Peak Human Performance invites you to our next education workshop!
These hands-on information sessions are designed to empower our community. We understand the difficulty in creating a positive work/life balance and as a business owner, a coach, an athlete or a parent it is very difficult and time consuming to research, disseminate and correctly implement new found knowledge safely into a training program for optimal performance.
Our educational series brings together industry experts to discuss and share the most up-to-date information, techniques and methodologies to improve the base knowledge, workouts and lifestyles of our athletes and clients alike.

Coach Alex White is a hometown boy born and raised in Columbus, Ohio. Whether coaching or training his emphasis and attention to quality movements are paramount to his philosophy.

It is Coach White’s dream to build Peak Human Performance into a well recognized and respected authority in the development of human performance. When he is not at P.H.P. he is reading, exploring the outdoors, listening to music, and spending time with family & friends. Alex’s cheat meal?

Coach Bobby Jocson (pronounced Hawk-Son) is originally from Bloomington, Illinois. When training Coach Jocson focuses on developing open lines of communication while building a trusting partnership with his clients. These two components help ensure that each client has a firm understanding of what the program will be and what is expected of them to achieve success. “It’s important for my clients to have realistic and measurable goals Jocson says. Goals keep you focused on an end result because if they seem unattainable right out of the gate you get discouraged and are likely to lose motivation.” He says that creating an environment for his clients to both progress while feeling better about themselves is the most important aspect of his job. When Bobby works out, he prefers power based strength training and aspires to compete in the “Alpha Warrior” competition. Professionally, he is eager to continue to learn both physically and mentally about the different aspects of being a successful trainer and business owner. Outside of the gym he enjoys playing golf, camping and challenging himself physically by attempting new things. Bobby’s favorite meal? A medium rare steak and a slice of peach pie.
