Weighed in a 120.2 yesterday. This has been my goal weight since I started this journey. Wanted to take a minute to brag on Aaron Thomas for writing my nutrition and training program. Dropping 14 pounds and not only maintaining but improving strength is not an easy task and we’ve managed to do both. No fancy tricks, drinks, or quick fixes, just methodical, steady, healthy loss and smart training. Working with Aaron has given me invaluable tools that will serve me well beyond my powerlifting career and that is the biggest win! Plus that whole being 32, having two children and abs isn’t so bad either.”
(Note: Jennifer went on to set a PR total of +30 pounds at a lower weight class (114) and took the #2 spot overall for her weight class with a 370 squat (wraps), 200 bench, and 375 deadlift for a 940 total.)Jennifer Millican Powerlifter
Today is a happy day. I hit a milestone for me and repped 165×3. I failed this multiple times a few weeks ago and was beyond frustrated. My trainer kept telling me to trust the process so I tried to keep my mind in the right place. Thanks Aaron Thomas for sticking it out with me.”
(Note: Karen recently PRed with a 385lb squat, 185 paused bench, and 400 deadlift.)Karen Delaney
Frequently Asked Questions

How do clients communicate with you?
Generally, communication with clients is done through email; however, communication can also occur over the phone if the client so chooses.
What types of clients do you generally work with (athletes, gen. pop.)?
Coach Aaron works with a wide array of clients; however, most clients are powerlifters, bodybuilder/physique competitors, and football players.
What's your planning process for clients?
The client plays a major role in the planning process. First, Coach Aaron will need information on specific goal, training age, recent training history, and how many days a week a client can lift. Sometimes it is not feasible for someone to lift 6 days per week. Clients also wake up, train, and sleep at different times of the day, and their programming will reflect this. Any service will also include discussions on goal setting, both short and long term. This allows Coach Aaron to set up a periodized training plan to set them on the best path for solid results. Once the program is completed, Coach Aaron will send it out to the client and let the client look over the program and make sure it is satisfactory.
