Jonathan C

From: Drexel Hill, PA

Favorite City: Paris, France

Favorite Lithe Workout: Rock Steady! 

Favorite Lithe Exercise: Spread Eagle or Rockette Kicks

How'd he land a spot on the Lithe team: Jonathan is commanding, talented, fun, funny, energetic, and strong. He's both a Sage on Stage, and a Guide by your Side type of teacher.  You'll love his classes!

Other Job: Full-time Drexel undergrad, studying International Business and Economics

Enjoys: Biking, dancing, singing (badly), animals, playing piano, red wine, going to the movies, trying new restaurants, red wine, going to the beach, red wine, Lithing, walking home from work, fashion, laying out, interior design/architecture, and just staying in on the couch!

What you wouldn't know by looking at him: I'm a left-handed Libra that is actually quite shy; I'd choose staying home over going out when it involves meeting a lot of new people.  I place a lot of value in family and enjoy spending time at home with my parents and dog.  I'm an OCD cleaner and actually like devoting a day each week to clean my apartment top to bottom. I can't live without some alone time and prefer to live by myself because of it. 

Born with a heart condition known as a "coarctation of the aorta", I was told since a child that I was not allowed to take part in any strenuous physical activities (no sports!). Because of this, I devoted much of my childhood to the performing arts, beginning with singing, piano lessons, and theater. At 8 years old, I found my passion in dance and began taking classes in ballet, jazz, tap, broadway, contemporary, and lyrical. In high school, I joined a competition dance team - think Dance Moms - Except definitely not that crazy.  I've been a die-hard dancer since, and love that I can continue to dance with Drexel's company while focusing on a different major. It was actually the close similarity between competitive dance and cheerleading that attracted me to Lithe! And on that note, I LOVE teaching Lithe (cardio is definitely my thing)!

We had our Lithe Summer Party (#LitheSummerParty, #LitheSummerHunt) yesterday, and your Lithe Instructors teamed up in the name of fun.  Check out Jonathan Cedrone, Jennifer Laucella, Rachel Dore, and Rachael Bridgens doing Cardio-Cheer-Sculpting and an elevator at Race Street Pier.  Stay tuned for more videos!  



You know her as the girl who kicks major butt in the studios, but if you want a glimpse into Lithe Instructor, Meghan Grauzlis's LitheStyle, check out About A Girl on the Free People BLDG25 blog!  When I think of Meg, I think bohemian beauty, flexibility, freedom, fun, Free People, music, and the energy, (and killer playlists) that she brings to Lithe.  Thanks for sharing, Meg!

From: Pottstown, PA

Favorite City: Florence, Italy

Favorite Lithe Workout: Barlesque

Favorite Lithe Exercise: Rockette kicks or Star Explosions with a tuck jump

How'd she land a spot on the Lithe team: Elizabeth caught my eye at the Main Line Studio and we were *this close* to asking her to audition, but the stars aligned and we received her resume.  She is strong, motivational, determined, professional, kind, beautiful to watch, and she has the most lovely teaching voice!   

Other Job: Financial Advisor Services at Vanguard

Enjoys: Reading, baking, brunching, Mexican food and margaritas, La Colombe Coffee, shopping, traveling (and coming home), listening to all types of music (Amos Lee and Ray Lamontagne are two favorites), running the Haverford Trail, and living on the Main Line.

What you wouldn't know by looking at her: I graduated from Villanova in 2006 with a degree in English and a concentration in Writing and Rhetoric. I played the flute from age 9 all the way through college and can still read music and play by ear. I’m a middle child in between two brothers—one eleven months older, and one seven years younger. Outside of Lithe, you will rarely find me in anything other than a dress and heels. My hair is naturally brown, but I’ve been coloring it red for the past six or so years; I actually feel more like myself as a redhead!

From: Huntingdon Valley, PA 


Favorite City:  Tel Aviv, Israel.  So far anyway… there are so many places I want to see.  


Favorite Lithe Workout: Action Figure!  It’s so challenging and so fun. I love how the wrist and ankle weights really crank it up a notch. 


Favorite Lithe Exercise:  I would have to say bow and arrows with the bands.   It reminds me of “The Freddie” from Troop Beverly Hills and it’s a great cardio/sculpting move.  I also LOVE CCS cardio sequences– the more the better. 


How'd she land a spot on the Lithe team:  Jen is fun, genuine, real, super-friendly and all smile, sparkle, and shine.  Her winning personality, fantastic form, and attention to detail makes for a fun, and challenging hour at Lithe; she kicks butt with a smile!


Other Job: Commercial Real Estate/Investment Sales:  I am a Marketing Associate with the Capital Markets Group at Jones Lang LaSalle.


Enjoys: I am a huge foodie.  I love trying new foods and restaurants and am a complete nerd about it.   I also love running, the beach, reading books, being outside… oh – and hair and makeup.  I could get lost for days in Sephora.  
What you wouldn't know by looking at her:  I can sing.  Opera. (right?- so random, I know)  I started studying voice in college and I just really loved it.  I sang all the way through school (I was in not one, but TWO choirs) and was actually a member of the Mendelssohn Club of Philadelphia for a few years after I graduated.

Maggie SR

From: Skowhegan, Maine

Favorite City: Paris

Favorite Lithe Workout: Rock Steady and Tight End

Favorite Lithe Exercise: CCS sequences from Rock Steady and Sleeveless 2.0; any standing legwork with bands

How'd she land a spot on the Lithe team?  Maggie is a strong, fun, and motivational teacher who really wants to spread the Lithe love.  And, she is tough in the best way possible - She doesn't put up with lithe stalling, yet she's really able to coach those last few reps out of you with a smile.  Maggie says that teaching to her means that she is "paying it forward": Lithe has given her such strength and increased her self-love, that she wants to share those powerful feelings with lithers as she continues to grow as an instructor.

Other Job: 9th grade reading intervention teacher in North Philadelphia.

Enjoys: Cuddling with life partners (husband, son, four-legged friends); dark chocolate and white wine (preferably together!); cooking and baking for loved ones; laughter; impromptu family dance parties; perfectly roasted chicken; fall (pumpkins! apple picking!); shoes that you don’t have to tie or buckle; nailing a CCS!

What you wouldn't know by looking at her: Growing up in a small town in central Maine, Maggie knew she was destined for the bright lights of a big city. Convinced she’s meant to live in France (Lithe Paris, anyone?) she often dreams in French. Having read every Jane Austen novel at least twice, ‘Pride and Prejudice’ will forever be Maggie’s favorite. Never needing a cup of coffee until having a baby, a delicious dark roast now makes her feel scarily invincible. After being mocked by a persnickety waiter at an Olive Garden for being too “small” to finish the ‘Tour of Italy’ triple entrée, Maggie polished it off just to prove her point.
