(Coach Arian) I started powerlifting 3 1/2 years ago: state championships, titles, records, Elite standing- however I was still a novice in SO many ways and training under the model of "no pain, no gain" moving from program to program for each competition. It got the best of me (over training, multiple injuries, compromised recovery) and while I was still competing regularly, I lost my drive and love of the sport. A conversation with a fellow lifter and client of Arian's led me to one of the best decisions I've made in my lifting career! From initial contact, his professionalism and extensive knowledge was unmistakable. I felt absolutely confident in entrusting his expertise into my training. His insight, excercise selection and programming has been absolutely fantastic- I'm back to being excited to train, progressing my lifts, enthusiastic about new movements- and with the benefit of Arian's tremendous experience and direction, I look forward to future successes on the platform!
He has quite a few very talented lifters that he coaches, and I'm very much a beginner in comparison, but he has always made me feel like I'm just as important as the rest of them.
I would 100% recommend Arian as a coach and it is for this reason I have hired him for the next year. His communication is top drawer and his exercise selection is fantastic. He is able to analyse form break down and select appropriate exercises to fix the issues.
The good thing about Arian is he has been coached by many of the greats; and he applies all of their great techniques, and methods to his coaching. He listens to what works, what doesn’t, and alters things that will be best and catered to you. I would, and do recommend Arian as an Online coach, or if you are lucky enough to have him as a personal coach.
Arian called all of my attempts perfectly. I went 9 for 9 and did not have more than 5 more pounds in me on any of the lifts. I left practically nothing on the platform. As a result I brought home two silver medals and Bronze overall as well as 5 American records. He got everything out of me that I had to give on that day. I would highly recommend Arian to any serious lifter that wants to perform well at an important meet.
We were cross fitters and we wanted to make the transition into powerlifting but we were unsure how to go about doing it. Arian took us under his wing and we have been working with him ever since. Before Arian’s coaching we had no idea what we were doing. Our form was atrocious and we were just winging it. Arian changed things slowly and we never felt overwhelmed.
