“Home Town” star Ben and Erin Napier have transformed themselves into television stars by sprucing up old properties. But Ben is also striving to spruce up himself.

While he is well-equipped with a hammer in hand, Ben Napier is striving for a healthier lifestyle. Inspired by his young and growing family, the “Home Town” star is watching his diet and exercising more. With young children in the home, big Ben needs all the energy he can muster to keep up. Now, he is on a mission to improve his energy levels through proper nutrition, a workout plan, and also healthy choices. His loving wife, Erin Napier, is always there by his side to offer encouragement. The 38-year-old woodworker and his wife have two young daughters. The oldest, Helen, is 4-years-old and their youngest, Mae, is just 7 months old. You can see he has plenty of motivation to stay in shape with two youngsters and an active wife in his home.

In a recent clip promoting the next upcoming “Home Town” episode, Ben talks about his fitness journey. He says he is surrounded by people encouraging and the experience has been a positive one so far. A pretty good-sized fella, Ben is naturally strong and has to be with his job on the show. He admits his physical fitness could certainly use and upgrade.

“Who knows? Maybe I’ll enter a body-building competition,” he says. “Probably not going to do that.”

He goes on to tell viewers why he’s taking his fitness seriously.

“I’ve always worked out. I can benchpress more than a lot of people, but I can’t do a pull-up,” he says. “I’ve got two daughters, one on the way, I am getting older I’m trying to take a little bit better care of myself.”

Ben has an ally in his wife’s older brother, Clarke, a physical therapist.

“I need to start working out a little more intentionally. And so I’m using pull-ups as like a benchmark,” he says. “This is my new lifestyle. This is every day.”

‘Home Town’ Makes the Napier Family Household Names

The “Home Town” clip shows footage of Ben lifting weights and running for exercise.

An adorable couple that works very well together, Ben and Erin are the battery that makes “Home Town” go. The HGTV series is one of the most popular renovations shows on television. Ben handles the construction side of their projects and Erin takes care of the decorating and small details. The Napiers also have an excellent sense of humor as Ben demonstrates later in the clip.

This season of “Home Town” the Napiers are doing a project for themselves. Ben discusses the project that was featured in a previous episode.

“It’s sort of a hideaway for us, a place out near family land where we can go and let the girls run on the weekends,” he says.

The next new episode of “Home Town” will premiere tonight (Sunday) on HGTV.
