Lithe Method brings its cheerleading-based workout to Los Angeles


Ready? Okay! This week, the popular Philadelphia workout hosts pop-up-style sweat sessions in LA—and announces plans for a West Hollywood studio this fall.

Lithe Method—a high-energy cardio-sculpting workout based on cheerleading power moves—is already responsible for the toned limbs, high tushes, and upbeat energy of Philadelphia women.

Now, after opening three studio locations and building a huge following in the city of brotherly love, founder Lauren Boggi is bringing the workout to Los Angeles, with a Lithe Method tour this weekend and plans for a private studio (as opposed to group classes) in West Hollywood, slated for late fall.

“Los Angeles is so far from my home base, but I know it will explode there,” says Boggi. “I feel like it’s the next place to be.”

Lithe Method nearly opened a New York City studio in 2012, but the plans fell through due to a real estate issue. “When New York didn’t happen, so many people thought that [their city] was next,” she says. “We’re still working out real estate in New York, but Los Angeles is a huge deal. It’s our first studio outside of Philly.”

Held on the Palihouse West Hollywood rooftop on August 15 and 16, Boggi will teach eight classes over the two days. Lithe Method will also be on deck after classes with a selection of its own Lithe Foods, cold-pressed juices, and green juice popsicles.

Earlier this summer the petite powerhouse kicked off the tour in Seoul, Korea, followed by stops in Dallas, Buenos Aires, and Shanghai, and she will continue on to New York City on September 12 and 13, all leading up to the launch of Lithe Method’s online workout platform later this year.

As for a permanent West Hollywood studio, Boggi is saying “Ready? Okay!” Her plan is to offer private sessions to start, with the intention of adding group classes down the road, she explains. Popular Lithe Method instructor Sophie Oh will spearhead training the West Coast instructors.

And don’t worry, pom-poms aren’t required. But wait till you see the array of Lithe ankle weights and toning props…  —Jamie McKillop
