John Benton Is the ‘Hips Whisperer’ for Dallas Models

Models, actresses, beauty queens, and those aspiring to be fly from both coasts and as far as Vancouver to work with John Benton, aka the “hips whisperer.” After his first model client, Rachel Thomas, trimmed 3.5 career-making inches off her middle, the trainer gained a rep for helping women swiftly—and healthily—slim to runway proportions. Since then, a community of svelte female figures has thrived in his Design District studio, where he hosts group training sessions throughout the week. Benton’s isolation-toning technique and nutritional secrets have previously been reserved for his exclusive client list. But with the launch of a new website, anyone can now access his expertise—at a price. Workout instructions cost $100 each, and a package that includes a phone consultation with Benton, nutrition plan, and access to all six workouts runs $1,000. Steep, perhaps. Then again, there must be a reason why, just after this shoot, Benton jetted off to the Miss USA pageant to watch eight of his clients compete for the crown (one won).
