Benji Bush Member Of The Quarter


The Adonis that is Benji Bush has substantially more to him than his great looks & Greek God’s physique.

Benji started out his sporting life in rural New Zealand on the North Island near the Bay of Plenty in a small town called Whakatane. Schooled in a tiny prep school called Opotiki primary school & then onto Whakatane High thereafter. He represented his schools & local region in triathlon, multisport, surf-life saving, rugby union & league, soccer, volley ball, swimming & tennis. Benji went onto nationals in soccer, rugby & surf-life saving.

Having won sportsman of the year in his home region of Bay of Plenty aged just 17 Benji signed on for the New Zealand Defence Forces, he joined the Royal New Zealand Navy & served for 6 long years. While in the RNZN Benji represented the force in rugby union, rugby league, soccer & volley ball.

Aged just 23 Benji resigned his commission & emigrated to Australia to work as a FIFO professional where his appetite for the gym grew & his dedication to physique sculpting & body building developed even further. All a far cry from his original gym workouts that saw him first enter a steel-pit at the tender age of just 14, though he did take an interest in Body Building at just 16 years old soon afterwards.

Benji’s Body Building titles are far too numerous to list here, they would run an entire chapter of pages, suffice to say he has competed & conquered all before him winning a total of fourteen 1st & 2nd placed podium finishes in his short & burgeoning Body Building career. What Benji has achieved in his natural body building career is remarkable & he is still just at the beginning of his title collection.

He has been victorious in the World Amateur Natural Titles (WANT), International Body Building Association (INBA) & I Compete Naturally (ICN) since he started out.

Benji trusts his preparation to Healthy Life Fitness Centre based coach James Elliott under his Elliott Performance Team. Benji is a super friendly, easy going Kiwi who can be seen on our gym floor daily with his motivational coach the relaxed & yet very technical Canadian James Elliott. Benji is constantly being built, honed & sculpted to perfection here in the club & always happy to give anyone the benefit of his wisdom.

Congratulations Benji Bush you put most of us to shame & that is just with your nutritional plan, let alone your workout regime or your physique as the ultimate finished article.
