Platform Strong is an in person and online based coaching method that offers affordable and effective training and nutrition programming.

We specialise in developing the three main lifts used in powerlifting: Squat, Bench Press, and Deadlift. Our personalised coaching revolves around our core belief that technique comes before numbers.

Our team of experienced coaches are comprised of high level Powerlifting athletes, Jen Smith & David Stearman who will ensure the sustainability of our team members’ lifting journeys by making sure that each of our clients is performing lifts correctly and that proper nutrition is followed.

    "Love these guys! Dave & Jen live and breath powerlifting and it shows! Highly recommend them if you want to learn how to lift with great technique and get strong".

  • Kirby Gartner

    "At the start of the year I refused to lift heavy weights in the fear of looking ‘manly’ and dreaded going to the gym.

    I am now benching twice a week and squatting and deadlifting my own body weight while absolutely loving every minute of it. I have learnt so much from Dave in the last few months and I couldn’t thank him enough for his wisdom and constant support. There’s truly no better feeling than feeling strong and I can’t wait to keep achieving my goals ”
