Last night at the launch of the newest member of the Bench Body family, we were, to be honest, expecting a typical host-introduces-new-girl-question-and-answer type of event. Obviously, Bench proved us wrong. Greeted by a stage surrounded by ropes depicting that of a boxing ring with poles and punching bag inside upon entry,we all couldn’t wait to see what the retail giant had in store for us.
After the grueling wait, out came Ellen Adarna in nothing but a black robe, sparkling boxing gloves, and of course, an itty-bitty but absolutely striking pair of Bench undergarments. As soon as she stripped off her robe, the vixen in her was unleashed, and everyone, and we mean everyone, was glued.
She demonstrated her mad kickboxing,
and Plyo skills that wowed and impressed us all.
It’s one thing to walk down the runway in lingerie or a bikini, but to deliver a complete performance sans all the trash makes one a total bad ass! Instead of envying and hating, all we felt was admiration for our fierce June Preview cover girl. Her petite yet toned frame was enough to leave the guests with only positive reactions: the men were all smiles up to their ears, and the girls were pumped up, inspired ,and totally ready to get not only the new line of Bench Body wear, but also her hot bod.
If the photos are not enough to convince you of how we felt, check out her three #GetThisBody videos:
Now do you understand? After a full Monday of work and meetings, all we wanted was to go to the gym.We couldn't believe it ourselves, but that was what we're now calling, "The Ellen Effect".
