When Peter Brasovan opened Myriad Health + Fitness with partner Jared Byczko in 2011, the budget was so tight they had to ration paper towels, and the pair did everything from coaching to cleaning the toilets.
Today, Peter is CFO and Integrator, and Myriad Health + Fitness is a $1 million gym with 500 members, 9 full-time staff and 20 part-time coaches and yoga instructors.
Before going all in on fitness, Peter worked as a traveling manager for a national marketing company representing PlayStation. Shortly after finding CrossFit, he opened NapTown Fitness (rebranded to Myriad Health + Fitness in 2021) in a tiny ex-FBI office space on a short-term lease. The goal was to help people realize their potential in fitness and life while connecting them with a strong community.
The gym has grown considerably since then. After expanding and relocating three times—each time negotiating a better price per square foot—Myriad purchased two buildings with a combined 38,000 square feet. Today, the gym offers over 120 classes per week across multiple programs (CrossFit — “Strength + Fitness,” yoga, Boot Camp, Kids and Longevity), each run by a high-level leadership team consisting of a COO, CMO, CXO (chief experience officer), Integrator and Visionary.
Peter discovered Two-Brain Business after reading Chris Cooper’s “Help First” in 2015.
“After talking with Chris on our free call, we knew we had to join Two-Brain Business,” he said.
In 2018, Myriad generated $1 million in revenue with a profit margin of 18 percent after the owners’ pay, and the business did it again in 2019 and 2020.
Peter became a coach because he’s passionate about helping others, and that’s why he’s a certified Two-Brain mentor, too.
“I often ask, ‘How can I help (people) push their knowledge and lives in the direction they want?’ This carries over into my life as a husband and a dad. Do I provide my family the opportunities to be the best versions of themselves no matter what that is? I want to provide this same level of care and passion to other entrepreneurs as their mentor.”
With a decade of team-building experience behind him, Peter specializes in staffing: leading, motivating and mentoring employees to become “intrapreneurs” in their own right. A building owner and part owner of two real-estate holding companies, he also specializes in financing real-estate purchases.
Peter holds a degree in marketing and supply chain management from the Kelly School of Business at Indiana University and is a husband, father and sports enthusiast.
“My mission as a mentor is to make the list of ‘10 people who have motivated or changed my life’ for 500 different people/entrepreneurs,” he said.
