LATVIA MEN's NATIONAL HOCKEY COACH 2014 WINTER OLYMPICS           POLISH NATIONAL HOCKEY TEAM HEAD COACH 2017

SAULT GREYHOUND HEAD COACH - MEMORIAL CUP CHAMPIONS

I have coached professionally for over 25 years and even had the unique opportunity to coach Latvia at the Sochi Olympics in 2014.  Knowing firsthand the importance of physical fitness for elite athletes and how important it is in today's game.  When my son Jordan was drafted professionally we knew we had to find someone that we could trust to help him reach his full potential.  Ben Cinelli was that man who helped Jordan achieve success and in 2012 and 2014 our son, was a proud member of the Stanley cup Champions, Los Angeles Kings.

Thank you Ben, proud dad, TED NOLAN.

JORDAN NOLAN

LOS ANGELES KINGS           TWO TIME STANLEY CUP CHAMPION

BUFFALO  SABRES        ST. LOUIS BLUES

During my OHL career I trained in a group setting, but once I transitioned to the professional level of hockey I decided that one-on-one training would be the best way for me to become stronger, faster and an overall better athlete.  I instantly knew that choosing Ben to train with was  right for me upon our first meeting.  Every workout was effective and challenging - he knew exactly what type of exercises were beneficial for my body type, level of fitness and training goals.  His attention to detail in our workout program was extremely helpful and something that I appreciated most.  Besides preparing me physically for the game, Ben also significantly contributed to preparing me mentally for the game.  Ben's knowledge of training had a substantial impact on my success as a professional athlete both on and off the ice.  For the past six seasons in the NHL I have finished near the top of my team for physical testing during training camp.  Being physically  fit is critical to being a successful professional hockey player and I know that Ben has been one of the greatest contributions to me success.

"They don't care how much you know, until they know how much you care."

Caring is how I would describe Ben Cinelli.  I have often used his expertise for training and to rehab some of my own nagging injuries.  I have referred many of my goalie clients to Ben for dry land training because of his professional approach to training and positional specific recovery techniques.   TERRY BARBEAU

SAMANTHA HUNT

VARSITY WOMEN'S BASKETBALL ALUMNI, McMASTER UNIVERSITY.

Ben was more than just a fitness trainer; he was my mentor, nutritional counselor and life coach.  He gave me the courage to dig deep in order to find what it takes physically and mentally to achieve my goals and pushed me to meet them.  Throughout my six years at YOUnique, I became the strongest, fastest and most determined version of myself.  And more importantly, I've gained the skills, knowledge and values about health that I've been able to carry with me, long after hanging up my jersey.  I owe so much to Ben and he will always be a lifelong friend.  SAMANTHA HUNT.

BHSc '15, MSc '17 (Candidate)

WESTERN UNIVERSITY VARSITY WOMEN's SOCCER TEAM '11-15'  (Captain '13 -'15)              CIS ACADEMIC ALL-CANADIAN '15'

Training with Ben is unlike any other workout regiment available.  He creates unique exercise plans for each individual client based on his or her goals - whether it's to make the NHL or to begin a more active lifestyle.  Having the opportunity to train with Ben means having the privilege of building a high-quality foundation for your continued athletic development.  My time with Ben was instrumental in my career as a varsity athlete.  His dedication to my success was evident in my first workout and continued throughout our five years together. 

If I could do it all over again, the only thing I would change is beginning sooner.  TIANNA DELUZIO.

RACHELLE GRAHAM

SAULT MAJOR HOCKEY ASSOCIATION AA HOCKEY GOALTENDER - ROOT RIVER RANGERS LEAGUE CHAMPIONS

YALE UNIVERSITY WOMEN'S HOCKEY PROGRAM GOALTENDER

At YOUnique Fitness, I trained with workouts that were tailored for my  position as a hockey goalie and for my aspirations.  During my time there, however, Ben was more than a trainer.  He acted as a mentor who also taught me the nutritional and mental requirements of becoming a elite athlete.  Thanks to Ben, I went on to play AA Hockey in the Sault Major Hockey Association (Bantam and Midget Level) and played varsity hockey at Yale University for four years.

It has been said that an investment in knowledge pays the best interest.  That is what you get when you train with Ben Cinelli.  His knowledge and experience in the fitness/personal training field is second to none.  Unlike many of today's  larger high-priced fitness trainers/ chains, Ben offers reasonably priced fitness instruction in a non-intimidating environment.  I started training with Ben over 30 years ago, when I was in high school.  I still rely on his training techniques and advice to this day.  I can honestly say that his help has contributed greatly to my fitness longevity.  The fitness level I have achieved, thanks to Ben, has also helped me to over come injuries and recover from major surgeries, including two hip replacements and an esophageal  removal and gastric pull-up.  So, whether you are an athlete looking to up your game: someone looking for challenging ways to maximize your fitness level; or you just want some diet advice; whatever your fitness goal or fitness level is - visit Ben Cinelli at YOUnique Fitness.  You will be glad you did.

Ben puts the "personal" in personal trainer.     FRANK  PERRI.

PEGGY LASH

As a friend and client of Ben for over 11 years, our relationship of athletic training - even though I did not compete in athletic sport - has remained a highly beneficial addition to my life.  Initially I retained Ben as a personal trainer to compliment my own gym routine.  Under his guidance over the years we are constantly re-building on new workout routines, nutrititonal options and meal plans, with importance being placed on blood pressure and heart rate recovery, all within my limitations for maximum results.  I would also add a great anti-aging perk.  The privacy of Ben's sessions give you the freedom to challenge yourself, laugh at your inadequacies and leave with a feeling of accomplishment with lifting even the lightest of weights.  At times I have a spiritual session when 'oh my god & Jesus' enter the premises.  I consider it my privilege to have this opportunity of being trained by a man who is kind and generous with his time and energy and knowledge, and would recommend to you the BENNY-FIT of YOUnique Fitness.  PEGGY LASH.

I spent 4 years over the course of my hockey career training at YOUnique Fitness and it was a very welcoming and challenging style of fitness.  During that time Ben and I tried to focus on hockey specific drills but there were a lot of drills that seem simple and any person can be successful at but are much more challenging than people think.  A simple 3 pound wooden pole was enough to have my upper body screaming after 10 minutes and Ben saying to me "this is only the warmup".  I enjoyed my time at YOUnique and the challenges that Ben came up with are very different and not your everyday weight training gym.

NORTHVILLE, MICHIGAN, U.S.A.

Ben is one of the best in the industry in exercise science and sport performance.  He pushes both the novice gym-goer and the high performance athlete alike to reach and exceed their individual goals.  Ben helped me prepare to compete on an elite level as I prepared for my college career in the NCAA and later before I went to the Washington Capitals (NHL) prospect camp.  Ben not only trains for physical strength, but also helps people become stronger mentally.  This helps people become more mentally fit for all of the challenges life can throw at them, as well as help them to become more successful due to a positive and hardworking mindset.

CHRISTOPHER  HUNT

DALHOUSIE UNIVERSITY VARSITY BASKETBALL

Training with Ben at YOUnique Fitness completely changed how I approached my sport and continues to shape how I approach my life.  I came to Ben a young athlete looking to put on muscle and after 10 years under his tutelage secured a scholarship to play varsity basketball at Dalhousie University.  Now I realize that I came away with so much more than that.  Exercising and recovering with awareness of breath, improving overall health through nutritional competency, overcoming challenges with enthusiasm and determination - these skills I learned at YOUnique not only helped me to become a better athlete, but have carried me through my life beyond basketball.  Ben's ability to teach and empower is truly remarkable.  CHRISTOPHER HUNT.

TYLER BROWN

QUEBEC MAJOR JUNIOR HOCKEY LEAGUE             MARITIME HOCKEY LEAGUE

I trained with Benny for 4 summers and they were the most beneficial summers of my hockey career.  His commitment to his profession made my workouts so enjoyable and absolutely worth it.  He definitely knows how to individualize a workout with so many different and unique exercises that you will never see at any other gym.  Benny is a thoughtful and generous man that I am not only grateful to call my trainer but my very good friend as well.  

My highest recommendations go to Benny Cinelli at YOUnique Fitness.  TYLER BROWN. 

HEIDI & ROB ZAGORDO

HIGH SCHOOL TEACHERS

This year our daughter had the privilege of working with Ben three sessions a week.  Her initial focus was to improve her personal best in track.  Ben sparked a passion in our daughter Gabbe that we had never seen.  She learned about taking responsibility for her nutrition and overall health.  While Gabbe built physical strength and improved her technique, as parents, we saw her self-esteem and intrinsic motivation skyrocket.  By the end of her sessions, Ben was much more than a trainer, he was a person who had earned her respect, trust and friendship.   HEIDI & ROB ZAGORDO 

JIM & KATHLEEN PATTISON

SAULT STE. MARIE, MICHIGAN, USA

What we like about Ben is his holistic approach to training that embodies the mind, body and spirit.  Ben is genuinely concerned about his client's health and well being.  For our son Jack who is a goaltender, Ben has been able to boost his confidence both on and off the ice.  We are VERY happy with our son's training and trust Ben with our son to help develop him into a better person and a better athlete.  JIM & KATHLEEN PATTISON.

JAKE & AMANDA MAKI

YOUnique Fitness is a rare find.  A one-on-one fitness program with each workout made just for you. Our son Logan who plays hockey has seen excellent results with Ben in the areas of fitness and nutrition. 

Very motivating and fun.  JAKE & AMANDA MAKI.

I began training with Ben after watching the great job he did with my son as he prepared for the upcoming hockey seasons.  Ben not only trains you physically but mentally as well, which is equally as important as the physical training.  If you are considering a personal trainer, Ben at YOUnique Fitness is the individual you want to contact to get healthy and back on track!.   JOHN PALMERIO

JIM BELSITO

I highly recommend Ben as a personal fitness trainer.  I have known Ben for over thirty years and I have always benefited from his expert training and nutrition advice.  Through Ben's guidance I was able to kick start my training routine and reach my fitness goals.   JIM BELSITO
