The Evolution of my journey to a Performance Lifestyle
I know what it feels like to struggle with an ambition that outpaces your capacity to keep up. From early on, I was a driven person, yet at an early age, I began suffering from low-grade, intensifying fatigue that clouded my life, even when things were going well.
I was crushing it but was also getting crushed by excessive stress and tiredness that compounded over time. Essential areas of my life seemed to be on permanent hold as my own needs weren’t getting met meanwhile I focused even more on my success. And the mounting crush took its toll on my life experience and relationships, my health, performance, and well-being.
On the outside, I kept the game face on, but on the inside things were not as they seemed, and I needed to do something about it. I grew to know the answer was not one thing, but rather a new lifestyle-based approach to how I achieved my goals and the quality of success I wanted.
Today, as an entrepreneur and a family man, I’m the founder of Performance Lifestyle® Training, Coaching, and Consulting along with small chain of recovery centers focused on “regenerating us” called Regenus Centers™; a company I founded with my wife and partner Mariahna to help achiever types recover from the excess stress-pain and fatigue of the past and renew their personal power for the future.
I train and coach entrepreneurs, business professionals and executives, many of whom are also working parents, with a first lifestyle-based performance system ever created so they can achieve even their most ambitious goals amidst the relentless demands we all face on our time and energy, without burning out or trading their health for success.
Over 20 years, on the path of optimizing my lifestyle for energy, health, and performance with the help of a world-class advisory team; I defined what it actually means and what it really takes to live a performance lifestyle and a high-performance lifestyle—one of the hottest emerging topics in the market.
And now, I can save you up to 20 years or more of your time, energy and money. Just give this a minimum of a 12-month commitment, and go all in. Before you know you’ll be naturally committed to optimal living for the rest of your life.
It’s no easy feat at first; again, it’s not something you accomplish in thirty days, and I am no superhero. I am still on the path myself, as I constantly liver better and better; but it is now simplified, into 30-day segments, you can dial-in over 12 months to transform into the healthiest, best performing, most successfully energized and productive person you can possibly imagine - unlike anything you've ever experienced before...
Develop and master a performance lifestyle you can call 'your own', and you will be well on your way to becoming the healthy, high achieving person who thrives and soon living a high—performance lifestyle.
Here at my professional site, you can learn more about how to live a high-performance lifestyle successfully, by engaging in my year-round training PL365 and if you would like the most direct path to turn theory into practice and mastery I coach a select number of people each year.
I look forward to hearing from you on our monthly training calls or working with you live online or by phone; and one day soon, meeting you in person at my center or an event.
Remember, life is short, so live your life, like a pro!
My Hero’s Journey
What Led To The Development Of Performance Lifestyle?
1982 - 1994 The Origins of Overachieving Take Hold
Becoming an Eagle Scout, Captain of 3 Sports, going to high school / college, running a business (s), training for bodybuilding contests, leading a social life and that's the half of it....
Becoming an Eagle Scout, Captain of 3 Sports, going to high school / college, running a business (s), training for bodybuilding contests, leading a social life and that’s the half of it. Yeah, I was trying to best my dad and prove myself for love and respect. It would be a long time before that would die out. By the time this phase was over, at 24, I felt like I was having a midlife crisis.
1985 - 2003 Getting in Over My Head, Tiring Out and the Long Overdue Paid Vacation
The Internet Launched, so what does any self-respecting entrepreneur do? Dump what you’re doing an get involved in the new world, from the start....
I had so much going on I was barely hanging on, but the opportunity was too great to sideline even though I did not really know what I was doing. Everyone was learning in real time during this phase. At the tail end of this phase, even working hard for another company for the first time, and successfully, it was like a vacation. I didn’t have to run the company.
2003 - 2007 Thinking I Had Solved My Performance Addiction, I Was Back at It Again

In transition, this is where I first started to do something about my way of life, but the competitive drives that kept me keeping on, were secretively being replaced by a desire to stop once abut I simply couldn’t. Overspent, in more ways than one, I simply could not keep it up anymore and had to go it alone. I need space and time to recover. It was during this time, I experienced divorce, bankruptcy and more.
2008-2015 The Beginning of the End of a Downward Spiral No One Could See, but I Was Experiencing.
Low point in my life, following my last high school reunion, I picked up a book called Performance Addiction by Arthur P. Ciaramicoli PhD...
Low point in my life, following my last high school reunion, I picked up a book called Performance Addiction by Arthur P. Ciaramicoli PhD and just stopped.Toughest time changing the story of my life, imagine digging deep and learning to learn how to think differently but doing it with the pressure of writing a book! I was in the throes of addiction people praised me for. It would be years before I was experientially qualified to promote the book. So, I started a natural products nutrition company. It was during this time I woke up. Literally.
2015 - 2018 Finally, a New Beginning
After years of virtually non-stop activity, and an accident caused by exhaustion, that nearly killed me; I stopped and literally bought the time and space to begin my recovery, and planning for a different future....
I stopped and literally bought the time and space to begin my recovery, and planning for a different future.
My wife and I had a baby daughter Grace, aptly named for my now highest value. As part of my recovery, an entrepreneur will always be an entrepreneur.
I expanded our company mission to include the recovery from excess stress, learned how to sleep and planned our first Regenus Center, while completing the Performance Lifestyle curriculum. It was not all smooth sailing, and just as challenging as ever, only now I was living a lifestyle that supported me and what I was up to in the world and I get better at it every. Turned 50 and now I plan to crush it, without getting crushed!
2019 - PL365 Launches
A founding community of driven, goal and success oriented people (business professionals, entrepreneurs, executives, managers and working parents) who want to learn the new balanced and healthy approach to how we achieve our goals. and apply the Performance Lifestyle curriculum together. We're ALL in training.....
There are no Performance Lifestyle Guru's, just those who are competent and grounded in more experience than others in some or all aspects of Performance Lifestyle. As the Founder, I am approaching this period with the intent to serve others at a whole new level, with the full Performance Lifestyle curriculum together. We'll be focusing on Sleep Performance and Recovery most, during this time, while introducing PL and helping people understand what it means to develop a lifestyle that supports them and what they are up to in the world. Personally, I am making a "Regeneration Transformation," to recover as fully as possible from the excess stress of the past. I AM setting myself up for Crushing it, Without Getting Crushed.
