LITHE BESTIES 24 Nov 2014

  Besties-1

Q: How did you meet?
Shana: We met at a party our mutual friend Nicole had, and then recognized each other in class soon after. Our “spots” in class are next to each other and our class schedules are similar, so we started seeing each other frequently and then took our friendship outside of class, too. We both like to reward ourselves with a good cocktail and something yummy to eat (sometimes healthy and sometimes not)

We’ve also now recruited a couple of mutual friends to try Lithe and I think we’ve made a some converts! I just heard one of them say she’s “addicted.” I couldn’t be more happy to have our Lithe crew grow.
 
Kristy: What Shana doesn't know is that I remembered her as the girl who wore the VERY sparkly holiday dress to Nicole’s holiday pony party when we ran into each other at Lithe. I think during our first encounter or two, we were kind of awkward with each other as well. Then, it all came together and we went for drinks post-class. The rest is history. After all of the yapping we have done at dinner parties with our group of friends about Lithe or getting told to stop talking about Lithe, I cannot explain the excitement that they've all come over to our side. I almost cried from excitement, and then I got a hold of myself. But, it really is SO fun to be able to have our whole group plan post-Lithe lunch dates!

Q: What are your favorite Lithe classes to take together?
Shana: This one’s easy, and I know we’d both unanimously agree, Lauren’s Tuesday 12:15PM Freestyle is hands-down our favorite. Always a highlight of my day to take a break from work, get a good sweat, and be pushed to the limit by whatever new trick Lauren has up her sleeve.
 
Kristy: Um ... NO CONTEST on this. It's probably what was our first "Lithe Date" as well. Our "spots" thing mentioned in Question 1 we take super seriously. We have a pact that whoever is there first saves the other's spot. There was this one time I texted Shana to save my spot because I was running late and someone was in it. The pressure was too much and I think accidentally scowled at the girl in my spot. I am really sorry to whoever that was. Though I do still tease Shana that she failed at the task ;)  

Q: How do you motivate each other in Lithe and in life?
Shana: My motto is everything in moderation. We both try live a healthy lifestyle without being too restrictive. I think this is a healthy way to live and limit the binges that might come with complete restriction. We keep each other motivated to get to class and question where the other one was if we miss it. I think we're both equally good and bad influences on each other. So with my math it kind of evens out :)
 
Kristy: Oh it's true. Though I am usually the one that is on the receiving end of the shame texts stating that I saw your name on the class list. Where were you!? Shana is definitely the stronger of the two of us, so I always look to her to push myself for a extra rep or to go for the challenge. I agree with the moderation motto, though I also think we're a bit of work hard/play hard as well. I think she's giving me too much credit on the influence, but I'll take it!

Q: If you're not at the studio, where can we find you two together?
Shana: Sitting at a bar with a bourbon cocktail in hand.
 
Kristy: ALWAYS bourbon, and often at A.Bar. We're also very into Saturday Funday instead of Sunday Funday. It really is a wonderful thing and you don't start the work week dragging. I think there was only one time that we have been together outside of the studio where there wasn't bourbon involved and that was at Franklin institute's Science After Hours. We made toothpaste and lip gloss and drank wine and beer instead. Basically where there is good food and bourbon we go, and often it involves a dinner party at one of our houses with our girlfriends the Ponies!
 
Fun Fact: We share the same birthday
