BEN TURNER: YOUR HEAD COACH
Ben Turner is a Level 4 Personal Trainer and MNU Certified Evidence Based Nutritionist. Starting out as a chef, then British Army soldier, Ben has progressed as an Army physical training instructor (PTI) and has led climbing and mountaineering expeditions across the globe, including the Himalaya and South Africa. Now as a nutritionist and personal trainer, Ben is dedicated to changing the way fitness and nutrition is delivered, creating a community of health, rather than a class to turn up and get shouted at!
Ben's single most important lesson gained through his life experiences is that 'exercise should be a celebration of what the body can do'. With this Ben has learned how to adapt the human body not just to be fit for expeditions, athletic achievements and competitions, but fit for life.
"Exercise should be a celebration of what your body can do"
