Powerlifting Coaching

For serious lifters looking to increase their total, True Fitness and Nutrition offers top tier powerlifting coaching. If you are hungry to put some kilos on your lifts, and take your training to the next level, powerlifting coaching with Elliott White, Dylan Smith, Brad Couillard, or Kevin Nguyen is for you.

Performing your best at a meet is an exhilarating feeling. We know, because we compete ourselves. We know it takes a lot of work—and the right type of work—to succeed.  Good lifters are not always the strongest, and the strongest are not always good lifters.  Players make plays, and lifters make lifts, and True-FN lifters do it with polish.  You can tell a polished lifter from across the room, and all True-FN lifters show a respect for the sport, and demonstrate it on the platform.

Elliott, Dylan, Brad, and Kevin coach and lift competitively in the USAPL, the nation's premiere drug-free powerlifting federation, and the only drug-tested avenue to international competition. We have studied with the best, we lift with the best, and we impart the best program design, technical coaching, and meet preparation to lifters in the DC metro area and across the country.  True-FN is recognized as one of only two recommended training facilities by USA Powerlifting, and we are proud to represent our sport. 


TrueFN Powerlifting Coaching includes:

  • World-class sport-specific program design tailored to your needs and goals. 
  • In-person strength, conditioning and mobility workouts
  • Virtual coaching and form critique to maximize the effect of your solo workouts
  • A team environment for training and worry-free handling on game day


“Working with Dylan, my bench went from 220 to 300 (I've wanted to get 300 for so long!) back squat from 295 to 400 and deadlift from 315 to 450.”

— Michael L.

“When other trainers will tell me my deadlift or squat or bench is "great," Elliot will tell me four specific things I'm doing really well and two things to really work on.”

— Amy L.

“In January 2014, I couldn't do one bench push up. This year my best squat was 180lbs and I finally passed a mental barrier by benching 100lbs for one rep.”

— Katherine D.
