CATE RIGOULOT 27 Jan 2014
From: Hamden, CT
Favorite City: Paia, HI
Favorite Lithe Workout: Thinny & High Waisted
Favorite Lithe Exercise: CCS sequence from Tight End
How'd she land a spot on the Lithe team: Cate is an experienced teacher with a great eye for misalignment and poor form. She has super strength, stamina and form, and I think that you'll agree that you can't help but like her. She can crack the whip and be funny (and a little bit goofy) in the best possible way!
Other Job: High school science teacher
Enjoys: walking around the city with her husband & two dogs, curling up with green tea on a Sunday morning, baking, cooking, going to concerts and music festivals, traveling, hiking, SCUBA diving, dark chocolate, and spending time with friends and family.
What you wouldn't know by looking at her: She was a nationally competitive pairs figure skater throughout high school and traveled to St. Petersburg, Russia to train for a month when she was 15. She stopped skating to study environmental science at Trinity College and focused her research on insect chemical ecology. She was raised as a vegetarian and has never eaten chicken, beef, or pork, but will eat fish while traveling under certain circumstances. She's a scientist and a naturalist at heart and knows lots of interesting, mostly random, facts about a variety of plants & animals. She also has a knack for identifying dog breeds.
