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.

I think when most people hear the term skill they think of some specific sports aspect. In powerlifting they may think about technique and/or the actual strength that the lifter displays. … Continue reading Attention is a Complex Skill
Written by: Kevin Cann Powerlifting is viewed as an individual sport at the end of the day. However, no one gets great alone. We all need help along the way. This can come from a coach, a mentor, or training partners. Powerlifting in this sense can be a great community. Powerlifting is also a sport that we compete ourselves. Yes, … Continue reading Silencing Your Inner Critic
Written by: Kevin Cann When we all start off as coaches, we have this fascination with writing the perfect program. This usually leads to us collecting more and more data, pumping out graphs, and explaining every mishap with the logic of these programs. Now, I collect data that I feel is important. This just happens to be … Continue reading Perhaps the Most Important Skill to Train
