Ben competed as one of the top-ranked amateur triathletes in the world, completing over 120 races and 12 Ironman triathlons while racing for the elite Team Timex multisport team, winning gold medal for the USA in long course triathlon, and leading squads of swim, bike, and run enthusiasts in guided adventures through Hawaii, Thailand, Japan and beyond.
Eventually, Ben became the father of twin sons and pivoted into media, writing, speaking, and consulting, launching one of the world’s first fitness podcasts, becoming a New York Times bestselling author of “Beyond Training” and 13 books, designing and creating the Christian Gratitude Journal, and starting a blog that now reaches over a million rabid fans each month. During this time, while making a name for himself as a relentless self-experimenter and biohacker, Ben became a professional obstacle course racer; completing the coveted Spartan Delta; training with the Navy SEALs; competing across the globe in open water swims, mountain runs, and adventure races; winning multiple USA bowhunting competitions; and appearing on the planet's toughest reality TV shows.
In 2013 and 2014, Ben was named as one of the world’s top 100 most influential people in health and fitness, and by 2015, Ben was coaching the world’s top CEO’s, chefs, biohackers, poker players, tennis, motocross and endurance competitors, and professional athletes from the UFC, the NHL, the NBA, the NFL and beyond—all while advising and investing in top companies in the health, fitness, and nutrition industry. In 2016, he joined Spartan SGX as one of its certified coaches.
