COACH ALASTAIR MACNICOL
SENIOR COACH AND HEAD OF THE QUANTUM POWERLIFTING TEAM
Alastair has a BA in Health Studies from Queens University and has competed in a variety of sports including track, rugby and cheerleading.
He's coached at Quantum CrossFit since 2011, where he shares his love for strength and fitness. He also runs the Quantum Powerlifting Program.
If you want to get functionally strong, work with Alastair. He is one of the most technical and knowledgeable lifters in Canada.
He is currently an elite powerlifter in the uber-competitive 220 pound class. As of this posting he holds the Canadian deadlift record at 760lbs as well as best lifts of 645 in the squat, 410 in the bench press and an 1802 total.
He has competed in and medaled at some of the most prestigious international competitions including the WPC World Championships and Raw Unity.
Despite this success, he wasn't always a strong guy. Like a lot of people, Alastair spent many years lifting weights in high school and university without making much progress. Finally, he refined his training methods until he discovered what truly works. Now he travels the country teaching powerlifting seminars to share his unique methods for developing strength and fitness.
