SHANNON GRAHAM. 18 Apr 2012
From: Middletown, Pennsylvania (anyone old enough to remember Three Mile Island?)
Favorite City: NYC
Enjoys: Traveling, the beach, vacations with my family, wine, cooking for friends, finding new healthy recipes, Lithing, running, golfing, and shopping.
Favorite Lithe Exercise: Jumping lunges - I'm a cardio junkie so I love how quickly they raise your heart rate while at the same time do some serious sculpting.
Other Job: Leads Federal Alliance Development for a health care trade association
How'd she land a spot on the Lithe team? Shannon caught my eye the first time she took one of my classes and then I got to know her better at Camp Lithe. She has incredible strength and perfect form, she's positive, powerful, fun, friendly and just adores Lithe. I just love her spirit. The one thing that blows me away is how committed she is. She is a woman after my own heart. During Instructor Training, she took a new job opportunity in DC. Instead of walking away from Lithe, she took the train up every Wednesday night after work (late), trained until 10PM and then traveled back to DC in the wee hours of the morning. I know that everyone will love taking her classes. You'll be able to catch her on the weekends in Philly!
What you wouldn't know just by looking at her: I'm 37 years old, I live in DC during the week and spend most of my weekends in Philly. I have a sweet little Maltese named Daisy. I'm the oldest of three. My brother and his new bride live in the city, and my sister, her husband and the love of my life, my niece Chloe live in Hershey, PA. I graduated from West Virginia University with a degree in Political Science. Years ago I was Spinning and a Pilates instructor. I ran the Philly Marathon in 1999, and I placed second in my age group in my first (and so far only) triathlon. I have a wicked sweet tooth and live for Sunday brunch with my girlfriends.
