“Attended a three lift camp coached by Grant. He did an excellent job instructing a group spanning several decades at various stages of lifting progress. Grant gave specific corrections to each lifter that translated well as teaching points for all. He delivered quality advice and answers to all questions. Worth the investment.”


“Grant coached the recent squat/press/deadlift camp in Greenville. It was very well run and absolutely worth the time, effort, and money. Our class ranged in ages from early 30’s to late 60’s, but Grant was easily able to adjust coaching style as needed. The Q&A session at the end was very informative, and answered numerous programming questions and issues.”


“Grant made things easy to learn, was really invested in my progress and training and was even supportive when I was so frustrated at the heavy weight that I wanted to scream. Grant challenged me to try new things like the Power Clean and I’m so grateful for it. Grant is an amazing coach, is super fun to train with and anyone would be lucky to get to work with him!”
