Client Spotlight: Britney

Featured below is my incredible client, Britney. 

We’ve been working together in my online coaching program for the past 6-months and throughout out our time together she’s gotten so much stronger I’m actually concerned she’s going to be lifting more than me very soon.

In the video below you can see Britney deficit deadlifting 235lbs, squatting 180lbs, bench pressing 140lbs, and overhead pressing 85lbs.

Keep up it up, Britney!

Every day you wake up ready to work incredibly hard and do it with a big ass smile on your face. I love it. Congratulations on all of your success; I can’t wait to see what else you’ll accomplish in the months to come.

My Online Group Powerlifting Program Is Now Open for Registration!

Get Ready to DeadliftI’m wicked excited to announce that (after tons of requests) I’m officially launching my brand new group powerlifting coaching program!

An all-inclusive group training program, it’s called The Syatt Fitness TRUE STRENGTH Group Powerlifting Program and it’s specifically designed to get you strong as all hell and increase your squat, bench press, and deadlift. 

I’m pumped about this program for a number of reasons but, briefly:

1) Every participant is going to be a member of the private community forum in which you will receive a new program every month and have the ability to post questions/comments while getting my feedback on your lifting technique.

2) The best part about working in a group setting is I get to meet and develop a closer relationship with you. Plus, you’ll be able to pick my brain in the group, ask me questions, and further develop your strengths as a lifter and coach.

So if you’re interested in signing up for The Syatt Fitness TRUE STRENGTH Group Powerlifting Program just shoot me an e-mail to with “GROUP POWERLIFTING PROGRAM” in the subject line and I’ll send you all of the necessary information.

My Strength Lesson’s & Training Logs

My strength lessons and training logs are back and I’m posting them daily on Instagram! I’ve shared some brand new videos with you below but if you want more make sure to follow me on Instagram @SyattFitness

Feet Elevated Bench Press with Emphasized Eccentric

I’ve been incorporating this bench press variation regularly for the past 4-weeks to purposefully reduce leg drive and focus on building raw upper body strength. I haven’t tested a new 1RM yet but I have hit several rep PR’s and am absolutely loving how my bench is starting to feel.
