Ben is one of the few coaches who is able to understand coaching from both the athlete perspective and also the physiological perspective. This is because he has the rare combination of being both an experienced athlete and fully qualified exercise physiologist providing him both the practical experience and scientific expertise required to devise the highest quality coaching programs and training sessions.

Working in high performance sport for the last 10 years, Ben has been lucky enough to work with a wide range of athletes from Olympic level runners and swimmers to professional footballers and tennis players. At his clinic in Melbourne he can usually be found conducting Vo2 tests, metabolic testing, body composition testing and altitude training all in the same of science and helping athletes perform better.

The cornerstones of Ben’s coaching philosophy are dedication, discipline and hard-work. When an athlete combines this along with one of Ben’s specific training plans, then we are able to start to realize each individual’s true potential.
