Hiroshi Powell
Chiseled Health and Fitness, Owner
Hiroshi got his start like every one else - in his Mother's basement. Realizing he had a talent, he joined the world famous P & P Power Olympic Gym in Waltham, MA. He trained along side Paul Liotine, Ernie Hackett, Mary Barreira, Joe Rizza, Joe Rizzo, Liberty Winter, Steve Brown, George Perugia and many more. Half of his teammates became National Champions and the entire team was Nationally ranked in the United States Powerlifting Federation (USPF). Two team members (Mary and Ernie) were also World Champions in their weight class. It was through training with these extremely talented lifters that Hiroshi gained his experience and skill to become Nationally ranked at 148 and 165. After training at 210 and dieting back to 165 (with a 27" waist and 6% bodyfat), his total was 1800 (700 squat; 410 bench, 690 deadlift). An injury after 6 competitive years forced him to shift from powerlifting to bodybuilding and in his first competition placed second.

If you're serious about your power lifting or bodybuilding training or even if you want general weight training to help you meet your weight loss goals and if you want to train with one of the best on Chiseled's staff, Hiroshi as Chiseled's owner is the trainer you're looking for. He is available for 1 on 1 - 30 minute and 1 on 1 - 60 minute personal training sessions Monday-Friday 5 PM -10 PM and Saturday and Sunday during open gym hours. Off-hour training sessions are available upon request. 48 hour booking notice is required.
