Our Team Members

Ben Stein, M.S., ACSM EP- C, ACSM/ACS CET

Operator/Owner

Ben started his exercise science career in 2005 where he obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree in Exercise Science from Metropolitan State University, followed by a Master of Science Degree from Boise State University, in Exercise Physiology.

Stein’s greatest passion is working for the functional restoration while improving the quality of life outcomes for those affected by cancer. Employed at an award-winning cancer treatment center in Boise, Idaho (Integrative Medicine Exercise Physiologist), Stein realized that greater restorative measures could be implemented to improve the functional independence and quality of life for those affected by cancer, (pre, during, and post cancer treatment) and he set his focus on a rehabilitation program development outside of hospital physical therapy. 

Additionally, Stein is committed to the continuing education of health care professionals as a serving panel member for the Clinical Exercise Physiologists Association, and a long-time member of the American College of Sports Medicine certified as an ACSM Exercise Physiologist and Cancer Exercise Trainer.

Sarah Syndergaard profile picture

Sarah Syndergaard, MS, RDN, CSO, LD, ACSM EP-C

Sarah Syndergaard was born and raised in Montana and has been loving living in Idaho since 2009. She has an enthusiasm for coaching people, especially those affected by cancer, toward their fitness and overall health goals. Sarah’s compassion for those affected by cancer was fueled even more when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013 at the young age of 30. Like many, she underwent the long road of surgery, chemo therapy and radiation therapy. She is currently cancer free and living a healthy lifestyle by eating well and being physically active to help reduce her risk of cancer recurrence. Her goal is inspire and motivate others cancer survivors to do the same.

Sarah’s journey toward physical health began when she was 9 years old as a competitive swimmer. She spent countless hours in the pool developing her strokes and her speed. She also played several other sports growing up, but swimming was her passion and she continued this through college. Now she enjoys running, hiking, biking, and has found a new love for fitness through Crossfit.

Sarah graduated from the University of Montana with a degree in Exercise Science and went on to graduate school at Montana State University completing a Master’s Degree in Exercise and Nutrition Science. Since then she has worked as registered dietitian and recently received her Board Certification as Specialist in Oncology. In 2016 she wanted to expand her skills once again and became certified as an Exercise Physiologist by the American College of Sports Medicine. Sarah uses her education and personal experience to help individuals eat well and gain strength through cancer treatment and into survivorship.
