Dr. Ben Lerner is America's Maximized-Living Mentor, and author of the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Christian Booksellers Association bestselling book Body by God: The Owner’s Manual for Maximized Living and the New York Times, USA Today, and Wall-Street Journal Best-seller One Minute Wellness. His breakthrough strategies for total health and well-being are the foundation to his thriving local practice in Celebration and the many clinics he owns and consults for around the world.
An academic all-American wrestler in college, he has served as physician for the US wrestling teams in six World Team competitions and two Olympiads. At seminars, conferences, and media appearances throughout North America, he shows people how to apply the four laws of Olympic success to achieve optimal health, outrageous happiness, and prosperity. Dr. Ben lives in Celebration, Florida with his wife, Dr. Sheri Lerner. He is the proud father of Skylar, Nicole, and Cael.
Dr. Ben's passion for Maximized Living is rooted in personal tragedy: he watched his father die at the age of 52, and his mother suffer a stroke shortly thereafter. In the midst of these traumatic events, he realized that his parents’ poor health was not the result of a single problem—instead they needed to eat better, exercise more, be less stressed, and manage their time better.
It was this quest for a holistic approach to sustainable health—maximized living—that propelled Ben Lerner, first to major in nutrition and psychology at the University of Albany in New York, and then go into Chiropractic at Life University in Marietta, GA. In Chiropractic he discovered a proven pathway to build health instead of merely treating disease.
Seeing hundreds of thousands of patients from all over the world over the last 15 years, he’s witnessed firsthand the frustration of his patients as they tried their hardest and yet failed to make the lifestyle changes they so desperately desired. His compassion for his patients propelled him to develop the attainable, step-by-step methods that are found in his ground-breaking books and the cutting edge care found in his centers.
His Center in Celebration, a prototype for Centers For Maximized Living world-wide, specializes in spinal reconstruction and rehabilitation, scoliosis correction, and nutritional testing and treatment for both children and adults. The particular focus is on serious cases that have not found help from traditional medicine and ordinary Chiropractic care.
