About Pete


Dear Friend,

I want to sincerely thank you for visiting my personal blog.

My name is Pete Genot, and I am the Founder and Editor of The Healthy Minute…a free on-line newsletter publishing the latest breakthroughs in the health industry.

My friends and family refer to me as their personal “Health Advocate,” which just means I work to promote and improve health and wellness. My primary emphasis is on maintaining optimal health through a balance of nutrition, exercise and personal growth.

Although I am a former college football player, hold both Bachelors and Masters degrees from The University of Toledo, and have nearly 25 years of health and fitness experience, that is not why I created The Healthy Minute.

This idea was launched in February 2009 after I was blessed with a second chance – I survived a serious motorcycle accident.  Here’s a picture of the helmet that saved my life…

After several months of recovering from my injuries, I dedicated my life to helping others achieve optimal health through The Healthy Minute website.

This blog contains various musings on fitness, fat loss, muscle building, nutrition, supplements, success, motivation, business, Internet Marketing…and anything else I feel like babbling on about.

My other websites include:


It is my sincere hope that the advice I provide will make a positive difference in your life or the life of someone you love.



P.S. YES, I do still ride my motorcycle.
