Powerlifting in Ottawa – From Novice to competitive lifter – work with supervised coaching Improve your bench press – deadlift – squat. Small groups

Our Powerlifting mission at Hostyle

To teach as many people who are interested in Powerlifting to do so effectively and safely!

No doubt, powerlifting is the big rage right now, and rightly so!

The 3 classic lifts

The Squat

The Bench Press

The Deadlift

Build power and strength like no other form of training.

But Powerlifting also presents a problem for many men and women (yes I said women!).

Most newbie lifters are either afraid to train these lifts due to intimidation of the unknown or fear of getting hurt.

or Worse yet

They start working on the big 3 and they learn incorrectly either on their own or with personal trainers who think they can teach it even though they don’t know how to do it properly themselves.

Taught by Coaches who powerlift and compete

I call it the personal trainer’s dilusion – That’s the trainer that will tell the client they can train them for powerlifting to get the sale, then look it up on youtube later.

Our powerlifting coaches have years of experience training, competing and coaching powerlifting.

Our Powerlifting Mission

We focus on

  • Mobility
  • Form
  • Technique
  • Execution

We never focus on the amount of weight a client lifts at first, we want to teach the best habits, discover the lifters weaknesses first and address those.


To do this properly we have developed different levels of programming

The Powerlifting 101 Series.

These are 6 week beginner level group classes that take someone with little to no powerlifting experience and teach them the basics – mobility – technique – basic strength prep.

These are small groups 8 -10 lifters that are coach lead and supervised


Warm ups

Each workout starts with a mobility based warm up to prepare the body to move better abd perform safely

The Workout

Each workout progresses weekly though a 6 week program – building skill sets and improving the body’s mobility – functionality and strength and performance on that particular lift.

Cool Down

Each workout has a specific cool down to build better flexibility and recovery.
