Testimonial from Marilyn Shilkin

“My first experience with PTC was fantastic as I decided to do my first novice powerlifting comp at the start of the year Paul and Dan have been nothing but a wealth of support in training and programming.

I have been a personal trainer in Perth for around 6 years so found it refreshing to deal with extremely professional and knowledgeable staff at PTC. The wealth of knowledge and great vibes within the gym puts PTC up there with the gyms in perth for sure.

Then I was offered a spot to train under Bob Pavone one of the best Olympic lifting coaches in Perth who I had trained with many years ago at The Mill crossfit. The course was one of the best things I have done for not only my personal lifts but also teaching classes and clients. So good now I am being coached under Bob Pavone at Olympifit to lift in my first Olympic Lifting Comp in Oct this year. I would recommend PTC to beginners all the way through to the advanced. The boys do a great job and should be very proud of what the have and continue to achieve in Perth.”
