Le Sweat was born in May 2016. What started as a fitness blog quickly evolved into a community of modern-day fitness enthusiasts in pursuit of healthier bodies, stronger spirits, and sharper minds.
The first evolution of Le Sweat was the introduction of Le Stretch, a guided stretch class with the use of foam rollers and massage balls. Focusing on recovery is just as important as pushing ourselves.
Next was the addition of Le Sweat classes, group strength and conditioning-based classes taught using bodyweight and minimal equipment. Our workouts make sure to include proper training methods to leave you feeling stronger.
Men’s Health, Well + Good, PopSugar, Women’s Health, the New York Times, Cosmopolitan, GQ, and Vox have featured Le Sweat and Le Stretch classes.
In 2018 Le Retreat global fitness retreats launched, which have been dubbed as the “perfect vacation for fitness enthusiasts.” Our retreats are a combination of fitness and travel to worldwide locations such as Bali, the Philippines, Colombia, and Mexico.
The most recent chapter of the Le Sweat story was the introduction of Le Sweat TV in April 2020. We wanted to expand on creating a broader community and transforming fitness routines and lives by having a go-to training program. Le Sweat TV makes training from home educational, accessible, and attainable.
