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 It gets easy to get caught up in the idea that pushing harder is always the right thing to do. Even at times knowing better I will push things harder than I should. Problem is, I am not 24 years old anymore. Our program uses submaximal reps to help stabilize adaptations. I have found … Continue reading Creating Stable Adaptations
Written by: Kevin Cann Before the pandemic of 2020 hit, I was doing most of my coaching in person. I love the atmosphere of being in person. The intensity of the environment, people yelling, and weights banging. These sounds become my beating heart in a training environment. I love sports, and even more, I love to fucking compete. As … Continue reading How Covid Changed Me as a Coach
Written by: Kevin Cann This has been a topic that haunted me for most of my coaching career up to this point. At the end of the day, I am in a results driven business. Lifters seem to come in with an expectation that progress should happen very quickly and be unlimited. As a coach do you just … Continue reading Results Driven vs Future Success
