aboc PowerHaus Strength Training

The PowerHaus difference.


At the aboc PowerHaus we're focused on performance. The 'Haus is a Strength and Conditioning facility.

The 'Haus is not a weight-loss gym, not a bodybuilders gym and not a 'toning gym'.

Our aim is to make you stronger, faster and more powerful so you can perform at your best. Our background is in preparing athletes for sporting performance and that's what we do and what we care about.

Our staff have backgrounds in preparing athletes for sport and are all at least level one Strength and Conditioning coaches with the Australian Strength and Conditioning Association and our staff are qualified as coaches in specific sports as well.  We're coaches, not personal trainers or gym rats.  This means we concentrate on the things that matter to your sporting performance - speed, strength, power and relevant metabolic conditioning.

At the Powerhaus we believe in quality strength training and functional training, you will not find any isolation machines, “silly bullshit” or mirrors at the 'Haus. We teach major movements using barbells, bumper plates, chinup and pullup beams, ropes, rings, lifting platforms and chalk.

We can teach you the Big Five exercises (Squats, Presses, Benchpresses, Deadlifts and Power Cleans) safely and with form that has been shown to increase strength and power for peak sporting performance.  We can develop training plans for you that focus on your sporting development and give you the edge you need to perform. Or we can leave you alone and you can use our stuff. If you've been training for strength and performance for some time you'll know what works for you and we respect your own plans. Our facility isn't 'poseur-friendly' so you'll be able train comfortably without being bothered by us or the usual gym-rat types.
