willing to demonstrate and explain the exercises and the reasons why they would be beneficial for you, and that really helps to remind me that all of the hard work I am putting in will be worth it. He acts as if he is your biggest fan and it really helps you on this type of physical and mental journey. It is comforting to have someone who is a constant and who is always pushing you to become the best version of yourself. He is a charming and personable person who makes for good company while you workout. He has a great personality and so it makes your sessions with him that much more enjoyable, it is like you are talking with a friend while you crush a workout. He communicates well with his clients and is pretty flexible when it comes to scheduling. I am grateful for that because life can change in a minute and he understands that. He is a human, just like the rest of us, and he has a good heart. He genuinely cares for all of his clients and makes it a priority that we are getting the optimal experience possible and that, to me, speaks volumes.

Julie B.

Been training for over a year now. One of the best trainers I have ever worked with. I used to train multiple days a week for tennis, made the switch to weight lifting and I couldn't be happier.

Joseph C.

Peter is a most knowledgeable and professional personal trainer understanding your goals and needs and then tailoring them to his fitness sessions with up to date proper equipment and exercises. He is always concerned about your safety and well being during and after the sessions. Very personable and passionate about his profession and his clients . Highly recommend, he has been my trainer for the past 5 years .

Gus K.

Pete is a great trainer. He makes a custom plan for you depending on your goals and works with you to reach them. I personally have issues with my neck and back but didn't worry about getting hurt because of certain stretches that were put into my routine. If you're looking for a customized plan with great results I would have to recommend trying one of his workouts

Tom R.

Petros was a great trainer. I strongly recommend him.
