ASHTON OSBY! 23 Sep 2013
Favorite City: Paris, France
Favorite Lithe Workout: Floored and Weightless
Favorite Lithe Exercise: Foldover work in Sweet Cheeks
How'd she land a spot on the Lithe team: Ashton has phenomenal strength and great form. She is sweet, friendly and commanding. Ashton loves to challenge by making Lithers aware that they can always do better, get lower, and try harder. She brings a very special uniqueness to her classes - You'll love the way she "dances" around the room while she teaches. She really feels the music; her energy (and her laugh) is contagious!
Other Job: Researcher
Enjoys: Long brunches, tea, travel, anything with ginger in it, bike rides and runs along the Schuylkill, cooking with local, seasonal fruits and veggies found in her CSA, spicy food, and Lithing
What you wouldn't know by just looking at her: For years Ashton supplemented her runs with yoga and Pilates. In June 2012, she wanted to kick up her fitness regime and on the recommendation of a coworker found Lithe! She loved perfect combination of cardio and sculpting and quickly became addicted to Lithe classes. From grade school until her last year of graduate school, Ashton used heat and chemical treatments to straighten her naturally curly hair. Frustrated with her over-processed hair, she wanted to shave it all off and start over. Her hairstylist was skeptical, but agreed to cut her hair on the condition that she wait a week, then decide. One week later, Ashton left her damaged hair behind and has been embracing her curls ever since!
