I have been exercising with Cathe Videos for over 15 years. They helped me get back into shape after my two pregnancies. What I did not realize for many years was that regular exercising was also helping me manage my auto immune diseases.
My story isn’t about weight loss. It isn’t about increasing strength either. Nope. It’s about finding my true passion in life and, more importantly, doing something about it! You see, I consider myself lucky to have someone inspiring me each and every day. She is someone who pushes me to do my best and has […]
This is a success story with 2 parts.. Part one: I am writing this to share what exercise does for me emotionally and the incredible release that happens… I am almost 54 years old (2-13 -1960) and feel like I have lived many lives…I come from a world of depression, therapists,illegal drugs, alcohol, and cigarettes…From […]
I submitted a story a few years ago and actually won the Success Story category. So many things have changed since that time I feel compelled to make another submission. My first story was about my journey with Cathe through a very troubled marriage, an eating disorder, and an addiction to pain pills. As I […]
I started working out with Cathe and her crew 8 years ago. I had already had a sister that had been working out with her and introduced me to Cathe. I remember the first DVD she gave me, Basic Step and Body Fusion!! From that point on and 100 DVD’s and downloads later I was […]
After some prodding from my dear husband and fit friends, I decided to give this success story process a try.
I have struggled with my weight since childhood. I am not quite sure why, but I don’t spend a lot of time trying to figure that out. Most of my family is either obese or diabetic or both. Over the years, I have resisted falling into these horrible health traps because I have intimately been aware of what damage they cause to the body. I have been fairly successful, but I have always struggled with body image. Although I have never been considered obese, I have never been fully satisfied with my shape.
I had to put that as a title because I FINALLY feel like the real me! I’ve been an exercise enthusiast for most of my life-love exercise. But I just couldn’t seem to lose weight these past few years. It was frustrating-because it was always the same thing-I’d start losing-then I would be stuck at […]
At age 27 I became pregnant with my first baby,I did cardio and was stuck in the rut of a daily weight workout for toning and 60-90 min cardio.I gained 40 lb with my oldest and about flipped out as the scale went up even when I was consistently exercising.
Back in the early 1990’s, I used to be a gym rat, and stumbled across Cathe’s workout Videos and said, “this girl is great!”. I maintained a steady workout routine for many years until I got laid off in 2005. I found another job a few months later, but with the pressures of a new […]
In November of last year, I began noticing pain in my elbow. Unfortunately the pain grew and eventually I was diagnosed with tennis elbow. My doctor recommended rest and avoiding any activity that would irritate it. This was very discouraging as I would have to stop doing weight-bearing exercises. I really enjoy working out and […]
