Evangeline Munson- Elite Powerlifter
In May 2016 I competed at my very first powerlifting meet. It was at this meet that I had the honor of meeting and watching some of this sport's strongest competitors, among them being Tony Montgomery. Being a rookie to the sport, I was overwhelmed and by all definitions of the term, a "rookie". But Tony took the time to reach out to me after this meet; genuinely interested in helping me succeed and progress with this sport. In less than 8 months time, he's helped me add over 150lbs to my total so far through his meticulous Strength and Nutrition programming that's been catered directly to my needs through building up my weak points and helping me progress as a lifter. From bombing out at my first meet after a shaky few months of self coaching to progressing where I am now: most recently at my third competition, and second meet under Tony's coaching, going 9/9 on my lifts along with breaking 2 Washington State records- all of these are accomplishments that I credit to the patient coaching Tony has given me so far. But more importantly any coach can write you a workout; if you lift you will get stronger. But as my coach, Tony's given me more than that. He's taught me that success as an athlete comes from mindset, it comes from the day to day, it comes from sacrifices and so much more. And most importantly, he's always believed in my ability and potential as a powerlifter even when I did not. Adding well over 60lbs to both my deadlift and Squat in less than a year was cool, but finding a genuine and caring mentor in this sport has been invaluable to me!

I started working work Tony 12 weeks prior to my big debut on the World stage in Las Vegas. He provided me detailed meal plans specifically designed for my needs and made weekly adjustments. He always responded in a timely manner, even if it was what I thought was a silly question. Tony helped me cut weight while still maintaing my strength. I noticed a huge change in my everyday energy levels and performance in training. My body also made changes for the better. I had both strength and aesthetics, I looked and felt the best I have every felt. My weight cut was by far the easiest to date. With Tony’s help and guidance he led me on to win a World Championship title that day. Totaling 822 at 123 body weight. I would highly recommend his programs to any athlete looking to better their overall performance in training and nutrition. He’s the most down to earth guy I know and he truly cares for his clients and their success.
