Strength and conditioning coach Ben Prentiss has been working with professional and Olympic hockey players for almost 2 decades. Prior to opening BodyTuning, the original home of PHP, in 2000, Ben spent the off-season months in Scottsdale, AZ at Poliquin Performance Center training NHL and NFL athletes. Ben earned 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 worldwide with this credential. On January 1, 2016, Ben moved PHP to Stamford, CT, expanding from 2,000 to 8,000 square feet. The additional space has enabled them to expand and use unique equipment that has helped produce five Stanley Cup winners, Olympic gold medalist, NHL All-Stars, a Hart Trophy winner, Art Ross winner, Conn Smythe winner, and a Hobey Baker finalist. Ben has trained players from all 30 NHL teams as well as members of the OHL, KHL, QMJHL, USHL, AHL, German Ice Hockey League (GEL), National League A Switzerland (NLA), Finnish Elite League (FEL), NCAA, Olympics, World Cup, and World Championships. Most recently Ben was named Director of Hockey for Boston University.
