"One of the unique things about Benjamin Sage is Benjamin‘s age. At 51 I could pass for much younger. Why? It’s a balance between the spiritual, the emotional, and the physical element of who I am. With a Masters degree in spiritual counseling I understand the importance of digging deep and continuing to ask the big question of “Why.” This unravels a person’s outer core until there is nothing left but their true inner self.
This became more than theory when at the age of 45, I lost my job and my family in a divorce. Starting completely over in life including being homeless and living in my mini-van for almost a year, I spent cold nights at a 24 hour gym and days looking for a good job while working at a health store. I eventually began to develop both physically, emotionally and spiritually with a new appreciation for this important balance.
I found a common theme of pain bringing about new growth. This takes place on every level whether it’s in the gym or going through painful emotional hardships.
I believes God brought me through this transformative and difficult year to become who I am today. Instead of wearing the emotional scars on my face, I have learned to turn stress into opportunities. I am now the executive director of a charity as well as a fitness model and personal trainer who emphasizes developing physically from deep within the spirit until the transformation shows through the physical body.
