Flight Fitness Launch Event!
Hey you guys! We are so incredibly excited to announce that we will be launching our first official Benner Fit class, YogaStyle! You can register starting today for our October 26th class over at EventBrite.

We really cannot wait to see you there!
Fun activities that will help you to stay fit and fabulous this summer!
I'm guilty! I judged a book by its cover and that cover was "Zumba." The Latin dance fitness craze that people go nuts over! I always thought it was a silly little dance class that would give you a mediocre workout. I never gave it a chance until last Friday. I'm upset without myself that I didn't try it until then because let me tell you it was a booty kickin' good time!
It's a killer cardio workout and you don't want to stop even when you could drop down to the floor from exhaustion because you are having such a great time. My cheeks hurt after class because I literally was smiling the whole time. And that's not just a cheesy comment I am just stating the truth Bennerfitters!
I always say the instructor is what makes the class dynamic. It is the instructors job to lead a class, get your students motivated, stay determined, all while helping them feel better and creating a happy environment. Our Zumba instructor did just that and I plan on taking it again this Friday night! It's so much better then dancing the night away in a silly ol' club! There's no judgement so if some students struggle with picking up the steps you should always keep in mind, just do what you can and be proud of that!
Whether you are a man or a woman it does not matter because let's face it everyone needs to let lose and dance sometimes!

Greetings from Knoxville Tennessee! Good mornin', afternoon, and evenin' folks! I've been in Knoxville for three days and I'm already picking up a Southern twang, ha!
Before I started spending a lot of time in Tennessee, I always assumed the South was full of butter, fried foods, a lack of fitness studios and so on...
Sorry Southerners, I made a bad assumption! Although the butter and fried foods are here, there is another side to the darling city of Knoxville, TN...
Let me tell you about my fabulous day today. It's only 2:45 PM in Knoxville on this beautiful Wednesday afternoon and I slept in, spent time with my dog Jojo and my boyfriend's parents dogs: Henry (the alien), Tucker (the baby), and Ben (the sweet old man). Starting any day surrounded by loving dogs gets an A + in my book.
My boyfriend likes me to rest on vacation - and so do I - but I must say, I still have to get my workouts in! He gave in and took me to "The Glowing Body" in downtown Knoxville. It's a lovely yoga studio and to only pay 5 dollars (yes I said it, 5 dollars!) for a class is incredible! You definitely don't find that in LA!
It was a very relaxing yoga class, which we all need from time to time, and I love this sweet little studio. All the instructors I've had walk around and correct your alignment and are so encouraging throughout the entire class .
After any class I take, even the relaxing ones, I usually have a hungry tummy, so right away Ian took me down the street to the Three Rivers Co-Op Market. It's a local, independent deli and grocery which I must say I adore! A lot of the food sold there is vegetarian or vegan, and locally and regionally grown. I'm a big fan! Ian and I got a kale salad, a rustic veggie soup with sweet potatoes, quinoa and polenta cakes, and a bottle of kombucha! A big meal full of YUM!
I feel nourished, fueled, and refreshed!
I'm back at the house now, outside playing with the dogs. This day is a little slice of perfection! Moral of the story is that it doesn't matter where you go, you can always find ways to take care of yourself. I encourage you all to take the time to do so when you are on the road, whether for the Holidays or in the New Year.
I'll report back tomorrow evening with great recipes for making a healthy, Southern, Holiday meal!
If you are in the Los Angeles area, come join me this week at any of the below classes!
