Merinda O’Brien

Powerlifting & Strength Coach

Following 15+ years working and studying in a corporate setting, in 2016 I decided to take a leap of faith and begin a career truly meaningful to me.

Fast forward to 2021 and I have the privilege of being part of helping others feel stronger and more confident on a daily basis. Lifting has changed my life and it can change yours!

My focus is on performance and what our amazing bodies can do. We all come in different shapes and sizes, have had different life experiences and have unique mental and physical limits , so my approach to each and every client/athlete is individual.

If you are looking for a coach who understands the demands of competition (through direct experience – I currently compete in Powerlifting), is authentic and will not try to lock you into something you don’t need and has an insatiable appetite to learn all things lifting, then let me know!

Best Lifts (60kg)
