    Thank you to everyone who scored the new Hardcore workouts so that the user rankings (originally compiled by the lovely Sabine) could be updated.

    I list below all of Cathe’s workouts categorized and ranked from easiest to hardest, using a scale of 1 to 10. This should be of benefit to anyone considering future purchases of Cathe’s workouts.

    Some notes on the rankings:

    The rankings were compiled by taking an average of everyone’s responses for each workout. These averages are based on the responses of approximately 25-30 users.

    The focus of ranking is on workout intensity as opposed to complexity

    1 = A workout that is quite easy and well suited to beginners
    5 = A workout that is not easy, not hard and well suited to intermediate exercisers
    10 = A workout that has an 'OH MY GOSH' factor, is very intense, and challenges even the most advanced exerciser

    WORKOUT RANKINGS:

    • Get in Shape for Your Wedding (weight portion only)- 3.44
