Precision Powerlifting Systems is based out of Boston, Mass. Head Coach Kevin Cann leads the team through individualized programming leading up to local, regional, and national 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 have been coaching a long time, but I have been in powerlifting now for 5 years. This is not a lot of time, but … Continue reading A Letter to My Younger Self
Written by: Kevin Cann Over the course of the last 4-5 years we have gone from running a very “Sheiko-esque” program, to switching gears a bit and making it more intensity focused. Don’t get me wrong, there are still lots of influences from Sheiko within our programs. I still am big on technique … Continue reading My Implementation of “Speed Work”
Written by: Kevin Cann I have officially been involved in the sport of powerlifting for 5 years now. I literally had to do the math a few times because I did not believe it. The older I get the faster that time seems to move. My daughter is somehow 11 years old too! … Continue reading Technique + Strength + Skill, Oh My
