Meet Ben Wisler, PGA, NCCPT Personal Trainer, RRCA Certified Running Coach, NCCPT Senior Fitness Specialist

Ben’s passion for fitness and golf brought him to Seymour in 2011. He and his wife, Amanda, run Fitness 1440 Seymour as a family-focused club with their 5 kids ranging in age from 15 to 9 months. Ben has a BA in Marketing and Advertising from Ferris State University where he also earned his Class A through the PGA. His passion for golf translates well into the fitness industry, “The thing I like most about golf is that I can teach people not only another sport, but also provide them with a tool for a lifetime of wellness.”

Ben works with clients of all ages interested in running coaching and golfing to help them reach their goals whether it’s to finish a first 5k, run a marathon, break 100 or break par. Ben coaches the club’s PGA Jr League golf teams (ages 16 and under) out of Shadowood Golf course and also coached Immanuel Lutheran School’s Cross Country team.
