our story

Lithe is all about inspiring people to lead fit, hip, healthy lives and empowering people through movement.

When Founder & CEO, Lauren Boggi, created the Lithe Method® in 2005, it became the very first fitness regimen to permanently break boredom by offering multiple, ever-changing workouts at varying intensities that could be catered to any client’s individual needs.


As a former cheerleader, dancer, and Pilates instructor, Lauren was looking for a fun, creative, effective workout that she just couldn’t find in the traditional fitness arena. So, she decided to combine the best of her cheerleading, dance, and Pilates background to create her own proprietary Cardio-Cheer-Sculpting® technique. Soon, she took her passion for fitness and love of movement to new heights with her workout phenomenon, the Lithe Method.


Lauren opened her first studio in the up-and-coming Northern Liberties section of Philadelphia in 2005, and immediately garnered a dedicated clientele. In 2007, she opened Lithe Method Rittenhouse in Philadelphia’s prestigious Rittenhouse Square neighborhood and classes (and waitlists!) were filled immediately. Her popular blog, fithiphealthy.com, followed and provided an opportunity to incorporate additional pillars of a healthy, empowering lifestyle by discussing all things fitness, fashion, and food.


As the Lithe Method workout grew into a Philadelphia cult following and blog readership exploded across the globe, Lauren quickly realized that the community was hungry for the same sort of whole body, whole life “Lithestyle” she had always envisioned. So, when she opened her third studio in Philadelphia’s Old City section in 2011, she brought to life the remaining components of her brand: Lithe Foods, her custom line of lean, local, seasonal a la carte items and meal plans, and her own luxe studio-to-street line of activewear, Lithe Wear.


In 2012, Lithe’s fourth location opened it’s doors to the women of Philadelphia’s Main Line, and a flagship NYC studio is coming soon.
