ABOUT BEN HULME – THE BOOT CAMPERFrom broken neck to health and fitness success
I didn’t know it at the time but my health and fitness journey started when I nearly died in a car accident where the driver of a Lamborghini lost control and hit a tree (I was the passenger).
I broke and dislocated my neck and I had an operation to fuse c3/c4 in my neck with a metal plate and pins. I was very close to being paralysed or actually losing my life.
During my 2 year recovery I put on a lot of weight and became very depressed. I was not in a good place. I was on anti-depressants, it was dark.
One day I saw myself on the TV and I didn’t recognise myself. That’s when I knew something had to be done. I tried lots of different fad diets, but couldn’t find anything that actually worked long term.
The one day to my surprise my fiancée left me and I became a full time single Dad to my two daughters. With so much going on I had a nervous break down which was the catalyst that changed my life. I decided to focus on my health and fitness to become the best version of my self, for them!Read more about ben's story
