A huge fan of competitive team sports, Pepe participates in ice hockey and ball hockey as many times per week as he’s allowed, dividing his time between Burnaby 8-Rinks and UBC. In Olympic Weightlifting he’s currently very close to achieving the 500/400/300 for Deadlift/Squat/Bench, and working on adding kilos to his clean and jerk and the snatch.

In any other spare time? He loves to coach his kids in hockey and soccer. He’s teaching them to have fun, enjoy exercising, develop good habits…and that effort and discipline pay off.
