Certifications: CrossFit Level 1 & 2, USA Weightlifting Sports Performance Certified Coach, CrossFit Gymnastics, CrossFit Mobility, M.S. in Biology

 

Texan Fitness Co-Owner and Coach Ben Stevens has always been competitive, playing sports growing up, but when he got to college, he found the competitive environment of his dreams when he was introduced to CrossFit. He jumped in quickly, having developed the first program at Tarleton State University.

That was the start of a journey that led Ben and his wife, Randi, to earn their certifications and open their own gym, CrossFit Impressions, in August of 2013. Since then, Ben has competed in a number of CrossFit competitions over the past five years, including the Fittest Games, the OCT in California, Oktoberfest Obliteration in Houston, the South Central Classic in Oklahoma and the Pensacola Beach Brawl in Florida, among others.

CrossFit introduced Ben to Olympic weightlifting, which opened up a new world to him, not just in competing but in teaching. He has worked with and coached Olympic athletes at the national and local levels.

Ben enjoys teaching and coaching because he knows the exhilaration of reaching fitness milestones, and he wants to see them experience the same highs.

I was born and raised in Waco, TX. My favorite hobbies are working out, drinking coffee, hunting, reading, food blogging, concerts, yoga, traveling and being a superhero to my 2 young men. I’ve been involved with sports since the age of 6. During high school, I lettered in football and track along with competing in basketball, soccer, baseball and powerlifting. In 2011, my uncle passed away at the age of 35 due to being unhealthy and that was when I decided to dedicate my life to health and fitness. I began to run at local tracks and trails in every outdoor condition Texas weather has to offer seeking to avenge his death through being healthy. In 2014, I found CrossFit and I instantly developed the passion, will, determination and drive to not only better myself but to better people of all walks of life around me. Since receiving my L1 in 2016, I’ve help change, transform and inspire many lives
