Ben Longley is the owner and one of the personal trainers here at The Fit Stop. He has been a PT for over 13 years and has worked with hundreds of clients over that time in both a private and group setting. Ben has a certificate IV in fitness & studied Health Science (Human anatomy & physiology) at La Trobe University.
He is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) with the National Strength & Conditioning Association (NSCA) and is certified to conduct the Functional Movement Screen (FMS), a ranking and grading system that screens movement quality and movement patterns that are key to normal function & injury prevention. The FMS is used world wide amongst professional athletes and sporting teams including NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA, as well as Special Ops military personnel.
Ben is also a Precision Nutrition certified Level 1 coach. Ben has always had a strong interest in the human body and the many facets of health, fitness, performance & nutrition. He adopts a mindset of ‘constant learning’, with a love & appreciation of science and critical thinking, and an open mind that likes to ‘think outside the box’.
Ben has an eclectic approach to his training style, and draws from various training modalities to help his clients reach their goals, ranging from:
– General Strength & Conditioning
– ‘Functional Movement’
– Corrective exercise & rehab
– Martial Arts (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Kickboxing)
Whilst cliched, the Bruce Lee quote ‘Adopt what is useful, reject what is useless’ has always resonated with Ben and perfectly describes his approach to health, fitness, training and life in general. Ben is married with 3 boys aged 12, 8 and 6 so needs to stay fit & strong to keep up with them!
