Peter Gold is a professional trapeze artist, coach, and director of Trapeze-Experience, an industry-leading organization that promotes wellness and personal freedom through the flying trapeze experience. Gold began as a trapeze instructor for Club Med. After studying and teaching at a prominent circus school in Paris, he joined a professional troupe as a catcher.
In total, Peter Gold has performed in eight circuses with five of the top flying trapeze acts in the world, including Ringling Bros. for four years, where he attempted to be the first American to catch the quadruple somersault—the "impossible" trick. Now regarded as one of the best trapeze coaches in the United States, his company has helped more than 100,000 people fly, including training many of today's top coaches.
Peter would go on to be Assistant and General Manager of Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus for 3 years before closing the show on behalf of the owner. In addition, Peter is a safety and risk mitigation specialist, working as the Safety Officer in Ringling Bros., as well as developing the Safety Plan while working as Operations and Production support for the Celestia Show in Las Vegas.
