A love of Lithe

In some of my other posts, I have mentioned my love for Lithe Method studio. It was the first place I went when I needed to change my workout and remains my favorite place to sweat it out. Well, earlier this month, I marked my Lithe-aversary! Waking up to the email titled, “Happy Anniversary from Lithe Method,” immediately made me smile.

Remembering that May night four years ago

I could barely do the moves prompted by the instructor even though I had been going to the gym daily. I left the Medical Tower on 17th Street to head home to my apartment. My legs were Jello, my abs were pained, and my arms were dead. Walking down the stairs, I felt like my legs would give out, and I’d fall on my face. If you had told me then that I would now be at a Lithe Method studio almost every day, I may not have believed you because getting through that second Immersion class seemed terrifying.

I went back and never looked back!

The recent PhillyMag article, The Cult of Lithe Method: Going Beyond the Exercise Mat with Lauren Boggi, rang true to me. I wake up at 5:30AM to get to a 6AM class and when I lived in Bella Vista, I’d wake up at 5AM to make it in time. I make it a point to try every class even if it’s only once; I feel the need to know what each class entails.

It’s all about finding what is right for you!

This is the right place for me. I have gone through a complete transformation from how I look to how I view food to how I feel. I’ve seen amazing results in myself and in others, made great friends, and still leave classes feeling sore. I love going into the studio, seeing friends, and killing it in a 60 minute class. Sure, some days, I am not as motivated but the amazing instructors and women in class help push me through it.

I am so grateful to be a part of this amazing, empowered community and look forward to many more years!
