What my Clients say:

“I have been attending personal training sessions with Ben regularly for the past three years. Following hip replacement surgery, I felt I needed the reassurance and guidance that a personal trainer would give me. Ben has been instrumental in building my confidence when exercising in the gym. Ben has pushed me further than I ever thought possible. I have complete trust in Ben’s ability as a personal trainer. Without his expert knowledge and guidance, I most certainly would not be at my current level of fitness. His personable nature ensures his sessions are demanding yet enjoyable, reflective throughout and adapting his session plan if necessary.”

What my Clients say:

"I have trained with Ben Beer for the past 3 years. When I first joined the gym I was lacking in confidence, and I was extremely unfit and overweight. Ben worked in partnership with me to build an fitness training program that was specific to my needs; altering it effectively as my fitness increased and my weight decreased. He was, and is, always there for advice and support during PT sessions, and on a day to day basis, and provides me with support and guidance. I have moved from a very unfit office bound worker to a very fit and healthy 68 year old with his support and he has become both a friend and a valued personal trainer over the 3 years and I am so grateful for his hard work with me."

Alex Fox

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

As I used to be a dancer for Plymouth raiders, and the British basketball league, being fit and healthy has always been a priority for me. After working as a receptionist in the leisure industry I felt like I was on the wrong side of the fence. I enjoyed training and coaching people and embarked on becoming a personal trainer.

I aim to inspire people to take control of their health through fun and interactive sessions. I feel that training has a huge knock on effect on our daily lives. Being more active and physically able brings positive changes so that you feel that you can live better and feel fabulous.

I always look forward to our sessions, and leave feeling more positive.”

Esmée Laville

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

Everything we do, how we act, how we feel and how we motivate ourselves all stems from one place: our mind. Mindset is a very powerful thing and it can be the thing that sets limits for yourself or it can be what drives you to strive for the best and surpass those limits reaching towards your true potential. This is what I want to help you with, adapting your mindset to reboot your fitness and mental wellbeing, enabling you to celebrate what your body can do instead of making it feel like fitness is a chore.

I have an extreme passion for strength training, with personal experience in this completely transforming my own confidence. There is so much more to fitness and exercise than purely aiming to reach a certain number on the scales. I can help you focus on making yourself feel strong and powerful as well as training your mind and body to work together in a way that suits you and your goals.

My qualifications

  • Level 3 Personal trainer
  • Level 2 Fitness instructor

She has also helped me improve my own knowledge about my training and understanding how my own body works, constantly reassuring me that I can and will reach my goals, she has really helped me believe in my own potential.”
