The Top Strength Coaches in San Luis Obispo County
Andrew Wickham
SLO Strong Founder

Be the Strongest Human You Can Be.

Strength isn't just physical, it's not just mental, it's an all encompassing characteristic of human behavior and what makes you who you are.  I believe that the stronger you are physically, the stronger you will be mentally, psychologically, emotionally, and as a human in general. I've spent my life pursuing different avenues of fitness: Football, Baseball, Triathlons, Spartan Races, Powerlifting, and Strongman.  I've been in shape and out of shape.  My experience through life going from fit to fat to fit again helps me help you achieve all your strength goals.

Successfully competing in Powerlifting and Strongman requires strategy and experience to achieve the desired result. Every athlete performs better with the guidance and supervision of an experienced coach. My time training in dedicated facilities and competing at local, international, and pro meets has enabled me to leverage that knowledge in pursuit of the same goals for my athletes and teammates. SLO Strong has been my family for the last 3 years upon moving to this area and we are always available to assist local athletes in the gym and on the platform.
