Cherie Lily - Fitness Entertainer
Fitness is an integral part of my life and mission. I want to inspire the world to move through my music, which is why I created HOUSEROBICS. When I’m touring and on the road, I may not be able to teach my regular schedule of classes in NYC, but I drop in at gyms around the world and teach special classes.
Houserobics is a genre to describe the music I create, which blends together my two greatest passions, fitness and music! Houserobics is hot, original dance music, created to inspire people around the world to move their bodies and get sweaty!
Each one of my songs IS a workout. There’s a movement, an attitude, and feeling that comes out of each song that hopefully encourages people around the world to release their inhibitions and move!
Thank you! I had a blast creating the “Dripping Wet” music video. It was so fun being able to capture and play with slow-motion water over beautiful human landscapes of flesh with director Andrew Strasser. We created a visual water ride!
It comes from my love of getting sweaty!
Some of the beautiful ripped bodies featured in the video are NYC’s Powerstrike creator and fitness icon - Ilaria Montagnani, fitness guru and adventure addict – Kym Perfetto, and New York City Fire-fighters – Gerrit Nijboer, Mike Tuma, and Viny Finnemore.
Coming from the LGBTQ community, “Werk” is a word that, to me, describes fearlessness and an attitude of “Yes, I’m here and this is who I am!”
It can definitely be challenging to workout when you’re on the road, but I stay fit by doing workouts that require no equipment, like plyometrics, squats, planks, and dancing to my favorite music!
All of my leotards are custom made to take heavy-duty movement and lots of sweat both on stage and in the gym!
Oh my…I have over a hundred leotards and my collection continues to grow. All my leotards are custom made in New York City and I also have a collection of cutting-edge fitness apparel that goes beyond the gym called, Thrills Collection that I created with designer John Renaud.
The legendary Richard Simmons! His class in LA at Slimmons Studio is a must!
