Ben D’Aguilar attended McMaster University in Hamilton and has spent time in Virginia at Fork Union Military Academy for their football program. Attending the NFL Super Regional combine in 2013, D’Aguilar spent time with the New York Jets at training camp before coming back to Canada to play for the Calgary Stampeders Football Club. D’Aguilar has been playing for the Calgary Stampeders since 2013.
After suffering a potential career-ending injury in 2014, D’Aguilar underwent total reconstructive surgery on his ACL and meniscus, leading to D’Aguilar’s exploration into unconventional fitness training. Through natural movement, D’Aguilar rehabilitated his knee using a personalized program he’d created for himself and returned to playing three months sooner than was anticipated.
Since then, D’Aguilar has been exploring different planes of movement and training, incorporating everything from martial arts to dance in his fitness regime. He has since been featured in the Calgary Herald and Stack Magazine for his innovative training methods.
Ben: “The more an athlete has seen (movement experience) the better equipped they are to adapt, and thrive in any condition athletic competition may present.”
