Coach Manning first fell in love with powerlifting 5 years ago and began competing on the local level. After being overweight out of high school and not sure what he wanted to do with himself training became his sense of discipline and purpose. Since then he quit his desk job and began working in the fitness industry.

Manning first started training at Adonis Granville when he decided to begin exploring the sport of Strongman and later came on board with the team. Manning loves bringing out the potential of athletes, whatever sport they may choose in the future he is a big believer in building the foundations of strength and athleticism from early on in a person’s lifting career.

Manning’s passion for lifting stems from the belief that training should be engaged with just as much on a mental level as a physical one. Bringing out the best in someone is just as much of an art as it is a science
