Leap Athletic

Ben’s all about getting you moving your best.  He completed his Bachelor of Sport and Exercise at Massey in 2022, and has experience working with a range of clients from high level athletes, to those with compromised health.  

Ben believes that everyone who participates in physical activity is a “athlete”, with their own unique goals and challenges.  For one person it may be running really fast, for another it may be being able to walk at all - they’re both athletes he can help.  

Whether you’re starting your fitness journey, or wanting to take it to the next level, taking that next step is scary.  It’s important to have someone in your corner so you can be comfortable taking that leap towards your goals. 

Hence the name - Leap Athletic
