A brand new Pilates studio has hit Hollywood!  Check out our reviews!  

Syd's Review -

I am officially 7 hours post my Pilates class with my dear friend,Tia Schroeder, owner of the new Hollywood studio, Love For Pilates, and I am sore.  Whoa!  Super sore.  You guys know I workout all the time.  I'm either teaching, workshopping, choreographing, or taking a new class around the Los Angeles area.  I love it.  All of it.  Pilates is an amazing workout for your core, alignment, flexibility, and overall body health.  It's a workout built on resistance training and it is so effective which is why it has been so expensive all this time.  Tia has opened a beautiful welcoming studio that is bright, positive, and inexpensive so most people now have an opportunity to get on the Pilates train.  She is a detail oriented teacher that watches every student in the room carefully making sure every exercise is catered toward their specific needs.  Brooke and I felt amazing when we left.  If I'm sore now I can't imagine what tomorrow is going to feel like!  Thank you Tia, so much love to you!

Brooke's Review -

I've been embarrassingly out of commission when it comes to working out. No I didn't tear an ACL or anything bad*ss. Instead I sit at a job all day which has thrown my hip flexors way out of whack and left my hammies super tight. I had done one personal Pilates session before but never in a group. Tia is a smartie because after her class I had some serious Love 4 Pilates. It made me stretch, feel lengthened and it really, really worked my stiff little hips. To the point where she asked me to lift my legs into a tabletop and my mind was totally doing it but my legs were definitely not moving. What I liked even more about the class is the intimate vibe. Tia is so very caring and makes sure each class member is in alignment and doing the moves properly. I left the class feeling very refreshed and a few hours later I was maybe a little bit sore. Okay definitely. Definitely sore. Loved it Tia! I'll be back soon!

We feel blissful!  I've already been back and can't wait for more.

Our uLive Show Launch!

ulivelaunch

Well! It has been a bit crazy bananas over here in Benner Fit land in the very best of ways. Sydney and I have been working hard over the last few weeks on her latest fitness venture FLIGHT and it premiered this weekend! We couldn't have been happier with the way it went down and are so very grateful for all of you who were able to make it out for the big day. And for all of you who have been supportive of what we are doing - THANK YOU! We heart you big time. More of that to be blogged about soon enough.

Amidst the madness of prepping for Flight a few other AMAZING things happened. Like the fact that our first ever web show with the Scripps Network site uLive launched! Um... holy moly.  About a year ago Sydney and I starting going through ideas for a show that would be featured on uLive, and ultimately it turned into a summertime fun-time extravaganza. We are so happy with how it turned out. The amazing folks over at Watch It Now did fantastic job with the day of shoot and editing. The whole crew was wonderful and the shoot was a blast!

We made a little video about our excitement of the show launch:

We took a little breather after the Flight class Saturday, so we don't have a new circuit for you this week - but check out all of the BennerFit fun over on uLive to hold you over until next Monday - ulive.com/bennerfit.
