Because heavy things won't lift themselves

About Tony Gentilcore

Tony Gentilcore Deadlift

Admist all the other blogs and websites out there, you happened to stumble upon mine.  I don’t know anything about you, but it’s readily apparent you’re off the charts intelligent.  And good looking.

For those who are actually interested here’s a little bit about me, written in the third person narrative, because that’s how I roll:

Tony Gentilcore is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) holding a degree in Health Education with a concentration in Health/Wellness Promotion from the State University of New York at Cortland. Tony has established an outstanding reputation due to his no-nonsense approach to training, unique perspective on program design, and corrective exercise experience.

Tony is also one of the co-founders of Cressey Performance, located in Hudson, MA. His ability to relate closely to CP student athletes, aspiring professional athletes, and experienced professionals, dates back to his collegiate baseball experience. Tony was named Most Valuable Pitcher in 1996 and 1997 for Onondaga Community College (Syracuse, NY), where he was also named 1st Team all Conference and 1st Team all Region. He earned an athletic scholarship to play baseball at Mercyhurst College in Erie, PA where he was also named a “Division II Player to Watch” in 1998.

Tony is a regular contributor to many reputable fitness publications such as Testosterone Magazine (,,, Men’s Health Magazine, Women’t Health Magazine, to name a few.

Check out his article archives.

He’s also an established speaker traveling around North America (and sometimes venturing across the pond) discussing training, coaching, and why Tracy Anderson is about as intelligent as a ham sandwich.

Additionally, Tony loves lifting heavy things, telling other people to lift heavy things, eating dead animal flesh, hanging out at bookstores (nerd alert), talking about Star Wars, and Matt Damon.

Seriously, he and Matt could totally be BFFs.
