Testimonials

  • "I attend lunchtime fitness sessions held by Ben from Project Active with a number of my colleagues. They are a great way to train, adding variety, encouragement and planning to a session, sometimes with a bit of healthy competition and always conducted in a good spirit. As an F1 engineer working with the race and test teams I don't have a lot of time, but I really enjoy the sessions which fit well around work and always feel well thought out. Normally a runner, it's been a plus for me to include other activities in my routine and I always feel I've had a workout."

    -Dom H, Wiliams F1 (Autumn 2012)

  • “I have been using Project Active for PT sessions for about 4 years now. I am far too lazy to exercise off my own bat, and so I need the discipline that Ben provides. My goal is as simple as all-round health and keeping trim, and by doing these sessions, I have, almost without realising it, become fit enough to complete a 90 mile bike ride for charity which I actually thoroughly enjoyed. As a desk-based worker I also find the sessions very good for ensuring I remain mobile. Thoroughly recommended!”

    - Carolyn F, (Programme Manager & Team Leader), Witney (Spring 2013)

  • "I engaged Ben's services through his long-standing reputation and flexibility around work hours for Personal Training sessions to fit in with a hectic work schedule and manic family life. The aim was simple - Recover from a slipped disc and lost fitness levels. Without over-egging it was life-changing for me. I could barely walk when we started and I'm running 10km several times a week now and living a much healthier life. Ben's careful observation of tailored workout sessions - ensuring everything was aligned and progressing properly"

    -Jon Goldsmith, 42 yrs, Tour Agent, Witney

  • "It has been a great four years with Ben, I have entered events that I would never have thought I could do and met other like-minded people at his fitness classes and his organized Events - such as Hadrian’s Wall walk and the 3 Yorkshire peaks. He has a great passion for his job and this in turn transfers to the client. Next Year I will be doing my first Triathalon and my first 100-mile road bike sportive event. This would not be possible without Ben's encouragement and his positive attitude. Ben is professional/friendly /knowledgeable and accurate knowledge of injuries and ways of resolving such matters"

    -Rahul Patel, 46 yrs , Dentist, Witney, Oxon

  • "Ben run's team sessions at my work & I have personal training with him Ben explained the bigger picture of how we will build my strength and confidence back first and then created short sessions around my lunchtimes at work. Every exercise we did he corrected, helped me understand when I could push myself more and when to reign it back a bit. I used to be really into sports and HIIT style sessions but postpartum I couldn't really trust my body as much as before; my muscles felt so out of place. Although the exercises we are doing seem simple; with the right form, the right amount of repetitions and encouragement at the end of every session I feel as good as I used to after a HIIT session. I like his expertise and professionalism. He explains what's going on with my muscles and pushes me when I don't think I can go any further. It's a nice balance between breaking physical and mental barriers. I was skeptical at first because having always been into sports and fitness I felt comfortable in my workouts but Ben has really brought my confidence back - particularly postpartum I felt a little lost with what I could and couldn't do. I also like that he has a plan and we can build up setting my goals!"
