" I was extremely intimidated by the whole "gym" idea. I knew nothing about how to work the machines, let alone what exercises to do (how often and how many), etc. This kept me out of the gym for years. After finally getting enough courage to go in and actually start a membership, I knew right away that the ONLY way I would actually get use out of the membership would be if I was seeing a trainer. I needed a reason to force myself to go every day. In my time training with Ben, I have become a lot more comfortable with the gym environment, as well as with myself. I am beginning to feel good about myself which is definitely a first in my life. I feel comfortable knowing that when I come in, he has taken the time to plan a workout that is best for me, as well as being there to make sure that I am doing everything correctly. Achieving the best possible results makes everything worth it. If I was working out alone, there would be a lot of stuff I never try, not knowing what to do or not to do. Ben is always available when I have questions about something or when I am wondering why I am doing something a specific way. He always pushes me, usually way harder than I would push myself (Obviously it must work because I am still going and that last rep didn't kill me). He is actually interested in his clients reaching their goals. When he is working with you, he is 100% focused on what you are doing. If I were entering the gym on my own, I would never have worked on my arms because I only wanted to work on my stomach. Ironically, my arms are what I get the most compliments about now. I have learned that you can't focus on just one part of your body and progress evenly. I consider myself lucky to go through this experience. I have seen many people who went through negative experiences with trainers. They never come back to the gym. For me, training has only been beneficial. I am glad to have had my experience with a great trainer." - Robin C.


"I began working with Ben because I have always been a hardgainer who was tired of seeing little to no results from my workouts. Training with Ben has given me more results in a few months than I got from the years of working out on my own. Shortly after I began training with Ben I went on a camping trip with friends I had not seen in months, and immediately after arriving they were commenting on how much bigger I looked. I would recommend Ben to anyone who is serious about reaching their fitness goals." - Mike M.

"Ben developed a specific training regimen for me based on my sport specific goals.  I was extremely impressed by his professionalism and sincerity to help me reach those goals.  For all the time we spent together in the gym he also spent ample amounts of time designing, researching, and game planning to work on my weaknesses and improve my strengths. While some personal trainers do cookie cutter workouts, Ben designs specific regimens for clients, monitoring and recording sets, weight, and progression.  He has an insurmountable knowledge of fitness and nutrition, and is passionate about his profession and seeing his clients meeting their goals.  Whatever your goals may be, I would strongly recommend contacting Ben to develop a specific regimen to help you meet those goals.  He is a true professional in every sense of the word when it comes to personal training." - Mike M.


"I have been a competitive athlete all my life. I played college football, as well as competed in bodybuilding and mixed martial arts. Through 20 years of sports training I thought I knew it all. After 7 years in bodybuilding, I began to hit my plateau. My training became stale and results were non-existent. Then I met Ben Martin. He brought an immense amount of knowledge and passion to training. I asked for Ben's help to prepare myself for my next national qualifying bodybuilding show. Through my four months of show prep training, Ben showed me the following new methods: Functional core training, explosive (high impact), and low impact training. All these methods proved to elevate my results, bringing me to the next level. My body composition was better than ever. Due to the amazing results Ben was able to help me achieve, I consulted him on several occasions when I changed my focus from bodybuilding to mixed martial arts. He helped me apply a strength and conditioning program that was conducive to me excelling in mixed martial arts. Without Ben's service, I would not have made it to the next level. Thank you Ben!" - Jason M.  


"I enjoyed my training sessions with Ben, as he always keeps them unique. I am very satisfied with the results from training. I suffered from neck and back pain for many years and while training with Ben, I did not have that pain.  I chose to train with Ben because he does not use the traditional machines for most of the workouts.  Ben also takes extra time with his clients to make sure they are satisfied." - Denise D.


"What I appreciate and liked the most about training with Ben was the variety of exercises , hitting various muscle groups at the same time. I would do one exercise for a muscle, but with a concentration on that muscle while simultaneously requiring more core facilitation and balance, so then hitting many other areas of the body. Every week we had new exercises - many that he came up with on his own. He was very professional and always on time. He challenged me the most of any trainers I have tried (3 or 4). I felt like he knew what was best for me, and how hard to push me." - Mary P.

  "Ben developed a specific training regimen for me based on my sport specific goals.  I was extremely impressed by his professionalism and sincerity to help me reach the goals.  For all the time we spent together in the gym he also spent ample amounts of time designing, researching, and game planning to work on my weaknesses and improve my strengths.  While some personal trainers do cookie cutter workouts, Ben designs specific regimens for clients, monitering and recording sets, weight, and progression.  He has an insurmountable knowledge of fitness and nutrition, and is passionate about his profession and seeing his clients meeting their goals.  Whatever your goals may be, I would strongly recommend contacting Ben to develop a specific regimen to help you meet those goals.  He is a true professional in every sense of the word when it comes to personal training." - Robert S.

"I've worked with Ben for 8 weeks and I've gone from 202 to 189lbs. I personally feel that out of the three trainers I've had in a lifetime, Ben is the most professional and informative. He explains where you will feel the muscles working, and he watches to ensure you are doing each exercise correctly. He's creative and knowledgeable, not only about the fitness portion, but diet also. Thanks to Ben I will be running my first 5k in 2 weeks and I am very confident I will do well." - Dahana S.

"I worked with Ben on the buddy system for 2 months. I weighed 188lbs when I started and in a little over a week I lost the first 3lbs. At the end of the following week I was down 10 lbs. It's not easy, but he has you doing the exercises the proper way, never hesitating to correct your position or explain the details in what you're doing. He's always ready to explain anything that's asked, about exercise or diet. I'm really on the right track, thanks to Ben." - Sarah B.

"Before starting to work with Ben, I had the typical mentality of “I’ve tried everything, what is some stranger that doesn’t know anything about me going to change.”  Well let me assure you, he will not be doing any of the changing, he will only give you the tools to CHANGE YOURSELF!  His knowledge of the body and the way to maximize your results when working out is something you cannot get from a magazine or a workout video from Walmart, He catered every workout to my body type, and put my safety first every time.  He coached me through the lifestyle changes I HAD to make in order to be successful in and outside of the gym.  He didn’t do it by screaming or giving you the cold shoulder if you did something wrong, but reminded you of the goals you want to achieve.  If you are looking for someone to hold your hand through the process, call your mother.  If you want someone to push you and be there to help finish your last rep when you think you can’t, call Ben.  I have lost 37 pounds in 12 weeks and plan on hitting all three of my goals in the coming weeks.  Thank you Ben for helping me build the foundation to start over again!" - Marko J.


"When a friend referred me to Ben I was hesitant at first; I had tried for 7 years to help my boyfriend become a healthier version of himself but wasn’t as successful as we had hoped. We had tried counting calories, reading labels, making healthier eating choices, we used work out videos, we made charts and kept journals, we went to the gym together, and I even made him a motivational binder to organize recipes and workouts but no matter what I tried he kept going back to old habits quickly after starting anything new. Although getting a personal trainer had always been in the back of my mind, it had finally gotten to the point where we decided to give it a try. Ben was very professional and knowledgeable from the moment I made the first inquiry call. He kept my boyfriend accountable for his own actions and more motivated than I’ve seen him in all of the years we’ve been working toward a healthier lifestyle. I’m very happy with the working relationship he had/has with my boyfriend and I am thankful I made the initial call. We’re planning on working together to do an obstacle course race like the Spartan Race and the Tough Mudder in the future as continued training goals. The way I see it, Ben helped give my significant other a sense of pride in his ability to work out instead of embarrassment or anxiety that 'it wasn’t going to work'... Thanks Ben." - S. Bertolino

 

" I have been training with Ben for approximately two months. I find his training sessions to be very challenging and each session increases with difficulty. He expects you to give 100% and pushes you when you have nothing left to give. Being an avid runner, I have found these sessions provide me with a more effective way to get maximum results. They provide with an overall full body workout, better stability, flexibility, body composition, and more energy. Even though my sessions are only once per week, it's nice to know I will be pushed to the best of my ability." - Raelene C.

 " If you're old like me (70), out of shape, and want to get back in shape (or somnolence of shape), this is where to go. Working out with Ben I sometimes wonder what the heck I'm doing to myself. But after several months, I look better, I've lost weight, decreased my waistline, sleep better, and occasionally hurt all over - but it's a good kind of hurt! He has me doing things that I could not do before, like walking on a treadmill, biking (stationary) and climbing mountains on a step machine...all done with some compassion for this old man. He changes the workout weekly and they are challenging, but built on the previous week's work. Occasionally I need a good kick in the butt, but the encouragement I receive gets me through some difficult moves or lifts. I'm going back for more. Ben is one heck of a trainer and I have no qualms recommending him to anyone who asks. It's working for me." - John O.

  "My intention when I hired Ben was to lose weight and increase my strength. I was under the impression that I would be doing a lot of cardio and weight lifting. Tuesdays every week for three months was the first day of the week that I would meet with Ben. He would have some crazy workouts for me. They were extremely difficult to do in the beginning, but by the end of the week I was able to perform them by myself. I renamed Tuesdays "Crazy A@$ Tuesdays" because I was not sure what we would be doing.  However, I looked forward to Tuesdays. I was able to determine where I was improving and where I still needed to get to. I was able to to improve in my strength , flexibility, stability, and lost around twenty pounds. I have been able to keep the weight off and also lose a few more pounds. Ben is very knowledgeable and well versed in the field of personal training. I would recommend Ben to any of my family an friends, along with the fact that I will rehire him in the future to help motivate me along." - Chuck N.

"Ben is a great trainer! He makes each session enjoyable yet still pushes me to go beyond what I thought my limits were. When I first started with Ben, I had knee pain and could hardly use stairs without pain. Now my knees are fine, and I am able to do lunges, squats, and jumps with no pain. He is extremely supportive both during the session and after. He has great ideas on how to incorporate exercise and nutrition into your life." - Terry B.

"When I initially started training with Ben, my focus was not on weight loss, but more on pushing past the plateau that I had encountered in my own weight loss journey. Having dropped the majority of the weight already, I knew I needed a change in my routine and mindset, to keep the progress going. I've been working with Ben for over three years now and the reason I continue is that no two weeks are ever the same. Each session has different focus. My relationship with Ben provides me with the accountability and extra push that I need to get out of my comfort zone. It's a great feeling to revisit a workout several weeks or months later to see the progress made, either through extra reps or increased weight settings! I would highly recommend anyone looking for a personal trainer to reach out to Ben." - Tami P.

 "My Experience was more than I expected. Not only did I create a healthier me, but I also learned. I am stronger than I thought. The personal training is the best I've ever received - consistent and very professional. I was very pleased with the entire experience." - Michele W.

 "I have been training with Bam Fit LLC for a long time and plan to continue training for years to come. My training has given me strength, balance, and endurance that I never had before." - Colleen S.
