I Was Nominated For Something. You Should Vote For Me.

I don’t normally do this but……

…..Holy s*** I was nominated for something!

It wasn’t for an Oscar.

It wasn’t for a Tony Award, as ironical as that would be.

It wasn’t for a Grammy.1

And it definitely wasn’t for anything like “best looking deadlift” or “best last name for a strength coach” or “most likely to kick Batman’s ass” or “owner of cutest cat on Earth.”

It was, however, something unexpected and something I think is pretty cool.

My website/blog was nominated for the 2015 Fitness Blog Awards (in the category of Bodybuilding and Strength) by the website Muscle & Strength.

The last time I was nominated for anything was back when I was a junior in high school for Prom Court.

I didn’t win.

It’s a long story, I don’t want to get into it.

Those fuckers.

Nevertheless, while I can’t sit here and say what, exactly, I’d “win” for winning – other than bragging rights (?) – as the cliche goes, it’s an honor just to be nominated.

As noted on the site:

“The awards are designed to recognize and promote fitness bloggers who create great fitness content that helps others reach their personal health & fitness goals.”

That’s pretty awesome in my book.

[According to the representative who contacted me from the site, in order to be placed onto the ballot you had to be nominated, and those sites which garnered the most nominations were then placed on the final tally.]

So here we are, and thank you to everyone who nominated my site.

What Now?

1. I kind of feel like one of those contestants on The Bachelor or The Bachelorette. I want to win (or at least get into the top four) just to say I made it that far. Except, you know, with less back-stabbing, cattiness, hot tub make-out scenes, and final rose ceremonies.

2. If you have a few spare moments (and you agree with the nomination)2 you can cast your vote HERE. You just need to scroll down a bit and place a checkmark in the appropriate box.

[Cue Jedi mind-trick here]

“You will vote for TonyGentilcore.com”

Voting started yesterday and will continue until May 15th.

You can vote everyday.

3. What’s more, the more often you vote, the more likely you are to win one of ten $50 gift card prizes.

And a hug from me.

–> GO VOTE <–

Plus, get a copy of Tony’s Pick Things Up, a quick-tip guide to everything deadlift-related. See his butt? Yeah. It’s good. You should probably listen to him if you have any hope of getting a butt that good.

I don’t share email information. Ever. Because I’m not a jerk.
  1. Although my shower singing skills would suggest otherwise

  2. No worries, I won’t cry (that much) if you don’t agree.

    Tony! Congratulations on the nomination! And don’t you dare sell yourself short. You are PLENTY like the chicks on The Bachelorette, you did after all recently post a vid of you squatting in a club? with no pants on? which made me raise an eyebrow and LOL (much like Bachelorettes do!) You think I will ever randomly check in with Dan John and see that?! 🙂 You provide so much great content and link me to others that do the same. FOR FREE. Ya rock, and ya got my vote.

    • TonyGentilcore

      LOL – thanks Alicia. I certainly don’t expect to win. All in good fun,

      Thanks for the kind words. I really do appreciate it.

  • Steven Lloyd

    VOTED. Nice work Tony, keep it up.

    • TonyGentilcore

      Thanks, appreciate it Steven.

  • Voted. Hope you win Tony. I would also vote for you to win an Oscar… just ’cause.

      Well, there are A LOT of movies being filmed in or around Boston at all times.

      Maybe there will be a role for a bald-headed, beefy, dude at some point down the road.

  • Kelsey Reed

    Congratulations Tony! That’s awesome, you’ve definitely had a positive impact on the industry. You’ve worked hard so I’ll be voting every day. 🙂

    • TonyGentilcore

      Thanks Kelsey!

  • Sara

    Congrats, Tony! I’m sorry I didn’t read this soon enough to vote. You deserve to win. I enjoy learning and laughing from reading your blog!

    • TonyGentilcore

      Naw, no worries Sara.

      Thanks for chiming in nonetheless.
