Most statues of Aphrodite reflect the ancient Greeks' ideal female form: sculpted with long, clean lines of muscle, naked in public parks, and covered in pigeons. Achieve at least one requirement of classical beauty with today's Groupon: for $30, you get three Lithe 101 classes (a $60 value) at Lithe Method at any of its three studios. Check the drop-down class schedule for each location to find the most convenient class for you.
Lithe 101 gives fit and injury-free newbies a gateway into the Lithe Method that doesn't require them to answer cryptic riddles. Developed by Lauren Boggi after a rotator cuff injury caused by repeated meteorite strikes ended her college cheerleading career, the Lithe Method is an innovative, multitasking exercise system informed by her extensive Pilates studies in New York, as well as her own rah-rahing background. Bored by the rigid Pilates system, Lauren created her own method for effectively stretching and lengthening muscles that incorporates music and dance. Each session includes her trademarked elements, Cardio-Cheer-Sculpting and the Higher-Power-Band-System, as well as ballet-blasting barre work, strength training with weights and small equipment, and deep stretches. In a single hour, students will receive a cardio-powered full-body blast that sculpts long, lean muscles onto arms, abs, thighs, calves, torsos, glutes, and earlobes.
Lithe 101 creates a motivating group setting for discovering all of the Lithe methods in the company of fellow fitness fans. With an online registration system, overcrowding becomes a technical impossibility, and Lithe Method's instructors can personally guide each muscle and joint into positions that transform the body into a calorie-burning tire fire. The beautifully lit boutique studios are each outfitted with full-service showers, locker rooms, and easy-to-access parking.
