About Grant Broggi

Grant started lifting with barbells while in Military College to get stronger. It made sense to Grant that if he was stronger he would be more resilient against injuries and the big barbell lifts seemed like a good a way to train the whole body at once. 

In the Marine Corps, Grant became an Artillery Officer, and was given his first platoon of men. He noticed that his 40 young men that were weak and prone to injury. They all lacked durability, and were not ready for the rigors of combat. 

Grant found the book Starting Strength and immediately began implementing the form and training outlines into his own workout.  He had been training with barbells for years but never felt like he was reaching his potential. With Starting Strength, he finally found a process that provided real results.  After 3 months of adjusted training he was then able to squat 465lbs.

He began to train his Marines the same way and the entire platoon got stronger. Fewer trips to the medical officer, fewer dropouts on hikes, fewer shoulder injuries when carrying 80lbs packs.  More confidence. Men learning that they could do things they thought were impossible. After Grant’s first deployment he found himself coaching hundreds of Marines on how to barbell train. 

Grant eventually set up a gym in his home garage and began training civilians. Word of mouth spread from friends and family until the demand was great enough that he needed a gym and other full time coaches. He opened his first gym The Strength Co. in late 2017 and and also began his online coaching platform.

Since opening two gyms and coaching hundreds of people online, Grant also launched an American Made Barbell Equipment business in 2020. 

The Strength Co. has furnished countless commercial  and home gyms across the country with all high end Made In USA barbell equipment.
