My background prior to my P90X2 results… If only I could have gotten P90X2 results like this as a youth. I was always a reasonably athletic kid, but was chubby from late elementary until late high school. But in my early 20s, I got in great shape and really fell in love with fitness, so [...]
When to exercise: morning, noon, or night? This is a question I get frequently and one that has a really easy answer… scroll to the bottom if you don’t want to wait. But if you want to read the various pros/cons of each time slot, journey on. When to exercise: morning Morning is my personal [...]
Fitness for less sound good? Wouldn’t you like to add to your savings? Probably so, but finding extra dollars to put into savings is a challenge for everyone. Would you like to start a new fitness program? Maybe not. But what if you could boost your savings by getting healthier? That’s what I call fitness [...]
If you’re wondering, “Should I weigh myself?” the answer may not be a simple “yes” or “no.” Let’s take a look at both sides of the argument. Before deciding, “Should I weigh myself?” Before deciding “Should I weigh myself?” it’s important to understand that trimming down should be about shedding fat, NOT about losing weight. [...]
In its most basic form, carb cycling (or carbohydrate cycling) is an approach to eating in which you greatly restrict your carbohydrate intake for a set period of days, followed by a brief period of medium to high carbohydrate intake. Then you repeat this cycling process: carbs off for a while, then on briefly, then [...]
There’s a parable that motivational speakers like to use. The speaker will ask the audience: “If a draft horse can pull between one to three tons, what would you expect two draft horses to be able to pull?” After posing the question, he’ll give the audience time to do some math and whisper their best [...]
For some time now, I thought it would be really helpful if there was a place I could go to enter the ingredients I have in my kitchen, click a button, and various smoothie recipes I could make would appear out of nowhere. “Someone really needs to build that,” I thought to myself. Well, that [...]

Kids exercise when you exercise. Don’t believe me? I got the best call from my wife the other day regarding Gigi, our four-year-old. Kim said… I just wanted to let you know that your daughter asked if she could do the Tony and the Kids workout video. She finished up my ab workout with me, [...]
Quick guess of where the photos were taken … Subway? Wrong. Whole Foods? Wrong again. Last chance. Google Cafe? (Insert loud buzzer noise here) No my friend, that’s the picture on the wall of the Thornton’s Gas Station near my house. AHHHHH, now it makes sense, right?

Do you have problems with dairy? Maybe you didn’t think so until all the attention dairy started getting with the Vegan and Paleo diet movements. Or maybe you knew you had problems with dairy from the way it made you feel. Or better yet, the way it made you feel when you didn’t have dairy [...]
In spite of my frequent Seinfeld references (like my Organize your kitchen pantry and Fitness goals can easily be sabotaged by “special” occasions posts), I actually think Everybody Loves Raymond was better (yeah, I said it). In fact, the day-in day-out struggles of the Barone family make for one of my all-time favorite shows. Want to know how [...]

I also require every Vitamix smoothie recipe to have some kind of protein component, [...]
When asked “How much does P90X cost?” I’m always a little surprised that people flinch. “P90X cost is $120! That’s too rich for my blood,” they’ll say as they suck down their daily $4 latte (which ironically is a $120/month habit). The problem is that people don’t break down the price over time (I’ve already [...]
