Ben is functional performance coach. He is an expert in understanding how to break down movement in any sport or activity, and understand what happens to the bones, joints and muscles when they function properly as well as highlighting dysfunctions when they occur.

Ben currently delivers the Tennis Academy Strength & Condition Programme at Oxstalls Sports Complex in Gloucester, as well as working with Tennis programmes at St Peters High School in Gloucester and the East Glos Club in Cheltenham.
