Turning 40 years old and being overweight and unfit after having been a premier rugby player through my 20’s and early 30’s, I was disappointed with where I had let myself get to.
After years of inconsistent / non-existent physical training and a serious lack of personal motivation, I realised I needed to put a structure in place to get my health and wellbeing back on track. I made the decision to get a personal trainer and I was referred to Ben and Progressive Training through a friend, who, was already a client. This turned out to be the best decision of my whole year.
Ben really listens to what you are trying to accomplish and then designs his training accordingly. He gives excellent prior instruction on lifting technique and then analyses and corrects your form where necessary to ensure you are operating safely. His programmes are well thought out and structured - He has an amazing ability to assess where your fitness is at and then push you right to the limit of your ability – but in an extremely positive way.
Asides from his technical ability Ben’s positive personality is infectious to all those around him and he always goes the extra mile with his personal touches that lets you know he cares about you individually.
After 6 months training with Ben I feel stronger, healthier and more alive than I have in years
