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.

I had a structure of the way that the programs went, and we stayed bound to … Continue reading Training as a Thought Process
Written by: Kevin Cann The world is a complex place. In fact, the theory that attempts to understand the complexity of the world we live in is actually called “complex theory.” I had read a few books on chaos theory and then found Per Bak’s book titled, “How Nature Works.” This book … Continue reading Skewed Distribution of Outcomes
Written by: Kevin Cann We live in a world where everyone just regurgitates the words of their favorite people. This is not just with powerlifting, but just everything in general. Earth is just one giant echo chamber. No one tries to learn for themselves anymore. They say they do, but they aren’t. People … Continue reading The Importance of Learning for Yourself
Written by: Kevin Cann I am going to write about a very difficult topic for me today. Sometimes you need to stand where you are uncomfortable and put yourself out there to be the change that you want to see in the world. I have written a few articles this week about my … Continue reading My Story of Hate
