The editor of testosteronejunkie.com playing rugby

The editor is Ben Bunting.

Ben is currently 34 years old and has been involved in fitness since the age of 6 when he started playing for Chesterfield Rugby Union Football Club (now the Chesterfield Panthers).

Rugby took him on playing tours as far flung as Hong Kong and Australia which gave Ben a great insight in to team work, honesty, respect, pride and camaraderie.

While at school (Mount St. Mary’s College) Ben was an active 1stXV rugby player, participated in the cricket teams, was a member of the athletics team and also involved himself in the Combined Cadet Force.

One comment that stuck forever within Ben’s mind came from the 1stXV coach who stated that fitness will win games: Fitness can surpass talent and ability.

He embarked on gaining qualifications in physical studies and entered higher education at Leeds Metropolitan University (now Leeds Beckett University) to graduate with a Bachelors degree in 2005.Condor Pista fixed gear bike in paris veloscenic

He has been a keen gym goer since his early twenties and took an interest in training techniques and how to build long term muscle growth. This then spawned a further interest in supplements and their effectiveness.

Ben has recently joined the British Army Reserve to further develop his fitness and experience adventure training with a view to become a PTI.

Recently Ben rode the Veloscenic route which involves a 450km bicycle ride from Paris to Mont St-Michel. He completed it on a brake-less fixed gear bicycle.

Ben’s aim of this site is to offer a free resource whereby there are reviews of nutrients and products to expose the benefits by studying scientific research trials utilizing his proven abilities to assimilate information.
