The strength and fitness industry has for too long been dominated by overly-tan, annoyingly-loud YouTube celebrities with less than factual content, aka broscience. Tune in to Strength Chat – hosted by a group of Coaches and Athletes with over 60 years of combined experience – as they talk fact, science, and strength with world-renowned strength, conditioning, and rehab professionals.

You’ve all probably seen a video of Tony on IG or social media somewhere – he’s a badass former Marine, ex-SWAT and Narcotics Officer who currently specializes in high-performance tactical training for athletes and LE/Military alike.

Tony came down to the Lab for a weekend of shooting, training, and general badassery!

Our hosts sit down with Tony in-person to discuss his unique training methodologies, plans for the future, and everything in-between. Make sure to tune in, share with your friends, and check out some of the other cool content we’ve published from Tony’s trip to the Lab.
