He has been able to work with many of the top lifters in the industry and to be learning alongside him has been one heck of an experience with his knowledge on programming, technique analysis, and powerlifting in general
Arian took away all of the anxiety that goes along with having to make decisions at a big meet. I had to think about nothing but lifting the weight on the bar. Until someone does that for you, you have no idea how beneficial it is and Arian is a real pro in that regard.
When it comes to looking for a coach, you want someone who is accessible, provides feedback and analysis of your lifts, and treats you no different than they would their world-level elite athlete, or beginner lifter. Arian checks off these requirements and more! I’ve been with Arian for almost 2 years now and through setbacks and surgery, he has provided adjustments to weekly (and even daily) workouts, is available for instant feedback and updates, and takes his job (and your prep) seriously. If you want a real coach that won’t send you cookie cutter programs, or is only available during certain hours on certain days, give Arian a try. He is fully committed to your long term growth as a lifter.
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.
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.
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.
