I’ve been working with Ben for over a year now and he’s already brought me up to levels of fitness I wouldn’t have been able to achieve on my own. He’s coached me patiently through injury and in to a top 5 position in 3 ultras. The variety in his weekly plans are great, no two weeks are the same, which means that training for races is as much of a fun process as competing in the races.
I initially got in contact with Ben in November 2018 telling him I had my first marathon in April, help! Ben has written weekly plans for me since the middle of November and they have been fantastic. They have been varyed, interesting and most importantly crucial to the improvement s experienced in such a short amount of time. No matter if I have a plan related question, a general running query or seeking advice on equipment Ben is always quick to respond. I can't thank him enough for his efforts and have not hesitation to use his coaching services for getting me in the best shape for the Berlin and Singapore marathons later this year (2019) where I hope to achieve sub 3:45.
Towards the end of last year, I hit a brick wall with my running. Just by Chance I happened to stumble across Ben’s YouTube channel. I was completely hooked, watching all the content in one sitting.The very next day I got in touch and haven’t looked back.
Ben’s coaching the past 6 months have been fantastic, always there for support, advice and able to change anything at a moments notice. I’ve seen so much progression following his guidance. Making me believe I reach all my goals over 5k to half marathon.
I can’t thank him Ben enough and is the big reason I love my running again. Looking forward to a long partnership with plenty of great results
