About

Thomas Campitelli

My name is Tom Campitelli and I am a Starting Strength Coach  based out of Oakland, CA. I am a member of Mark Rippetoe’s staff and  travel throughout the US and internationally putting on Starting Strength Seminars and Camps. In February 2010, I became a Starting Strength Coach and was brought on to Rippetoe’s staff later that year. During the past several years, I have had the opportunity to coach hundreds of people ranging from elderly and infirm to dedicated strength athletes. I taught my seventy-four year old mother to squat and deadlift and I coached one of my women trainees to a fifth place finish at the 2013 USA Powerlifting Raw National Championships. In addition to my coaching work, I am also the Secretary for the Starting Strength Coaches Association.

If you are looking to get stronger, need some help mastering barbell technique, or would like to host a Starting Strength Seminar, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me.
