Powerlifting Coach & Trainer

Paul Attard is the owner and head coach of SPC Performance Lab.

Paul has been coaching since 2014 and has worked with all different types of people. From first timers learning the basics, all the way up to the experienced power-lifting competitors. He tailors his approach depending on the needs, goals and experience of the individual.

Paul has extensive theoretical and practical coaching experience. He has completed a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise & Sports Science with First Class Honours, competed and won multiple natural body-building shows, power-lifting competitions and held an Australian power-lifting record.

Paul’s primary focus is to give people the tools to become self-reliant. He believes clients should understand why they are doing things, opposed to just following what they’ve been told to do. This allows clients to not rely on someone external to make training decisions and develops the ability to problem solve.
