About Ben:

I've been working as a coach full time since 2010 when I left the British Army. I now run my own coaching business called, The Strength Factory out of B Pro Fitness where I work with action sports athletes and the general public. As well as working with Elite level pro athletes from Mountain Biking and Motocross I coach a wide range of everyday people who love to ride bikes, climb mountains, ski, surf or just do adventurous, cool things. If that sounds like you and you want a friendly and professional coach to help you reach your goals, then get in touch.


Ben's Little Quirk:

A funny moment early in my coaching career was approaching a male member wearing short shorts on an exercise bike who's nuts were hanging out. I had to ask him to put them away. It still makes me laugh to this day when I think about his face as he realised.


Ben's Favourite Exercises:

Not sure I have one as we are all different, but in general terms, some sort of deadlift is usually a winner.


Testimonials from Ben's Clients: 

"I started training with Ben 4 years ago after hearing good things from a friend. I considered myself fit but not strong but within a few months or so of weekly sessions, I noticed how much better I could control my posture on the bike. 4 years down the line and I feel far stronger on the bike and able to keep pushing on long rough descents, which was a struggle in the past. I'm a keen skier and during winter months, Ben adjusts his sessions to suit. Similar to the bike, I now find it easier to push forward into the skis through funky snow conditions. Finally, he's always enthusiastic and positive."

"Ben brings a world of expertise, experience, up-to-date science-based knowledge and the latest research together with an encouraging, supportive manner to help you reach your goals. He’s a pleasure to train with and will adapt sessions to suit the individual needs of clients. I always leave the sessions feeling great, with a big smile on my face, and have experienced tangible benefits. Training regularly with Ben has seen my strength and fitness improve brilliantly; I’m healthier, stronger and feel great."

"Only been seeing Ben for a couple of months, but really impressed with what I've experienced so far. The program plans change each week and are geared towards mountain biking (as was my intention), but I'm seeing overall strength improvement too. He explains the routines well, pushes you to your limits and cracks enough terrible jokes to keep it fun. Recommended."
