SHE'S LITHE: NICOLE ROSSI 30 Nov 2015

Nicole Rossi

What motivates you to stay consistent with Lithing? I like being able to change up my workout on the regular. Before Lithe, I rarely stuck to anything for longer than six months. When something isn't challenging for me anymore, boredom sets in fast. Especially when the routine never changes (hello, Bikram!). Lithe constantly challenges me and it's fun. Just what I need to stay hooked.

When you've had a long day, how do you de-stress? Usually a quick manicure or a massage at the spa does the trick. When I need something ASAP (and with zero cost), '70s soul tunes take me to my happy place. And I'm lucky that certain aspects of my work have a calming effect on me. I own a floral subscription service called THE FLWRY and on days when I spend time playing with flowers, it brings me the most positive vibes. Being surrounded by beautiful things on the regular (like flowers!) is a complete game changer in the world of boosting happiness levels.
 
What is the most rewarding aspect of Lithe to you? For me, Lithe never really gets easier, which is rewarding because I know it means with every workout I am pushing myself. Not just because I am physically stronger, but because my mind tells me I can handle it. Getting through a set of push-ups on my toes in the middle of Lauren's Freestyle was laughable a few months ago, mostly because I told myself I couldn't do it. Lithe trains you to focus on having a "can do" attitude.
 
If you were a Lithe class, which would you be and why? Freestyle for sure! I live for spontaneity and I love surrounding myself with people who also enjoy being adventurous, trying new things, and easily go with the flow.
 
What is the first album you remember buying? TLC's Crazy Sexy Cool. "Waterfalls" was my jam. I listened to the entire album on repeat while singing/dancing/jumping on my bed. 
 
What is the most exotic location you've ever visited? The most exotic location I WILL be visiting is Colombia. In addition to Bogota and Cartagena, I'll celebrate my 30th birthday this January on the tiny island of Providencia which requires two flights from the main land. It's in the middle of nowhere and my room will have a view of nothing but gorgeous, clear, sparkling, blue water.

WHICH LITHER ARE YOU? (RE-POST) 23 Nov 2015

Which-lither-are-you

We thought that this re-post was perfect with our Fall Transformation ending...

RateYourBurn.com brought this hilarious blog post to our attention on Facebook. It's a collection of the stereotypes of all the different types of barre-bies (women who take barre classes) that one may encounter in any of the different barre methods that are out there.

Lither Dana Auriemma thought it was hilarious, and could definitely relate, but since Lithe is a truly unique workout with a different set of rules, she came up with her own set Lither stereotypes. Which one are you? We know we've been a bunch of them at one time or another!  Download Which Lither Are You?

SHE'S LITHE: LYNNE FULLER 23 Nov 2015

DSC_4530

This week we learn about Lither Lynne Fuller. 

What motivates you to stay consistent with Lithing? After Rich and I were married, I grew tired of barre classes. I went to them to prepare for our wedding, but they did not challenge me the way biking, climbing, or a hard run would. My hope was to find a fitness routine that kept me in great physical shape and helped me de-stress. One day, I was stopped on Haverford Station Road and saw the Main Line studio signs. Soon after I found a 5-pack of classes. Now I always plan my work schedule around Lithe. 
 
I love Lithing because it makes me feel better than the two-a-day practices that I did as a swimmer in college. I had a career-ending shoulder injury that required either surgery with a 50% result or that I give up the sport. I turned to running which gave me a knee injury, plantar fasciitis, and shin splints. I needed something that would allow me to feel in shape, but not beat me up. I modify, but I can honestly say that my shoulders work better than they did before the injury. I also wear sneakers to class for my foot/knee problems, so if you see me sporting super bright trainers while doing plyos you'll know why.
 
When you've had a long day, how do you de-stress? Well, there has been a lot of stress lately. We recently purchased a 92-year-old house that needs a lot of TLC. We also have a Bernese/Golden puppy who should have been named Marley. So if the house is standing and the dog has not eaten my latest issue of Us Weekly, you'll find me catching up on celebrity gossip with a glass of Sebastiani cabernet in hand (sometimes two) on Friday evenings. 

What is the most rewarding aspect of Lithe to you? The clap series and lunges during Rock Steady. I envision that with every clap the floppy part under my arms begins to look like Michelle Obama's. You may or may not agree with her political leanings, but no one can deny that she has some pretty amazing arms. 
 
If you were a Lithe class, which would you be and why? Rock Steady for the cardio-cheer-sequence and of course to hear Jonathan say, "they are attitudes, not borings!" Then I would roll out the rebounder for a the jumping sequences in Fat Free with Julie. These two classes are fun and every time I take them I see everyone else smiling through all the crazy sequences, so that keeps me going, too! 
 
What movie character do you most closely identify with and why? Kathleen Kelly (i.e. Meg Ryan) in "You've Got Mail." I met my husband online while I was hoping that I would find the perfect person that I already knew. It turns out that we have a close mutual friend and it kind of happened in the same way. Plus the scene where Brinkley (the golden retriever) heads over the hill in Central Park to meet Shopgirl brings tears to my eyes. I still have my AOL handle just to hear the phrase when I click my inbox.

What is the most exotic location you've ever visited? If we have two or three weeks to travel, we go, so this is a hard toss up. Here's my top five: Biking the islands of Croatia, surfing in Nicaragua, hiking Machu Picchu, swimming the Great Barrier Reef, or watching the rhinos in Kruger Park at dawn. Unfortunately, there's no travel in my future for awhile, but hopefully we will make it to Asia. Then I will have explored every continent except Antartica.
 

TRACKING YOUR PROGRESS "BEFORE & AFTER" 22 Nov 2015

B&A

Our Lithe Transformation ends on Tuesday! We're so impressed with your dedication to this challenge and we can't wait to see the results of your hard work. It's time to post your before and after #LitheResults #LitheTransformation photos. All you have to do is duplicate your exact before images. Choose the same spot and wear the same outfit, and then share. We want to see front, side, and back (top photo above), but if you only shot two viewpoints, place them side-by-side like the ones above.
