What is Online Coaching or Online Personal Training?

Online coaching puts you in constant communication with a professional coach, who will design your training program, help you learn correct and safe technique, and monitor your progress.
You’ll learn from the passionate TPS experts here in the Boston area who routinely help even accomplished athletes shatter their own records.

Online coaching is great for anyone, anywhere, who is:

  • looking for fat loss, muscle gain, or both
  • do not live near TPS yet want personal training from our coaches
  • bored with or not getting results from your current training program
  • ready for the next level of fitness
  • dubious of expensive fitness trends that certify their coaches in a weekend and don’t care about scientific credibility, safety, or your individual needs and goals
  • interested in or already competing in Powerlifting, Strongman, Olympic Weightlifting


Don’t just believe us, read what clients say:

I heard about TPS through another member doing remote/online training at the time and then I participated multiple Strongman Saturdays. I had got a taste of how knowledgeable and professional they were and knew I would love to be a part of that community. 

I contacted them about doing online training because I was a few months out from a powerlifting meet and suddenly found myself without a coach. As a fitness professional myself I know how important good coaching and solid guidance is. 

I was put in contact with one of their online coaches, Russ, and was impressed immediately.

I completed the preliminary evaluation videos and Russ gave me great feedback and told me the direction he wanted to take my training. We talked once a week via phone and usually would touch base through out the week via email. I recorded sections of my training sessions and we would review the videos together. Every time we talked I walked away with valuable instruction for the next session. 

As an athlete Russ taught me to value and respect my accessory work just as much the big lifts. I gained a great amount of general fitness and lost inches all over my body. I crushed my powerlifting meet, took first in my weight and age class and participated in a second where I did the same. I live close enough that he was able to come to the meets and be my handler. Having him there made the experience seamless and so much less stressful. His stoic and clam demeanor gave me all the confidence I needed. I just kept thinking “ If Russ said I could- I must be able to!”

However what was most unexpected was what I learned and gained as fitness professional- and this is what I value most about my experience. Working with clients in person can be difficult enough, but remotely is a whole other story. I learned numerous cues and techniques that I will use for a long time. 

Russ is an incredible coach and I cannot recommend him and the team at TPS enough.
