Co-Founder and Coach, 4:13 FITNESS

Ben Richards had no intention of becoming a coach. That was his wife, Kristi’s, job. He had an interest in animation and liked to help out as a volunteer with 4:13 FITNESS classes. His computer programming experience made him a natural for managing the 4:13 FITNESS accounts, billing and all things technical. Plus, he had a day job as an Escalation Manager at Dell.

But one day, when Kristi was too sick to hold class, Ben stepped in. The boxers gave him rave reviews. Before he could get a right hook in, he was on his way to training camp in Indianapolis.

Even though he can now add “Coach” to his resume, Ben’s number one role is still that of Dad to four kids: Landry, Bella, Read and Harrison, and of course, husband to his wife of 18 years, Coach Kristi.
