Combining Biomechanics and Fitness with Mechanical Engineer Benjamin Lee

Today we’re welcoming by Benjamin Lee. He is a mechanical engineer by trade, and he merged his knowledge of biomechanics with his love for fitness at Fortius Labs. At Fortius Labs they provide injury prevention software that makes personalized health & fitness fast, easy, and scientific.

Obviously, one of my goals, because we have access to all this great data, is to really try and add to the bricks of the wall of science…to ultimately help trainers and therapists do a better job with their clients.” – Benjamin Lee
