The Strength Agenda is a strength and conditioning facility that specializes in athlete performance. Our Youth Athlete programs seek to help teen athletes in the Elmhurst, Bensenville and Addison area become stronger, faster, more mentally tough, and less prone to injuries. We work with athletes in all sports, and have specialists on staff that are experts in football, baseball, volleyball, track & field, hockey and softball. Learn more here.
The Strength Agenda is also home to TeamSAW, Chicago’s fastest-growing weightlifting club. Coached by top-level Chicago weightlifters Tom Sroka and Mike Szela, our Elmhurst Olympic weighftlifting club is open to all lifters who are dedicated to improving in the sport of weightlifting. We have separate training programs for youth, senior and masters lifters, and work with lifters who compete, as well as those who train as a hobby. We are a USAW recognized club, host several weightlifting meets in Chicago annually, and travel to major competitions, including Nationals, the American Open, the Arnold, U23s (University Nationals), and more. Our training program is full-service and includes programming and coaching. We also have an online coaching option for those athletes not local to Chicago, as well as a semi-remote option for Chicago area lifters who can only train in our Elmhurst weightlifting facility once or twice a week.
