About this pro
I can't say enough good things about Ben. I was on the verge of giving up on my dreams of lasting weight loss and building overall strength for what seemed like the millionth time when I met him. He has helped me to accomplish things I thought were no longer attainable as I was nearing 50. I look forward to being challenged every time I work out with Ben. I've worked with trainers before but have never been pushed to realize my full potential until now. He changes the workouts every week and works around injuries or other issues. I could go on and on....he's the best!Apr 11, 2017Verified

My husband and I recently moved to Crown Point and decided to forego a gym membership to workout at home. Workouts were mundane and not too productive so we decided to search for a personal trainer. We came across Ben's website and decided to give him a try. After meeting with him to discuss our ages (51 and 48), past injuries, and fitness goals, we began training in February. We train with Ben at our home 2 days a week, and he leaves a 3rd workout for us to do on our own. We have been impressed with Ben's knowledge, attention to detail, work ethic, and the creativity of his workouts. We look forward to the sessions which are challenging and well thought out. Ben teaches proper technique, adapts the exercises to help with past injuries, and monitors our form during each set. We have worked out at gyms for many years with varying results, but Ben has taught us a much more effective way to train. With Ben's help, we reached our initial fitness goals and continue to improve our strength, fitness, and energy levels. Most importantly, the positive experience and solid results have motivated us to stay committed to health and fitness. Thanks Ben!!Oct 4, 2014Verified

I worked with Ben on the buddy system for two months. Upon my last doctors appointment, I weighed 188lbs. At the end of the first week with Ben I went down 3lbs, and after two weeks I had lost 10lbs. It's not easy but he will have you do the exercises correctly, and not hesitate to stop you and modify your position, explaining what you're working. He's always ready to explain any and everything that's presented to him about exercise and diet. He is very informative. I'm really on the right track, thanks to Ben.Jul 6, 2013

- What types of customers have you worked with?Most of the individuals I work with are of a fairly broad age group, and looking to improve their overall conditioning. While losing that extra 20lbs can go a long way in improving one's self confidence, most people are surprised at the even more significant benefits of being healthy. For one person that could mean the confidence and ability to play with their grandchildren like they've always wanted to, and for someone else it might mean running their first 5k.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Finding a good trainer can be like finding anyone else in a service-related industry. Essentially, you're not buying a product, but a person and their expertise. Some may come with more credentials, while another may have more real world experience. Some combination of both is ideal. Your goals should be relatively within the scope of experience of the trainer. For example, If your goal is training for something very specific, such as a marathon/ultra marathon, and you are already fairly conditioned, finding a "running coach" trainer may be your best bet. Don't make your decision only based on price point. If you found a trainer you really like, look into practical options, like training with a friend, before going with the cheaper service.
