Key Staff Members at PEAC

With successful and reputable careers as a business owner, consultant and advisor, Michael pursued his passion and vision to create a health and fitness facility that would stand out and appeal to all ages and lifestyles. With the goal of promoting a healthy lifestyle through caring professionals and continual education in a state-of-the-art, non-intimidating, social environment, the Pennington Athletic Club, “PAC,” was founded in 1995.  PAC’s philosophy was overwhelmingly appreciated, and soon a search for a larger facility was launched.  In 2004, PAC relocated to the spacious Pennington-Ewing Athletic Club, “PEAC.”  At PEAC, the founding philosophy and culture are maintained and cultivated through an expanded facility, a wide range of services and valued members. Although the PEAC staff is an extended family, Michael is infatuated with his wife and children.
