Gentilcore/Somerset Boston Workshop
When asked to name popular dynamic duos many people will inevitably toss out examples such as Batman and Robin, The British Bulldogs, Thelma and Louis, peanut butter & jelly, and while many non-nerdy types will gloss over this last one, even Optimus Prime and Megatron were once BFFs and “brothers-in-arms” while on their home planet of Cybertron. That is, of course, until their friendship turned into an episode of Gossip Girl.
You see Optimus was given the title of Prime by the Council of Cybertron, a title that Megatron felt was rightfully his. Megatron called Optimus a big, fat meanie head. Optimus was like, “oh no you didn’t!” And then all hell broke loose, and the two brought their little disagreement to Earth.
And while I’d love to sit here and discuss Transformer mythology with you until the cows come home, I know that’s not necessarily the reason you log onto this site on a daily basis. Besides, I have some pretty BIG news and more important matters address.
Speaking of dynamic duos, both Dean Somerset and myself are going to be putting on a two-day workshop here in the greater Boston area the weekend of July 27th. Saturday July 27th and Sunday July 28th to be exact.
Dean and Tony’s Excellent Workshop High Five
While we’re half jokingly using that as the title, anyone who reads our respective blogs understands that even though Dean and I like to NOT take ourselves too seriously, we also pride ourselves on providing top-notch information and doing our part(s) in trying to make the industry better.
This workshop is going to be our attempt at doing just that.
Our goal is to cover a litany of topics ranging from assessment to corrective exercise to exercise technique to how long it takes before I start saying “eh” every other sentence from hanging out with Dean for an entire weekend.
Pssst: Dean’s Canadian…..;o)
In all seriousness we’re really excited about this opportunity, and while the goal is to target personal trainers and coaches, anyone who has an interest in fitness and making people better would gain a lot from attending this workshop. As Dean put it:
You’ll be able to follow along even if you’ve never taken an exercise physiology course or worked as a trainer before. If you know the difference between your diaphragm and your knee, you should do alright.
The workshop itself will be held on my home-turf, Cressey Performance, and for those curious CEUs will be provided!
Also of note: our goal is to keep this fairly “intimate” and small(ish) in size, as we’d really like to give people the opportunity to interact as much as possible with myself and Dean. To that end, we’re capping the number to 30 attendees.
Space is expected to go quickly, so if you’re teetering on whether or not you should come (and you totally should!), you’ll want to take advantage of the early bird special as soon as you can.
