Ben Lorenzen, CCM

Creative Director & Director of Aquatics & Fitness
Champions Run
Omaha, NE

I have been happily married to my wife Allison for two years we have a two year old son named Leo! I grew up working in aquatics and clubs since I was 15 years old. I went to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and Majored in Communication and Video Production. I worked as the Web Director for a pharmacy Chain in Omaha Nebraska for 3 years, when I was approached for the Champions Run position. I have been at Champions Run for 7 years now and love every minute of it, because every day is different!

I did my first public speaking engagement in 2017 at the CMAA World Conference in Orlando and BOOM it took off from there. I have now been speaking for CMAA and Club Chapters for the last 4 years and I love every second of it!
