Actioneers Spotlight: Meet Ben Greenfield


kona_ironman_still_2.jpg

A fitness inspiration, coach, mentor, ambitious athlete and wellness consultant, Ben Greenfield coaches and trains individuals for weight loss, lean muscle gain, holistic wellness, and sports performance, both from his physical location in Spokane, Washington and Coeur D’ Alene, Idaho, as well as all over the world via online training and consulting.

In 2008, Ben was nominated by the NSCA as America’s top personal trainer, and in 2013, Ben was voted as one of the top 100 most influential individuals in health and fitness.

Orginally from Lewiston, Idaho, Ben’s goal in life is to make healthy living inspiring, entertaining and educational, and his “rebel yell” goes like this:

“I love getting fit, feeling good about the way my body looks, and fulfilling my deep-seeded drive to live life to the fullest by achieving difficult feats of physical performance. But I was fed up with feeling like crap from all the extreme exercising, strange foods, feeling of constant stress and soreness, and worry about the toll my hectic lifestyle was taking on my body. So I have found a way of training, eating and living that is perfectly healthy and natural, but still allows me to look, feel and perform at my peak capabilities.”

Ben Greenfield is excited to be a 2014 Action Wipes ambassador, (aka an Actioener!) so that he can tell the world why he smells like a clean, wonderful spa when he does nasty, dirty things. Like tackle the Super Spartan, the Mountain Canyon Games Adventure Race, or the Seattle Tough Mudder this year.
