Ben Chantos
Trainer & Co-Owner

Like many, I believe that ‘Strength is King’ however it is equally important to continuously practice basic overall athletic skills. I strive to provide a fun and education-based training program, teaching the “hows and whys” of developing proper movement patterns & techniques that have been proven to reduce risk of injuries and build solid foundations of strength and overall long term athletic development.

My goal is to teach and sculpt individuals as well as athletes both on and off the field

Trainer & Co-Owner

I’ve been involved with strength training my entire adult life. The study of how to get strong and it’s amazing effects on our bodies still amazes and fascinates me. Over decades now, I’ve been able to work with a very diverse population: Athletes, people looking to get fit, persons looking to lose weight, occupational athletes, and persons recovering from illness or injury. This wide range of experience in strength coaching has led me to acknowledge one simple truth “Strength is King”.

“Best squad, best facilities. This team has been behind me since day 1 of getting serious about powerlifting and strength training. There are so many years of knowledge stacked up in the STRONG U team. They really care about you, and they’ve even supported me in programming when I’m away at school. It’s always great knowing I have a home of gains to come back to. Not to mention those gamma rays from the U helped me finally crush my bench PR. Strong U is the place to go if you’re looking to surpass your goals and be part of an amazing family.” – Mira

“Great Facility with Great people. This place helps you achieve your fitness goals wether it being in the gym with them or it being offsite. When I was away at School these guys sent me the workouts that fit my athletic goals and it felt like I never skipped a beat. They were always available if I had any questions and always had back up workouts ready just in case there wasn’t a certain machine available. Even when your away they’ll make sure your taken care of.” – Jimmy
