Lisa - 15 weeks
What an amazing 15 week transformation towards Lisa's first bikini competition. Through competition prep she was able to learn more about training and nutrition to completely change her physique. Leaner, stronger and happier within her own skin. Very proud of her hard work and determination.
Nic - 14 weeks
Nic after his first Jnr Physique show where he placed top 3 and qualified for the UKBFF British Championships 2015.
Nic - 2 years - UKBFF British Champion
When Nic and I first met he told me that he wanted to compete in Men's Physique. Nic had a great first contest season in 2015 - coming 3rd in a local qualifier receiving an invite to the British Championships - where he placed 16th. We worked closely together on the off season from late last year until about March/April time this year when contest prep started again. We focused on his weak areas and due to a photoshoot Nic started dieting about 23 weeks ago. We entered into the Kent Klassic in August where Nic placed 2nd out of 20 competitors - again getting an invite to the British Championships. The focus then switched to improvements that needed to be made if Nic was going to stand any chance of reaching top 6 in the UK. This included posing/ stage presence, ab-control and conditioning. He was actually lighter on stage this year but conditioned on a whole new level and won the UKBFF British Championship within two years of competing. If you set your mind to something you can achieve it if you really want to. It may take 6 months it may take 16 years - but no one's going to give you something amazing for free. Sometimes things are going to be very hard work and this is an example of pure hard work and dedication for the last two years on and off. I hope it inspires some guys out there that you can achieve great things. Surround yourself with like minded, positive humble people. Don't let those words "yeah, but..." KILL your dreams.
Chloe - 8 weeks
Chloe's 8 week transformation for her first UKBFF junior bikini competition. Chloe was well into her training before she came on board with Team Benbo, but always wanted to get in condition for a bikini show. We coached Chloe across an 8 week period with weekly check-ins, then daily check-ins on peak week leading up to the show. As you can see from the pictures Chloe increased her lean muscle whilst decreasing her body fat percentage enabling her to have a great first showing in her bikini competition. We are very pleased with Chloe's results and look forward to working with her in the future if she wishes to progress into more competition.
Pat - 8 months
Pat reached his goal of competing in 2016 after fighting personal battles of losing two close family members in quick succession. Through busy working weeks and people telling him he couldn't do it - Pat proved people wrong against all odds. Pat changed his body composition through hard training, planned nutrition and true determination. It was a proud moment to see him compete at the UKBFF Sugar Classic in Men's Physique. We look forward to working together further in the future.

Consistency won in the end and Kane nailed his prep bringing a very conditioned look to the stage, which we are very proud of.

His goal was always to step onto the stage to compete but he was looking for people to look after his interests and support him in that goal. Alex had a great first showing and hit great condition with some tweaking needed towards the end of his prep. We are looking forward to seeing him compete again this year with us.
Alex - 16 weeks
Alex - after a 16 week contest prep leading into the UKBFF West Midlands Championships 2016 - where he placed third and received an invitation to compete at the British Finals.

Oli completed a Competition Prep with Team Benbo to compete at his first UKBFF Men's Physique show; being in tall class Oli managed to drop 3 stone in 15 weeks to peak for his first competition. We had to work on some stubborn body fat areas to get him in the best shape possible and we are very proud of what he achieved. Similar to other clients Oli was well trained in the gym but seeked support to get him on that big stage and I think you'd agree he transformed his physique in a big way!
Agnes - 6 weeks
Agnes, after only 6 weeks on a Team Benbo tailored programme. Goes to show ladies - you don't need those FAD shake diets.

LEWIS - 6 months
Lewis initially won a free tailored program taking part in one of our Facebook competitions. He recently had a newborn child with his partner and found himself out of shape and unhappy with his physique. We had to adapt the plan to carry out training on average three times per week due to his other commitments. Lewis has since completed two further tailored programs progressing his physique usually having one cheat meal per week for a reprieve. In 6-7 months Lewis has transformed his body losing over 17lbs and improved his lifestyle for the better!
Pete - 13 weeks
Pete approached TeamBenbo with the aim to get his abs out for his 40th birthday. We did this with the online coaching approach taking into consideration Pete's allergies and previous heart surgery. In total it took 13 weeks and Pete worked incredibly hard to achieve his condition! It just goes to show that age is just a number and if you really want to push your body to a new level you certainly can! Huge congrats Pete - now onto the next stage of goal setting - your muscle gain program.
Dan - 12 weeks

Dan - 8 weeks
Dan approached Team Benbo intending to get more muscle definition for a couple of up and coming holidays abroad. Dan has a very busy lifestyle and would admit that some of the weeks weren't exactly to the coaching plan; however with a favorable balance towards the program Dan dropped his body fat percentage and increased his muscle tissue creating a more defined physique as you can see.
Marlon - 8 weeks
Marlon approached Team Benbo for a Competition Prep; however the show he wanted to enter was only 8 weeks away. Marlon was a well trained person anyway but wanted assistance with getting to the big stage to compete in his first Men's Physique show. We had to get to work pretty rapidly and the results speak for themselves. Marlon worked very hard; 8 weeks wasn't ideal for a competition prep for a first show however I think you'd agree we achieved an awesome aesthetic look for a first competition!
Steve - 12 weeks
Steve completed an 8 week tailored programme with Team Benbo before getting a re-assessment to progress onto a new plan. Steve was unhappy with his shape and had lost all motivation. After receiving a programme from us with some direction Steve found his new love for training and is currently on his second plan as we speak. As you can see from his pictures he dropped body fat tissue and increased his lean mass.
Erhan - 5 months
I've worked with Erhan on and off for five months now. Our work has included online coaching with diet check-ins and four weeks of personal training to learn some specific training knowledge for use in the future. His average gym time was 3-4 times per week and he subsequently changed his lifestyle - juggling family commitments & business. Erhan will tell you that he had ups and downs and total relapses at times...BUT he persevered until he achieved his goal.

I met Carl in the gym and we shared the same passion for bodybuilding - I found out that one of his goals was to do a show but he didn't really believe in himself. I convinced him to do a competition under some coaching guidance and this is what happened...Carl won his junior bodybuilding show at the Pure Elite Hayes show receiving his pro card. At only 23 years old it's clear Carl has a very bright future in bodybuilding. It was a pleasure seeing him reach his full potential during his first contest prep.

As a result in less than a month he dropped 11lb whilst increasing his lifts; in fact he achieved personal bests in the gym and at his competition.
Posing & presentation classes
Some of the team in action during some posing sessions - full details on posing classes can be found on the personal training tab.
Diet was very good and I was able to alternate different meals with other options Ben suggested if I didn't fancy certain foods that day, training was on point and loved the strategy and focus it gave me.
I spoke to Ben as I was fed up of feeling crappy all the time. My diet was awful and the only time I went in a gym was if I was lost. Now I'm using the gym 4-6 times a week, I've got more energy and I'm feeling much stronger.
Coming from a very complex health background I have to be careful with certain foods and supplements. Ben took the time to taylor a plan that would suit me and my guidelines. I'm 4 days in and have already dropped 3kg.
Amy Kate Wood
I have gone from being a dedicated couch potato (& custard cream addict!) and skeptical as to whether I would cope with the change of lifestyle, to loving the healthy eating & looking forward to going to the gym!
Very professional and friendly team with years of experience and lot of knowledge, always ready to answer any questions. Now my motivation is back and I know I have best coaching team to help me.
Absolutely fantastic, most knowledgeable PT I've ever come across and trained with! No pressure selling for the next session or plan, just focused on making sure you get 110% out of the session in hand. Highly recommend!
Just completed a 12 week plan and couldn't fault the service from Team Benbo! Supportive and always there whenever I needed advice through out the whole thing! 100% recommend them!
