The Next Fitness Power Couple?

Share This:

I think my wife and I are starting to become a fitness power couple.


We’re not quite at the same level (or stratosphere) as the Cosgrove’s (Alwyn and Rachel), but in the past year it’s been pretty cool to see my wife, Dr. Lisa Lewis, gaining some attention from my neck of the woods.

(Not So) Humble Brag Alert

As most who read this website know, Lisa is a psychologist with a doctorate in Sports Psychology. She has a special interest in mindset, mindfulness, and exercise/behavioral psychology, and as it happens this is an area or niche that’s been receiving a ton more attention in the fitness industry of late.

We all tend to be our own worst enemy and Lisa can speak to many of the mental roadblocks and clusterfuckery (<– my words, not hers) that can often hamper progress or even prevent people from starting to exercise in the first place.

It’s been a treat to see people reach out to her for her expertise.

In the past year:

  • She’s performed several I Am Not Afraid to Lift workshops with Artemis Scantalides (the next one with Lisa is this November here in Boston. You can go HERE for more information and to register).
  • She and I have been invited to Austin, TX and London to put on our Strong Body-Strong Mind workshop.
  • She’s also seen her name in print in the likes of Women’s Health Magazine and

And while she’s a doctor, she’s also a doctor who lifts. #fitnessstreetcred

To say I’m proud would be an understatement. And to say I’m excited to see what the future holds for her (and us) would be even more of an understatement.1

One of the bigger “events” of late was Lisa being invited onto The FitCast a few weeks ago to record an episode.

She CRUSHED It. I’m totally not biased.

You can listen to her episode HERE (and look for another episode in a few more weeks. She and Kevin recorded Part II a few days ago).

More to come, I’m sure.

Did what you just read make your day? Ruin it? Either way, you should share it with your friends and/or comment below.

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.

  • She is awesome!

      Lisa LOVES you Georgie. Thanks for your support.

    Great podcast! Psychology plays such a huge role in determining whether someone starts or continues a healthy lifestyle/workout. Going to search if your wife has a blog. 😉

      Candace: alas, she does not. We’re in the process of getting a domain name for her. The one she wants already has a owner (but it willing to sell it). Fingers crossed we get it!

  • How did I miss that episode of the Fitcast? Definitely going to have a listen!

    • TonyGentilcore

      Lisa would love to hear your thoughts.

  • Lisa1

    Loved that episode and at the end I was like whatdyaknow, that’s Tony’s wife. I want to hear a lot more of what she has to say!

    • TonyGentilcore

      She’s pretty stupidly smart.

      Kevin invited her back on and they recorded another episode, so that should be available in a few weeks.

    You’re a lucky man Tony. I bet you get away with nothing though.

        Welcome to the club 🙂

  • Me and my boy friend love to be a power full couple in fitness YO! while doing workouts having healthy diets and lots more thanks for sharing.

      Right on Delilah. It’s pretty cool having a partner who’s into the lifestyle as well. Makes things super easy (and sometimes super competitive).
