Tony Gentilcore on Training, Entrepreneurship, and 90’s Hip-Hop

Tony Gentilcore was one of the co-founders of Cressey Sports Performance and worked there as a coach from 2007-2015. He now runs his own studio in Boston called CORE where he trains athletes and general population clients from all walks of life.

In this show, Tony and I talk about how he programs for the general population, what Bloop Bloop Bloop workouts are, and why you don’t have to open a gym to be considered a legit trainer or coach.

This is a fun and energetic show, and I really think you’re going to enjoy it.

The Best Protein on the Market Today?

For many years, I simply disregarded the age-old advice of getting liquid protein in either during or after workouts.

Part of this was due to the fact that most had so much crap in them I didn’t want to put them in my body, and others might have been high-quality but tasted absolutely disgusting.

However, if you’re looking for a protein that’s not only high-quality but also tastes amazing, you need to check out Momentous.

I’ve been using Momentous for several months now, and I can tell you it’s hands-down the best tasting protein I’ve ever had. But it’s not just me – I have numerous elite athletes who are very picky with their protein powders, and every one of them raves about how great Momentous protein shakes taste.

And while the taste is amazing, the best part about Momentous is that they’re incredibly transparent with what goes into their product. You never have to worry about a tainted or dirty supplement, as all of their products are NSF and Informed Sport certified.

If you’d like to try Momentous out for yourself, here’s how to do it:

  1. Head over to
  2. If you want to try a sample, use the code RobertsonSample
  3. When you’re order to order, use the code Robertson20 to save 20% off your first order!

Regardless of which option you choose, I guarantee once you try Momentous protein shakes, you’ll never go back to anything else!
