This month we’re starting a Coach showcase! We will be going on each month naming each one of our awesome coaches who go that extra mile!  Benjamin is nothing short of a rockstar.  His dedication, perseverance, and the love his fellow coworkers have for him are simply admirable. Benjamin is the definition of a hard worker (I have no idea how he runs on literally no sleep), extremely dedicated, deadly with an axe (and knives), a phenomenal Axe Master, and it is for these and a million other reasons that we are excited to announce Ben is our very first recipient of the Axe Coach Award of Axellence for December goes to Benjamin Edgington of Denver!

If you could throw axes with any one person in history who would it be and why?

Three way tie between Edward Teach, Sir Ernest Shackleton, and Dos Equis mascot “The Most Interesting Man in the World”, I think the conversation would be amazing but I also feel like they’ve got moves.

What do you do when you’re not axe throwing?

When it’s warmer i enjoy trail running, and I adore being on my road bike. I also Netflix pretty hard.

What’s a cool fact about you?

I’ve competed in the Black Hills 100M endurance race

Do you have any hidden talents?

I wouldn’t say that i hide very many of them

If you were marooned on a desert island what 3 items would you bring?

Realistically an 18 inch double bit axe, a cast iron pot and a canvas tarp. Less realistically, a top shelf margarita, a pillow, and a novelization of televisions The Office
