Anthony Califano


Anthony Califano, known around here as Coach, is a fantastic example of the Strength Happens method in action. He is a high school wrestling coach and a very busy man. While he has many responsibilities, he doesn’t let them take away from training here at Strength Happens. He makes time between his coaching sessions to come in to the gym, making his own health a priority. Even when he is extremely busy, mid season, he shows up for himself.
