Ben Medina grew up Inland Empire here in Southern California. He was always an active athlete that enjoyed competitive swimming and tennis in college. But anxious to start working and make my way to the coast, those activities he enjoyed so much fell to the wayside, never truly reaching his potential as an athlete.
After moving to beautiful San Clemente in 2006 and spearheading his own successful technology company and helped co-found a winery over the years, He rediscovered a passion for fitness when joining local gym as a client. Being surrounded by such a supportive environment, it re-ignited a passion for fitness and healthy living. After a year back in the gym Ben was asked if he was interested in being a trainer. After a few months of hesitation, he said yes and has been going full throttle every since.
Ben has been working as a fitness instructor for 4 years while taking in inspiration from fellow fitness enthusiast and clients.” My time as a trainer has helped me reach that untapped athletic potential which I feel could have only been found with the support and encouragement of my FitFam”. Ben has become an accomplished Spartan racer often placing in the top 20 among hundreds to thousands of competitors. He is also a proud brand ambassador to the popular international fitness appeal company 2XU, so you may spot him on the occasional advertisement.
Ben looks forward to continue being educated and inspired by fellow staff and amazing clients at Konversion Fit. You will find him on the gym floor dishing out his legendry sass, good tunes & wicked sense of humor.
“My goal is to ignite in you my same passion for fitness & healthy living so that you too can reach new potential, and have the best time doing it! - Ben Medina
