Strength & Speed Personal Trainer Specialist Course

Agatsu Strength & Speed Specialist

2023 Schedule

 Sept 8-10 Toronto Level 1 REGISTER
Oct 21-22 Edmonton Level 1 REGISTER


Most conversations about lifting and programming really boil down to personal experiences and go something like “Do X program and Y lifts, because they worked well for Z. If that doesn’t work, try something else.”

The Agatsu Strength and Speed course is not just a list of programs and exercises to blindly follow. It is designed to give participants the tools needed to understand what goes into designing a program from the ground up, as well as technical training to break down the major barbell lifts and a wide variety of exercises for speed development.

Don’t just learn the “what”, learn the “why”.

This is no ordinary powerlifting-based course, nor is it any ordinary programming course. It’s the unique perspective Agatsu is known for worldwide, now brought to the traditional weight room.
