When Peter Brasovan opened NapTown 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 COO, and NapTown Fitness is a $1 million gym with 600 members, 13 full-time staff and 30 part-time coaches.
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 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—NapTown purchased two buildings with a combined 38,000 square feet. Today, the gym offers 138 classes per week across multiple programs (CrossFit, yoga, SWIFT boot camp, Kids and Longevity), each run by an intrapreneur mentored by Peter and Jared.
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, NapTown Fitness generated $1 million in revenue—and did it again in 2019 with a profit margin of 18 percent after the owners’ pay.
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 nearly 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.
