Strength and conditioning coach Ben Prentiss has been working with professional and Olympic hockey players for 17 years. Ben's unique training system encompasses speed, strength, power, agility, and flexibility, along with body composition and nutrition. This approach has allowed athletes to achieve their personal goals and reach optimal physical shape. Ben opened his own training facility, BodyTuning, fifteen years ago in Darien, CT. BodyTuning, home of Prentiss Hockey Performance, is a 2,000 square foot gym containing unique equipment that has helped produce four Stanley Cup winners, Olympic gold medalist, NHL All-Stars, a Hart Trophy winner, Art Ross winner, and a Hobey Baker finalist.

Over the years Ben has trained professional hockey players on 26 of 30 NHL teams as well as members of the OHL, KHL, QMJHL, USHL, AHL, DEL (German Ice Hockey League), NLA (National League A Switzerland), FEL (Finnish Elite League), NCAA, Olympics, and World Championships. Ben's off-season training program has been recommended by coaches, advisors, and agents. Over two dozen media outlets have featured Ben's training techniques with his athletes, including Sports Illustrated, NBC Sports, Men's Health, Fox Sports, The New York Times, and The Hockey News.

Prior to BodyTuning becoming a destination for athletes, Ben spent the off-season months in Scottsdale, Arizona at Poliquin Performance Center training NHL and NFL athletes. Ben's expertise in training is exemplified by a Level V certification with world-renowned strength coach Charles Poliquin. Based on the trainer's education and experience a Level V trainer must train a medalist at the international level and consequently Ben is one of a few trainers world wide with this credential.
