His father and uncle were top class athletes and sports enthusiasts during their younger years.
The tales of their feats of power and strength served as inspiration to young Pakulski.
Ben grew up as a great athlete who excelled in baseball, hockey and football. Ben’s father saw the potential of his son, particularly his physique.
He decided to sign him up for one year at one of the best training gym available.
During that time, under the guidance of Scott Abel, a nutritionist and Tommy Hall, a bodybuilder, Ben Pakulski developed into a great athlete.
Ben pursued an undergraduate course in kinesiology and he did not engage in any events until he graduated.
After college, there was nothing to stop Ben Pakulski from pursuing his dream.
He was able to win during his first competition that greatly impressed the judges due to his stunning physique that he developed in just four years.
