Hi, I'm Ben.

  • 12+ years of experience as a certified, professional personal trainer

  • Former college athlete

  • North Carolina native

  • Dedicated to continual learning 

  • Proud husband and dog dad!


I am passionate about helping real people experience real results!  


I graduated from Appalachian State University in 2007 with a bachelor's degree in Exercise Science.  While at Appalachian State, I was a member of the Track and Field Team, which won four Southern Conference Championships. 


I later received a master's degree in Exercise Physiology from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG).  While at UNCG, I served as a volunteer graduate assistant for the Strength and Conditioning department and also taught undergraduate-level Exercise Physiology courses.

I have trained clients as a Personal Trainer for more than 12 years, with experience working at Greensboro Country Club, Alamance Country Club and Downtown Fitness on Elm in Greensboro.  In 2019, I opened Ben Austin Personal Training and love working with my clients in-person and virtually. 


I have experience working with people with a wide variety of fitness levels.  From Division I collegiate athletes to persons with advanced Parkinson's disease ... and many in between.
