Precision Powerlifting Systems is based out of Boston, Mass. Head Coach Kevin Cann leads the team through individualized programming leading up to local, regional, national, and international level powerlifting meets.
Kevin is dedicated to his work. He is a trustworthy and reliable coach with a sharp sense of humor. His coaching style is very straightforward; no frills. His attention to technique was evident from day one — and that is really important to me!
I’ve been working with Kevin for about 16 months now and just have to say thank you for everything that he has done for me as a lifter. Working with Kevin and his Sheiko programming has brought consistency to my lifts and confidence to me as a person. I’ve traveled to nationals for the first time and competed with and against some of the best lifters in the country, and am planning my first trip to the Arnold. With the way we train, I know every time I step under the bar I am prepared and ready.
And while I love having Kevin as my coach, the best part of training with him is being a part of the PPS team. Powerlifting is inherently an individual sport – but PPS has developed into a tight-knit group of lifters who constantly support each other, go to meets together, and are just honestly good friends. We are working professionals who are also competitive lifters, and working together to be strong on the platform and in life.

Written by: Kevin Cann The last year has been pretty rough for a lot of us. I had a team of over 50 strong, 10 of which were qualified for USAPL Nationals. We were cruising right along as a team. Then the pandemic hit and I saw a large portion of my roster quit the sport of powerlifting … Continue reading My Personal and Coaching Philosophy
Written by: Kevin Cann Powerlifting seems to be in this fad of “evidence based” coaching and tracking every piece of data, to “individualize” the program for each lifter. The internet eats this shit up too. Why wouldn’t they? It is much easier to just pay someone for a fancy program than it is to actually develop the skills … Continue reading High Performance Cannot Be Found in a Spreadsheet
Written by: Kevin Cann If you are a coach, I am sure that you have heard this line before, “This is the technique that works for me.” I have participated in high level athletics my entire life and never have I seen “athletes” so keen on telling the coach what to do. In all of my other … Continue reading Understanding Individualism in Movement
