Hi. I’m Meghan O’Connell, a former boxer and now a powerlifter (squat, bench and deadlift). My goal for you is: solid foundations, less pain, and more strength.

Exciting update! As of November 2022, I’ve started working at Main and 51st, out of Sunset Community Centre. It feels great to find a true neighbourhood place to work out of now in these (basically/almost) post-Covid times. The facility is spacious and well laid out, with lots of natural light and a nice quiet vibe for good focus. The amenities that may well matter most to you and I include a squat rack, kettlebells, and a Concept 2 rower (and there is a way to deadlift if the squat rack is occupied)… plus battle ropes for the adventurous!
