throwing and highland games!

Anything Highland Games! High School Shot Put and Discus Coaching! Throwers can be some of the strongest and most powerful athletes. We wish to be able to provide them with that coaching. Please check out our shop for Highland Games Programming and Coaching options we have available.

We have successfully hosted 5 Highland Games clinics at Strength Empire Gym with over 50 different athletes learning how to throw in the games from us! We couldn't be more excited to help grow the sport. Keep an eye out on our social media for announcements for our clinics all year long.


Contact Justin for any throws coaching you may need!

"If you have never done a Highland Games clinic (and even if you have), you should make it a point to get in a training session with Justin. His experience as a personal trainer and power lifter gives him the knowledge and mentality to help throwers of all levels. I have benefited every time Justin has coached me with my throws, and every time it has been a fun experience! Justin really keeps his mind on helping every client become the best athlete they can.
