Ben was transformational for me

Ben was transformational for me, guiding me through his deep knowledge of training physiology, technique, equipment and when to ‘keep my powder dry’. We designed a training program that fitted my lifestyle and sporting ambitions, in my view coaching from Ben was hugely successful and I thoroughly enjoyed every part of the process seeing real results that I only would have dreamt of a year earlier. I found Ben to be very responsive, communicative and also had a great sense of humour and perspective when things got tough.

Amazing attention to detail

Ben was my paddle coach for the C2C longest day. Ben’s 3 times Olympian K1 exploits speak for themselves, but prior to that he was a white water paddler, multi-sporter, and ironman athlete. This makes him an ideal coach for the C2C. About 95% of the river section is essentially flat water paddling requiring an efficient paddling technique. However, the white water sections, although technically only grade 2, are not to be taken lightly. I learnt so much paddling on the Mohaka with Ben. Drawing from his high performance sport background and psychology qualifications, he presented a holistic approach to the process of training that greatly informed how I prepared for the C2C. As well as an overall coaching framework, Ben also has an amazing attention to detail and really helps you along the journey.
