I thoroughly enjoy exercising for both its physical and mental benefits and ‘gym junkie’ springs to mind with most of my friends. However I developed early onset osteoarthritis in my 50’s and assumed ...I would have to cease most physical activities. My G.P., whose motto is “use it or lose it” encouraged me to see an Exercise Physiologist.

I have now trained with Ben at EPnet for the last two years. Ben specialises and tailors exercises to an individual’s capabilities and needs and carefully plans a client’s potential for improvement.

Ben offers guidance in a holistic approach to wellbeing through exercise and nutrition. He is professional, respectful, kind, patient and well learned in his field, while making exercise fun and inspirational.

Before I met Ben I could not walk 50m without immense pain- seriously! Recently on holidays I hiked a 5km round trip which included scaling a granite monolith. For myself this was a massive and enjoyable achievement. My progress is steady and improving, while building and sustaining strength so that I am more than prepared for whatever life throws at me in my future.

I highly recommend Ben @ EPnet without any hesitation. Ben is passionate and committed to helping people improve their wellbeing in life.

I started training with Ben on a recommendation from an orthopaedic surgeon to try and improve a shoulder injury following a car accident, in a last ditch effort to avoid going under the knife. I had... previously tried several other treatments including Physio and steroid injections over the course of about a year. I received the all clear from the surgeon after working with Ben over several months and thankfully no longer need the surgery. I have continued working with Ben to continue to improve my general health and wellbeing. Ben always delivers challenging but rewarding sessions, and takes the time to explain the "why" behind his programs and activities. See More

A really good report on the challenges post biggest loser that several contestants faced. Not only coming up against their old habits and lifestyle, but facing changes in their metabolism, and not for the better.
