I have worked with Ben James for the last six months at Strait Fitness in Port Angeles, WA, participating in both individual and group sessions. I benefited from both experiences, and particularly enjoyed the variety and flexibility of the group work. During our training, I have found Ben to be professional and courteous at all times. He is an incredibly positive person who has extensive background knowledge in fitness and nutrition. Since working with him I have more energy, my clothes fit better, and I have improved my overall muscle strength and tone.
Ben works with clients to meet their goals. For example, I wanted to train for a half marathon, so Ben worked with me to develop muscles needed for running and provided workouts that would help me achieve that goal. Within a few weeks, my cardiovascular system had improved and I was adding mileage. In addition, Ben took the time to check in on my fitness goals to ensure I was progressing, and addressed any concerns I had. While working with a client, Ben is very attentive and gives that person or group complete attention. Ben conscientiously attends to personal injuries and concerns, and focuses on correct form, whole body exercise, and healthy eating habits. Overall, he takes a very balanced approach to fitness and I appreciate his contribution to my healthier lifestyle. I would enthusiastically recommend Ben James@StraitFitness as apersonal trainer.
