PROGRAMMING TIPS FOR FALL 22 Sep 2014
I've heard from many Lithers, when they first start Lithing, that they were already working out every day, thinking that they were "fit" and had just hit that inevitable plateau with their results. Then, they realize, Lithe.Is.Different.
I specifically designed Lithe around a sculpting regimen and cheer-based cardio (Cardio-Cheer-Sculpting®) that gives you unparalleled results … and I've put a system in place via our scheduling key that assures you will never plateau. By constantly updating and adding workouts, customizing classes to the season, and orchestrating the monthly class schedules so you almost can't avoid variety in your workout, you'll never get bored and never stop seeing results.
To everything, there is a season ...
Just like eating seasonally is important, it’s just as important to work your body in unison with the seasons and what you’re are taking in food-wise. During the fall, we get back to basics with the "bones" of Lithe. Our classic, (and brand new!) grounded, sculpting workouts return to the studios in a big way: Higher Power, Waspie, Hot Legs, Cinch, Thinny, Hi-Top, and Skinny Jeans take the place of spring and summer's high-energy favorites (Spirit, Rock Steady, Rah). Why? We turn inward and are more lethargic and tight as the weather turns cool. Guess what? Your body knows this, too! Without even realizing it, you ground your body for colder weather as well as decreasing sunlight and serotonin levels. Have you been eating processed, starchy food? Try to stop. Right now is a crucial time to winterize your diet and balance your body and blood sugar with more protein (veggie or animal) and nutrient-rich veggies.
So remember, to get the most out of Lithe right now embrace the variety (and the classics) and continue to push yourself (hold those bands longer and pick up those 5, 8, and 10 pound weights!). You'll love the results!
