Taylor Made Beauty
I started doing PT's with Ben 2 years ago, we trained outside once a week which I combined with regular boot camp sessions. I loved these sessions they were always fun and different every week. Ben would always push me to my limit to make sure we got the best result and it wasn't long before I was hitting all my goals.
Shortly after I started training with Ben he set up activ8 kids, both my children knew Ben through my training and badgered him to drop the age on his kids boot camps. He since has and they both absolutely love it! Ben is fantastic with all the kids and its s great way to get them outside running around and most importantly having fun.
They both take part in the muddy obstacle races as part of a team with Ben and this just adds to the exciting times they have as part of activ8 fitness.
Shenfield High School
In my capacity as the Team Leader for Interventions, Alternative Pathways and Outreach at Shenfield High School, I have worked closely with Ben for over two years. He has supported a number of our students, some of whom present extremely challenging behaviours.
I have always found him to be very supportive and inclusive of all students. He has always been consistent in his handling of complex situations. He has acted as a Mentor to a number of students. Young people find him open, friendly, approachable and understanding of their individual needs. They trust his advice and judgement.
In a classroom/workshop environment he treats all young people fairly and encourages them to give of their best.
As well as working closely with our students and my team, he also works closely with our parents. They understand that he has the safety, wellbeing and progress of students at the core of his educational philosophy.
It has been a pleasure to work with him and I look forward to working with him again in the future.
I have worked as senior management within the Alternative Education sector for nine years and during that time, have worked closely with Ben for the last 5 years.
Ben’s approach to young people is both compassionate and empathetic. He has an ability to form strong relationships with both young people and schools which assists with ensuring positive outcomes.
Ben’s passion for inspiring young people through physical activity is evident. As an outstanding athlete himself, he is been a role model to students. He inspires young people to believe in themselves.
I cannot recommend Ben highly enough.
About 18 months ago I started attending Activ8 Fitness Camp with my friends to have some fun while improving my fitness.
I represent my school in cross country, athletics, hockey, rounders & netball & with Ben's help I have competed to a high standard & have been part of very successful teams.
I play netball at club level & this will be the second year I have trialled successfully for Essex Met County Netball academy. Not only has Ben worked hard on improving my fitness he has also given me the confidence to believe in myself that I can achieve anything I want to with hard work & determination.
Throughout his fitness camps, Ben continues to inspire us and push us to get the most out of our sessions, without pressuring us into doing something we are too exhausted to do. By making his exercises fun, we became enthusiastic about fitness, so everyone wants to participate. The exercises he selects vary in what muscle you work, improving all aspects of your body from stamina to core. He is an incredible fitness instructor and has the right attitude to get anyone to work !! And over all his group is FUN.
