Arian currently competes, coaches and judges as part of USA Powerlifting. He has obtained the Senior International Coach certification through USA Powerlifting, been an Assistant Coach on several National Teams and is now the Head Coach of the Sub-Junior and Junior Raw National Team. Arian is heavily involved in all aspects of USA Powerlifting as he is also a member of the Coaching Committee and Raw Committee.
Arian’s lifters have done exceptionally well at all levels of the sport as he has Top 3 finishers at USAPL Raw Nationals, NAPF North American Championships, IPL Worlds and Raw Unity Meet. He has also had multiple USAPL Raw National Champions who have gone on to represent USA at the IPF Raw World Championships, the premiere powerlifting competition for raw lifting. His lifters range from teenage to masters and first time competitors to veterans of the sport.
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.
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.
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.
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.
