Our mission is to integrate the world’s best equipment, education, and expertise to build a stronger world.

Strength is not only our passion, but also our area of expertise for almost 60 years. Eleiko’s core values performance, learning, and kindness. These values reflect how we think about strength training and serve as the foundation for the type of company we want to build. Strength training creates both strong bodies and strong minds. We believe that strong people are happier and healthier, not only capable of winning medals, but also rising to life's challenges with confidence and enthusiasm. We are inspired by people who keep growing, regardless of age or level of experience, those people who have a curious and open mind, the courage to fail, and the wisdom to learn.


  • A diversified course structure with time for self-study, hands-on learning, and group discussion, taught by instructors with different competences, experiences, and personalities—all because we want to create a dynamic and exciting learning environment.
  • An educational environment where students are actively involved in discussions, learn to critically evaluate evidence presented to them, approach learning with an open mind, and dare to try new things.
  • A shared goal, which is to become the best coach, trainer, or athlete possible.
  • Instructors who are top-notch teachers as well as experts in their fields. Our course materials are grounded in the most current sport science and proven in practice by decades of experience.
  • A trainer or coach understanding the science behind training, the art of coaching, how to effectively communicate, and how to form quality relationships.
  • An extended time frame for learning, facilitated by hybrid course structures that mesh self-study with in-person courses and post-course support and networking.
  • A paperless course where as much of the material is presented on our digital platform.
  • A deeper understanding of material and concepts through experiential and self-directed learning.
  • Courses where the students learn for themselves, but the emphasis is on becoming better at teaching others.
