About the Instructor:

Pete Pfannerstill, Ph.D., LMT, CKTI

Pete is more than just a Sports Massage Therapist. He is an athlete, a scientist and an educator of the highest degree. His pursuit in helping athletes to their maximum ability to perform is a never-ending goal. His own dedication to running has allowed him to finish over 40 marathons (PR 3:13:12) and ultramarathons, including three 100 mile runs (PR 23:30). He could not have achieved this level of competition without a total understanding of the body and how it works under stress.

Yet Pete did not begin his career in athletics. His schooling was in Chemistry, attaining his doctorate in Analytical Chemistry from the University of Cincinnati in 1989. After working as a chemist for several years, he contemplated increasing his endurance and timing by better understanding the body. He decided that learning sports massage therapy would be advantageous, not only to himself but to his running mates. He never thought that massage therapy would ever become anything more than a hobby.

As Pete attended massage school, he slowly realized that working on people and helping them with their various physical issues was far more satisfying than working in a chemistry lab. The more he learned and the more athletes he worked on, the more he realized that sports massage was where he needed to be. It took two long years of developing an athletic clientele before he could say goodbye to chemistry forever. He hasn't looked back since.
