My multidimensional training system harnesses knowledge acquired from 25+ years of athletic competition, training with the best coaches and mentors in the world, and my own personal in-depth studies. Over the years, I have experienced and experimented with a diversity of strength training protocols, conditioning methods, joint mobilization techniques, physical therapy approaches, yoga practices and martial arts styles. The training methods in this system rely on thorough planning but also can be spontaneously customized to meet the needs of the moment.
My training sessions are crafted to train all aspects of the body and mind, pushing you to your physical and mental limits. The goal of my training is to follow the first rule of survival: Adapt or Die. Destroying previous plateaus and producing positive change takes great effort, but no undue harm needs to be done to the body or the mind. Through my understanding of progressive training, body mechanics, and fundamental human physiology, I set the stage for success. Each session is administered in a safe, well thought out manner.
My system is a balanced one. Not only will I push you to your limits, I also will provide you with diet recommendations and recovery techniques to help rejuvenate the mind and body. Understanding that you can only adapt to what you can recover from, I use a variety of recovery methods to help you de-stress. These techniques take you out of survival mode and bring you back to a restful state where you can re-build your body with proper rest and nutrition.
My training system was built out of out necessity. My entire life I have set high-standards for myself, always aiming towards excellence. All my knowledge, acquired through a lifetime of study and practice, has been distilled into a practical training method that I personally use in my daily life. The goal is to empower each individual with skillsets that will create a sense power and stillness within, enabling one to grow in every aspect of life. It is my hope to share my creation with those who possess the desire to live with humility, courage, and honor. With these virtues in mind, one can take on any challenge in life and come out as the victor.
"The first and greatest victory is to conquer yourself."
"I’ve worked with a lot of different trainers and strength coaches through my years of playing football, but Tony has been one of the best I’ve worked with. He’s professional in what he does and has tons of experience in training athletes (being one himself). He knows and spends time learning different sports to provide specific training for each athlete’s sport. He prepared me for my first season in the NFL with the San Francisco 49ers physically and mentally. Tony brings to the table his passion for sport, developing athletes to be their best in the healthiest way and loving what he does!"
CHARLIE WOERNER / Tight End, San Francisco 49ers
“I had the absolute pleasure of working with Tony. He gave me the tools to be successful at the next level. We worked on nutrition, mental, strength, conditioning, and agility work. He gives you the tools to be successful and is one of the best trainers I have ever worked with.”
NAVY SHULER / Quarterback, Appalachian State University
"Tony and his system is something that I couldn’t be happier crossed the path of my football team and has become part of Christ School. I have already noticed that the guys move better, focus better, and most importantly are healthier than they have ever been. Tony’s knowledge of the demand on the body is second to none. He understands the young men and what they need to perform at a high level. I have been around a lot of people in the fitness/strength and conditioning world and Tony’s method is so much more in depth and state of the art to what today's game is. In a time where people are always trying to find the edge over others, Tony definitely has a blue print for that. I would highly recommend Tony to people of all walks of life."
TOMMY LANGFORD / Head Coach, The Christ School (Arden, NC)
“Tony is one of the first Trainers I've used that stressed the importance of mental health. On top of providing a great program to enhance your physique, he also provides you with exercises to recenter yourself. Since working with Tony, my posture & mobility have made a significant improvement. No matter how old or young you are, I highly recommend Tony's training.”
