TIM TRAM

Coach Farncombe was recommended to me as a prestigious S&C coach. Within 6 weeks, I competed in my first competition winning the All English Championships. He helped me do this through teaching the importance of body biomechanics and techniques which enabled me to perform stronger lifts, I was able to lift up to 15% on my total with almost no strength work in a very short time.

IPF Lifter PELIN BAYLIK - BRITISH, EUROPEAN AND WORLD CHAMPION

Before my first ever powerlifting competition I was told by my therapists I would never lift enough to be a competitive powerlifter, Lawrence said to me 'forget about any limitations others put on you, no one can tell you what you can and can’t achieve take it from me'. Since then I have competed at the highest level of powerlifting winning too many British championships to count getting Bronze/Silver and gold medals at the IPF 2015-2016 world championships.

NATASHA GROSHER - POWER LIFTER

I had a good athletic base from competing as a junior, but did not achieve my potential in sprinting, I showed an interest in power lifting, then my coach, Lawrence Farncombe really gave me help and pushed me to achieve a great deal in a very short period of time. Within 2 years I won silver in the British raw power-lifting championship and set a record in the squat event.

JOEY MALIC - POWER LIFTER

I always wanted to compete in power- lifting but was not necessarily the most gifted when it came to relative strength. Needless to say I had a hunger and with coach’s knowledge, help and sometimes downright meanness he really helped me gain the strength I needed to win several divisional championships and place 4th at the British Championships. I can’t wait for my next comp.

PAWEL KRAMER - POWER LIFTER

Thank you Lawrence you have literally taken me from a strong guy in the gym and made me an elite level bench presser and a world champion, this would have not been possible without your help as a coach, and with your continued help I’m looking forward to our domination of other federations.

Emily Williams

I can honestly say Lawrance is one of the most passionate and dedicated coaches I know.
As well as programming all my training, with his extensive knowledge, he has taught me how to perfect my technique in all three lifts in such a short period of time. He has a specific eye for detail, which has really helped with my progress in my first year of powerlifting.
Sessions with Lawrance are always filled with a balance of focus, hard work, laughs and banter. This is what has made learning from him incredibly easy!

IPF Lifter Jason Coultman

Strength Coach Farncombe's expertise has quite literally taken me from being a guy with a passion for lifting to a national and international level lifter within a year. I have learnt more in 9 months of being coached than in over 3 years of full time studying sport science and strength and conditioning.

IPF Lifter Nate shaw

Coach Farncombe has a reputation, in powerlifting, as being one of, if not the best coaches in Britain. After working with him for only 10 months I have won the All England championships, setting two national records and the Commonwealth Championships. And achieving a ranking of 9th in Europe and the World Championships. I cannot stress how pleased I am with my progress under his coaching.

IPF Lifter Sion Hughes

After a successful career as a junior lifter my body was quite literally falling apart, Coach Farncombe's extensive knowledge and experience has helped quite literally put me back together. Coach Farncombe's extensive coaching on the fundamental techniques of all three competitions lifts now means I can tap into my full potential in the safest most effective manner to lift seriously big weights.

IPF Lifter Andrew Daws

After only a few months of coaching from Strength Coach Farncombe, we re-worked my squat mechanics and I saw incredible improvements allowing me to win a gold medal at the European championships in the squat in my first every international competition.

Daniella Summers

I’m a newcomer to the powerlifting but love this sport! Under Coach Farncombe's guidance my technique and numbers keep going up. I have learnt so much in such a little space of time, which is invaluable to me as a personal trainer. Coach Francombe’s knowledge of training methodologies is truly mind blowing.
