This week, we get to know Lither (and 2014 Earned In Winter Challenge winner), Jenn Seltzer!
Has the Lithe Varsity 250 class requirement served as a motivation to get into the studio when you otherwise may have skipped your workout? Yes – the way I go into the challenges is to try to get them done with day(s) to spare at the end. That way if something comes up (with a job and two kids you never know!) at least I’ll have the classes done. Although much longer, I view Varsity similarly and gave myself a July 31st deadline instead of August. So, on nights when I was tired and I’d think about canceling my 6AM – I just didn’t! I’m proud that I beat my own internal deadline and finished my 250th class in June.
When you've had a long day, how do you de-stress? Recently, I started trying out recipes and making healthy things for me and my husband to eat. I’d love if my kids would too, but most of the time they won’t try anything I make. Some of my favorites to play around with are granola, copying the Lithe raw oatmeal (I will get it to be perfect), and anything with my Spiralizer!
What is the most rewarding aspect of Lithe to you? I love how I feel – both mentally and physically. I have gotten so much stronger over the past few years of Lithe. But probably the most rewarding part is the friends that I’ve made. I love the camaraderie of Lithers and the instructors. I’ve met so many people with so many different stories, backgrounds, and experiences. I tend to arrive (very) early for class so I can chat with everyone.
If you were a Lithe class, which would you be and why? Probably Thinny. It’s grounded, yet deceivingly tough. I’d like to say Freestyle, but despite it being one of my favorite classes (I love not knowing what’s coming next!) – it is the opposite of my overly type A personality.
Any special talents? I can tie a cherry stem with my tongue. I can turn my tongue upside down. And I can make it into a flower.
Who was your celebrity crush when you were in middle school? Kirk Cameron was plastered on my wall.
What was the first concert you went to? Jack Wagner … I can’t even begin to explain. I had a thing for Frisco from General Hospital.
