Peter Garaventa


Operations manager

Peter has been managing our maintenance and cleaning crew for eons! Peter was raised right here in the Napa Valley—A Napa Native for sure. Being the eldest son of a small business owner taught him many things, such as hard work and getting things done right the first time. He attended Justin Siena High School where he was the shining star captain of the football team (well maybe not so shining, but he did co-captain with his cousin). He then went off to U.C Davis to become a vet where he quickly learned that wasn’t his fate. Later finishing his education at Sonoma State University, Peter found a happy place at HealthQuest and has been able to pursue other activities, such as development projects and becoming a horse nurse at a beautiful equine rehab center. He resides on a small ranch in north Napa with his wife and lives for family which includes some pretty awesome grandchildren. He has a B.S. in Biology, yes Peter understands living organisms and readily directs the growth of the good and the eradication of the bad in the gym environment. He also has a minor in Animal Physiology—This part of his education clearly keeps him in the top 5% of understanding all the Fitness Beings, from the Heavy Lifting Beasts to the over zealous Aerobic Queens. He's a certified Pool Operator— Pools! Pools! Pools! One of the hardest areas to maintain in a public facility. No one has a more type A pool room than Mr. Garaventa. He has received more scrutiny and praise in this ever changing environment. Master at “Honey Do”. His capabilities in this arena are endless. Peter can fix fences, plumbing, electrical, pour concrete, dig holes, wrangle chickens and so much more. This is the ultimate handyman.
