Discover Ben's rather strange story:
From broken neck to health and fitness success...
I didn't know it at the time but my health and fitness journey started when I nearly died in a car accident where the driver of a Lamborghini lost control and hit a tree (I was the passenger).
I broke and dislocated my neck and I had an operation to fuse c3/c4 in my neck with a metal plate and pins. I was very close to being paralysed or actually losing my life.
During my 2 year recovery I put on a lot of weight and became very depressed. I was not in a good place. I was on anti-depressants, it was dark.
One day I saw myself on the TV. I didn't recognise myself. That's when I knew something had to be done. I tried lots of different fad diets, but couldn't find anything that actually worked long term.
One day to my surprise my fiancée left me and I became a full time single Dad to my two daughters. That was the catalyst that changed my life. I had to become the best version of my self, for them!
Since then I focussed entirely on living a healthy lifestyle to constantly improve myself for my daughters and I am proud to say that it worked and I'm now in the fortunate position to help others as a qualified personal trainer.
I lost over 82lbs/5.7 stone and I am now on a fitness mission to get in the best shape I possibly can to inspire others. I am documenting my healthy lifestyle through social media with the hope to motivate others to change their lives too.
My life's been a tough one but since transforming my body, I have gone on to become a certified level 3 personal trainer.
I started my fitness boot camp at Tulleys Farm in May which has taken off and I also created Fit Fest South to help people discover whats available within the fitness world.
I look forward to meeting you at boot camp or Fit Fest South.
