About The Founder of FitLifeFanatics


Hey there fellow gym goer!

My name is Ben and I am the founder of FitLifeFanatics.

In 2010, I packed up my bags and left my hometown of Kansas city to go off to college in a little town named Springfield to study business.

Yeah literally my first semester in, I was in business classes. Not ideal… And definitely not what I wanted to do, The good news is, I quickly figured that out. My 2nd semester in, I switched my degree and started studying sports and physical training. I was hooked!

In May of 2014 I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Athletic Science from Missouri State University.

Thing is.. I knew I wanted more. I wanted to educate and learn as much as I possibly could about this field. So I decided to to continue my education and went on to receive my Masters in Athletic Training.

After school, I became a personal trainer and started personal training full time. I eventually started to move into sports training for athletes and started training athletes in strength training. This was my full time job for almost 2 years. I loved every second of it.

This is what started it all. I became obsessed with working out, fitness, strength training, and living the best most happy life that I possibly could. I was devoted towards becoming a better me and helping others become the best person that they could be.

After receiving my Masters Degree from Missouri State University, I knew helping others and sharing my knowledge was the path for me. This is what made me start Fitlifefanatics.com.

At first I started Fitlifefanatics alone and planned to share only my knowledge here to my readers but I quickly discovered that there are many topics that I wanted to cover that I was not an expert on.

For this reason, I brought on several credentialed experts to cover the topics that I was not an expert in but that I felt would be useful to my readers.
