Joe Pemberton

BComm (Accounting, Finance, Commercial Law), GradDipCA, Cert III & IV in Fitness, Level 1 Strength and Conditioning Coach, Level 1 Powerlifting Coach

Joe Pemberton is a strength coach and Founder of Sydney Strength Training in Sydney, Australia. Previously a Chartered Accountant, Joe found corporate life didn’t give him the same buzz as helping people change their lives through training, so in 2011 he started coaching full-time.

Although Joe has an athletic background as a national level swimmer, a strongman competitor, and a mediocre powerlifter, his real interest lies in introducing people to the joys of training, both as an enjoyable pastime, and for the immense health benefits training provides.

Joe became Australia’s first Starting Strength Coach in 2016, and relinquished this credential in 2018. He now works closely with Barbell Medicine as a strength coach.

Joe now lives in Tasmania where he runs Hobart Strength Training, but still takes an active role in SST admin and operations.
