Become a more effective strength coach

Desert Barbell Strength Coach Certification

Accredited by REPS UAE for 12 CPD points

Our strength coach certifications draw on a decade of experience built on 1000s of coaching hours and handling strength athletes at local and international competitions.

We’ve taken athletes from total beginners to the competition podium and now we want to share that knowledge. Our goal is to help you develop into a more effective strength coach and athlete by establishing universal truths and giving you tools to work with everyone from total beginners to advanced athletes.

Why do it?

  • Have greater confidence in coaching the squat, bench press and deadlift by having the tools and knowledge to coach all three lifts to lifters of all experience levels
  • Become more marketable as a strength coach and powerlifting coach by having the Desert Barbell stamp of approval
  • Increase your ability to on-board, coach and retain powerlifting clients by having access to Desert Barbell resources
