If you’ve ever asked yourself any of the following questions, you’re in the right place:
- “How can I get more done in less time?”
- “How can I have more energy and less stress?”
- “How can I have more willpower and self-control?”
- “How can I get healthier, leaner, and stronger?”
- “How can I be my best at work and at home?”

Hi, my name is Pete Leibman. I’m the creator of StrongerHabits.com, and the author of Work Stronger; Habits for More Energy, Less Stress, and Higher Performance at Work.
As a fifteen year-old student, I was 5’10” and had size thirteen sneakers, while only weighing 119 pounds. I looked like a “human L.” There’s no way that either of us would have predicted then that I’d eventually create a web site and write a book with the word “stronger” in the title.
After transforming my body at the end of high school, I became obsessed with seeing what else could be improved. Since then, I’ve completed a degree in Psychology at Johns Hopkins University and spent more than fifteen years studying behavior change, psychology, and high performance.
Since 2009, I’ve coached people privately and taught weekly Sports Conditioning classes (I’m certified as a fitness trainer) for hundreds of people who live in the Washington, D.C. area. I’ve also competed in endurance obstacle races, including the Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) World Championships, an international event with athletes from more than forty countries.
Most of my career has been spent inside of an office, perhaps like you. Currently, I work at Heidrick & Struggles, a leadership advisory firm that serves the majority of the Fortune 500. (Note: Opinions expressed on this site are strictly my own.)
Over the years, many people have asked me how to form stronger habits, so that they can feel better, look better, and perform better. While I certainly don’t have all the answers, I created this web site to share what I’ve learned along the way. I write articles and books that are practical, easy to understand, and based on my personal experience, my interviews with high performers, and my analysis of the latest scientific research.
I write about a range of topics related to habits, psychology, and high performance. My core message is that stronger habits (not willpower, gimmicks, or genetics) are the key to achieving and maintaining higher performance over the long term.
My mission is to help ambitious people become the healthiest, strongest, and highest-performing person that they can be. Nothing brings me more joy than helping ambitious people overcome challenges and achieve their dreams. The strategies in my books and articles have improved my life and the lives of other people immensely. I hope that you find them valuable as well!
