Jennifer Runyan is a certified Crossfit coach, life-long fitness junkie, a law enforcement officer, and a champion lindy hopper from Sacramento, California. Basically, a total bad-ass. She wants you to be a bad-ass lindy hopper too, which is why she started Lindy Fit. Specifically, Jennifer started Lindy Fit to: 

help fellow lindy hoppers and swing dance enthusiasts improve their fitness and performance on the dance floor by providing access to resources and workouts that focus on eight key elements of fitness: cardiovascular/muscular endurance, strength,  power, speed, flexibility, balance, coordination, and agility.

Read about Jennifer's inspiring / tiring work-out regime that keeps her in top competition form.  She's got several workout videos that show how its done, like the innocent sounding, but intense "Alphabet Soup" core exercise.

Other stuff we liked this week:

  • Videos from the 2017 Seoul Lindy Fest are out, which you should definitely binge on. Just a couple of our favorites: 테일 & 하고 took first place in the couples division with some clever and funny choreo that you'll watch over and over. And Ninano just tears it up in a fierce team routine that took second place. I do a lot of shouting at my screen during their routine.
  • Judy Pritchett reshared footage that we had forgotten about, the Savoy Ballroom exhibit at the 1939 World’s Fair. It’s neat – and a little disconcerting – seeing Black dancers on display like that. Reportedly the dancers did performances every 20 minutes, day and night. I hope they got paid well! Mikey Pedroza writes more about it on his blog.
