UP CLOSE WITH SUKEY HENDRIX 27 Jan 2016
What is your favorite class to teach? I recently started teaching Action Figure and we’ve developed a love affair. This class is packed with amazing material incorporating all of Lithe’s best moves. With cardio, sculpting, and barre work this class has it all. I love the mental challenge it presents to me as an instructor. Learning this class was a challenge- just ask my poor boyfriend. I made him listen to me practicing for days before teaching it for the first time. Having weights on both your wrists and ankles really ups the challenge for Lithers, and I love seeing them get stronger every week!
Did you ever go through an awkward phase? That’s an easy one: I’m still in one. I think I will forever be in an awkward phase. Even as an adult I find myself constantly evolving. Once you think I’ve figured it all out, the next day life throws a curve ball and I’m back at square one. That is the beauty of life! Being a young adult is all about going through awkward phases and learning curves. I’m going to embrace the heck outta them!
What song always pumps you up? Back in the true awkward phase days, aka high school, my mom would have to physically drag me out of bed. When even her strongest attempts failed, she resorted to blaring music on my stereo which made it impossible to sleep. “Let’s Hear It for the Boy” by Deniece Williams was the first song on the CD. Every morning this jam would come on and my little feet would start boogying under the covers. It gave my lifeless body energy and still does to this day. Whenever I need a pick-me-up that song is my go to.
What's your favorite body part? My nose. It is small, cute, and symmetrical. I’ve gotten asked if I had a nose job, but this baby is au naturel.
If you could have a superpower, what would it be? Having super strength, the ability to fly, or be invisible are great, but wouldn’t it be awesome to have them all? That’s why I want to be a wizard. Literally Hermione Granger can do anything, and that’s a true superpower. I still have confidence the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is real. If anyone has an in with the school, my application is ready to go.
