They are hard working, intelligent, and thoughtful and well learned and spoken in the area of coaching the powerlifts. If you are in the area or in need of two very good coaches please look into this.”, Paul Carter (Lift-Run-Bang)

 

Testimonial from Brooke Martin

“Wow, what an amazing weekend guys. Thank you so much for driving the 6hrs and taking the time away from your lives and your other clients to come help us all have a better understanding of Powerlifting as a sport! How amazing it was to feel a part of the PTC team and be helping my friends from Kalgoorlie feel the passion powerlifting can evoke. You can tell that powerlifting means a lot to Paul and yourself and that you live and breathe not only the sport but helping the rest of us achieve our absolute best potential! So much excitement for the future as part of the team and also to use what I have learnt to improve my personal lifts but also my knowledge as a coach at Crossfit Kalgoorlie #ptceducation”.
