Interview with Benjamin Paul Goodall (@ben_goodie)

74

Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path? 

I was unhappy with my body and began learning about nutrition and training. Soon after I gained my Level 3 in Personal Training and Nutrition I had a hunger for learning more about physiology.

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this? 

Modelling “The Range” department stores gym clothing for all of their stores across the UK. Placing 3rd in the UK Ultimate Physiques Regional Competition and receiving an invite to the British Finals in London which I placed 6th in. I was also scouted and brought on board with BPI Sports in the UK representing their brand and have since transitioned to 10X Athletic.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”? 

Believe to Achieve. There’s no right or wrong. Focus on the outcome you want to achieve, gain an understanding of how to be successful on your journey, and hang in there. Naturally you will adapt and grow which means your journey will adapt but as long as it’s aligned with your original goal. Keep driving on. 

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story? 

I’ve had a lot of support from Justin Tunbridge my athlete manager who brought me on board originally to support the BPI Sports brand in the UK and now 10X Athletic. Our relationship is really synergistic and he’s always supported throughout my journey.

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world? 

I’m approached regularly particularly on social media asking for advice on nutrition and training. I always share my knowledge to uplift others who started where I began.

Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life? 

You can’t claim the ladder of success with your hands in your pocket. I’ve always followed this quote. You can’t expect things to land on your lap. You have to pursue them, commit to them, and put your energy into them.
