'silence' is the definition.
(thesaurus)

'gym guru?' is the wordplay.
'gym' becomes 'pe' (short for Physical Education).
'guru?' becomes 'ace' (I can't explain this - if you can you should believe this answer much more).
'pe'+'ace'='PEACE'

'from' is the link.

(Other definitions for peace that I've seen before include "Absence of conflict", "'Calm, harmony (5)'", "[STILLNESS]", "State of freedom from war", "Calm, serenity".)
