Personal Training

TrainingThere are lots of personal trainers in Oxford to choose from, most are qualified, some are insured and a select few actually practise what they preach. This page will hopefully provide you with a better idea of what Ben does and whether he’s right for you.

Pros of choosing Ben:

For strength and sporting performance, Ben’s knowledge is of the highest calibure: his own accomplishments across Strongman, Olympic weightlifting and Powerlifting attest to this.

If Ben isn’t working or training himself, he is reading or thinking about exercise. He is constantly looking for new ways to challenge himself and his clients, making every session slightly different.

Ben’s extensive experience in and around the gym allow him to accurately select the correct resistance/difficulty for every exercise, leaving you feeling exhausted but able (and willing!) to come back next time.

Cons of choosing Ben:

Ben is not the right trainer if you’re looking for assistance with post injury  rehabilitation or help with medical conditions. Although he’s worked through his own fair share of injuries over the years, it’s not an area he specialises in.

Ben is not an expert in nutrition, he has no qualifications in this area. Whilst he can offer sound advice, he doesn’t provide tailored diet plans.

Ben uses Oxford Power Sports Gym which is old fashioned, dirty, too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter. It’s a great place if you’re serious about training and don’t mind a few cobwebs, but it’s not right for everyone.

Ben is not the cheapest personal trainer on the market. If you’re on a tight budget you may need to look elsewhere, but like anything… you get what you pay for.
