New Birt’s Café Opens in Benevilla Benefitness Adaptive Gym

August 11, 2022

Benevilla is excited to announce they have opened Birt’s Café inside the Benefitness Adaptive Gym, their latest program designed to meet a vital community need. Birt’s Café will provide freshly made grab-and-go options promoting health and vitality.


“At Birt’s Café, we are all about wholesome, nutritious, organic, and healthy food. Food is our fuel source, our nourishment, and the cornerstone of good health,” says Birt’s Café Manager, Monica Gonzalez. “Many of our ingredients are locally sourced and everything is made to order fresh and quick.”


From a menu full of scrumptious salads (like our famous cranberry chicken salad) and delicious wraps, parfaits, oatmeal and an awesome line-up of smoothies, community oriented Birt’s Café is open to the public serving Surprise and the surrounding communities.


“We love preparing healthy food and food you can feel good about. You can dine-in or take-out.” says Lorrie Karn, Benevilla Director of Benefitness. “So, whether you’re a regular member of our adaptive gym, just looking for a healthy way to spend a morning or want to stop in for a nutritious salad, wrap or smoothie on the run, let us prove healthy can taste really good!”


Birt’s Café is the perfect complement to the unique adaptive gym and the “Caregiver Retreat,” a unique respite and relaxation space with massage chairs, aromatherapy, a water feature, and a conversation area. Caregivers can relax, have a bite, and enjoy a little “me time” while their loved one works out and improves their strength and wellbeing.


The Benefitness Adaptive Gym provides specialized individual and group fitness instruction to our community of adults with differing abilities and special physical considerations. This includes those with early onset diagnoses (e.g., Parkinson’s, dementia, MS, and more) looking to improve physical performance, mental acuity, strength, balance, and overall wellbeing.


Members will be mindfully guided to work out at their own ability level, yet coached to gain strength, mobility, and quality of life. Benefitness is the perfect gym for those who are just beginning their fitness journey, recovering from an illness or injury, or having a progressive diagnosis. Benefitness has carefully selected equipment and class programming adaptive to individuals needing exceptional care. If you would like more information or would like to take a behind the scenes tour, please call Benefitness at 623-584-0065.
