Peter Grant Johnson

It is with great sadness that we let you know that Roots has lost one of its own. Peter Johnson began at Roots in early 2011, when we were located on 8th and Pearl. Over the years, he and his wife Carrie have been active at the shop, participating in group classes and working one on one with Zac and Ryan.

Peter was a natural athlete and he had a good time during his training hours at Roots. The coaches will always remember Peter for his enthusiasm, positivity, and his incredible collection of 80s ski gear!

Ryan worked with Peter for over two years. Over those years, many things stood out about Peter and Ryan has shared a few here: 

  • His concern for the environment
  • His bringing in a water, a pea green scoop shake, and yesterday’s tea and carrying them all over the shop during a workout
  • His forgetting something every workout (shoes, socks, jackets, H2O bottles, you name it!)
  • His short shorts
  • His love of a good deal (“I had this shipped direct from China!”)
