Tony’s Time in the Army and SWAT
Born and raised in Miami, Florida, Tony Sentamant commenced on his journey after high school, when he enlisted in the U.S. Army. During his time in the Army, Tony learned all the necessary skills to become resilient, strong, and successful in life – building a solid foundation for his later endeavors.
After finishing his service in the Army, Tony began working as a State Correctional Officer. Shortly after, he changed his career path to become a Law Enforcement Officer, and later, a SWAT Operator.
It was during his time in SWAT when Tony gained most of his knowledge and experience in ‘real-world’ combat, tactical operations, and undercover surveillance. As a SWAT operator, Tony was involved in nearly 700 real-world operations, including working with Federal Agencies from across America on numerous cases.
In order to stay strong during his time in the Army and SWAT, Tony spent a lot of time training in the gym. As he said; “At the age of 17 when I started weightlifting, I realized how much I loved training in the gym and pushing myself to become stronger.” As the years went by, Tony’s passion for weightlifting grew stronger and stronger.

Then, after almost 2 decades of working in Law Enforcement, Tony retired from this career. From there, he decided to use the knowledge and experience he gained while working in Law Enforcement, combining it with his passion for weightlifting to start his consulting business.
Throughout the years, Tony grew his business – helping an immense number of people with his unique weightlifting and real-life combat advice.
From there, he went a step further to open video blogs, using the online platform to reach an even greater number of people.
By 2017, Tony gained the status of a social media star. His unique knowledge and experience in real-world combat scenarios, as well as weightlifting, allowed him to live-out his lifelong dream of starting his own business, which he’s since grown to an extent he never thought was possible.
“I don’t believe in standards, I make my own. I don’t believe in limits, because I have none. If you make your own rules and life a life only you understand then everyone else is living in your world and they are just watching while you’re running the show!!”
Tony’s philosophy on training is simple. He trains primarily for strength, size, and functionality. Tony believes that many people have a misconception that being big means it’s difficult to be flexible, fast, or agile.
However, Tony is a living proof that functionality and size go hand in hand. He’ll do exercises like heavy tire flips, rope climbing, pulling the car with his own body weight, etc. According to Tony, these movements work both as strength, and functional training.
