Powerlifting Training

In the last few years, powerlifting has exploded as a sport. I have been on the receiving end of some wonderful coaching myself. Therefore I am well equipped to dispense performance boosting powerlifting training and coaching to both male and female lifters. I possess the skills to be able to dramatically increase your strength and power.

My expertise in the technicalities of lifting has improved dramatically. Being a qualified teacher, I am able to cater to different learning styles easily. I place a strong emphasis on technique and mobility work in my coaching. I study and learn the lifting style of my clients, I have attention to detail, and will convey messages individually to produce your best results.

I am very proud to be one of two Recomp qualified assessors. Meaning that coaches who wish to gain their Recomp certificate can have their strength tests assessed by me. I am also a qualified referee with both CAPO and GPC. I believe that a strength coach must have lifted heavy to teach clients how to lift heavy.

I am so passionate about powerlifting that I recently invested in a competition bench press and monolift, plus a range of specialty powerlifting bars for my training studio. It is important to train for your powerlifting event under appropriate competition equipment. If you are shopping around for a powerlifting or strength coach, take a read of this first!

Become a woman of Strong Inner Resolve



Ingrid takes a comprehensive approach to coaching, ensuring that the lifter understands why they are being directed in a certain way, and providing cues that work for the individual.


1-on-1 Sessions

A 1-on-1 technique session is a fantastic way to begin your journey to greater strength, through improved efficiency in movement patterns and mental cues. In a technique session with Ingrid, the safest, most efficient technique will be covered on the 3 power-lifts – squat, bench press and deadlift. Alternatively, this can be tailored to focus on an individual lift, should you choose to.


Online Coaching

Online coaching is a wonderful and comprehensive alternative to in-person coaching. Coaching plans can be tailored for any goal, with a key technical focus on the 3 power-lifts – squat, bench press and deadlift. We have clients from all over Australia, as well as internationally so distance is not a problem.
