Ben Eitelberg vegan plant-based coach athlete

As a Triathlon NZ Level 3 accredited coach, he has been operating his endurance sports coaching business, Fitness Locker, for over 8 years.

Ben has had unique opportunities to shadow world-renowned individual and team coaches, work with a vast range of ability & experienced athletes in achieving their own goals, and delivering training camps, workshops and clinics throughout New Zealand and Australia. Ben has a wealth of experience & knowledge to share with his athletes.

Whilst Ben has always placed an emphasis on ‘real food’ nutrition, his personal journey to a completely wholefood plant-based approach has been an extremely favourable one that he continues to share. A dedicated Instagram account, Fitness Locker Cuisine, was established to provide better insight into making smarter choices for sport performance & recovery.

A number of his own athletes have since also undertaken this positive shift and more interested fitness enthusiasts have had the opportunity to engage with Ben through his popular plant-based nutrition for sport workshops that continue to be delivered around New Zealand and Australia.
