We all know that Lithe is different. Trying to navigate our studio schedules? We can help! Lauren creates workouts and programs the schedule, so that you achieve your best results without overworking muscle groups, or becoming imbalanced and injured.
What is Lithe? Our method is called Cardio-Cheer-Sculpting. CCS utilizes precise cheer-based movement to load muscles, produce a high cardio burn, and reduce fat zones all in a matter of 60 minutes. CCS targets all three zones of the body: the core, the lower body, and the upper body. In each workout, you’ll accelerate your burn (and results) with Lithe’s Higher Power Band System (which adds 12 to 15 lbs. of resistance), light to medium weights (3 to 20 lbs.), and other Lithe-exclusive props.
Every Lithe workout is total body, cardiovascular, and sculpting (think: sweaty). Some workouts produce a higher cardio burn and some are more sculpting (slower and grounded), and everything can be modified and tailored for you.
- If you're an every day Lither, just show up – the key takes the guesswork out for you.
- If you Lithe less than three days a week, you can pick and choose. Oppositional workouts will be held in our smaller studios beginning November 1, 2014!
- With CCS, it's best to alternate instead of rest. Alternating body parts keeps your workout moving and your body changing while giving muscles time to rest. Yes, you should take a rest day (or two) per week.
- Begin the week with our most core-focused workouts; it's crucial to begin with the center.
- On Tuesday and Thursday, our workouts require a lot of "UP" movement. Our band system also takes you higher and decreases joint stress. Achieve your best results by working against the bands by sculpting via Lithe's sponging technique.
- Sculpting is crucial to increase muscle and decrease fat. Achieve your very best results by moving slower with precision a few days a week.
- Many of our sculpting workouts also utilize our Higher Power Band System: Waspie, Thnny, Higher Power, High Waisted, Waist Not, and Endvy.
- You DO need repetition. If you stop doing our barre sequences you'll see how your body changes!
- Sore no more even after you've increased to 8 and 10 lb. weights? Good! Try not to use soreness as the gauge of a good workout. You're in Maintain Mode, and that's a beautiful thing!
- Beginner? Returning from a hiatus? Maybe you've been chasing a particular type of Lithe workout? Get back to the classics with the movements and workouts that build your Lithe foundation: Waspie, Higher Power, Skinny Jeans/Sculpt, Twiggy, and Pom.
