PLEASE RESERVE 29 Oct 2016

Hey Lithers,
 
Lithe has never been a "drop-in" studio, so let's chat about the importance of reserving your spot in class ahead of time!  We love when you can make it to the studio to drop into class at the last minute whether it's due to canceled plans, or if you're in the hood, but please give us a heads up that you are coming.  While our morning classes often have lengthy wait-lists, our mid-day classes are at risk of cancellation if we don't have enough reservations to hold the group class. 
 
Did you know you can reserve on MindBody or the Lithe app up to 15 minutes before class? We're a lot like a restaurant and it's tough to plan for you if we don't know you're coming.  We try to set up the studio and provide props for the number of Lithers scheduled - with a small padding for a few walk-ins - we love having advanced notice that you're coming our way either via online sign-ups or a phone call to the desk staff.  This way, even if it's just 15 minutes before class starts, we can rearrange mats in the studio to make sure you have a great view of your instructor and plenty of room so you don't fear getting kicked in the face during see-saws. And your instructors really love to know who they are training ahead of time (especially in our FreeStyle workouts). 
 
We want to make sure you have the best experience in each workout, and a heads up that we'll be seeing you is so helpful.
 
See you around the studios,
Lithe

DEAR LITHE (LOVE LETTERS) 26 Oct 2016

Dear lithe

Pamela

Dear Lithe, 
 
I love before-and-after pictures. Whether it's a home renovation, a child star then and now, or a fitness success story, seeing progress side by side is an exciting look back in time.  For me, the before-and-after pictures attached are not only exciting, but so much more. They are validation that my decision to come back to Lithe has been more than worth it. 
 
I first heard about Lithe in 2012 from my close friend and co-worker at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (Jaime Powers is a former PICU colleague. Hey, Jaime!). I was a college senior, so after I tried a Lithe 101, I was #blessed with a Rue La La and a gift card for classes. I bought an unlimited package, got another Rue La La and when that was up in February 2014, I fell off the wagon. Using money as an excuse, I stopped going and tried to forget about how great I felt after a hard hour on the mat and at the barre.
 
In May, while perusing Facebook, I saw a five-class card for cheap. My favorite kind of post. It shouted at me, "Hello! Lithe is still here! And look it's on sale. Get back here!" Like the obvious bargain Betty that I am, I bought the deal and went to a class the next day. From the minute I walked into the studio and smelled the tea tree oil scent, felt the solid mat under my feet, and started to inhale and exhale to some bumping music, I knew I wouldn't be able to stop.
 
Now, it's October and I'm writing this from the couch with a satisfying ache after a 4:30PM Skinny Mini with Lauren. It's only been six months, but I want to explain how much of a difference the time has made. As you can see in my before picture, I've always been active. I reward myself with beer and other not so Lithe foods, but that hasn't changed. I love to run, and those two-and-half years I wasn't Lithing, I was a gym-goer. But clearly, was in a rut. My weight never seemed to go down, clothes fluctuated between too tight and meh...
 
Then May hit. Then June and and July. Coworkers and friends commented that I looked good or asked if I lost weight. My response was, "I'm trying." Because that's what I've done my whole adult life. Try and try. But something was different this time. I actually DID look good. I actually HAD lost weight. But I wasn't doing anything that differently ... except Lithe.  
 
I can only take three or four classes each week due to my 12-hour days as a nurse, so it feels like I'm rarely there. That's why Lithe has been so incredible. Because of the seemingly instant results. Lithers know that just an hour doesn't mean a short workout. Every single class we work more muscle groups than we realize. And for those reading that haven't had the pleasure of taking a class, trust me.
 
I do not have an artistic sense, but I marvel at Lauren's talent for creating these classes. The brand is addicting for a reason. I'm proud to say that I am hooked. And she's picked equally talented and passionate people to teach alongside her. Thank you to all the teachers who have motivated me, corrected my form, and continued the hype that keeps me coming back. See you tomorrow, Skinny Jeans.
 
Love, 
Pam

ELIZABETH TOMKINS' SKINNY MINI PLAYLIST 22 Oct 2016

Have you taken Skinny Mini with Master Instructor Elizabeth Tomkins? If not, you're missing out! To be honest, Elizabeth could probably teach without any music at all and her signature blend of grinning and growling would inspire you to push through grapevines, grounded abs, and liberties at the barre for the full hour. Luckily, she made this badass playlist for all of you to sweat it out to during Skinny Mini - enjoy!

FIT.HIP.FRIDAY GIVEAWAY! 21 Oct 2016

Ekaterina for Lithe Giveaway

TGIF, Lithers! This week we have a giveaway of the decadent Ekaterina Luxury Cream from Sabbatical Beauty. Did we mention 2 ounces retails for $175??

The cream is made of four types of caviar extract, three types of gold and white truffle extract. Caviar is well known for providing essential Omega three oils and has anti-aging properties. The gold in the Ekaterina cream comes in three different forms: colloidal gold (small, microscopic gold particles suspended in distilled water), fermented gold (yeast that has been enriched with gold and then harvested), and real 24 karat gold that both tops the cream and is dispersed throughout the jar. The Ekaterina Cream is part of Sabbatical Beauty's limited edition Fall collection, CRISP.

Sabbatical Beauty was founded by Lither Adeline Koh, Ph.D. Originally trained as a humanities professor, Adeline began researching skin care and making her own beauty products when she was frustrated with existing products on the market. The majority of brands loudly proclaim "active" ingredients on their packaging, but these actives make up only a tiny percentage of these ingredients. She decided to make her own products to really maximize these active ingredients. After seeing the results on her skin, which used to be red, dry and acne-prone, her friends demanded that she make products for them as well. They then overwhelmingly reported about how well the products worked and how quickly--diminishing redness and acne, filling in fine lines and wrinkles, and brightening complexions. Her friends then encouraged her to open up shop, resulting in SabbaticalBeauty.com.
 
To dive deep into the Sabbatical Beauty community sharing reviews and no-makeup selfies, join their Facebook Group and like them on Facebook! Everybody wins here, too, as Adeline has extended a 10% discount to all Lithers new to Sabbatical Beauty by emailing her at info@sabbaticalbeauty.com.

For a chance to win, please comment which product from the CRISP collection looks most enticing to you. One winner will be chosen at random on Monday, so you have three days to enter. One entry per person. Thanks and good luck!
