Certified Personal Trainer / Head Trainer of Delay the Disease Program / Certified Executive Coach / Certified Practitioner of Positive Psychology
Pete Kunk is a competitor, shaped by sports and a life-long pursuit of leadership excellence.
He grew up in Springfield, Ohio, and attended the University of Kentucky on a football scholarship.
His spirit of excellence carried over from the ball field to the business world, where Pete honed his leadership development and team-building skills over a thirty-year period, while teaching, coaching, and consulting for the Dale Carnegie Corporation and working with Fortune 500 Companies. He also served as an Adjunct Professor of Franklin University / School of Business.
And then, as Pete tells it, “A BUILT TO LEAD shaped brick to the head” turned him from thirty professional years in business, to doing a work of passion.
He went on to coach on the BUILT TO LEAD team of “Builders,” experienced leaders of large organizations who transform mediocre or ‘good’ performance into sustainable high performance in work and life.
On a personal level, Pete’s determination and disciplined fitness practices carried him through multiple surgeries over a span of forty years. Through those experiences, Pete learned a great deal about pain, and the importance of fitness, rehabilitation, and personal well-being. His desire is to help others lead an active, fulfilling, and purposeful life, just as he strives to do every day.
His newest venture, with KSM Sports and Fitness, is the culmination of a lifetime of experience, combined with two of his greatest passions: LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT and PHYSICAL FITNESS. It is done in partnership with an even greater passion: his family, and his son, Ryan, in particular.
Pete is a Certified Personal Trainer and is also certified through Ohio Health to teach the “Delay the Disease” program, which is recognized nationally. In addition, he is a Certified Executive Coach and a Certified Practitioner of Positive Psychology.
Through his lifelong experiences and learning, Pete is highly qualified to offer his knowledge to help individuals with the physical and mental challenges that occur with age.
Pete has been married to his wife, Chris, since 1975. Together, they have two grown children, Meg and Ryan; a wonderful daughter-in-law, Nicole; and a beloved grandsons, Ryan (Diggy) and Teague. They have made Columbus, Ohio, their home for over forty years.
