GLSA Partners with BeWell Fitness

GLSA, its Staff and Board of Directors are extremely pleased to announce the partnership between the Greater Libertyville Soccer Association and BeWell Fitness. As an organization, we are constantly seeking to improve and evolve, whether it be our facilities or our coaching. This partnership seeks to improve and support the development of our players. BeWell Fitness will support our coaching staff as a resource, help educate parents and equip the athletes with tools for success. 'We are very excited to partner with BeWell and  bring Ben on board with the staff,' said Executive Director, Michael Zovistoski, 'his expertise in the areas of fitness and wellness will be a huge boost to our coaches, players and families. We are all looking forward to having become part of the GLSA family.'

Ben Wellenbach founded BeWell Fitness in 2007. Originally from the Boston area, Ben's first mentor and strength coach was Michael Boyle. For 2 seasons, Mike taught him the fundamentals and methodology through his professional, Olympic, and collegiate athletes. He then helped Michael and his team introduce a new standard in certifying future coaches called the Certified Functional Strength Coach (CFSC). This new standard raises the expectation of future coaches in our industry. He trained under Todd Champlin, physical therapist for the Indianapolis Ice (Central Hockey League), and studied under Gray Cook and Lee Burton, Co- Founders of the F.M.S. (Functional Movement Systems), learning to better screen people for deficiencies of movement.

Currently, Ben and his team are mentored and coached by Will Chung and his Triple Chain Theory of ChungFu. This training is the future of strength and conditioning bridging the gap from where you are to where you want to be. They are the strength coach for the Libertyville High School football, boys soccer and hockey teams and previously worked with the track, baseball and basketball teams. They also help to advise and support the youth sports organizations and some of the local fire departments.
