Strength & Conditioning Coach
A life-long mountain biker, Ben Plenge fell in love with riding on dirt in the ’90s and hasn’t slowed down ever since.
He found a love for fitness during his career in the British Army where he served tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and retired as a Captain. On leaving the army, Ben qualified as a professional coach and setup The Strength Factory to help riders of all levels smash their goals.
Ben has worked with World Cup pro’s like Charlie Hatton (Trek & Atherton Bikes) and Mike Jones (MS Mondraker), freeride star Veronique Sandler and Enduro World Series racers Chris Hutchens (Wideopen Nukeproof) and Fergus Ryan (Santa Cruz) as well as hundreds of amateur racers and everyday trail riders like you. When you sign up to The Strength Factory, you’re in safe hands.
No, you don’t. You can train at home, in the park or in a gym, it is up to you.
Yes, absolutely. The programme is progressive and at every stage you are coached through the exercises with HD videos. Just take your time and pay attention to your technique and you will pick it up in no time.
Yes, it is!
All levels of rider can use the programme. We have a wide range of riders and racers, but mostly it’s people who just want to enjoy their weekly rides more.
We suggest that the minimum time to feel the benefits of the programme are 3 weeks followed by a few days off to rest before your big day.
You don’t need any specialist equipment or access to a gym. Each of our programmes recommend some low-cost items that will make your training more effective, but none are essential.
We have designed the programmes specifically to be accessible to people training at home.
This is totally down to you and your doctor or physio to decide. We never suggest that you train through pain, however if you have a small niggle, you can often train around it, making good progress in other areas whilst doing your rehab.
The amount of time you train is up to you but we suggest that the minimum commitment is 2 x 45 min sessions per week for good, consistent progress.
Yes, under the supervision of an adult. We have a number of under 18’s on the programmes across the UK and beyond.
Absolutely not – if you can do your chosen sport, you can train. It’s even more important for older to stay strong as you get older.
Absolutely. Just build steadily and listen to your body. Getting stronger and possibly losing some weight as you train will have massive benefits when taking part in your sport.
No, this is a one-time purchase.
If our programme doesn’t work for you for whatever reason, we’ll give you a full refund, no questions asked.
