Ashlyn Rich

Owner and Founder of Sweat House OC

Ashlyn is a native southern California resident who, growing up, was always into sports and fitness. She lives with her husband and 3 kids (Logan, Mason, and Savannah) in Laguna Niguel, CA. 

Ashlyn worked many years in the mental health world as a behavior therapist for children with autism and studied psychology and education at Antioch University. While going to school to become a school teacher, she fell in love with Pilates in her free time. After years of taking traditional Pilates classes, she knew she needed to be challenged even more. It was then that she found Lagree Fitness. Lagree fulfilled everything she was looking for in her workouts (cardio, toning, flexibility, and strength training) Not only was it crazy challenging, but to this day, it still has her shaking and sweating. After taking years of Lagree Fitness classes at studios all over the South Bay and the Orange County area, she finally decided it was time time to change paths from a school teacher to a fitness studio owner. 

Helping others is her passion and she believes this can be done here at Sweat House. Her goal is to change lives through fitness, movement, music, community, and physical well being. Creating a space where others feel empowered and welcome has always been a priority. She hopes that you find that at Sweat House and welcomes you to the Sweat House family! 

When she’s not at the studio, Ashlyn loves vacationing, country music concerts, wine nights with her girlfriends, and spending as much time with her family as possible. 
“Music is my therapy, Lagree is my addiction”-Ashlyn Rich

What’s your favorite thing about owning the studios? 
Over the past 6 years, I have seen so many friendships made, body transformations, and a community built on the love for Lagree and personal wellbeing. I am so grateful to be a part of this tribe of amazing men and women who are so supportive and encouraging of one another. While I LOVE seeing people's goals being crushed, I live for the community that has been built. We have the best clients!

Pam Weber

Co-Owner of Sweat House San Clemente

Mom, teacher, beach lover, outdoor enthusiast, Pam is a southern California native who has been a fitness lover her whole life.  As a child, Pam saw her first bodybuilding competition on TV, and loved the idea of being a strong, fit woman.  Bodybuilding never became a hobby, but she danced and played soccer competitively from childhood through high school.  After college, marriage, and two kids, she developed a love of long distance running and has run over 15 marathons and half marathons.  Her knees decided running was not for her any more, and luckily she found Lagree fitness.  Her passion for fitness, helping and teaching others, and high intensity workouts are all a part of why she has stuck with Lagree for the past 6 1/2 years, and why she decided to become a studio owner with Ashlyn.  Pam loves teaching Lagree because it’s the most effective, functional, and low-impact workout she’s found. The physical workout helps her mind become clearer, helps her relieve stress, and truly be happy  – feeling strong and empowered in body, mind, and in spirit is her wish for every client who comes to Sweat House.

Pam lives in San Clemente with her two daughters, Sophie and Chloe.  When she's not at the studio, Pam teaches 2nd grade at Palisades Elementary School in Capo Beach.  She loves traveling, laying on the beach with a good book, and spending time with her family and friends.

What is your favorite part of teaching Lagree?
I love pushing clients to do what they didn't know (or didn't think) they could do.  I love the moaning and groaning during class and the big thank you after.  During the 50 minutes of class, I am a leader, coach, and therapist - but the best part of teaching is the relationships I develop with clients :)

Sharnee Lee Scott

Master Trainer

Hey all! I moved from Australia to California to pursue my passion for Lagree Fitness 2 years ago. I love to not only teach Lagree at the Sweat House but I also passionately certify trainers across the USA and abroad as a Lagree Master Trainer.  My passion for movement stems from my extensive dance background (classical ballet, jazz, and lyrical dance). Born and raised in Sydney's surf, swim and active beach lifestyle, I have always been passionate about core conditioning. With my extensive background in fitness, I love to help clients achieve their goals of being leaner, stronger, more confident, and flexible with improved posture and body awareness. My MEGA passion for Lagree, has given me the opportunity to take and teach many classes and trainers around the USA and abroad.

Outside of Lagree, my creative passion is music. I have had many years of performing in dance and have played the guitar for decades. I pride myself on being knowledgeable and form-focused (clear verbal cues and educational, visual demos and hands-on adjustments) with pumping tunes, emphasis on posture, mind-body connection and achieving goals. Your form is always my top focus so don’t be shocked if you catch me adjusting you. My goal is to keep you safe while giving you a high intensity workout!

What do you love most about teaching Lagree?
Feeling the energy transfer between my hardworking clients and my passionate self within the classes & seeing the incredible results we worked to achieve in their strength, posture, physique, and psyche.

Ashley Forman

Hey Sweat House fam! I’m Ashley and i’ve been passionate about health and fitness for over 14 years and am thrilled to be a part of the Sweat House team! I am originally from Vail, Colorado but have been in Orange County for 14 years. After years of doing PR I decided I wanted to pursue something I was truly passionate about. I’ve experienced first hand the benefits of exercise and healthy living not only physically and mentally but also in every facet of life. I’ve been taking Lagree for over 5 years.  I love Lagree because of the way you can completely zone out when in class and focus on nothing else but embracing the burn and becoming stronger. I have never found another workout that strengthens your core and overall body as much as Lagree. I look forward to helping others be the best version of themselves, increase their strength, and achieve their goals. Outside of teaching, I love spending time with my  two daughters and husband, family and friends, traveling, reading books and being outside (always with a hat on!)

Hello beautiful people, I'm Katie!  I am a Southern California native, but have lived in Colorado & Arizona.  My passion for fitness started when I was young and has continued to grow as I've grown.  I love working out, like LOVE it.  It is my addiction. I'm even one of those people who enjoys being sore. The opportunity for me to become a certified Lagree trainer came in 2016 when I was getting ready to move from Denver back to Orange County. Since then, I have been teaching on and off and I love how the method continues to evolve. Adding intensity and variations is something that makes this workout one of my personal favorites.  If I am not at the studio teaching or taking a class, you will most likely see me traveling with my hubs and our fur-child Charlie.  I love the outdoors, listening to music, a good gut laugh, nice people, petting dogs, and cooking healthy food! Feel free to follow me on Instagram @kt_mckibbs  XX-Katie

Alice Kleis


Hey Sweat House! I grew up on the east coast, living & breathing gymnastics, dance, & soccer. I discovered Pilates in my early 20’s as a means to heal from debilitating back pain after years of injury that caught up to me. After becoming pain free I found Lagree & loved the low impact but awesomely challenging workout. Nothing is quite like a Lagree workout to flatten & chisel out your core! Beyond inspired by the benefits, I had to share it with as many people as possible. I have been teaching the Lagree Method since 2011 & hold my 600hr comprehensive Pilates Certification through BASI Pilates with a specialization in dance. Additionally, I am certified in Barre, TRX & have my 200hr Yoga Certification. As I am constantly interested in learning and continuing my education, other trainings include pre & postnatal training, HIIT, training for special populations & I'm currently pursuing an MS in Exercise & Sports Psychology from CSULB.  I am insanely interested in Holistic health, Fascia studies, Ayurveda & have been Vegan for over 11 years. I LOVE to dance at anytime of the day, love to paint, spend time with my fur babies and husband, and breathe in the beautiful ocean air off as many coasts as possible.

Mimosa Luong

Level 2 Instructor

Hey Sweat House! I am Mimosa, yes like our favorite Sunday drink! I was born in Los Angeles, and raised in Orange County. I graduated from UC Irvine and reside in Mission Viejo. I have many hobbies which include photography, playing piano, long distance running and doing aerial silks.
I stumbled into my first Lagree class 5 years ago, thinking it was just a traditional Reformer Pilates class. Boy, was I wrong! By the end of class, I was a sweaty mess! After a few days of being sore, I was ready to do it all over again. I took two classes a week, which slowly turned into five to six classes a week. I was addicted! I loved that the Lagree Method not only made physical changes to my body, but also had other benefits as well - more endurance for my runs, and more flexibility and strength for my aerial silks.

I decided to further my addiction and become the little fiyaahcracka that I am known as at Sweat House. Don’t let my petite size and harmless appearance fool you. I will challenge you and motivate you to push yourself outside of your comfort zone all while cheering you on being your biggest fan!

-Fun Facts-
What do you love most about teaching Lagree?
I love building relationships with my clients- to watch their progress and to see how strong physically and mentally they get. This workout isn't easy so I truly am inspired by how motivated and determined they are. Another favorite thing about teaching here- the community and the team that I am part of. Everyone here brings such a uniqueness to the studio!

I became a mom about the same time I became a NESTA certified personal trainer and received certifications in Lagree Fitness, TRX, Barre and Yoga.
