Posts in "Off Topic"

Sometimes I get sick of teaching people how to squat correctly or convincing people that not benching 3x per week won’t start the Apocalypse. Sometimes I just want to talk about Beast Wars, food, or a recent movie I saw. This section is what I do so that I don’t have to assume a fake identity and start trolling random message boards.

Something I Never Thought I’d Call Myself…..

A Belieber! Bahahaha! Just kidding. Actually the word I’m looking for is “foodie.” I never thought I’d refer to myself as a foodie. Photo Credit: Nadia Seccareccia Or, as Urban Dictionary eloquently refers to it, “a douchebag who likes food.” In that case I’ll raise my hand and offer myself to judgement and possible ridicule: “My… Read more


  Only 384 days until Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens opens (Dec 2015). So we’re clear: having a nerd boner for that long is completely healthy, right? I trust JJ Abrams implicitly. He mentioned in an interview I read not too long ago that he was going to try to not rely… Read more

Movie Review: Whiplash

There’s a scene in Whiplash where the camera pans over Andrew’s shoulder (played by Miles Teller) as he’s lying on his bed tapping his fingers to an imagined tempo reverberating inside his head to a quote on his wall that says, “if you can’t do it right, you’ll end up joining a rock band.” Or… Read more

So, in a way,… Read more

I also linked to a simple test you can take to figure out… Read more

Confessions of an Introverted Strength Coach – Part I

Hi. My name is Tony Gentilcore, and I’m an introvert. I always have been, and always will be. And, if I’m going to be honest with myself it’s only been within the last few years of my adult life where I’ve accepted it, embraced it, and recognized that it’s played a massive role in not… Read more

Creating Content and Writing Style: An Introspective On Arguably the Most Boring Topic Ever

I received an email the other day from a good friend of mine, Jon Goodman, whom many of you may recognize from The Personal Training Development Center (an awesome, FREE, resource for any trainers out there reading), as well as such book as Ignite the Fire, Race to the Top, and his soon-to-be-released project, Viralnomics,… Read more

12 Epic Movie Scenes

When I was in Vancouver a few weekends ago for a friend’s wedding, the groom and I started chatting about movies (cause we’re both nerds) and he mentioned that he and a bunch of his friends often get together and show 5-15 minute clips of their favorite scenes from their favorite films. I think that’s… Read more
