Benja Gets Active

It's SUMMER! We love Summer here at Benja and we also have some seriously preferred ways to stay active. We're pretty different but we do drag each other to our own favorite places when we get together. 

Our CEO Andrew loves to spin, run, and is starting to get into kiteboarding! It's important to note he's faithful to ONE cycling chain (Flywheel) and don't you dare try to convince him that, for example, SoulCycle could even be comparable.

Kiteboarding is a surface water sport combining aspects of wakeboarding, snowboarding, windsurfing, surfing, paragliding, skateboarding and gymnastics into one extreme sport. Andrew has already taken this interest to Hawaii and Antigua, while also tooling around some of the great spots in the Bay Area.

Our CTO Tommy is into two things: Ultimate and Disc Golf. You may be thinking "hey! those both require a frisbee!", which only means you're onto his scheme to be practicing for one sport while he's playing the other and vice versa. Here's a real life action shot of Tommy playing Ultimate:

Go Tommy go!!

Our CMO, Morgan, is game for anything with the exception of running. As of late, the group class she's into is OrangeTheory. It's got something to do with Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption (or EPOC), and you wear a heart rate monitor that you can track on the screen throughout the class. Sounds cool (but exhausting). She's also into hiking, being a SoCal native her favorite spots tend to be lined by the ocean.
