Join the A-Team.

A-Team Athletics Online improves the strength & performance of powerlifting athletes by creating strategic and effective programs, and by providing the knowledge, guidance, focus, direction, and support that athletes need in order to win.


Inspiring Change


We seek to build strong, confident, and resilient athletes who compete and win. 

Too many new lifters are treated like underdogs. At A-Team, we are determined to change this. All of our members are treated like athletes with the potential to be world record holders. 

It's time for you to be taken seriously.


Many athletes work extremely hard year after year only to lag behind their true potential in strength sports. These athletes deserve better.

Athletes train for months, only to miss their powerlifting competition attempts and end up with a smaller total than their last meet. 

Many athletes focus on multiple goals simultaneously, only to spin their wheels and miss the mark on all of them. 

In recent years, the involvement of female athletes in strength sports has gone up from 10% to upwards of 50% with many female-only competitions selling out completely, yet female athletes do not have as many opportunities to compete at the national or world level.

Women are less likely to be taken seriously by their family and friends when beginning a strength program, and many develop greater confidence through a strong support network.

Many athletes do not have the support network at home that they need in order to be successful.

At A-Team Athletics, we want to fix this.

We want to build a community where athletes have the strength and confidence they need to make progress in the sport they love, and to win.

Achieving this goal is why we do everything that we do.


  1. Team Focused: Building relationships is everything for A-Team Athletics. It's never strictly business. Your world matters to us.

  2. Honesty & Integrity: We care about all of our team members and do our best for them every day.

  3. Reliability: We've all heard stories about lifters getting ghosted on game day. That will never be us. We will pull through for you every time. 

  4. Trust & Communication: To meet your needs in an online setting, we will meet you where you're at and work to build effective communication with you.
