PURSUIT of FITNESS (Personal Training and Mobile Fitness)
One of Benny’s greatest accomplishments and most proud achievements is his gym, Pursuit of Fitness & Tampa Combat. Benny founded Tampa Combat in 2003 and it was one of Pinellas County’s first true MMA gyms offering wrestling, jiu-jitsu, kickboxing, and boxing classes. Since 2003 Tampa Combat has flourished into a respected house of amateur and professional fighters who compete in grappling tournaments, kickboxing events, and MMA events. It was also a thriving gym for enthusiasts and non-competitors alike who just enjoy the training element without the pressure of having to fight or compete.
In 2015 Benny took on a re-branding of the gym and added the name PURSUIT of FITNESS (POF) to better appeal to the local fitness enthusiasts and athletes. With this re-branding, Benny also moved out of the real estate location and is now focused on providing personal training sessions on location at local parks, beaches, businesses, and in the client’s home. Going mobile allows for a great opportunity to mix up the training and offer a true cross-training experience.
POF is home to several Professional Athletes who train here during their respected sport’s off-seasons. These athletes come from such sports as Major League Baseball and Professional Soccer. They are at POF for the coaching that Benny provides; taking great pride in his ability to teach the techniques and demonstrate the actions in a safe and controlled manner.
Benny is proud to provide a no ego training atmosphere. The door is always open, so to speak, to beginners, amateurs, and Pros alike.
