Peter Brasovan made his passion for fitness a career, by co-founding NapTown Fitness. Peter grew up in Merrillville, Indiana learning hard work through mentorship from great sports coaches and observing his entrepreneurial family. He played soccer at IUPUI and graduated with three degrees and a minor before touring around the United States for Playstation.

After a few tours and an investment bet with his friends, Peter got a job with the White Sox and joined CrossFit Chicago. He decided to work for his membership fee between games, not realizing that owner Ruby Tapalla would mentor him for his future career. When his best friend, Jared Byczko, was interested in starting a business, they took their Kelley School of Business majors to Indianapolis to start Crossfit NapTown right before the 2012 Super Bowl.

“We have so much love and compassion for this community and it’s hard to articulate that all the time. We just want this place to be special for as many people as possible for many years to come.” – Peter Brasovan

Learn how NapTown Fitness was founded with no outside investments, how it has evolved to be more than a CrossFit gym, and how it’s achieving its mission to make Indianapolis one of the healthiest cities.
