About Me

Hello! I'm Vinh Nguyen, an online powerlifting coach and the founder of Ascension Strength. With a passion for health, fitness, and strength, I have been actively involved in the fitness industry since 2018.

My own journey in powerlifting has been an incredible experience. As a dedicated athlete, I have competed at the National level and proudly secured two victories at the 2022 APL Nationals and 2022 GPC Nationals. These achievements have not only honed my skills as a powerlifter but have also given me valuable insights into the sport and the dedication required to reach new heights. In 2023, I have recently transitioned into the Australian Powerlifting Union (APU) in order to seek greater competition. As such, I can relate to my clients who are hungry for success in the sport and am familiar with the nuances associated with different federations. 

To expand my knowledge and expertise, I pursued tertiary education in the field of exercise science. In 2018, I obtained a Bachelor's degree in Exercise Science at Curtin University, equipping me with a solid foundation in understanding human movement, exercise physiology, and training principles. Building upon this, I completed a Master of Exercise Science (Strength & Conditioning) at Edith Cowan University in 2020, further enhancing my understanding of optimising athletic performance and training methodologies.

As a dedicated professional, I view the completion of my Masters in the field as just one milestone in my ongoing pursuit of knowledge and growth. Committed to delivering the highest level of coaching expertise, I remain steadfast in my commitment to continuous learning and upskilling. 

Driven by my passion for helping others, I decided to establish Ascension Strength in February 2023. It's a culmination of my experience, education, and genuine desire to assist individuals in reaching their health, fitness, and strength goals. As an online powerlifting coach, my mission is to guide and empower my clients to take their physical capabilities to the next level.

My coaching philosophy revolves around a client-centered approach, recognising that every individual is unique. This is not a cookie-cutter approach but rather a subscription-based coaching service where the training is tailored based on how you respond to the training stimulus. Together, we will work towards your goals, celebrate achievements, and overcome challenges along the way.

I am excited to be part of your fitness journey and help you realise your full potential. With Ascension Strength, we will ascend to new heights together. Let's embark on this transformative journey and unlock your strength, both physically and mentally.
