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 I was originally going to write about selecting appropriate volume, both exercises and number of sets and reps, but I feel that just gets lost in the noise of the internet. People only want to read what matches their bias and argue about the things that don’t. Not many are really trying to … Continue reading How Sports Allowed Me to Deal with Complex Trauma
Written by: Kevin Cann We bend over to deadlift, we start to pull, and suddenly, we feel a sharp pain shoot down our leg causing us to stop in our tracks and drop the bar to the floor. We struggle to stand up straight and the pain is so severe that we think we just did … Continue reading Invisible Wounds and PRs
