Hello, my name is Pat King. Thank you for stopping by. I teach people how to optimize their mind and body. So they can look, feel and perform their best both mentally and physically.
My mission is to teach and empower people through powerful mindfulness, health, fitness, wellness and recovery programs. To become the absolute best version of themselves so that they can live their best lives possible.
I have been a health & fitness professional for over 20 years. I have worked in nearly every role in the health, fitness & wellness industry. Here are a few relevant highlights:
- Certified Personal Trainer
- Certified Sports Nutritionist
- Lifestyle Management Concierge
- Wellness Director
- General Manager General Nutrition
- General Manager Multi Location’s Gold’s Gym
- Regional Fitness Director of 15 locations for Gold’s Gym
- Training & Development Director
- General Manager at US Fitness
- Training & Developing Team at US Fitness
- Managing Owner of Gold’s Gym Franchise
- Owner Powerhouse Sports Club
- Owner Body Renew Fitness
Although I have pursued several other business ventures in my lifetime, health & wellness has always been my passion since my first job as a personal trainer 23 years ago. Even during times when I was involved full time in businesses outside of the industry, I still always kept personal training & coaching clients in addition to what I was doing. I have always had a strong desire or calling to help others.
In addition to my career, I was very involved in the competitive side of fitness as well. I spent many years as a competitive body builder, became a brown belt in USJA Judo/Jujitsu, competed competitively in National Judo Tournaments including winning at the United States Naval Academy Judo Championship among other regional events as well.
I originally started Beyond Survivorship 15 years ago while living in North Carolina. I had the same mission then as now, I just needed to learn a few more lessons from life as it seems. I was a full time coach, writer and speaker of my own seminars.
The past few years I have been absent from the health and fitness field. After going through back surgeries, fighting a pain killer addiction and struggling with alcoholism for many years, I needed some time off to focus on getting my mind right. I got sober in June 2017 and ever since my number one goal every single morning when my feet hit the floor is to be a better human being than I was the day before. To look where I can improve, to continue to be the best version of myself so that I can be of the most usefulness to others. A daily reprieve of living for a greater purpose. To share my experience and stories of failure, triumph and more failures and yet another greater triumph. The greatest of all the last few years. You see, I have beaten more than a pain killer addiction and drinking problem. The list of personal tragedies that I have overcome in my lifetime is long.
I have taken my body through hell and back and at the age of 44 I am in the absolute best physical, mental and emotional condition that I have ever been in my life. I have truly reached a state of daily happiness, content and peace.
I have combined my years of professional experience, personal experience and personal triumphs with in depth course studies in mindfulness, neurolinguistics programming and biohacking to build an incredible program to mentor and coach others to live Beyond Survivorship! We’re all just surviving day in and day out. Everything that we do and choices we make are fear based, domesticated decisions to just survive and please others. It’s time you take back your life, build the mind and body that you are happy in. And carry what you learn on through your life and teach others.
That’s what Beyond Survivorship is all about. Yes, we have coaching programs. But its bigger than that. It’s bigger than you and I. Beyond Survivorship is my personal mission and passion to change the world. Live, learn and teach each other a better way of life. To give people hope. If I can overcome being a hopeless, homeless drunk that didn’t want to live to what I am today 3 years later…..anyone can overcome what they are going through. There is hope and if you’re struggling in some area of your life, perhaps my experience will help you over come yours as well.
Some people watch it happen, others make it happen, and some say, what the heck just happened. Pat King is living his life with passion. He has a sound foundation of experience and knowledge and is an example of living authentically. Pat has a no-nonsense authentic zest for life—he is an “all in” person and will not sit back and watch things happen for himself or clients. Pats encouragement and commitment to others are genuine, and nothing short of remarkable.

Pats encouragement and commitment to others are genuine, and nothing short of remarkable. If I had listened to Pat back in the day, I would be a multimillionaire. I was not willing to change at that time in my life.
Pat is a tremendous asset to the fitness industry. Pat’s personal commitment to fitness and his experience in the health club industry as a regional director and gym owner contribute to his knowledge base and enthusiasm. He is an advocate for anyone who wants to be successful in the fitness industry.
Pat is a passionate fighter that has a heart to serve. If I had to pick people to start an army with he would be a top draft choice.
Pat King was the first person to recruit me into Gold’s Gym International and showed me ropes in sales, gym operations, and personal training. He was a great leader and I had the pleasure of watching him train and develop many other assets for the company during our tenure.
Pat King is a reliable, responsible, conscientious, hard working and conscientious business man. I would highly recommend him as a businessman, freind or person in any capacity.
I started following Pat about 1 1/2 – 2 years ago. I was inspired by his posts, by the honesty and the rawness of his posts and felt immediately connected to this “like-minded” person who had not only overcome his own personal battles, but was using that as a way to help others! How many of us are willing to pull all the skeletons out of the closet; to make ourselves completely vulnerable for the purpose of helping others? I have been working with Pat on a DAILY basis for just over 5 weeks now and I’ve already implemented several small changes in my life and my daily routines that have made a significant impact in my health, in my state of mind, in my overall well being…
Beyond Survivorship will be the best coaching program there is in the coming year. But more importantly, we will build a community of people who share the same vision. And we will carry this message to everyone who wants to improve their lives.
