TOPLV was founded in 2021, the vision had started back in 2016 when the owner operator Benny decided to leave the British Army and pursue his passion helping others improve their health, fitness, and performance
Upon joining the British Army at 16 years old, after passing basic training Benny volunteered to serve with the elite Airborne Forces, firstly passing the All-Arms Pre-Parachute Selection and earning the highly coveted maroon beret and then his British Jump wings by successfully completing 12 parachute descents from a C-17 aircraft.
Once he joined his unit Benny was highly trained and deployed on operational tours, living, and operating in jungles, mountains, and deserts. Mastering how to keep his body, mind, and equipment in the best condition ready to operate at the highest levels required effectively.
Benny always wanted to take the unique skills he had learned during his 12-year military career, coupled with his passion for fitness and helping others, and create something that can push everyone to be the best version of themselves the same way the Army had done this for him. Therefore, TOPLV was created, a brand tailored to helping individuals be the best versions of themselves.
