Lyz is one of the fittest girls we know. She leads a bootcamp every week where she drills us into shape. She recently moved back to Vancouver from Victoria and we are thrilled. It is wonderful to have Lyz back in the Fenntessa Fashion Show. Once you see her on the runway you will understand the reason for doing squats. Suns Out Buns Out.
Fenntessa: This year's collection is inspired by sports. Do you have a favourite sport or physical activity? Can you describe some of the things you do to stay healthy, happy and swimsuit ready?
Lyz: Is walking a sport? I crave movement and nature, so anything that combines the two is my jam. My favorites are hiking, running, snowshoeing, skiing and of course walking. I like variety so I switch things up every day. Throughout the week I walk, run, cycle, lift weights, swim and do yoga.
Fenntessa: Do you have a favourite work out song, or a jam that makes you feel on top of world?
Lyz: 90’s hip hop classics. I saw Jurassic 5 last summer and my 15-year old self was very happy.
Fenntessa: We all have to eat. But what are your fave foods when you're trying to stay in tip top shape? On the other hand, What is your favourite junk food?
Lyz: Tacos. Or roasted yam, black bean and kale salad with toasted almonds. Simple, nutritious and crazy delicious. I’m a sucker for nachos too. I have a wicked sweet tooth but follow a general guideline of 80/20 and no desserts before dinner. I don’t believe in “dieting”.
Fenntessa: We LOVE to travel. What's the best vacation you've ever taken?
Lyz: I’ve travelled the world but my favourite spots are in BC. The Juan de Fuca trail holds a
special place in my heart.
Fenntessa: The print this year is an imaginative composition of animals playing sports. Do you have a favourite animal?
Lyz: Fox. Or an eagle, since this majestic animal can fly.
