World Class Accessibility and Adaptability. I trained online with Josh for the last 7 of my 20-year Marine Corps career.  I could write how his tactical athlete programming helped me succeed in all personal and military goals but his impressive list of clients, books, and testimonials already speak for themselves.  What makes Josh stand out, and impresses me to this day, is his accessibility and adaptability.  Training with Josh online, you can communicate directly with a leading industry expert from anywhere in the world.  I’ve sent Josh videos to critique and emails with questions from literally the other side of the planet. From an adaptability standpoint, Josh never tried to fit me into a training template.  He starts with my goals and then uses his extensive experience to write personalized, weekly programming.  When we find something that works - we stick with it.  If something isn’t working then we adjust or change it.  Additionally, being a Marine twice a year I shift goals toward our “Combat Fitness Test” and “Personal Fitness Test.”  Josh took the time to learn what the unique requirements were for each test and tailored a specific plan for each one.  In summary, training with Josh online means your daily training partner is a world-class expert; You will achieve results

"Josh Bryant, hands down, is the best strength coach in the country."

Tony Sentmanat "Real World Tactical"

Tyson Morrissy

“After coming back from some time off Strongman and some travel I was having trouble being self directed. I sought out a man whose reputation proceeds him, even across the globe here in Aus, and that was Josh to help put me back on track. 

Over 12 weeks we set a base and pushed from that, during this program I pulled an 837lbs Deadlift and came 3rd in the Official Strongman Worlds Strongest Man u105K.

Joshs programming approach is simple, No BS but effective. 

Couldn’t recommend someone highly enough!”

 Josh Bryant = Strength! Really enjoyed the program he had me on for Worlds Strongest Man. I consistantly gained strength and stamina throughout the 12 weeks. Body felt great due to his knowledge. Helped me compete at that next level!

Josh is a one of a kind coach that develops his programs with attention to detail and a unique perspective that forces an athlete to look at things differently. He has so much knowledge with his unique approach and has the ability to hone in on an athlete’s goal(s). I’ve worked with him for several months through multiple athletic endeavors including: strongwoman training, SuperLeague and now bodybuilding. Without a doubt, Josh has helped me evolve into the athlete I am today: strong, well conditioning and mentally tough. It’s hard to find a coach that will support you like Josh does no matter what you set your heart on!

"Josh was an integral part of my preparation process for Army Special Forces Assessment and Selection. With the help his expert programming and insight in to the needs of the Tactical Athlete, I earned my Selection at the conclusion of the course. The physical strength and endurance I built helped me to succeed and thrive during critical phases such as Gate Week and Team Week. When other candidates were under extreme physical duress from extended periods of time under or carrying heavy weight, I was able to put my mental efforts elsewhere and succeed due to my physical capacity. I look forward to continuing to work with Josh to constantly improve myself during my process throughout the Special Forces training pipeline."

When I hired Josh Bryant as a coach I expected great things but I never expected him to provide the level of coaching that he did. He exceeded my expectations beyond belief and he takes coaching to a personal level. As a Sheriffs Sergeant and SWAT team member of 15 years its hard to find coaches who are willing and able to create programs the fit the demand of the job. I suffered a life changing injury while on duty and the Doctors said if it wasn’t for my physical conditioning I would have died on the operating table. Because of Josh, his programming and his belief in me I lived to breath another day. My two young daughters and I are forever great full and words can’t explain how that feels.

Josh Bryant has not only helped me with returns in the gym , but on the job as well. I am a member of a full time SWAT team with hundreds of operations a year. And the strength gains he has helped me develop have increased my productivity at work. Equipment has been easier to manage and carry, and I am physically and mentally ready for the demanding training regimens every week. And more importantly I have been definitely functionally stronger and more prepared for tactical operations because of Josh’s workouts and guidance.

 “Josh Bryant is the greatest trainer in the world.”

Johnnie Jackson


"It has been both an honor and privilege to have such an amazing trainer, mentor, and coach that possesses both the knowledge and experience necessary to take any athlete to the next level. Josh's utilization of his strength training methods has definitely made me a tougher competitor,
both in the weight room and on stage."

Heather Klaassen


"When I said I couldn't, he said I could... and I did. He took an intimidated little girl with no confidence and made her into a winning competitor!!"

Loraine Hamilton


"Josh Bryant evaluated my workouts, changed and rewrote them to achieve optimal gains, and has pushed me farther than I thought I could go in a short amount of time- soon past not only the weight class bench press world record, but past the all-time world record as well."

Jeremy Hoornstra


"Training with Josh is like having someone in your corner in the boxing ring; he supports and pushes, but listens and adjusts. He makes you believe you can do something you otherwise would question. FAITH!"

Brandon Cass


"I've struggled with my weight since college and the only way I was truly able to see both a mental and physical change was though the JoshStrength Method."

When I started working with Josh we initially focussed on bodybuilding to allow some minor injuries to heal, even with the bodybuilding work I was still getting stronger and eventually transitioned back to powerlifting. In 13.5 months my Total increased from 555kg to 690kg a 135kg/300lb increase. The most impressive was my bench increasing 22.5kg/50lb in just the last 5 months (152.5kg to 175kg). Josh’s programming is always extremely precise, I was able to hit the numbers programmed even when I was unsure. The volume is broken up with deloads so I was always able to recover and avoid injury. Whenever a weeks training was done, the next weeks programming was always there within 24 hours regardless of timezone. As a fully customised program, Josh was always able to accommodate changes as required to suit my own individual requirements and at the same time incorporate methods that I could never have implemented on my own. If you are serious about getting stronger I recommend you get Josh to guide you.

Daniel Watson


"I hit a very frustrating plateau on my bench press so I decided to get help from the best in business! 

I worked with Josh for around 12 months and in that time he managed to increase my bench from 154lb to 176lb at a body weight of 119lb. 
The results speak enough for themselves but I was also so impressed with the level of variation and depth that Josh managed to include in my training. 
Being someone that tends to get bored easily… Josh always found ways to change things in a strategic way which always kept me motivated and enthusiastic about the training. 
It’s very rare to find someone that programs in such an individualised way to suit the physical and psychological needs of the client. 
My experience with Josh was fantastic and I couldn’t recommend his services any higher!"

Stephanie "Steph Fit Mum" Sanzo


I met Josh at a seminar with the late great Dr. Hatfield and was initially impressed by his knowledge and personal athletic accomplishments. After discussing my past multitude of injuries and future goals in powerlifting, Josh was absolutely positive he could help me reach them as long as I persevered. Sure enough, I’ve grown stronger, healthier and wiser with Josh’s guidance. If you’re willing to bust your huevos, Josh will surely set you up for a wise path to record breaking accomplishments, as he has done for me. God Bless you Josh!

Good coaches are individuals that can diagnose strengths / weaknesses in their clients and then prescribe programming, based on that analysis, that improves client performance.  The best coaches do that and more.  They establish a personal relationship with their athlete and go the extra mile to support the athlete.  The best coaches have a scientific basis for what they are doing.  In addition, they are artisans; they can find a subtle way of creating a desired outcome for their client.  Over the past 4 years Josh Bryant has been all that for me and more.  Thanks to him, I have continued to get stronger even though I recently turned 50 years old!  He has helped take my bench from really good to world class during that time.  However, that is only part of why I believe that Josh is a perfect coach for me.   He is responsive to my questions, he always meets my needs, he works collaboratively to create the best program for me, and he engages in discussions about different exercises, methods, and philosophies.  Josh is a top-tier coach, a straight-shooter, and a great role model.  If you want to get bigger, stronger, leaner, faster, and etc. then I recommend Josh to you.  Just be ready to work hard as he will push you to be the best....which of course is another reason he is great.

Donnie Thompson, World Record Powerlifter, Body Tempering Founder and Strength Coach says, "Josh Bryant is one of the best, if not the best, strength coach in the country."

Donnie Thompson


"I have had the opportunity to coach with some of world’s greatest coaches. These coaches are able to take an athlete to where they couldn’t have gone on their own. Josh has been able to take lifters of all sizes and abilities to take them from good to great! If anyone ever ask me to write up a program for them I have been directing them to Josh. If you want to be the best and you aren’t afraid of hard work then there isn’t any other coach to ask than Josh Bryant."

Bill Gillespie

World Record Bench Press Holder Legendary NCAA/NFL Strength Coach


I've been working with Josh Bryant for a long time.  His training is top notch and very personalized (tailored to equipment, goals, past injuries, etc).  We have been through strength goals, bodyweight goals, fixing imbalances, or conditioning goals.  Josh is honest about setting expectations and is excellent at throttling weights, or movements or making swaps to keep the progress going.  Make no mistake, he's in the driver seat and will make the right calls to maximize progress.

I have been training for decades and I have tried different programs or coaching. Working with Josh is where it's at. It's private training with a record holder, great banter and motivation talk but also a wealth of knowledge at your disposal to achieve your goals.  At a point in my life where time is both rare and precious, I need to maximize every aspect of my training and Josh's coaching is priceless.
Can't recommend Josh enough.  If you are on the market for personal training and you're on the fence, don't hesitate and do it.

Michel Bellemare


"I had originally gone to Josh because I had a physical fitness test for my job as a Police Officer. I gave Josh the standards I needed and not only did I achieve them.. I surpassed them. I am now continuing to work with Josh and I am gaining strength, endurance, and confidence. He makes a program fitted to your needs and adjusts it so you can reach your goals. I would recommend him as a coach to anyone that wants to improve any area of their fitness. "
