About Me

Ben believes that achieving goals is dependent on both physical and mental strength. Ben helps his clients lose fat, rehabilitate injuries, build muscle and improve their strength. Ben is a Level III P.I.C.P. National level strength coach and BioSignature practitioner. Ben has trained with Charles Poliquin, one of the top strength coaches in the world, at the Eleiko Institute in Sweden and at the Poliquin Strength Institute in Rhode Island.

Ben has always participated in physical activity. A native of Kenya, Ben played rugby, ran track and field, played semi-professional basketball, achieved Dan ranking in WTF Taekwondo, travelled to Japan to train in Taijitsu, and is a former IDF soldier.

Ben moved back to Canada for university and injured his knee playing basketball. This experience taught him the process of rehabilitation and inspired him to help others.
