Peak Power has one of the leading powerlifting facilities in Canada to go along with its world-class equipment and coaching. Peak Power's Powerlifting programs are designed in a progressive manner to ensure the development of optimal technique and skill. Programs are developed independently and focus on developing strength in the three lifts of powerlifting: bench press, squat, and deadlift.

This was the first bench press team award in the Canadian Powerlifting Union history. He has coached numerous athletes to national titles in both 3-lift Powerlifting and Bench Press. Current athletes that Michael coaches have held 2 World Records, 5 Commonwealth Records, 22 National Records and over 60 Provincial Records.

ONLINE PERSONAL POWERLIFTING PROGRAMMING

Athletes of all levels need guidance with sport specific strength programming. Many of the "online" powerlifting programming specialists are self-proclaimed, with no credentials or formal education. Peak Power is one of the only scientifically based strength facilities that use a combined 26 years of strength coaching and teaching to create and implement their programs. We use a variety of periodization methods to create programs proven to help increase your totals on the platform.
