Ben is definitely everything I was looking for in a trainer. Not only is he incredibly knowledgeable about the body, its muscles and how to build them, he’s an incredibly relatable guy who shows up to make you the best possible you. He’s also a veteran which I appreciate more than most! His workouts are fantastic, the way he pushes you and explains the process is definitely something to appreciate. Hire this man! You won’t regret it.

Ben Burkman is absolutely fantastic! I found him by doing a Google search and landing on thumbtack, I was hesitant. He was quick to respond and has held such a great response even after signing me on as a client. He has worked with my scheduling to ensure I get times that work for me. Ben is the most knowledgeable trainer I have come across his workouts have been challenging, educating and I get the feeling that he is there for me and making my goals come true not using some program that works for all. I trust him with making my goals a reality and he explains why the steps have to be taken to reach them. He knows what he is doing!! I can't wait to see what limits get shattered!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My Pricing is broken down into monthly packages based on the frequency a client is looking to train each week (1,2,3,4, or 5 days per week) I also offer the option of purchasing several months of training in advance which allows clients to save money in the long run! The more sessions you purchase, the more you SAVE!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Initial client intake consultation consists of subjective & objective sit down interview along with 1 complimentary training session to assess movement patterns and current level of fitness.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I graduated from the National Personal Training Institute of Newport Beach in 2017. This CPT course is one of the most advanced science based curriculums offered with a duration of just over 6 months, including over 150 hours of basic nutrition. I received my Advanced NASM CPT Certificate from NPTI upon successful completion of all coursework and final examination. I also became certified as one of the first Instructors for a new UFC gym called CLASS where I was a group HIIT & Boxing fitness instructor for a year to help the brand get started. Most recently I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology and Exercise Science from CSUF and run a private training facility in Brea CA. I am also CPR/AED/FIRST AID Certified (Adult/Child/Infant) and maintain all necessary liability insurance.
