We wanted to give you the opportunity to get to know this Ninja Warrior and what makes him tick. So we ask him...
Who is Ben Polson...
I am a 6/4 blonde/ginger haired ninja. My passions include music production where I have DJ'd all across Australia, I'm also a video editor and producer where I work with small businesses to create unique content. I can be found swinging around the ninja warrior gym, rock climbing or hanging with my partner in crime, Olivia Vivian.
What is your fav workout?
I am a huge fan of calisthenics or Hight Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)
What do you love most about life?
Learning something new, jack of all trades, master of none
What is your favourite product of White Wolf Nutrition & Why
It will always be White Wolf Vanilla Vegan Protein, it is extremely delicious and helps me make more ethical choices when it comes to where my protein comes from.
Do you have a not negotiable ritual that you do every day?
Every single morning for the past year I have consumed one scoop of White Wolf Vanilla Vegan Protein mixed with blueberries, avocado, peanut butter and banana.
Have you had to give up something big in your life to achieve your goals? If so what and how has it panned out?
Life is full of these decisions, I would love to be amazing at piano, do gymnastics, eat more chocolate, spend more time with friends and family but I choose to spend more time training my body and mind to be the best at Ninja Warrior in Australia because that is my ultimate goal.
What inspires you to live healthy?
I dont need to be inspired to live healthy, for me its the obvious choice. We have one life and I dont plan on wasting it on the couch watching other people accomplish amazing things, I want to test my physical and mental limits.
Do you have a mantra or quote that you live by?
If I were to it would revolve around gratitude and self-awareness, they are the keys to happiness.
Who keeps you accountable?
I have mainly relied on myself, its important to have strong self-accountability. Without a solid foundation it doesn't matter what the house it made out of, it can always fall down at any point.
If you had one superpower what would it be?
Time travel, only to watch, never to alter.
Why do you do what you do?
Because it makes me happy, it's certainly not for the money haha
What are your five foolproof ways to feel good?
1: Gratitude check, think of how lucky I am to be alive and have my health and my family's health.
3: Play music
4: Hang with friends
5: Waking up next to my partner (oops this should have been No.1 haha)
