2. Coaching Competency – Dublin, Ireland
This is happening Sunday, September 8, 2019 (save $100 NOW)
So what happens when a room full of Irish(w0)men find out I’m not much of a drinker?…;o)
Whether you get paid to tell people to lift heavy things or you just like to lift heavy things yourself, in this 1-day workshop you’ll get the opportunity to listen to me talk about my how I approach assessment and gain a better understanding of how I “match” the exercises I prescribe to better fit the needs, ability level, and more importantly, the anatomy of each individual I work work.
In short, this workshop looks at the “umbrella theme” of my coaching philosophy.

3. Strategic Strength Workshop – London, England
This is happening the weekend of September 14-15th, 2019 (save $100 now).
Luke Worthington and I have presented this workshop twice. Once in London last year and again this past June in Boston.
We’re bringing it back to London this Fall, my most favorite place in the world.
This two-day workshop is designed to arm fitness professionals with all the tools they’ll need to hone their assessment skills and to make their clients/athletes a bunch of bonafide, resilient, strength training Terminators.
Combined Luke and I have ~40 years of coaching experience (or one Dan John) and bring different perspectives and skill-sets to the table; Luke peels back the onion on PRI (Postural Restoration Institute) concepts and assessment, while I go into detail breaking down movement and how to better “match” the exercises we prescribe to our clients.

SOCIAL MEDIA SHENANIGANS
Things that annoy me:
– Brie cheese.
– People who don’t train people commenting on exercise technique.
– Gym owners who post videos of them vacuuming their own facility.
– Kettlebell snobs (DBs work too).
– Ppl who think a squat and DL are the same thing.

My client Ray makes these Racked KB Hold 1-Arm Rows look easy. . Great way to up the ante on a suspension trainer row, but also makes you HATE LIFE from a rotary (anti-rotation) training standpoint. . And yes, internet coaches who will inevitably chime in with “well, Tony, it’s still important to train rotation,”… . …we did. . Relax.
STUFF TO READ WHILE YOU’RE PRETENDING TO WORK
(Even More) Complete Shoulder & Hip Blueprint – Me and a Canadian
Launch sale ENDS THIS WEEKEND.
This is entirely new content that Dean Somerset and I spent well over a year presenting and tweaking before filming it with a professional crew to release to the masses.
It builds off of Version 1.0 but digs deeper into programming considerations, exercise technique, and tickle fights (amongst much, much more).
It’s on SALE through this weekend only so be sure to pick up a copy today…HERE.

Building a Loyal Audience On Instagram: Stop Taking Shortcuts – Meghan Callaway
Followers DO NOT equate to $$$.
Few things grind my gears more – Jake P from The Bachelorette, Voldemort – than shady motherfuckers who pretend (or claim) to be more important than they really are based off their fake followers.
If I Was in Your Shoes, I Wouldn’t Be – Brandon Mancine
Brandon makes the case for wearing no shoes or minimal shoes while training.
Short and to the point.
