BTN was created in 2009 by Ben Coomber after his fight from obesity and ill health, a journey which saw him lose 5.5 stone of body fat, build 3 stone of lean muscle, and combat his IBS, ADHD, Asthma and Eczema. Ben’s journey inspired him to change career paths and teach as many people as humanly possible about the power of nutrition as it had changed his life immeasurably. Initially BTN was an online coaching company providing 1-2-1 bespoke nutrition packages for clients. As BTN looked to master body and mind transformation this coaching approach evolved into the Fat Loss for Life 90 day coaching system that all our Practical Academy students now get as part of our online courses, a system Ben still coaches today.
While delivering online coaching in 2013, BTN developed it’s education system, which is now the sole focus of BTN, The BTN Academy. This means we’ve many years coaching before we even became an education focused company, and all the products, systems and resources we previously developed for coaching clients are now part of our education system, The BTN Academy, for free. The BTN Academy now teaches people online from all over the world being led by Ben Coomber and Tom Bainbridge (our Head of Education), alongside PhD lecturers, dieticians, nutritionists, GB athletes and other coaches that work daily in the trenches with real people. In this process we have worked with external awarding bodies like the AfN and REPS to ensure our courses are evidence based, all while being taught in our practical, ethical and engaging style of teaching.
