For the better part of a decade Benjamin dedicated himself to his career as a fine dining chef, both here in Australia and in Europe.
Accumulating years of 60-plus hour weeks being hunched over a bench, he developed chronic lower back pain and was forced to wear a brace on a daily basis just to accomplish simple daily tasks. Benjamin’s physiotherapist recommended he take up Pilates to combat the damage that had been done and he quickly developed a passion for the discipline, which in turn prompted him to enrol at National Pilates Training and obtain his Diploma in 2012.
Benjamin’s passion for the method is forever developing and he has firm plans to further himself as an instructor and quench his lust for knowledge through continued professional development. Currently Benjamin is teaching the Introduction to Anatomy for National Pilates Training where his view its to teach the basics through the most practical way possible. On top of this Benjamin is also working with players from the Western Crusaders American Football club to help support their strength and flexibility for the up and coming season.
