Born in Brooklyn and raised in Connecticut, Ben has always considered New York home. A licensed Coast Guard captain and avid sailor, his love of the ocean is equaled by his passion for fitness. Having received an AFAA Personal Training certification in 2011, his career pursuit is built out of a lifetime of athletic competition. A former high school tennis star and triathlete, there is no sport in which Ben will not attempt to excel. Pilates is his next athletic endeavor, studying under Mandi Neubecker-Phillips at The Lab. Ben enjoys bringing intense, competitive workouts to his clients, developed by years of sports exercise that will make you sweat, improve your strength and transform your body.
