" I decided to have a personal trainer because I felt that I let my levels of fitness drop back a lot. As a middle aged person, I wanted to still be able to do serious and strenuous hiking in mountains. Ben has been fantastic, supportive and sensitive, but has also encouraged and pushed me to improved my performance. I have been able to achieve far more than I could have imagined, and certainly more than I would have done without Ben. My programmes are varied and interesting, so he has kept my motivation up, and I am exercising with much greater weights than I expected. I've noticed around the gym that Ben is really good at interacting with people right across the age range. If you want more information, Ben is always willing to explain the theory underlying what he's suggesting. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him."
