SHE'S LITHE: LAUREN CORRIGAN 13 Jun 2016

RockCenter
 
What motivates you to stay consistent with Lithing? I am someone who lives by a schedule. Ever since I was a little kid, I always plotted out every minute of the day and had a to-do list. Without one, I feel overwhelmed very quickly. When it comes to Lithe, a regular routine is the primary reason for me consistently going to the studio. A few months after joining, I started taking 6AM classes every day. I loved knowing that nothing could interfere with my workout time. Now that I'm doing the LBActive Instagram challenges, I take less days off. It's easier to complete these challenges because a group of us do them right after our workout. If I skip class, I have to do it alone, which is way less fun. 
 
When you've had a long day, how do you de-stress? At the end of the day, I like to watch TV, knit, or read. I also believe that a good mani-pedi solves any problem.
 
What is the most rewarding aspect of Lithe to you? The most rewarding aspect has been my enjoyment of working out, my consistency in staying in shape, and how great I feel each day. I recently ran a 5K and placed third in my age group without much training. I owe that to Lithe. I'm an active person who has worked out for years, but never as consistently as this last year at Lithe. I would be excited about running, and then have an injury that broke my routine (like I said, I'm all about routines). I did the Insanity program, but after the two months were over, I'd have nothing else to do and not work out again. When I started Lithing, I was so excited to come to class that I had to force myself to take rest days at times. 
 
If you were a Lithe class, which would you be and why? Skinny Jeans. My lower body is much stronger than my upper body, which helped me back in my ski racing days. I also think of myself as very straightforward and by the books.  
 
What do your friends and/or family think you do when you're at the studio? Have you ever shown them your CCS moves? They know that I'm having a blast with my workouts since I talk about them nonstop. I brought my mom to a Freestyle class, so I couldn't prepare her at all! She loved it and kept me updated on how she was (happily) sore for the next week. I subject my boyfriend to the Instagram videos. I've yet to bring him to a class. Here's to hoping. 
 
What is the first concert you went to? The very first concert I went to was REM. I was about 3 or 4-years-old and had cotton balls in my ears. I have the ability to fall asleep easily and preceded to do so at the concert. My first concert with friends was an NSYNC concert. I definitely did not fall asleep during that one. 
 
If you were stranded on a desert island, what are the three products you'd need to survive? Coffee, oatmeal, and a Kindle.

SHE'S LITHE: EMILY RISSER 6 Jun 2016

What motivates you to stay consistent with Lithing? I like the mind/body balance Lithe has added to my life.  The results I have seen have been great.  The variety of classes keeps me excited and constantly ready to step up to the next challenge.  Also, it is super inspiring to be surrounded by so many strong, fit women! 

When you've had a long day, what do you like to do to de-stress? Wine and/or a bubble bath usually do the trick.

What is the most rewarding aspect of Lithe to you? I feel strong and centered after each class.   I don’t have a dance or cheerleading background, so originally I was drawn to the sculpting classes.  Lately, I’ve gravitated more to the CCS, because it’s fun and I feel a sense of accomplishment when I finally master a sequence.  I leave the studio ready to conquer the world!        

If you were a Lithe class, which would you be and why? Probably Split, because I am constantly on the go.

What do your friends and/or family think you do when you're at the studio? Have you ever shown them your CCS moves?  I don’t think my friends or family have any idea what I do in the studio, but they know I’m obsessed with going and my favorite class is Twiggy.  Only my cat Chloe has seen me practicing my Lithe moves.  I am selective about my audience. :)

If you were stranded on a desert island, what are the three products you'd need to survive?  Sunscreen, coconut water and wine.

SHE'S LITHE: JULIA HAVERTY 30 May 2016

What motivates you to stay consistent with Lithing?
The ripple effect that Lithe has on the rest of my life is what keeps me coming back. I've been a consistent Rittenhouse 6AMer (shoutout to my #RH6amers!) for several years now, and I've found that beginning my day with Lithe sets me on a trajectory of being more productive, making healthier choices, and starting my day feeling happier than I normally would. On days where I skip the 6AM because I'm too tired (the bedtime struggle is real when you get up at 5:30AM), I have a harder time getting out of bed, feeling motivated, and getting into the groove of my day. I schedule Lithe classes on important days at work, so that I set myself up for success. This included a period of time last summer when I went to Boston for work every week. I hit the 6AM class every Monday, even though I needed to leave by 6:30 to catch my flight.  

When you've had a long day, what do you like to do to de-stress? When I've had a long day, I need to talk it out before I can relax. This usually means talking to my parents, my boyfriend, or some trusted colleagues. Sometimes receiving advice is helpful, but usually I just need to vent. Once that's out, then having wine and watching some renovation show on HGTV is my favorite guilty pleasure. 

What is the most rewarding aspect of Lithe to you? Every 6AM class I make it to is rewarding. I've never been consistent with working out. I was the type that joined a new gym, yoga studio, etc. and started out strong, and then fizzled out. This is the only workout that I've ever been consistent with and I consider every morning that I get myself out of bed before most of the world wakes up to be a huge victory. I'm confident that anyone who says that they hate working out just hasn't found their workout yet. Lithe may not be the right fit for everyone, but I'm so glad that it is for me. 

If you were a Lithe class, which would you be and why? I would be Pom, because I like feeling a sense of accomplishment. Pom was one of the first CCS classes that I took. I was a new 6AMer and didn't realize that the class was full of veterans who show up every day. These ladies had taken Pom many times before and they were all crushing the CCS. Meanwhile, my head was spinning – round up, down, shimmy shimmy, higher power, punch, punch. It was out of control and moved so fast. Thankfully, Gerri took pity on me and went through each combination with me after class. The next week, when I came back, I was ready! Gerri even noticed my improvement and called it out. That was probably the moment that hooked me. Pom is still my favorite class and I love being able to crush the CCS, especially the sequence at the end when you have to dig deep to finish strong. 

Have you met anyone through Lithe that has become a friend, in or out of the studio? My Lithe bestie stories are hilariously awkward. I remember seeing Lauren F. at Sip 'n' Glow. She looked familiar, but we didn't know each other's names. We had an introduction right in the middle of the juice shop. Most of my other stories are Lithe friendships forged while waiting in the shower line or videotaping workouts together for Lauren's Instagram challenges, because those are totally normal ways to meet people (LOL).  

What do your friends and/or family think you do when you're at the studio? Have you ever shown them your CCS moves? For some reason, everyone at work thinks that Lithe Method has a lot of shouting in it. When I think of cheerleading, I think of the stunts, but a lot of people think of the cheers. I told them that there were only a few classes with shouting. I usually follow up my description of Lithe Method with one of the CCS videos that Lauren posted a few years back of Rock Steady and Sleeveless. I can't say I've ever demoed any of the moves myself though.

LITHE ESCAPE FALL 2016 26 May 2016

OceanView2Ocean View3 Jake's

Lithe Escape is heading back to Jake's November 3-8, 2016! Jake's is earthy, friendly, rugged, red, rustic, local, sustainable and hip. It's the epitome of bohemian luxury.

The backstory: A good friend introduced Lauren to Treasure Beach in 2008, and she fell in love with the area, the welcoming community, and the friends that she made there. Treasure Beach and Jamaica's south coast are the antithesis of a tourist trap. It's off the beaten path, but it hasn't stopped her from returning again and again.

Treasure Beach is a tiny fishing village and the community there is truly unlike any other in Jamaica. Defined by the Santa Cruz Mountains and the rolling farmland of the Pedro Plains, Treasure Beach is known for its cacti, endless natural coastlines, and miles of sweeping savannas — not its white sand beaches or jungle-like rain forests. Treasure Beach is renowned for its warm people, deep community spirit, and rich history (which even includes a Scottish shipwreck from the 19th century). 

Full Disclosure: This is the real Jamaica. It's almost a 3-hour drive from the airport, so get ready for an adventure that you'll never forget and to fall in love with a place where you'll most certainly leave your heart. 

What is Lithe Escape? Imagine one week to focus on yourself ... a better body, more confidence, lessons learned, fabulous food and fitness, inches and pounds lost (without going hungry), unparalleled results, and an entire support system of like-minded people. Get excited for girl time and downtime, a healthier body and mind, unbelievably delicious food, and a week that's all about you
