Our Story

Working in elite sport for a number of years Coach William Wayland has spent that time asking what is the essence of good training and coaching? Hosting his athletes and clients at a variety of gyms, absorbing different approaches and taking time to understand the positives and short comings of many training facilities and commercial fitness venues. William & business partner Matt Hughes have cultivated the philosophy that "we can do better". Powering Through is the realization of that long standing ambition.
