ATTENTION: Serious Lifters, Coaches & Athletes

From: Coach John Gaglione

Dear Friends,

I am VERY excited to hold next STRENGTH  seminar for everyone who has been following my articles and videos on the web, or perhaps you’ve heard about my methods and the results they produce in the Long Island area and you want to learn more. This seminar is going to focus on my personal bread and butter and is all about getting SUPER STRONG!

Strength really is the foundation for everything else you do. The stronger you are the more muscle mass you can put on and the more powerful you can potential become. The problem is most people don’t know how to do it the RIGHT way and they experience set back, plateaus, and even injuries.

This seminar is really going to focus on the best methods for getting YOU STRONGER. It the Gaglione Strength Powerlifting Seminar. This seminar is going to show you how to make you a stronger man whether you are an athlete, a weekend warrior or a competitive lifter looking for that special EDGE!

Learning more and educating yourself is what separates those who experience GREAT success vs those who only experience mediocre success. Learning powerful STRENGTH training techniques and methods to give you the upper hand over the competition is what this seminar is going to be all about, along with plenty of time for open Q & A to ensure that I answer every single question and concern YOU may have.

In a nut shell…. I’m 100% committed to YOUR success.

If you’re as committed as I am to achieving success and getting STRONGER, then this seminar is for YOU.

But, I can only accommodate so many people to ensure you get the attention you deserve
. I’ve been to over-crowded seminars and I was just another face in the crowd, missing out on learning valuable information because it was too crowded and the focus was on quality, NOT quantity.

I won’t allow that happen….. Like I said, I am 100% committed to YOUR success.

And, if you’re wondering why you should listen to me, here’s a quick bio before I tell you what you’ll experience at The Gaglione Strength Powerlifting Seminar

John Gaglione is a strength coach out of Long Island, New York. John trains a wide variety of athletes at his facility located in Farmingdale New York. He specializes improving maximal strength for all athletes and “average joes”. He currently leads a powerlifting team of over 40 members 21 of which have achieved national ranking.

John has also written many strength and conditioning articles for major online publications such as Elite Fitness Systems, Testosterone Nation, One Result, and Men’s Health.

An avid strength athlete John also has a lot of “under the bar experience” and has competed in the sport of powerlifting for nearly a decade years. His best competition equipped lifts are a 850 squat, 575 Bench, and a 640 Deadlift. 

Gaglione Strength 2013 Nationally Ranked LiftersIn 2013 Team Gaglione Strength achieved 9 nationally ranked lifters. One year later the team is up to 18 nationally ranked lifters! During this seminar you will learn the methods that helped sky rocket the team’s success!

During the Gaglione Strength Powerlifting Seminar on March 7th, You and ONLY 19 Other people Will….

  • Discover the magic behind creating programs that deliver powerful results in literally half the time. No more wasting time, energy and effort on useless exercises and workouts that take too long and simply do NOTHING to give you the competitive advantage. You will learn simply methods to effectively learn and TEACH all of the main barbell movements as well as some unique ones to really enhance your strength development!

  • Are you searching to learn sport specific methods to improve strength for YOU or YOUR athletes? Because only 20 attendees will be allowed to attend this seminar, there will be plenty of time to address specific concerns and questions for different situations, different athletes and different age groups and how to achieve these specific performance traits. Ask anything and I’ll have the answer to help you achieve your goals.

  • Wondering how to mange YOUR health when you are training extremely heavy? This is critical and can be a make or break factor in achieving success or achieving burn out and missing out on BIG PR. You will learn proper warm up and injury prevention techniques to keep you healthy and keep hitting records! This section alone is going to be worth the investment of the seminar!

  • Looking for other like minded individuals to connect with to get more ideas from or to train with? When small seminars like this happen the most motivated individuals tend to gather together. This is often how training partners and friendships are formed to elevate ALL of your success together as a team.

  • Discover How to avoid the MOST Fatal flaws that cause lifters to get injured and miss out on achieving their TRUE potential.

  • Open Q & A time at the end of the seminar to address your specific questions, concerns and needs.

  • Get an up front and personal look at exactly how I train my team get ready for a contest and how they achieve success so quickly. You’ll have the same road map I use and you will be able to put these methods to use immediately

Why should you trust me?

I will let our results do the talking. Besides having nearly a decade of competition and coaching experience the success of my team speaks for itself. Everyone from the average to elite has achieved PRs with us. Meet some of our most successful team members below. They once started out JUST LIKE YOU! Nearly all of these lifters below came in without a nationally ranked total (only one was established already).

Mark Greenstein nationally ranked 1900 total at 220 and world ranked 1825 total at 198

Mark came to our gym as a crossfitter with a 495 squat and 550 deadlift. Now he has a 1900 total at 220 and is currently ranked in the top ten ALL TIME in the 198 class with an 1825 raw total.  That’s top ten in the history of the sport and in the world! His 1825 total is one of the best total pound for pound in the country by formula!


Dom Minnici Nationally Ranked 2000 Raw total at 308

Doms’ 1st meet every was 1505. With our methods at his latest meet he squatted 800 and total 2000 raw! His squat is one of the best in the country by formula.

Savannah Minnici Nationally Ranked 132 Women’s Class

Savannah first came to us looking to get in shape. She has no experience with competitive athletics and is a hair dresser during the day. With hard work she now has one of the top total in the 132 weight class in the nation showing our methods work for women and everyday people not just elite athletes or genetic freaks.

Sandy Tepper #1 Multiply Lifter at 165 in the Country and nationally ranked raw total

Last, but certainly not least Sandy Tepper came to us already with a top total in the nation. With our team’s guidance Sandy is now the top 165 equipped lifter in the country with his 1825 total at the Westside Pro meet showing no matter what level you are currently at we can get you better! Elite or novice we can help you out!
