Miscellaneous Miscellany: Fitness Pro Coaching and Business Advice

My good friend Bryan Krahn has a weekly “series” he does on his Facebook page called Five Boner Friday. Each iteration centers around random thoughts he has on training, nutrition, life, being a dad, supplements, and not actual boners. Thank god. I used to write a similar series titled Miscellaneous Miscellany Mondays. Today is not… Read more

Miscellaneous Miscellany Monday: It’s Go Time Edition

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these. First things first: We’re in the final countdown for baby Gentilewis to arrive. Lisa entered week #40 this week and we’re gearing up for the due date which is technically this Friday, January 27th.   We think we’re ready, but we’re both pretty realistic about… Read more

I hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend and have had ample time to recover from their Halloween candy induced insulin coma. Don’t worry, I’m not judging. If you want to dress up as a Stormtrooper or slutty vampire and walk to a party while double fisting Butterfingers, have at it. This needs to happen more… Read more

Miscellaneous Miscellany Monday Musings: January 2015

Welcome to the first Miscellaneous Miscellany Post of 2015! Fresh off an impressive Pats win last night no less! So, what’s everyone’s prediction for the Super Bowl? I honestly have a hard time convincing myself to pick one team over the other. I tend to ride on the same fence as my favorite sports talk… Read more

Miscellaneous Miscellany Monday: Get-ups, Deadlifts, and B-Days

1.  I have a love-hate relationship with Turkish get-ups. Photo Credit: John Maguire As a coach I love them in the sense of how much bang-for-my-training-buck they provide. I get asked all the time from my athletes and clients “what the hell do these get-up thingamabobbers do anyways?” To which I respond: what don’t they… Read more

Miscellaneous Miscellany Monday: 10/27/14

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve done one of these, so lets jump right into it. 1. I wanted to first thank everyone who’s gone out of their way to reach out and to say such nice things about the new site. Words cannot even express how much more I love the new site,… Read more
