About this pro

The students that work with me understand that I am not only their trainer, but their mentor as well. I work with my players on and off the court. They have access to my Weekly Mindset Zoom calls and learn how to have more confidence and set goals weekly. I focus on holding each player accountable on and off the court for them to see a transformation, because I Care about my players! 
-I send each player assignments with drills and videos to do at home so they can work on their game and become better on their own as well. At the end of the day, I am their teacher, the hard work and results need to come from the player and I am here to teach each kid that! 

-I am an I'mpossible skills trainer certified. I have been a full time trainer for over 5 years now. I have worked with NBA players and pros from around the world.
-I am located around the Aventura, FL area.
No matter what your current age or skill level is, I focus and teach each player skills, drills and techniques such as used for the pros. Getting into the little details, using similar drills and skills NBA players have worked on, exposing your weaknesses and turning them into strengths!

    If you're serious about improving your basketball skills, then hiring Ben is a no brainer. From the very first training session, you will be challenged beyond your limits and it never gets any easier. As your skills develop, the drills and challenges get harder and harder so you're always getting better. The best part is that every aspect of the training is fun and fulfilling. You will get an incredible workout every class and you'll notice improvements in your game right away. Believe me, if I could train with Ben 4 hours a day everyday, I would. You will not be disappointed with his program.

    Ben is amazing! He worked with my 3 boys and they never wanted the lessons to end! He taught skills, the right way to dribble and shoot and made it fun that each day they asked for another lesson! Highly recommend!

  • Jake

    Ben's an awesome coach. He helped me with so many things that I don't know where should I start! Communication was great, training is enjoyable and straight to it - no wasting time, and I can say with full confidence that he knows what he's doing.

    My son Gabriel loves going to basket class with coach Ben!

How did you get started teaching?

What types of students have you worked with?

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

One of my young players has done a 28 day ball handling challenge I gave him, and in only 14 days he has seen tremendous results. What I loved the most from this is that he realized that being consistent for 2 weeks straight can get him anywhere he wants in life and not only basketball.

Look for a teacher that you will have fun to train with, and will hold you accountable on and off the court to see a transformation.
