My name is Ben Hoffman and I am a professional triathlete. Originally from Grand Junction, Colorado, I was first exposed to the sport at the University of Montana in Missoula and quickly rose to the top of the ranks at the collegiate level. Since then I have moved on to train in Boulder, Colorado, and Tucson, Arizona, two of the fitness meccas of the U.S. Since turning professional in 2007, I have earned Ironman, Half-Ironman, and National Champion victories. Follow me on my journey to the top of long-distance triathlon.
