Our newest addition to 5 Rings Fitness, Auston was born and raised in Seattle, Washington and has also spent time living abroad in China. He first took up barbell training when he was 16 in order to further his athletic career in baseball. Having trained the squat and deadlift alongside baseball, Auston made the transition to becoming a full-time powerlifter in 2016 following the conclusion of his baseball career.
Auston is quickly rising to the top of USA Powerlifting in the 93kg weight class. He was a bronze medalist at 2016 USAPL Raw Nationals in the Teen III 93kg weight class. His best lifts in competition are a 617 squat, 347lb bench press, and a 650lb deadlift.
Auston primarily coaches our competitive powerlifters. He works with lifters both in person and online, providing programming and technique analysis.
