Ben Lee - Fitness Technician

Ben Lee

Fitness Technician

I joined the team at Walker Methodist Place as fitness technician in spring of 2020. Previously, I worked at a rehab company, where I quickly recognized the important role physical fitness has for older adults living a full life and found my passion.

In college, I studied anatomy and physiology, thinking I’d work with athletes. Instead, I found myself helping people with preexisting health issues and discovering the best ways to improve the health of those with injuries and limitations. Before coming to Walker Methodist Place, I worked with the YWCA for more than 20 years. During this time, I ran my own training company and yoga business. Working for nonprofits allowed me to experience a variety of projects, trainings, seminars, and day-to-day operations. As a small business owner, I learned the necessity of customer service, time management, technology, and communication.

At Walker Methodist Place, I’ve produced on-demand fitness and wellness videos for members and residents to access any time. By overseeing the fitness center, I help ensure members are happy and things run smoothly. I also lead group exercises, personal training sessions, and provide education about using equipment. My goal is to help residents and members improve and maintain their health and independence. I believe the best thing I can offer is guidance and encouragement, and I’m enthusiastic about helping people feel confident and capable.

In my free time, I love spending time with family, gardening, being active, cooking and baking, photography, and playing board games.

I am a Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) and Corrective Exercise Specialist (CES) through the National Academy of Sport Medicine (NASM).
