Giveaway Friday!

Happy Friday!  In celebration of Cinch's Best of Philly win, we're giving away two Lithe Haramaki's ($25/each value)!  You don't have to Lithe to win-A few of us wear our belly bands during the fall and winter to keep the heat in and stay "ab-aware."  Our haramaki's also make a great gift along with a class purchase.  For a chance to win, please visit our Facebook page, "Like us" and then leave a comment at the post.  A winner will be chosen at random tomorrow and the winner will be announced on Monday!  Good luck!

BOP! 29 Jul 2010


Congrats to Lithe for winning Philadelphia Magazine's Best of Philly award for Best New Mom fitness!  Last year Lithe's Waist-Not won the Best Workout Award and this year, it's Lithe's Cinch!  We're so proud!   

All of our classes are perfect for whipping that post-baby body into perfect shape, but Cinch really does tone the tummy and pull that post-baby loose skin back to the muscle with the quickness.  We're devising a perfect post natal plan and a great deal for all you new mom's out there!  Stay tuned!

Congrats, Lithers!  You bared it all this summer-and hopefully we've made all that revealing more 'bare'-able for you.  Summer is coming to a close and we at Lithe are thrilled for so many reasons-A new Lithe studio in the works, a Best of Philly award, fabulous new instructors and so much more! 

Check out our August schedules-we have oodles of 101's for newbies (and oldies), who want to jump in and get Lithe for fall.  Super Fly, Step Rally and Melt are back and Flyer debuts this month...We're taking Cardio-Cheer-Sculpting to the next level so that you can achieve your best body ever.  Lithe on!

NIKE FOR WOMEN. 26 Jul 2010


Nike's ads are so amazing.  The message, the writing...it's all good.  I often turn to them when I need a pick me up.  The newly redone butt ad is just unbelievable and it kinda reminds me a little of myself.  I love that she's not afraid to let it all hang out and that Nike is showcasing a women with an a**.  She looks incredible.

The heat of the weekend is gone and I'm sure some of us need some inspiration and positive reinforcement to get moving this Monday.  Here's some good, old fashion girl power for you.

MAKE WAVES! 22 Jul 2010


Liz and I are at the 3 month countdown to our October Lithe Escape to the beautiful island of Grenada!  I cannot wait. 

I sailed through the stunningly beautiful Grenadines back in 2007 and I'm so excited to return. I always say that I've been lucky enough to travel all over the world, have stayed in so many beautiful places and villas and our Lithe Escapes are the epitome of a perfect, girls only vacation. It's only a matter of time before Vogue Mag or Conde Nast Traveler features this and the cat will be out of the bag. 

Think that you'll be starving or over-worked?  Think again!  Our Escapes are perfectly planned-from the fitness to the delicious food on your plate, to the personalized attention and plenty of R & R time.  You'll even have wine if you want to (we're limited to 2 glasses a night).  You'll come back looking and feeling better than ever and have at least ten new girlfriends : ) 

We have two rooms left...I can't wait to escape with my girls!  Stay tuned for more Island info, Grenadian chocolate and real testimonials from our last two escapes!

It's a belly boom! We currently have 20+ Lithers who are expecting in our regular level classes.  I love that OBGYN's are recognizing that Lithe is a safe and very effective way to alleviate water weight, sculpt muscle and keep your butt (and belly) where it should be throughout your pregnancy. 

Belly up to the barre and the bands-it's great for baby, you'll bounce back quicker, the endorphin quotient is off the charts and some women even claim that they look better then before they delivered.  I agree!  Many of you are Lithing til' the very end are looking and feeling fantastic.  Stay tuned for some Lithe Mama belly shots!
