Lizzi benton

studio manager / instructor

Where are you from and where did you grow up?

I was born and raised from Sarasota, Florida, the most beautiful place on earth.

What brought you to Tuscaloosa and what do you do here outside of True40?

I attended the University of Alabama for undergrad. My husband is the Student Director at Church of the Highlands Tuscaloosa, which is what brought us back to Title Town. Outside of True40 you'll find me with my hubs, Tyler, hopping around local coffee shops or snuggling with our pup, Blu. I also love to travel, road trips are my jam!

How do you love your body and stay true to you?

I love my body and stay true to myself by having a balance in all aspects of my life. Listening to what your body needs is important, even if that includes the occasional late night ice cream! 

Why is fitness important to you?

Fitness is important to me because it challenges me to be a better person physically, mentally and spiritually. 

Why would you tell someone to try True40?

True40 is more than just a workout, its a family! The community behind True40 is encouraging, uplifting and supportive! True40 is unlike any other workout because its about being true to yourself and your body. We are all created in the Lord's image, and True40 highlights that! 

What is one item on your bucket list?

To dive down to the Mariana Trench, its the deepest part in the whole ocean.

What is one thing most people don’t know about you?

I told my parents growing up I wanted to be a cat. hahah
