Meet Ben Greenfield.

Raised in rural North Idaho, he was homeschooled K-12. He was a complete nerd. President of the chess club, played violin for 13 years, wrote fantasy fiction and spent most of his childhood years with his nose in a book.

Ben graduated at 15. He began college at 16, playing singles and doubles for the men’s tennis team. For four years, Ben studied anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, pharmaceuticals, microbiology, biochemistry and nutrition, eventually rising to the top of his class, completing an internship at Duke University and the National Football League, then graduating in 2004 at 20 years old as the top senior in his class at University of Idaho – all while working as a bartender, personal trainer, lab assistant, nutritionist, spinning instructor, athletic trainer and strength and conditioning coach.

While attaining a 4.0 GPA in his advanced science courses, he competed as president of the triathlon club, middle for the men’s volleyball team, holeset for the water polo team and was a muscle-bound bodybuilder at 215 pounds and 3% body fat.

Ben was then accepted into six medical schools, but opted to instead attain a master’s degree in exercise physiology and biomechanics, after which, in 2005, he leapt hardcore into the fitness world, partnering with physicians and opening a series of personal training studios, gyms and physiology and biomechanics labs across North Idaho and Eastern Washington, and eventually being voted as America’s top personal trainer in 2008. While building his empire in the brick-and-mortar fitness industry, Ben competed as one of the top ranked amateur triathletes in the world, completing over 120 races and 12 Ironman triathlons while racing for the elite Team Timex multisport team, winning gold medal for the USA in long course triathlon, and leading squads of swim, bike and run enthusiasts in guided adventures through Hawaii, Thailand, Japan and beyond.

Eventually, Ben became the father of twin sons and pivoted into media, writing, speaking and consulting, launching one of the world’s first fitness podcasts, becoming a New York Times bestselling author of “Beyond Training” and 13 books, designing and creating the Christian Gratitude Journal , and starting a blog that now reaches over a million rabid fans each month. During this time, while making a name for himself as a relentless self-experimenter and biohacker, Ben became a professional obstacle course racer, completing the coveted Spartan Delta, training with the Navy SEALs, competing across the globe in open water swims, mountain runs and adventure races, winning multiple USA bowhunting competitions, and appearing on the planet’s toughest reality TV shows. In 2013 and 2014, Ben was named as one of the world’s top 100 most influential people in health and fitness, and by 2015, Ben was coaching the world’s top CEO’s, chefs, biohackers, poker players, tennis, motocross and endurance competitors, and professional athletes from the UFC, the NHL, the NBA, the NFL and beyond – all while advising and investing in top companies in the health, fitness and nutrition industry.

  1. Ben this is both frightening, and intriguing. I wasn't sure what to think or where I stood until the last couple of words of your song. "I'm no weirdo, I want a perfect body, I don't care if it hurts". Okay Ben, I'm ready to take the plunge, I spoke with US Stem Cell Clinic. What exactly can I expect from the stem cell injections, I've been extremely active in sports all my life until I injured my back about 15 years ago. Now I have to be careful about taking damn laundry out the dryer. What can stem cell injection into my lower back do or should I think more on terms of intravenous?
    I'm also wondering if you were serious about your statement "If you want to know how to inject stem cells into your blood stream, and what happens afterwards, I'm your man!" Well, I WANT TO KNOW!

  2. what a complete joke
    Talks about how simple/easy it is for the average person to "operate at full capacity"
    Then we see a guy who works at home, his wife cooks his meals, he gets endless free supplements and gear, his gym is at home, has a home sauna and pool, and makes money from affiliate links.

    try working a 9-5 job, prepping your OWN meals, biking to and from work and the gym, with nobody else to take care of your housework.

    This is out of reach for 99% of people who live in the real world.

  3. Loved this video Ben. Gave me a ton more context on you. I think a lot of people jump to conclusion and judge you before knowing the full you. Nice work. Keep doing you.

  4. The razor thin line between genius and madness is sometimes just really hard to make out. Brilliant video for all of the boundaries he's clearly eager to push and explore…aaaaand hilarious!

  5. He's a bit tapped, think he's Aspergers – geeking out and marketing fairly accurate info and getting on the stem cell money train – which is 90% bs and 10% breakthrough but you have to target, skip the b-cell and fat cell and go for amniotic placental or rabbit cell therapy on the cheap – they get results – his diet is super clean tho

  6. Ben – reading your site, I thought you'd be a complete arrogant jerk. Watching this vid. I get that you are just a nutbag. Rock-on dude. And let's rewrite your personal site so it isn't so offputting! Happy to help. PM me…

  7. After listening to him on joe rogan for 3 hours i learned 1 thing about this guy. He's a pretentious egomaniacal dick. If you did something he did it better. if you say something is awesome he disagrees.
