We may recognize a fellow Lither's trendy embellished flats near the door, how low she can go in wide second, and whether she uses 3, 5, or 8 pound weights for candlestick pulses, but what do we know about her outside the studio? In our new series She's Lithe, we'll get to know a bit more about her!
What's your secret to consistently incorporating Lithe into your schedule? I sign up for classes in advance and put them on our calendar at home. If it is on the calendar than I make myself go and I always know I have someone to watch the baby.
When you've had a long day, what do you like to do to de-stress? When I am stressed and can make it to a class then that is all I need! On days that I am not able to make a class I love to veg out in front of the TV, take a walk with my family, shop, or try a new restaurant with friends!
What is the most rewarding aspect of Lithe to you? I think the most rewarding aspect has been the transformation I have seen in my body. I started regularly Lithing after I had my baby about a year ago and I feel stronger now than I did pre-pregnancy. The most challenging aspect of Lithe to me has been learning the cardio cheer sequences. When I started taking classes I always avoided the ones that were high cardio because I am not the most coordinated person and the cardio scared me. I finally forced myself to try higher power and I instantly fell in love with the class! It is my new fave and I try to take it as much as possible.
If you were a Lithe class, which would you be and why? If I were a Lithe class, I would be Thinny. It keeps me grounded, focused and helps to make me leaner and stronger. These are things that I strive for every day!
What's your signature drink? Vodka on the rocks with a splash of water and lots of lemon.
Who was your celebrity crush when you were in middle school? Luke Perry, I was obsessed with Dylan McKay-he was the ultimate bad boy.
