Troy Pesola

I am an eclectic mash-up of personalities. Some call me insane, but none call me boring. I am an electrical engineer and computer science tech-head who has built lasers and robotics. That era even produced a few patents with my name on them. Fun fact, but they didn’t make me any money. I’m a business coach and process wonk who is continually striving for more efficiency. I’m a marketeer and an apple fan-boi. And I’m a fitness nut staying in shape even while working at a sedentary job. My career has spanned multiple disciplines and various industries. It is no surprise that one of my top strengths is LEARNER.Like 70% of our population my career has me trapped in a cubicle. That career choice has forced me to get creative and focused about fitness. When I think back I’ve had access to a gym since early high school, where you could have found me pumpin’ out reps on some old-school Nautilus machines. I was a hockey player. Note I said, “hockey PLAYER”. I have never enjoyed watching sports. The one exception is MMA. I can’t explain it. Expose me to MMA and I become like a bug-to-a-light. I’m mesmerized and sucked in. My explanation is MMA fighters must be in phenomenal physical condition to survive. I find them inspiring, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.I love trying new things, things like a 24 hour mountain bike race, running The Incline, or attempting to teach myself how to surf at high-tide in Costa Rica. My latest fitness passion is shreddin’ the back country at Keystone Resort.Happily married for more than 20 years. We now find ourselves parents of two college-age kids. That means my wife and I are enjoying much more time together. Time that allows us to explore the Colorado Rockies. My most troublesome weakness is... chocolate, ice cream, or a free pour almond cappuccino. Or any combination of them. Oh, yes and “movie candy”- how can anyone watch a movie without a $1 package of “carbs in a box”?I'm looking forward to learning more about... living life to the fullest. Too often I hear people realize that life has slipped past them. They’ve gotten out of shape and are unable to enjoy the possibilities life tosses at their feet. Each day we can learn a bit more that unlocks our own potential to live life to the fullest.
