About Ben

I have always been interested in sport and exercise. From a young age up until I was around 18 years old, I played cricket where I became one of the top bowlers for my age group in Canterbury. After playing cricket for over 10 years, I decided it was time to make a change and started working out in the gym.

After doing this for a year I decided to study and achieved a Certificate in Fitness (Level 5). I ran my own successful business for around 6 and a half years, mainly through an Anytime Fitness branch. After this, I decided the next move was to go into tutoring. Before coming here, I was a tutor at another fitness education facility for around 1 year.

After a short break from the industry, I am now back into it!
