Coach Benjamin Neithercut

Originally from Chicago, Ben is new to Colorado. He grew up playing hockey, football and lacrosse. After school he became a chef. Kitchen life took its toll on both his physical and mental health. In 2010 he dedicated his life to improving his health, nutrition and fitness. 

The impact of this was so powerful that in 2013 he became a trainer and coach. Since 2010 he has worked alongside and studied under many of the top trainers, yogis and coaches in their fields; from professional ballet dancers and acrobats to physical therapists and a former Marine Corp trainer. 

Ben has spent many years and hours studying, researching, coaching and building human optimization; mobility, biology, strength, nutrition, recovery, anatomy, training styles and methodologies. He uses his fitness to take full advantage of Colorado's natural beauty and adventures.
