Ben is an exercise physiologist, he holds certifications from the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), and the National Athletic Trainers Association (NATA). After travels through Pennsylvania, Virginia, Kentucky, Georgia, Alabama and Florida for school and work he has been in the Pittsburgh area since 2004.
Ben is a podcaster with @FitLabPGH and @_Mov2Liv. The ethos of the podcasts is "movement is a lifestyle, not just an activity". @FitLabPGH also does 1 minute movement tips and lifestyle hacks every MWF for FitLabPGH
The idea for @FitLabPGH came during a run with his dogs when he realized that there were a variety of national fitness and movement focused podcasts, but none limited exclusively to Pittsburgh people, business and activities. @_Mov2Liv has the idea to break down knowledge silos by interviewing with professionals in the movement and exercise field. The goal is to provide information for other professionals, and also for amateur aficionados.
