I coached both the Arizona State University and University of Arizona Boxing Clubs 1995-2001. In that period I had over 300 fighters enter the ring and compete in USA Boxing sanctioned events. While coaching the kids at his gym in Phoenix, I also competed in and won local single elimination boxing tournaments several times including the Ultimate Boxing Contest, Rage in the Cage, King of the Ring and many other elimination fights. I moved from Arizona to Illinois to be closer to my parents who both had terminal cancer. While in Illinois I trained for and competed in the Ironman Competition in Madison, Wisconsin and many other long distance events including century rides, marathons and even the World Famous 50 kilometer ski race, the Birkenbinder. I entered the United States Navy after September 11, 2001, and have proudly served ever since. I was certified by the military to perform as the Command Fitness Leader. I am a USA Boxing certified coach. With my unique background I crafted my own style of fitness that is one of a kind and works for all fitness levels.
I grew up in a rough and tough neighborhood on the west side of Chicago. My parents sent me and my three siblings to the Y to keep us on the right path. I learned how to play basketball, track, football, swimming and even archery. More importantly, I learned teamwork, respect, dedication, responsibility and commitment. The Y assisted in molding me into the person I am today- God-fearing man, father, brother, friend, role model, college graduate and athlete. I played tailback at Bolingbrook High School, running back at University of Illinois and graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Speech Communication. I went on to play in the NFL with the Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers and San Diego Chargers. Once my football career concluded, I began Touchdowns, an athlete training program to take athletes of all ages to the next level. I can truly say that I love my job. I love making a difference in athlete's lives and advancing them in their respective sport. Click HERE for more information about Antoineo.
TONY 'THE MOTIVATOR" PRIGNITZ
Tony also known in the boxing circle as the "Motivator" is a legend not only in the state of Illinois but also around the world. Tony started the North Shore Boxing Club in the early 80's that produced many champions including some professional fighters that became top ranked. He is an old school teacher of the classic "Box and Bang" style fighting and his passion for the sport is unmatched among anyone in the world.
In 2010, I started my amateur boxing career in a small gym in St Louis. I competed in the St Louis Golden Gloves in 2012. From there I taught at several clubs and finally found a great home at CONQUER that lets me use my unique style of fitness and boxing conditioning that I feel is effective and fun.
From the age of 3 years old on, my life was consumed with the sport of gymnastics. I competed as a USGF gymnast and as a varsity gymnast all four years at Libertyville High School. I spent the majority of my time in the gymnastics gym and loved every minute of it. After that concluded I transitioned all of my workouts to a regular gym (which was not nearly as fun) and began running. I worked 15+ years in the fitness industry and met some amazing people, one of which was my husband, Larry Lentz. I trained a running club for several years and loved helping progress veteran runners as well as helping non-runners become runners. I've completed several cycling races, century rides, marathons, half marathons & triathlons. I will soon be working on my new goal of completing a Half Ironman. I have also become a huge fan of hot yoga, particularly Power Vinyasa classes at Forever Om Yoga in Lake Forest. I completed my 200 hour teacher training certification at Forever Om Yoga in June 2016. Hot yoga is a great complement to all of my other tough workouts and provides some time for balance and mental clarity which is rare with the demand of raising our two young boys, Charlie & Jack.
Fitness has had an incredible impact on my life. It has been a passion of mine since I can remember. Losing my father at 13 years old only fueled my fire to live a healthy lifestyle even more. I graduated from Vernon Hills HS as a 12 sport athlete, where I participated in football, wrestling and track & Field. I then graduated from Illinois State University with a double major in kinesiology and exercise science. I am also a member of NASM and ASFA, with master certifications from both organizations.I Specialize in calisthenics, functional movement, group training and personal training. Fitness, health and wellness is my life and I am honored to be able to share it with so many people. Today's is a new day, lets make it better then yesterday.
I have always had a passion for the sweet science of boxing. I am a USA Boxing licensed coach and professional boxing manager. I hold a ISSA Personal Training Certification. I love to help new boxers as well as professional boxers reach their highest potential through mentorship, nutrition, supplementation, job placement and even financial support.
