Hi, I'm Ben.
I'm a personal trainer, running coach and men's mental health advocate based in Wellington, New Zealand.I'm here to support, educate, and create plans that are focused on proactivity and creating the environment that allows you to thrive.On this site you can read about me and the services I offer, check out my social channels or get in touch.
If it's health orientated, then I am interested! I love to study (a geek at heart), spend time with my beautiful family, cook (I think of myself as a bit of a chef), and be outside running.After losing my dad at 54 and my father in law at 58, I have endured the pain of losing influential men well before their time. I have gone through my own struggles both physically and mentally while in my late 20s and early 30s.During my decline I was fortunate enough to have supportive people around me, an idea of what true health was both physically/mentally due to my job and had the opportunity to create a plan/environment that allowed me to get back to my best.
Unfortunately, what I see today is a lot of men who want help but who suffer in silence, lack support, live in a damaging environment, have no plan and no idea what good health feels and looks like. Essentially doing whatever they can to survive by sacrificing their wellbeing. This must stop.My mission began in 2012 and it remains the same. To help change the face of men’s health. To support, educate, and create plans that are focused on personalisation, prevention, protection by being proactive and creating the environment that allows men to thrive.
