Fitness Friend Ben has been such a game changer for my overall health and wellness. Ben’s positive attitude and gentle encouragement really helps me keep going. I have been working out with Ben consistently for 18+ months and have gained so much strength and confidence with his help.

I had no idea how good a workout I could get in my home with no equipment of my own. And, the difference of working with a pro like Ben Smith, Fitness Friend, was remarkable. Getting out of my old routines and into the customized workouts designed by Ben have made me more flexible and stronger at the same time. I get so much more out of the time spent exercising.

Ben is an amazing trainer. His workout sessions are well planned, efficient and geared towards my fitness goals. He ensures that movements are done correctly and always takes the time to answer my questions. The in-home sessions make working out much more convenient. I highly recommend Ben.

Ben’s workouts are always enjoyable because there’s plenty of variety and it’s never boring. Ben is able to get me to work my hardest each session. I feel great and can notice my improvements. I would tell anyone starting to exercise to use a personal trainer, you will feel better about each workout and get the most out of an hour.

I find Ben to be an outstanding personal trainer. He took the time to get to know me and understand my personal goals as well as my concerns/constraints. As a result, he is great at tailoring the workouts to my needs. He is an engaging and motivational trainer who makes workouts fun! I would recommend him to anyone who is interested in a more customized personal approach to fitness.

We love working out with Fitness Friend! It’s so convenient not having to leave our house to go workout at the gym. They bring the gym to us at our house!

I’ve been working out with Ben for about 6 months now and couldn’t be happier. When we started, I could barely do ten push ups and would be winded after a few jumping jacks. Today, I am 17lbs lighter, down a couple of sizes, and can crank out pushups, squats, jumping jacks, etc without a problem. I look and feel much better to Ben’s motivation and hard work.

Plus, it couldn’t be more convenient as he comes to my office with all the necessary equipment and trains me on the spot.

On top of all of that, Ben is a great guy and a pleasure to be around…. Great stuff folks.

Ben is a terrific motivator, coach and companion for wellness. He brings enthusiasm, mindfulness and focus to our weekly hour together. He changes the exercises so I make progress, but get to experience variety. His knowledge of physiology, exercise and human behavior makes each work out count. I am a super busy business executive and value his efficiency and the results he is helping me to achieve.

Ben has been incredibly knowledgeable and dedicated to helping me achieve my fitness goals. He is always positive and makes training fun. I’ve always felt comfortable being honest with him about my goals and physical restrictions. It’s great that he can work around my busy schedule. Since I began training with Ben, I feel stronger physically and mentally. I am a happier person and can now say I enjoy working out. I love learning and improving upon exercises he has taught me. Ben takes his time to really explain the exercise and how you will benefit. He also explains how each exercise is forcing your body to make changes internally. I found this very interesting! I now have a more toned body and cannot wait to see more improvements!
