Chosen Uno Training has leased 1,100 square feet at 2627 Millwood Ave. for a fitness facility.
Steadman Rogers, a 2020 graduate of the University of South Carolina, founded Chosen Uno Training, which focuses on personal and group training, in 2018. His clients have included former USC standout and current NFL player Deebo Samuel as well as state and national pageant winners, according to a news release. Former Gamecocks wide receiver and 2020 USC graduate Chavis Dawkins is also a Chosen Uno trainer.
Rogers won three state weightlifting titles in high school and was named the S.C. strength athlete of the year as a senior.
Colliers International South Carolina brokerage associate Crawford Prezioso represented Chosen Uno in the transaction.
“Gyms and workout spaces seem to be thriving again since they were allowed to re-open during the COVID-19 pandemic,” Prezioso said in the release. “Chosen Uno Training is one of the newer fitness concepts in Columbia that has quickly taken off the ground. This new space on Millwood Avenue had been vacant for some time and the landlord, Palmstar Millwood LLC, was able to make the deal happen quickly.”
The gym is now open and selling a limited number of memberships.
“Crawford was very helpful and active in finding a new home for my training business,” Rogers said. “He stayed in contact daily and always had a variety of properties for me to visit in person.”
