It’s simple. We love what we do.

We Are Defiant
We make a firm commitment to helping you reach your goals.

No shotgun blast approach to programming here. Defiant lifters are given what they need at the time that is most optimum for them. Your program is designed specifically for you, not the masses. From your main lifts to accessory movements targeted to bring up your weak points that add to your total. You are paying for coaching & competition prep, not for a one size fits all program!
