There’s a common misconception that powerlifting training differs vastly from physique training. Yes, some training variables must be modified to maximise strength or physique improvements. 

However, there’s no reason you can’t train for both goals when structured correctly. Our online coaching helps people increase their strength while improving their physique. After all, what’s the point of being strong if we look like potatoes? We can help with;

– Lifting technique
– Improving strength
– Physique improvements
– Nutrition guidance
– Getting over plateaus

Who is online powerlifting coaching suited to?

Online powerlifting coaching can suit both beginner or experienced lifters who want to get stronger on the squat, bench press and dead-lift whilst improving the appearance of their physique.

Strength goals of people can vary (but are not limited to);

  • Want to improve overall strength
  • Want to get stronger on the squat dead-lift and bench press but have no interest in entering a competition
  • Compete in your first powerlifting competition
  • Improve upon your previous powerlifting performance
  • Become a competitive high-level power-lifter

All whilst improving your physique. We combine strength with hypertrophy training to get the best of both worlds (improve strength whilst building a better physique)

Online powerlifting coaching that is customised

Why we don't use
coaching systems

People aren’t robots and shouldn’t be restricted to particular training or coaching systems.

Instead, we understand training theory and concepts and will apply evidence-based knowledge and practical experience to your individual response to the training program and nutrition advice we construct for you.

Programs are continually modified and refined according to the individual rather than following a particular set of training system rules. You’re an individual, and your program needs to be individualised to you.

Powerlifting coaching reviews

"I underwent a training schedule with Paul for over 12 months and it was an exceptional journey and would recommend anyone who is serious about healthspan to consider using Paul’s expertise.

I wholeheartedly recommend Paul to anyone seeking a dedicated, knowledgeable, and results-driven coach. His expertise has the power to transform not just your body but also your entire approach to fitness and well-being. I am truly grateful for the positive impact they have had on my life."
"I had been training for a few years before getting coached by Paul Attard online. My goals were to increase muscle mass and symmetry to compete in women’s physique. I wanted a coach to optimise my training to maximise my time and energy spent in the gym."
"I was having issues cutting weight for the competitions. I would typically sit a few kilograms over my weight class and then will water cut in the last week to make weight. This would result in poor performance on competition day as water cutting was heavily affecting my strength. I wanted to find a coach that could help me with nutrition to get leaner whilst maintaining strength and improving his physique visually."
