Name: Ben Volk

Hometown:Houston, TX

Other than OTF:
I am a lifetime athlete playing all kinds of sports growing up and even played a little college football. After ending my college sport career, I turned my focus to academics and received a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Texas A&M University. During college I also received my CPT from NSCA and began personal training. After graduating college, I moved to Florida working as a Product Development Engineer. I have been with Stryker for 4 and half years developing surgical instrumentation and systems for robotic assisted orthopedic surgery for hip and knee replacements.

Although a lifetime athlete, being healthy has not always been easy for me. As a football player, I played offensive line at over 275 pounds. I made the decision to change the way I ate and exercised and have managed to lose almost 100 pounds total. Since then, it has been my goal to help other do the same thing.

How I will motivate you:
If you come to my class you can expect the following:
- I will push beyond what you think you are capable of.
- As a runner or jogger, you will NOT walk at your base pace.
- As a power walker, you will NOT hold onto the hand rails on the treadmill.
- In the weight room you will grab heavier weights or I'll grab them for you.
- There will be hard rock music (along with other "mainstream" music).
- You will get better each and every class.
- I will not accept excuses (unless you're injured).
- If you truly want it, I'll get you to 12 mph.

When I'm not getting in the ORANGE:
I don't exactly have much free time but when I'm not working or working out, I spend as much time as possible with my lovely wife. I love to cook and try different ethnic spices. I'm a big movie fan, especially superhero, sci-fi, Disney, or action.

I have been involved with a variety of sports teams over the years competing in basketball, volleyball, and track throughout my high school years before going on to play basketball for Loyola University from 2008-2012.
 
How I will motivate you: 
As a coach I will encourage you to challenge self-imposed limits and constantly set new goals for yourself. I expect you to come to class ready to work but also enjoy the chance to detach from hectic life in a positive and upbeat environment. My playlists include a little bit of everything from today's hits to rock to throwback to hip-hop, but whatever it is I assure you that it will be high energy and upbeat! Most importantly, I will hold you accountable for giving your all every time you are in my class to ensure that you never leave a workout feeling like you could have given a little bit more!
 
When I'm not getting into the ORANGE:  If I am spending time with family and friends, I am happy doing anything and everything! Some of my favorite activities include going to sporting events and being active outdoors.
