Benjamin David, teenage ex-convict, recalls his incredible true story in, Our Hero Within, offering us a sobering glimpse of what it was like to go from being raised in a broken home and rebuilding his life after being released from prison to a successful fitness trainer and mentor to troubled teens.

Part coming of age memoir, part practical advice manual for discovering your true self, Benjamin begins Our Hero Within by reminding us that we don't have to be products of our environment or our own self-sabotage any longer. 

By using what he learned in prison during a time he calls his "two-year spiritual odyssey" and combining that with his personal experiences he gives us his personal blueprint and teaches us the exact same processes that helped him. 

Regardless of your current circumstances, we all deserve to have purpose and passion in life and this book will help you get there no matter where you come from or who you are.

"Most people wander around through life as if they're some sort of unexplainable miracle or accident. But the truth is that you don't have to be. We're all here with a purpose you just have to have faith until you figure out what that purpose is." - Benjamin David


"Ben, I wanted to reach out because I just finished reading your book, "Our Hero Within" on Wattpad. I was really impacted by it- I could barely put it down! Your story left me slack-jawed. Your experiences seem like they could be made into a thriller movie! I did not expect it to also contain any of the practical knowledge you included on neuroplasticity, brain chemistry, nutrition and fitness. The way you put it all together alongside your personal narrative and martial arts philosophy was brilliant and moving. Thank you so much for sharing your story!" - David Gann.
