Ben grew up in the southern Sydney suburb of Cronulla, where he excelled in athletics, basketball and rugby league during his formative years. Post schooling he went on with his rugby league to play professionally for the Cronulla Sharks, in Brisbane and in Auckland.
Retiring early from football Ben focused his energy on a career in the Fitness industry. Opening his first facility in 2005 in Mosman. For 9 years Ben’s Mosman studio was one of the busiest in Sydney, performing over 750 high quality personal training sessions a week. On the back of this studio’s success Ben also opened gyms in the neighbouring areas of Neutral Bay and North Sydney.
Whilst training for an Ultra-marathon in 2010 Ben made the acquaintance of one of Sydneys leading Yoga teachers Kate Kendall. It was this meeting that influenced Ben’s career to change trajectory. He sold his 3 personal training/ fitness businesses in 2012 to commit to a new concept in health.
In March 2013 Flow Athletic opened, bringing a unique mix of strength , fitness and Yoga to the marketplace. Ben now spends the majority of his time on the growth of Flow. In 2015 Flow Athletic won the Telstra Start up of the year. With 2 more studios scheduled to roll out within the next 12 month, Flow Athletic plans on opening up another 5 studios in the next 3 years
