profilephoto01-001370000076W5eAAETraining and physical preparation has been my life for the past 15+ years. I started as a chubby kid doing workouts out of muscle magazines in my basement with my dad’s small set of weights. Even though the training was not the greatest, it developed a work ethic and love for training that set me up for success in athletics. Thanks to my early introduction to strength training I was able to break my high school records in shot put and discus and earn my way onto a college track team.

After college I pursued training and wellness full-time and haven’t looked back since. I have trained for bodybuilding, track and field, giveroy sport, and currently train hardstyle kettlebell style and strongman. I incorporate all the disciplines I have learned along the way into my training and my clients to form a unique style that sets BE STRONG apart.

I am a certified personal trainer and have earned my level two kettlebell instructor certification through StrongFirst. I regularly compete in strongman competitions and have earned national qualifying bids throughout multiple weight classes and federations. I achieved the title of Beast Tamer through StrongFirst and won Kentucky’s Strongest Man in 2018 at 105kg weight class.

I currently train myself and others out of my gym in Erlanger, KY. I spend equal time coaching remotely through TrainHeroic for personal growth, strength, and varied competitions.

When not training myself or others I like to spend time with my wife and three children. I have always incorporated my family in my fitness goals, often training while my children are running around me. We all eat as healthy as possible and spend most of our time away from technology and enjoying the outdoors. I plan to live a long healthy life even when my competition days are done.

Ben is amazing at staying in tune with where your mind and body on a day to day while working towards an ultimate goal. For me, it was the TSC. Ben adjusted on the fly to our Covid imposed 14 day quarantine and a tweaked back a couple weeks after that. The end result was that, at the age of 40, I broke PRs.

Steven Campbell
Thoughtful, caring, and a true student of physiology/sports science and always striving to learn more. Ben listens to your goals and tunes in during each session. As a fellow SFG I would recommend Ben to anyone looking to achieve a fitness goal(s) over a wide spectrum.

When I first started training with Ben I had zero experience doing any weight lifting but he soon put me at ease with his knowledge and friendly demeanor. One thing about Ben is he is always trying to get better at what he does. You can clearly tell by the effort he puts in with you and with himself that this is not just a "job" for him. This is his passion. You wont find many people with more knowledge of this industry than him. Highly recommended!!

I was nervous as hell when I joined the training group. I learned so much from Ben. He helped correct my positioning and guided me when it was time to increase my weight throughout training. He’s patient, funny and won’t let anyone feel judged while learning. Awesome coach. I’d recommend him to anyone. Thanks Ben!!

Ben is one of the most well-rounded trainers I have worked with and he constantly shows his depth of knowledge every time a question or problem pops up. He has great cues to give in the moment and has useful information to share with me that I could think about later.

He is constantly improving and putting in the work outside the gym as well, which helps motivate me to get better each day.

By the time I finishing writing this Ben will be better than I can express. He's constantly learning, living the life, and a gift to those who are fortunate enough to train with him.

He's a rising star in the industry and will continue to lift those around him. Do yourself a favor and seek out hits coaching.

I’m not really sure where to begin with reviewing Ben. He has been an incredible coach, motivator and most of all an awesome friend. I began training with Ben 6 years ago, moved away for two of those but always stayed in contact. He helped me understand my strengths and really honed in on them. I began training with him at a weight of 260 pounds, but for long. With his guidance and never ending knowledge on his craft I lost 100 pounds in just under 11 months. No gimmicks no crazy diets or ridiculous training schedule. Just hard work and great coaching.
He really is amazing at what he does, he doesn’t make you feel like he’s a drill instructor, and will always help you grow when you fall off track a bit. There’s never any judgement and always a lot of coaching.

I really can’t say enough great things about him and I’m glad we’ve remained friends throughout the years. It really is because of him that I’ve been able to stay at a maintaining weight since dropping it 5 years ago. Thanks for being a great mentor, buddy! Keep on changing lives!

I can't say enough about Ben. He is wonderful at meeting you where you're at and helping you to advance in a proper and successful way. His training techniques and drive to see each individual succeed comes from the passion he has of learning and teaching. If you haven't trained with Ben, do yourself a favor....start.

Ben is a great trainer. Knowledgeable, honest, helpful, funny and challenging. He customized workouts to meet your needs and puts the important things first.

I can’t recommend Ben’s training services enough.

Ben started training me over 4 years ago when I was first starting out. I was a complete beginner and very apprehensive about training with weights. Bens approach to training is encouraging and professional that is laser focused on his clients health and safety while working toward their individual goals. You’ll appreciate his professional approach and technical understanding of improving the body’s function and mobility. Ben views his clients as individuals and will tailor your attention every step of the way. Ben excels at working with all levels of fitness and ability whether you’re at the begging of your fitness journey or an athlete looking to improve your competitive edge. He practices what he teaches -follow him on social media to see for yourself.

Mark Regner
I’m a fellow coach and have known Ben for several years now. I recently hosted him for a kettlebell workshop for my clients. It was a great experience. Ben is an extremely knowledgeable coach and had the ability to effectively teach individuals through articulate and succinct cueing. This is what makes the biggest difference. He’s able to pinpoint what area or movement pattern that needs adjustment, and is able to efficiently communicate that to individuals in the simplest terms possible. He’s passionate about training and coaching and truly looks out for the client’s best interest regarding their progress. I’d strongly recommend him as an online trainer, a coach, or for a seminar. All around five stars.

Joseph Gronefeld
To say Ben knows what he is doing is an understatement. Ben and I have been training together for three years now. From the first night at Peak he wanted me to train to be a strongman competitor. I was more worried about bettering my health and I never truly felt like competing again. It wasn’t until this past July that I fell in love with competition again. Even though I was competing against myself, it felt remarkable. I decided to compete in the strongman competition and I feel very confident in my strength. I owe that all to the coaches and Ben at peak. Ben and I really started talks no about health fitness four years ago at a mutual friends wedding. I feel like we have built a life long friendship and I know with his guidance I can become the best version of myself. Thank you Ben. You’re a great coach.

Easily the best trainer I have ever worked with. Ben is patient and will help you achieve the results you are hoping for. If you’re willing to follow the plan he will customize to your specific needs and put in the work you will absolutely see the results. His training style is unmatched. He is thoughtful and truly cares about his clients, not just another trainer going through the motions. He will push you to be your best self and encourage you to keep pushing through your “I cant’s” showing you how you CAN.

Don’t hesitate to hire Ben. He’s one of the best around!
