John Benton Model Fitness

John is the founder of John Benton Model Fitness in Dallas, Texas. During an interview with Harpers Bazaar in 2017, he said he didn’t start by traing only female models as he currently does.

“About five and a half years ago, one of my friends who was a booker for Kim Dawson agency—the largest model agency in Dallas—liked the way that I trained. He referred one of their girls to me—she had a lot of potential but her hip measurements were a little too big for the industry. I stepped back and realized I couldn’t train a model the same way I train normal girls. Normal girls aren’t that worried about their hip measurements.

With female modeling, waist measurements and hip measurements can make or break your career, so I stepped back and through a little bit of trial and error adapted the way that I trained and changed the way I recommended diets.”

His technique worked getting the client’s hips from 37.5 inches to 34 inches. His sucess stories spread spread like wildfire throughout the modeling community.

His technique is a mix of cardio and isolation toning of the inner and outer thighs, hips, and waist—with a heavy focus on building a strong core. These techniques are effective on their own, but Benton trains his clients for almost two hours a day, five to six days a week to maximize their results.
